Not that I would use it on this song, but the PSD button works on my phone, both live stream and cache.

AN EXCELLENT TUNE... and it lulls me to the bed where I can lay my weary head.

Nice post 1wolfy.

Love this song.  The set is fantastic:

Porcupine Tree — Point 3 (.3)
Buffalo Springfield — Broken Arrow
The Cinematic Orchestra — To Build A Home

and continues with S&G's Scarborough Fair.

I have yet to tire of this one.  I see myself in it.  A life well lived, but someday I know it'll end..{#Meditate}  I love the tree imagery-I'm there..As a child I used to climb high atop the tree in front of our home.  There I'd swing in the breeze with that tree..I felt as though we were as one.  My childhood was so magical and this song takes me there..It puts me in the moment

Sounds like Patrick Watson's "Lighthouse"  Also a great piece of Art!

Agreed. The song isn't bad, but the Coldplayesque factor is distracting for me.

If you haven't heard CO's instrumental Arrival of the Birds/Transformation, do yourself a favor. It's the kind of piece that makes you stop what you're doing and find yourself lost in it until it's over.

They are so much subtle than Coldplay, try to listen to the whole album.

This is a really brilliant bit of advice. Something to ponder.

Such a gem, this song! Thinking over the poignant lyrics yet again, I can't help but be reminded of the verse in The Koran where truth-seekers come to ask Issa (Jesus), "Prophet, what is the meaning of this confusing life?" and he responds, "This life is like a bridge that must be crossed to the other side...it does not behoove one to stop and try to build a house in the middle of the bridge." The Japanese notion that The pleasures of life are as ephemeral as cherry blossoms was steeped into me during the 20 years I was there, as well...

I also feel that's exactly what this is, and further, it evokes a haunting mix of nostalgia and tragic loss. To hear it played would be: wow!

a friend's kid was playing it on the piano the other day.


 
My contextual rating for this track is a 10 when I'm in happy to be sad and a 6 otherwise (i.e. right now) - so I guess I'll average that out to a 7?

Long Live RP!
