In a dark woods paved with snow living all alone
I forgot long ago what I'm looking for

Firecracker lightning seed coming back to me

This is how
You made my heart a hunter

I remember my little seed louder than a dream
I let my golden arrow fly to the bottom of the night
No hounds to guide me no army at my back
I'm gonna stand up

Firecracker lightning seed coming closer to me

This is how
You made my heart a hunter

Sunrise burns my fortress down crumbling to the ground
I found my arrow my lightning spark buried in my heart
No hounds to guide me no army at my back
I'm gonna stand up

Firecracker lightning seed it was always in me

This is how
You made my heart a hunter

Impressive output
The entire album is beautiful-glad to hear this again. 
Lieber im Delirium als dieses Gedudel anhören zu müssen.

Greeting from Bavaria to all the listebers outside. Stay safe!
Someday grown women will want to stop sounding like toddlers. (I like Delerium otherwise).

Jenifer McLaren's voice has never sounded better...
Nice enough but I definitely prefer their harder trippier ambient stuff. Give me Tectonic Shift any time.

Yeah - this sounds exactly like "Lullaby" by The Cure...if you take about 50 tabs of LSD and cover your ears with oven mitts...maybe.  Well, everyone hears different things I guess.
Beautiful.
RP introduced me to this song years ago. I have never heard another song that makes me feel like I'm in a fantasy.

That may be the question.....but this CD is excellent.....I am glad RP is playing this as opposed to all the country folksy stuff....glad to hear this
Yawn.{#Rolleyes}

I'm with you on that one.

The song is amazing :) {#Meditate}
Nope, it's Jennifer McLaren.

It probably is Sarah, she did the vocals on 'Silence'

My first time hearing this band and the vocal is really unpleasant.
I am hearing hints of Sarah McLachlan!

wow that is awesome
So nice to hear a Delerium song that is not 'Silence'!

Delerium on tour in September!!

Leigh Nash and Kristy Thirsk on vocals.

I saw them in 2003 at the Showbox and they were absolutely wonderful!!

EDIT:

Saw them 09/13/08 in Seattle and was very disappointed.  They didn't take the stage until after 11:00.  They had a DJ spinning records as the third of the three opening acts.  Two too many acts for me.

The mid-range was overwhelming in the mix.  The pre-recorded synth and vocal tracks just made for a lot of muddled noise.  There were no dynamics.

Oh, and Leigh Nash was MIA.

 


Quick song to end a party
Remember that Margaret Cho bit about visiting a colon therapy clinic, and how something about the music of Enya facilitates release? So does this song.
Yummy. Dreamy.

LOL! Oh, and very much in agreement with the initial sentiment.
Robert Smith called, he would like "Lullaby" back. :doh:
Am I hearing hints of Kate Bush. :ask:
Classic Delerium - this actually not being one of the best songs on this album, I think.
More Delerium please.
not so peppy for a late Tuesday work set either...but I guess not everyone is working right now! supergroverx wrote:

tedious drivel

I second that!

hm... I was just commenting the refreshing quality of the stripped down production of Hem and Suzanne Vega earlier in this set. This is an example of how the Tori / Sarah / Dido / Kate style overproduction can leave a song soul-less.
You know, I agree. I was just thinking how I was really getting into the song... but wasn't certain I would be able to tolerate multiple listens.

Agree. But still above average of what I hear here: an 8
Ah, memories. This goes easily on a 10-scale, it is actually that good. Go go delerium.

is it me going crazy, or do I hear Robbie Robertson's "Somewhere Down the Crazy River" melody in here... :?

Well said, and in red, no less. Cool tune. Likeable anyway.

She reminds me a bit of Fleming from Fleming & John.
One of the percussion instruments sounds like the "funk" alert on macs. I keep checking my email. I like the song, though.

there's already a number of Conjure One tunes in the RP library... click here
\"Make a Wish\", too, but I\'m a Poe fanatic. I think Sinead O\'Connor\'s \"Tears from the Moon\", which is also on that CD, gets airplay around here.

Oh, I know! I borrowed it from a friend, it is really gorgeous. I especially love "The Center of the Sun" with Poe. She has such a cool voice. Yeah, Bill. I second the nomination for anything from that disc!!! You'll be my hero!! :clap:
DELERIUM: AWSOME
I don\'t like their \"top 40\" hit material, just doesn\'t work for me. But this is very nice. An easy \"likeable\".

I LOVE THIS SONG - I could listen to it over and over again! What a beautifully melodic song. The marmonies are fantastic, and Jenifer McLaren does an outstanding job. Definitely \"Godlike\" - thanks for playing it.
It only sounds like just another pretty song. :eek:
reminds me of kate bush

I'm with you kaw2271 - I hear the same thing and I'm tired of it
what Shimmer said - this is probably my least favorite on this album... but then again, I like the album so much, I\'ve already listened to it once today. :) Matthew Sweet (and Leigh Nash) are the standouts.
I\'m not so hell-bent on \'uniqueness\' in every artist\'s voice or release. Delerium\'s music is full and heady. I really like their stuff. Have heard a nice balance of their stuff here on RP.
Bought the CD on a whim after hearing this on RP. Good album. The Matthew Sweet song stands out as the best. This one is good, but not as good as several others on the album.

Reminds me a lot of Merrie Amsterberg... interesting; --d
I really liked it.. \'Fallen Icons\' sounds a lot like what I\'d expect Kate Bush to be doing nowadays. I have yet to hear the rest of the album, though. Cheers! Blarg!
This band define the rating system's "Sucko-Barfo" category.
I was about to say the same thing about "Godlike" :lol:
interesting. i think it grew on me. at first, i wasn\'t sure. kept thinking of tori, and kate bush, and others. i don\'t normally get into that \"baby talk\" kind of voice/vocals. but i think its...interesting to say the least.
