song o’ the day

the Smittens – “Sapphire”

It’s six in the morning.
I’m happy you’re sleeping.
I’m touching your shoulder,
watching you breathe.
You pitiful poor thing.
I think we’re in trouble.

A wistfully sad song, though quite pretty. In my opinion, their best one. The Smittens are playing a show in Durham a week from today, and I’m looking forward to that.
