Line of the Day: Songs: Ohia – “Being in Love”

“I am proof that the heart is a risky fuel to burn
yeah, we are proof that the heart is a risky fuel to burn
what’s left after that’s all gone I hope to never learn
but if you stick with me you can help me
I’m sure we’ll find new things to burn
cause we are proof that the heart is a risky fuel to burn
yeah, we are proof that the heart is a risky fuel to burn

Songs:Ohia – “Being in Love”, The Lioness (2000)

Every other line from this Lioness ballad hits harder than the one before.  Molina’s howl stings, especially in his repetition of the more venomous statements.   Gorgeous agony through the woefully simple set against a backdrop of ominous organ, industrial clanking, and reverberating chords.  In other words, down in the dumps perfection, with the thinnest glimmer of hope.
