LYRICS: Lucy Wainwright Roche

“Seek and Hide” [featuring Colin Meloy]

Years ago, I saw Lucy Wainwright Roche perform live and I remember being floored by her gorgeous voice and incredibly powerful lyrics. So I wasn’t surprised the other day when I was instantly grabbed by her new single.

On this track, her vocals soar, and harmonies from Colin Meloy of the Decemberists fit perfectly. I find the words to be so beautiful and the feelings beneath them, so universal:

“I fell in love last year
It’s not a thing I do a lot
Pack up all my lonely habits
And give it all I got

And when the winter came
I thought I would be different but I’m not
I’m just the same old sorry kettle
Calling blackest pot

You gotta watch it all change
You gotta watch it all stay the same”

Lucy Wainwright Roche
