I was listening to music while writing code/programming and this song came one and totally gripped my heart.
Andra Day's voice is amazing and the music's irregular nature drew me into the depths of the lyrics.
It's like Andra Day is speaking to me and speaking for me at the same time in this song when she sings...
I can't hear love 'cause we're at war
And revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But oh, I'm in a cage and I hear mercy say "I'm here now"
And it's the only way out
(I can't hear love 'cause we're at war)
But revenge is so loud and the drums are so proud
But I'm still in a cage and I hear mercy say now
It's the only way out
Props to the writers, Cassandra Monique Batie and Dave Wood.
Powerful, amazing, awesome song.
