set the fire to the third bar

i don't normally post videos but i have to for this one.

i love this song. A LOT. and most especially this live version.

i've always liked the sense of something building to a crescendo, but what i like most here is that there's something very honest and vulnerable in this performance which is not present in the music video. it's the way they move their hands, how their voices trail off, the times they close their eyes - it evokes a feeling that i long to capture in my own work.

i keep trying to grasp that feeling, but it seems fleeting - as if i can only really understand it in that moment. 

nevertheless, i'm working around ideas in my sketchbook. things are slowly coming together, and this song keeps popping up in my mind (and my computer screen).
