This is a beautiful, earnest song–unlike its official video. The video makes me increasingly uncomfortable. Toward the end I peek through my fingers, not wanting to look full on but too morbidly curious to look away.
Really not helpful that now whenever I get this song stuck in my head (which is frequently, since I listen to it frequently), these images also get stuck in my head.
But. On some level, I identify with this man. If It let myself go while listening to this song, I might look not entirely unlike this.
