If you know me, you know I'm a sucker for melancholic music.
Melancholic anything, really.
And this song 'Mystery Of Love by Sufjan Stevens does not disappoint.
It starts with the words 'Oh, to see without my eyes...' and ends with the words 'blessed be the mystery of love.'
This arc sums up the dense topic of love with brutal honestly, and accompanied with the soft melody and fragile voice of Sufjan Stevens - it's on constant replay on my Spotify.
When we fall in love, we fall in blindness. And we hurt so easily in the process (like the film 'Call Me By Your Name' - that features this song - tells so beautifully).
Our heart is more tender when we don't have eyes to lead the way, I imagine...
~Blessed by the mystery of music~
