of Tanita Tikaram.
1995 or so, and not a bit reduced by time.
Every time I listen to her, I am transported to the girl who would do anything for life. Anything. I’m not sure how much I’ve changed, but I know the pain of listening to her music is real.
You know what is more painful than love?
Cathedral Song is my favorite Tikaram song. I’ve always had my film-esque version of this song’s lyrics, and it does not match the video. Actually all her videos (on Youtube) fail me. But I want to share her music with the world. Only The Ones We Love was the first song of hers I came to. I was 20 and madly in love. I remember a particular experience while on campus. It was winter and the ground was a spread of dread, yet I kept thinking, “Each step I make brings me closer to you”.
Being an ancient heart.
