Every once and a while, an album comes along that captivates me … It usually sits in the CD player of my car for a few weeks or even a month. (Yep, that’s right;  I still want portability AND the album artwork.)  The album that this tune comes from is one such album and, this tune, in particular, I can’t seem to hear enough.

The whole album seems to be a departure from earlier work by this band. Their past albums invoke a folkier 70’s sound than their latest effort (from which this song comes) which is more of a psychedelic pop.  It leaves me wanting more from the band and curious what their next effort will sound like.

The lyrics to this tune are in perfect rhythm with the music.  Poetically, I’ve heard better, but, when the two phrases are coupled with the chorus, the entire piece is thought provoking and captivating.

So, here you go; I hope you enjoy this tune as much as I do …

Time will have warranted all that the foliage brung
Falls to the ground at the feet of the old and the young
Tired and worn from a life made of wallow and pain
Of what will be made is all that remains at the core

Bear the old and the young
Time will have warranted
All that the foliage brung
So bear the old and the young

Awoke from a long one that came on the heels of a day
Where sun would arise and then grant us the kindness of ray
Fields full of gladness surrounded by droves that await
And look for the grave in everything adorn

Bear the old and the young
Time will have warranted
All that the foliage brung
So bear the old and the young

Bear the old and the young
Time will have warranted
All that the foliage brung
Bear the old and the young
Time will have warranted
All that the foliage brung
So bear the old and the young

The Old and The Young – Midlake
