For those of you who have not come across Sufjan Stevens before……..prepare to be mesmorized.

It’s no secret that a lot of people fail to see their inner or outer beauty, especially us ladies. It’s programmed within us to zone into what we view as our imperfections rather than celebrate the many qualities that make us beautiful and who we are. Sometimes you can be in such a dark place that you feel like your light has gone out…….that your a shell that’s just existing.

The reason I love this song so much is because no matter how down on yourself you may be, the person who loves you only ever see’s your beauty. Where you see imperfection they see perfection. This stunning song to me is about the importance of being loved and accepting that love and thinking, yeah your right…….this dress does look nice on me.

I can see a lot of life in you
I can see a lot of bright in you
And I think the dress looks nice on you
I can see a lot of life in you

This is a very special song and would make the most beautiful alternative first dance love song.

Enjoy lovely people…..

If you like what you hear then Sufjan Steven’s album Illinois is brilliant and is one of my all time favourite albums. It’s defintiely worth a purchase.
