Waiting for a Dream :: Rufus Wainwright

Waiting For A DreamRufus WainwrightWant Two

Gosh, this song gets in you for sure. The voice that goes in and out of echo and that phone call filter, the repetitive piano chords, the drum machine beat, the long strings, the long words.. Rufus at his essence... It's just so crazy soft and relaxing.

With that said, the lyrics are definitely sad. Waiting for a dream to last... He's worried about what's going on in the world and in his life and he just wants a dream to last because that's the only safe thing. It really does break my heart when you know exactly what someone needs but they don't think they need it.
