Oren Lavie - Her Morning Elegance



Artist: Oren Lavie
Track: Her Morning Elegance
Album: The Opposite Side of the Sea
Year: 2008

This song IS the morning to me. It's soothing and mellow and perfect for me in the morning, because I'm not a morning person by any means. Oren's vocals are rough, but soft at the same time. The guitar notes that provide the base melody sounds like drops of water, then you layer that with soft xylophone-ish notes and random spurts of violins and you have a very peaceful track.

I was introduced to this song via the music video, which is beautifully filmed. Please watch it if you like the song or just watch it anyways.

This is also one of the few songs that made me go out and buy the whole album. As in,  I went and bought a physical, hold-in-my-hand, put-in-a-cd-player, album. I haven't done that in a long time.

LYRICS:

Sun been down for days
A pretty flower in a vase
A slipper by the fireplace
A cello lying in it's case

Soon she's down the stairs
Her morning elegance she wears
The sound of water makes her dream
Awoken by a cloud of steam
She pours a daydream in a cup
A spoon of sugar sweetens up

And she fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And she goes...
Nobody knows

Sun been down for days
A winter melody she plays
The thunder makes her contemplate
She hears a noise behind the gate
Perhaps a letter with a dove
Perhaps a stranger she could love

And she fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
As she goes in a store
With a thought she has caught
By a thread
She pays for the bread
And she goes...
Nobody knows

And she fights for her life
As she puts on her coat
And she fights for her life on the train
She looks at the rain
As it pours
And she fights for her life
Where people are pleasantly strange
And counting the change
And she goes...
Nobody knows
