The Heart Breaker
For my birthday, I want to see them.
I just hope that by my birthday I finally have someone significant to share it with, just so that when I see them live, the lyrics won't get to me as much.
I'm kidding, you could shoot me now. Up Dharma Down has always been such a heart-breaking band. They're proof that most great writing whether it's for music, literature or just a plain blog entry, involves a lot of tragedy and loss and confusion and anger (and of course, the omnipresent love). Don't you agree? But don't ever confuse a bitter, pathetic angry post with great, tragic writing okay? There's an ocean of a difference.
So I haven't given myself time to digest what Armi sings here, but surface value is already a 100 for me. What more if I finally get to sit down and read the lyrics, right?
God bless them for capturing how pain ought to sound like (in my opinion at least).
Such a great band.
