Her Favorite Records

"In the dark she fakes another little death, and says she thinks that it'd be better if he left. With ashes floating on her breath, she lights another cigarette." Down-tempo alt-country with a cello. From Pocket Novel Mystery's "Eight Days in the Life of Grace."

Hm, a bit late and I'm not sure if you'll actually see this - but I downloaded this on a lark and put it on a playlist a few months ago. Since then, iTunes informs me I've listend to it 39 times, although I've definitely sung it to myself many, many more times.

I'm in love with this song. hauntingly melancholy lyrics with a beautiful melody to go with it. thank you so much for sharing :)
