Daphne Loves Derby - Cue The Sun!

I think that's a really beautiful song off of their new CD.

"If I find my way through the darkest of days,
Will I laugh about the things that kept me awake?
But if my greatest fear paints itself so crystal clear,
Will I run away or will I hide?"

That part of the song really resonates with me right now. I know that the song seems to have a kind of suicidal undertone/message to it (if you really anazlye it), but I really don't see it that way. I think it's about being in a low place, knowing you're going to bounce back and look at things in hindsight with a laugh, but still wondering what if.. what if that doesn't happen and fear and sadness overcomes everything and keeps you from realizing "the light".. i.e. the good that is out there waiting to be found.

I just watched the movie "Premonition" and I'm kind of in a weird mood as a result. The movie was kind of disturbing but strangely beautiful. In a way I think this song would have been fitting to be played at the end of the movie....
