Today seemed like the right day to wallow in what is possibly my favorite song of all time: Majesty Snowbird by Sufjan Stevens. I saw it performed live in Philadelphia back in 2006 by a colorfully winged Sufjan and I fell in love. Like, I want to walk down the aisle to this song performed by a full orchestra. I don’t think it has ever been released, various live versions float around the internet.
Some lines I love:
Is it the right word you designed for me?
Is it the broken word or good advice I need?
Is the tapestry set beneath my wings?
Is it mysterious, glorious?
Don’t stop, don’t break
You can delight because you have a place.
Quiet room, I need you now.
