protecting my heart truly…

regina spektor :: fidelity
[from begin to hope 2006]

a few months back, when i first heard this song it was easy to enjoy but not until i saw the video did i actually feel it. the visuals start in black & white as life and love so to speak usually seems. regina’s lyrics depict the way we all hold back on feeling, afraid of the possibilities and more often the disappointment of an outcome. the true beauty comes in when what once seemed so monotone becomes full of bright rainbow colors, when surprises happen, chances are taken and genuine love is given with absolutely no expectations.

i hear in my mind
all these voices
i hear in my mind
all these words
i hear in my mind
all this music

…and it breaks my heart
it breaks my heart.

    Fidelity does have a great video. Have you seen the video for her song “Us” off of her last CD? It is quite fantastic as well.
