The Daily Song: Call It Dreaming/Iron & Wine

Christine at Brave and Reckless not only inspires me with her own writing, but also with her beautiful curating of art – both songs and poems. Reblogging her January 26 ‘Daily Song’ to celebrate Australia Day – this one finds that sweetest of human spots where melancholy, joy and hope all collide. And the video clip has some shots of the wide blue skies streaked with magenta light! Beautiful.

Brave & Reckless

Usually its the music that captures me but this video resonated somewhere really deep inside.  For everyone us who has ever felt alone, isolated, invisible.

“Call It Dreaming”

Say it’s here where our pieces fall in place
Any rain softly kisses us on a face
Anywhere means we’re running
We can sleep and see ’em coming
Where we drift and call it dreaming
We can weep and call it singingWhere we break when our hearts are strong enough
We can bow ’cause our music’s warmer than blood

Where we see enough to follow
We can hear when we are hollow
Where we keep the light we’re given
We can lose and call it living

Where the sun isn’t only sinking fast
Every night knows how long it’s supposed to last
Where the time of our lives is all we have
And we get a chance to say
Before we ease…

  1. What I love about music is we all have our on interpretation. I came from a musical family, my father is a composer. I also had a younger brother who was an alcoholic and died homeless. He was actually a lovely person and we loved him dearly. My family spent most of our life’s trying to save him as he drifted. My brother also loved music so this song made me happy to think of him today. We all drift from time to time even if it’s only in our dreams. We are looking for love to both give and receive. My love to you today Carla.
