I absolutely love music and one of my favorite bands released a new album this week. The Civil Wars have powerful, passionate, and transcendent voices. Currently they are not collaborating {and are broken up} but I hope they put aside their differences to focus on the music. This album clearly showcases the turmoil they are experiencing. The songs are heartbreakingly beautiful and I wept through this entire album.

EavesdropThe Civil Wars

I don’t want to talk right now
I just want your arms wrapped around
Me in this moment
Before it runs out

Oh don’t say that it’s over
Oh no say it ain’t so
Let’s let the stars watch 
Let them stare
Let the wind eavesdrop
I don’t care
For all that we’ve got, don’t let go
Just hold me

I can’t pull you closer than this
It’s just you and the moon on my skin
Oh who says it ever has to end
Oh don’t say that it’s over
Oh no say it ain’t so

Let’s let the stars watch 
Let them stare
Let the wind eavesdrop
I don’t care
For all that we’ve got, don’t let go 
Just hold me

Let’s let the stars watch 
Let them stare
Let the wind eavesdrop
I don’t care
For all that we’ve got, don’t let go

Just hold me

Go buy this album and be prepared to have your heart explode. 

Always,
