She Brings The Sunlight

After the previous post, the title could have been: ‘Crap video – astounding song’. Actually the static picture is rather pretty – and is the cover of Richard Hawley‘s 2012 CD Standing At The Sky’s Edge.

I heard this (of course) on 6 Music about a month ago, and the track was sufficiently noteworthy for me to scribble a reminder on a post-it. But the song’s extraordinary (goose-pimple-raising) power did not hit me until just now when I looked it up on youtube

The lyrics are pretty good too:

Well I’ll ask the life
Lighter beside me
There’s no question why
She’s the first, the last and always
With grace she walks
Through my open door
Her perfume reaches
In before her
She brings the sunlight
She makes the world right

And as my love
Slowly undresses
She brings a new need
The need to caress her
Oh and her eyes
They hypnotise me
The feel of her skin
Now there beside me
She brings the sunlight
She makes the world right

And as my heart
Now calm beside hers
The sweat runs dry
Mine and hers always
We’ll have a child
To show life’s true meaning
The child runs light
And so forever sees us
She brings the sunlight
She makes the world right
