“Let’s make a movie, You and I
Take an adventure ‘cross the sky
All happy endings end in new beginnings.
I feel so happy that I should be dancing
lets get away today and play.”—Let’s Whisper from “All Happy Endings”
Why is this song so good? I have been a fan of her soulful and often heartbroken songs for a while now, I listen to her last album “Another Country” rather often. I recently took some time to digest her latest album (released a few weeks ago), “See You On the Moon” and I am loving it. Anyone who has ever made a mixed tape for a significant other will identify with this song.
You, how did you get so wise? I take the advice I find in your eyes. Me, I’ve been waiting outside Most of my life, Oh like a rare b-side.
I’m just making you mixtapes with homemade covers. Analog to show we’re lovers, And here under the jacket folds inside, I’ve taped my heart for you to find.
To find the perfect way, Which album to say, I la la love you. With this plastic cassette, It’s not finished yet, It’s gonna tell you slowly.
I’m just making you mixtapes with homemade covers. Strings and drawings show we’re lovers, When you’re driving around in the summertime, To hear again, just press rewind.
Rewind, the world comes to an end, Turns over again, Another 1000 times. But me, I’ll be the same. No, I never change, Oh, like a rare B-side.
I’ll be making you mixtapes with homemade covers. Analog to show we’re lovers, So much rock and roll love in a plastic case, Play it loudly, see my face. I’m just making you mixtapes with homemade covers, Mazzy Star, Donovan’s Colors, Just an audio love letter painted blue, I spent all day making for you.
