"Now Three" as written by and Vienna Teng....
City fast asleep
Clouds up on the hill
So quiet, so still

Dreams of rain in sheets
Dreams of ice and wings
So delicate, these things

Love, love, love is a word so small
Let it fill up, up, up 'til I can't see at all
I want to be blind, only my hands to guide me
Bring all of you inside me

City fast asleep
Lights hum in the gray
Like her breathing will someday

Strangest beauty cries
One and one, by and by
Now three of us here lie

Love, love, love for one so small
Come fill me up, up, up 'til I can't see at all
I want to be blind, only my hands to guide me
Gather all the world inside me

    General CommentI believe the second to last line should be
    "i want to be blind, only my heart to guide me"

    Now three is likely a reference to the presence of the newborn child, where before it was just the two lovers.

    I love the way Vienna's voice and the music in this song convey a sense of newfound eagerness and restlessness whirling through the mother. When I listen to it intently, the song conjures up images of a woman staring up at the ceiling from her bed in the middle of a quiet night imagining all the myriad of future moments of life and love with her child.

    Wonderfully composed Vienna. Wonderful.

    General CommentThis is like, my favorite song of all time. Although from what I can tell, it's pretty simple. It's most likely a mother's love for her infant daughter ("love for one so small"), and this love is greater than the rest of her senses. Perhaps The third one is the mother's lover, or some other abstract idea.

    General CommentI know were supposed to analyze the song, but I love the melody so much. It's so haunting and instrumental and just beautiful. But I do agree that it seems to be about the infant coming into a couple's life.
