Sometimes I hear a song that has a particular arrangement of chords, poetic verses and such a soul-stirring harmony that it moves me to tears every time I listen to it. Know what I mean? A song that causes your heart to swell with emotion...one that almost causes a physical ache just because of the sheer, haunting beauty of the melody?
This is one of those songs for me.
It's called "Begin" and it's by The Wailin' Jennys. I first heard the song in an incredible indie film called The Cake Eaters. Awesome movie, really. Beautifully written and directed. And the soundtrack is amazing.
