Music Monday: Such Great Heights

| Music

While Mondays are not always our  favorite day, you can at least count on Music Monday on the Oh, What Love blog. 

Today’s song is one of my personal favorites and has been for a few years now. Upbeat and cheery, it’s perfect for almost any type of wedding:

Such Great Heights by The Postal Service

I envision this song as the song you play when you walk back down the aisle as husband and wife or as the song playing when you arrive at your reception.

My favorite line?

“I am thinking it’s a sign that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images and when we kiss they’re perfectly aligned.”

Ahh. If that isn’t bliss, I don’t know what is 🙂

 

Here’s the video and the rest of the lyrics.

Please note, once again, that this is not what I envisioned the music video to be!

I envisioned a colorful hot air balloon floating over green pastures – not a scene from outer space.

Funny how we see things differently in our minds, huh?

 


I am thinking it’s a sign that the freckles
In our eyes are mirror images and when
We kiss they’re perfectly aligned

And I have to speculate that God himself
Did make us into corresponding shapes like
Puzzle pieces from the clay

And true, it may seem like a stretch, but
Its thoughts like this that catch my troubled
Head when you’re away when I am missing you to death

When you are out there on the road for
Several weeks of shows and when you scan
The radio, I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, ‘come down now,’ they’ll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
‘come down now,’ but we’ll stay…

I tried my best to leave this all on your
Machine but the persistent beat it sounded
Thin upon listening

And that frankly will not fly. You will hear
The shrillest highs and lowest lows with
The windows down when this is guiding you home 

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, ‘come down now,’ they’ll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
‘come down now,’ but we’ll stay…

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, ‘come down now,’ they’ll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
‘come down now,’ but we’ll stay…


 

Light, bright and airy. It’s the perfect, sunny day wedding song, right?
