From the lyrics:
I want to come to your house God
And climb inside your window…
It is the immediacy of God, the felt sense of God as a person, that is so touching here. It seems I’m not the only person who finds this song touching. It got into one blogger‘s head, and she posted a list of things she wanted to do with God. Among them was, “eat macaroni…”
The song is off the album “Yes Nearby.” The band bio explains:
Zindle and Moore began their relationship busking on the streets of Ann Arbor with Celtic and gypsy fiddling over tricky beats of tambourine, Middle-Eastern doumbek and tabla. In 2005 the duo gathered three band mates and began to record Erin’s original songs. This recording was released a few months later as The Ragbirds debut album “Yes Nearby”.
…which regretfully says little enough about the thoughts and life experience that lead up to the song.
