I read books or listen to songs whenever I find leisure time. In fact, poems and songs are an escape from reality for me. I remember countless lines from songs that I love, but there is one line from a song that I adore the most, that says ‘I bore a flame that burned a thousand suns for you, but it died’. This line is from a song called ‘I lied’ by Lord Huron. Lord Huron is a band with a unique and diverse taste in music. The melodies they produce carry a heart-warming rhythm which makes them indelible. I absolutely love listening to their songs as such lines tug at my heartstrings.
I follow online podcasts that talk about lesser-known artists and their praiseworthy work. These podcasts introduce musicians who produce remarkable notes with distinctive song writing abilities. I came across this song while listening to one such podcast and have been in love with it ever since. Besides, I like to share songs that are underrated yet bewitching, with my friends and this is one of the most shared songs by me.
This line is endearing to me because it makes me reminisce about the times when love made me do extreme things. It talks about a love that was strong enough to burn a thousand suns but eventually died given the circumstances that one goes through in the course of a relationship. It mirrors the harsh reality of losing passion in a relationship that was meant to last forever. I find solace in such lines as they remind me of the strength of affection I once had towards a person.
