music & lyrics | the oh hello's



 because nothing lasts forever. some things aren't meant to be.
but you'll never find the answers until you set your old heart free.

i've heard a lot about the oh hello's for a while now but hadn't taken the time to check them out. a friend posted this tune last night and i fell in love with it. the lyrics are so beautiful and thought provoking and remind me of these wise words from my dear friend C.S. Lewis (okay, okay. i never knew old clive staples, but i sure wish i had. he did, afterall, write my favorite books of all time.)

“To love at all is to be vulnerable. Love anything and your heart will be wrung and possibly broken. If you want to make sure of keeping it intact you must give it to no one, not even an animal. Wrap it carefully round with hobbies and little luxuries; avoid all entanglements. Lock it up safe in the casket or coffin of your selfishness. But in that casket, safe, dark, motionless, airless, it will change. It will not be broken; it will become unbreakable, impenetrable, irredeemable. To love is to be vulnerable.”

amen and amen.

what melodies have you been listening to lately?
