Music Mondays - Glass by Bat For Lashes


One of my favourite flavours of the month is British female musician Bat For Lashes - a.k.a. Natasha Khan. This single in particular is part of her latest album 'Two Suns' (2009) which was inspired by her trip to the Joshua Tree Desert in California. 


I love the contrast of her melodic voice with the fast drums. Absolutely gorgeous if not ever so slightly ethereal.


Enjoy!  

LYRICS...



GLASS
by Bat For Lashes

I will rise now
And go about the city
In the street's 
Broadways I seek
Him whom my soul loveth

Went over the sea
What did I find?
A thousand crystal towers
A hundred emerald cities
And the hand of the watchman
In the night sky
Points to my beloved
A knight in crystal armour

And I tried to hold him
I tried for the creed
I'll make a suit of colours
To stop the blinding mirrors
Sew a cape of red and gold
Stifle up the beam
With the perfect armour
With a perfect dream

To be made of glass
When two suns are shining
The battle becomes blinding
To be made of glass
But we ride tonight, tonight, tonight, we ride

And with two suns spinning
At two different speeds
Was born a hot, white diamond
Burning through the rainbow
Flames fell into orbit
To hold eternally
Two heavenly spirits
That just wouldn't seem

To be made of glass
When two suns are shining
The battle becomes blinding
To be made of glass
But we ride tonight, tonight, tonight, we ride

Hey, oh Hey oh oh oh
