This week's Sunday song comes from one of my favorite groups, The Civil Wars. I have loved Joy Williams for many, many years. My girls even listen to one of her albums at bedtime. So, when I heard about her new group, I was very excited. The Civil Wars' music has been described as "hauntingly beautiful" and I couldn't agree more.
I picked this song because I love how honest the lyrics are. Joy says this about the song: "Love has a way of ripping you apart just as much as it has a way of holding you together, and this piece is a gut-level-honest tug and pull of affection and affliction felt between two lovers." Marriage is not always easy, but it's the give and take and the sticking to it that makes it sweet.
I hope you love it as much as I do!
