Good afternoon (or late morning if you’re just rollin’ outta bed :D), lovies!
I found this on Em’s Blog, a friend from High School.
I am not sure what this song is trying to convey, or what the lyrics mean, so if it’s something super ridiculously offensive...please forgive me!!
I was drawn to this by the soft and beautiful voices, and of course the incredible harmonies. I will always be a sucker for anything that pulls off harmonies well, and am pretty much always humming harmony parts when I listen to jams.
Here’s a tidbit about The Civil Wars that I got from the “info” section of this vid:
"Poison & Wine is a musical snapshot about the dichotomy of love - that while it can be the thing that destroys you, it can also be the very same thing that beckons and builds you. JP and I are both married have been for several years now - and we got to talking one day about what a tug and pull our individual relationships can be. The longer you know someone - and the longer you allow someone to know you - the more the light and shadows inside each person become more vivid. This song was our attempt at being as brutally honest about the dangerous and beautiful process of knowing and being known. (-Joy Williams, The Civil Wars)"
