This song unlocks a part of me that was locked up with a heart shaped key back when I was a little girl. It is filled with a naive fantasy of a long-lost father that did not leave, but got lost, and was still looking for his daughter. It is the stuff of old movies watched late at night on a couch that felt bigger than the world itself, and the belief I held then that all that witty repoitre and dramatic endings where it all worked out were possible. A part of me still believes in the latter, the former though, that spell was broken eventually.

This song, though, it still holds with it an innocence that I do not wish to ever forget, and a vulnerability that life has not taken from me yet. This cover, especially, brings with it so much simple beauty and fragility; it is gorgeous.
