Intimate, melancholic, tender, but utterly heartbreaking - my favourite track from one of the best albums I've heard this, or any other year.
one of the most special lyrics i have ever heard..never to be forgotten. thank you Sylvie,you're a star on this site....ps-the date is not important to me....
Sufjan Stevens speaks universal truths in Fourth of July, and the song's aching, looping refrain is stuck in my head.
"Make the most of your life, while it is rife, while it is light." Q1 of 2015 has had more good music in it already than I can remember from practically the whole of 2014, and this might be the best song of its best album. <3
Somehow, it isn't twee.
