Ruelle – War of Hearts
Sometimes, I love the rain. Somedays, when it rains, I find a funny soothing comfort in those fallen tears of the sky. It’s a peaceful feeling, really. For me, the rain comes in times when I need a reminder to slow down, stop rushing, take it easy. Because when it rains, I might stay inside a little longer, might sleep in a little later, and maybe read between the lines a little deeper. Especially in the city, a place where I’m constantly plagued by thoughts of what I could be doing and what I should be doing. Always rushing out the door, on a schedule and with a plan — that is, except for when it rains. I breathe the freshly-washed air a little deeper and remember that sometimes, the only thing I need to be is just that: to be.
So, on these rainy days, the music that fills me the fullest is always slow and melancholic. It is reflective and touchingly depressive. I sink into the words, stopping to release the emotions I’ve bottled up too long. Because when I move so fast, I do without thinking or I think without doing. But when it rains, I rain, too:
I can’t help but love you
Even though I try not to
I can’t help but want you
I know that I’d die without you.
I can’t help but be wrong in the dark
‘Cause I’m overcome in this war of hearts
I can’t help but want oceans to part
‘Cause I’m overcome in this war of hearts.
Hauntingly moody, the sound and words of Ruelle perfectly portrays the bittersweetness of the raindrops rolling off my windowsill today.
