A Song and a Film

In recent months I have grown to love those YouTube moments when I find that a beloved image or film has been matched up with a beloved artiste or song.

I had one of those moments last night.

They are an acquired taste, but I discovered then early in their career, and I have loved Tindersticks for a long, long time.

I saw the Girl on the Bridge more recently and I loved that too. Daniel Autieul might just be my favourite living actor.

So here is that juxtaposition:

And, because I appreciate that Stuart Staples isn’t the most intelligible of singers, here are the lyrics:

Greed’s all gone now, there’s no question
And I can see you push your hair behind your ears
Regain your balance

Doesn’t matter where she is tonight
Or with whoever she spends her time
If these arms were meant to hold her
They were never meant to hold her so tight

For the love of that girl
Greed’s all gone now, the panic subsides
When I could run, pulling arms to love her
Try to put myself on on the inside

For the love of that girl
Tears swell, you don’t know why
For the love of that girl
They never fall, they can never run dry

For the love of that girl

Promise is never over,
never questioned it needed reply
But she could breathe deep into my neck
Let me know I’m just on the outside

Greed’s all gone now, there’s no question
And I can see you push your hair behind your ears
Regain your balance

Doesn’t matter where she is tonight
Or with whoever she spends her time
If these arms were meant to hold her
They were never meant to hold her so tight

For the love of that girl….

Heaven!
