Monday’s Muse : The Call

It’s time for Monday’s Muse with Robin at Cinnamon and Honey. I’ve strayed in recent weeks from selecting music for Monday but today I’m back with a great musical selection – at least to my ears it’s great.

I recently discovered artist Regina Spektor, whose song The Call was in the second Narnia movie, Prince Caspian. Her album Far has been on repeat on my iPod this week.

The lyrics on some of the songs are whimiscal and funny Sometimes I forget I have a perfect body / My eyelashes catch my sweat / Yes they dooo but others are thought provoking. Here are the lyrics to The Call.

It started out as a feeling
Which then grew into a hope
Which then turned into a quiet thought
Which then turned into a quiet word

And then that word grew louder and louder
‘Til it was a battle cry

I’ll come back
When you call me
No need to say goodbye

Just because everything’s changing
Doesn’t mean it’s never
Been this way before

All you can do is try to know
Who your friends are
As you head off to the war

Pick a star on the dark horizon
And follow the light

You’ll come back
When it’s over
No need to say good bye

You’ll come back
When it’s over
No need to say good bye

Now we’re back to the beginning
It’s just a feeling and no one knows yet
But just because they can’t feel it too
Doesn’t mean that you have to forget

Let your memories grow stronger and stronger
‘Til they’re before your eyes

You’ll come back
When they call you
No need to say good bye

You’ll come back
When they call you
No need to say good bye

No need to say goodbye / You’ll come back / When they call you

Let your memories grow stronger and stronger / ‘Til they’re before your eyes

I particularly like those few parts of the song. It’s reflective and kind of sad as well.

The song Eet is also very good. Here is the video from Regina’s site. Apparently now the world is on to her. Upon visiting her site it seems she was on Fergusons show last week (I had no idea, I’m not a tv watcher!)
