3.5.15 | Bruises – Chairlift

Stand-out Lyric/s – I tried to do handstands for you / But every time I fell for you / I’m permanently black and blue, permanently blue / For you

This is another song that I classify as an upbeat song that has depressing undertones to it.
This song also holds a really fond memory for me. In my last relationship, my brother became pretty close with the guy that I was with. I remember spending the summer in New Jersey with them, and they would always go off on their own and go fishing or go to the mall, and just be completely comfortable with one another.
When we were celebrating our 2 year anniversary, my brother sent me a link on my Facebook page. It was a video of my brother congratulating us on our anniversary and what he thought of us! It also had him dancing to this song as well, if I remember correctly.
It was such a happy video and a funny one too. So now, every time I hear this song, I just feel happy and I think of my brother and how silly he is. I also think of how compassionate he is for the people that he loves, and thats something that I deeply admire about him.

Yours for the listening,
Kelly
