I’m actually quite surprised at how much I love today’s song of the day. I usually don’t find myself gravitating towards folk/bluegrass music, but something about James Vincent McMorrow’s And If My Heart Should Somehow Stop is infectiously addictive. I first heard it in the background of an episode of the show Parenthood and immediately had to find out what it was.
The lyrics are just so beautiful without the typical overly sweet messages of love. It’s one of those songs that has the ability to make me swoon just listening to the words McMorrow croons. This is one that definitely gets repeated on my playlist.
Bonus points for these lyrics:
and there are times I know when I will have to chase you
the further from my side you go, the longing grows
and though I hate this, I’ll still want you,
I will hate this, but I’ll still want you
