The sun's gone dim
And the sky's turned black
Cause I loved her
And she didn't love back

    General CommentI do not exaggerate when I say this is definitely one of the saddest tracks I've ever heard.
    Those lyrics... that voice... I'm amazed I'm still alive at all.

    General CommentThis song speaks to my melancholic nature and the very core of soul, in ways I can't even begin to explain. It's equally haunting and devastatingly beautiful.
    I defiantly have to explore more of Jóhann Jóhannsson's music.

    On a side note: The robotic vocal reminds me of HAL 9000 from Stanley Kubrick's "2001: A Space Odyssey", when it sings "Daisy", which only makes the song even more awesome, IMO!

    General CommentIm not saying any of you guys are wrong. But the first time I heard this song I fell in love with this song for it's deep sorrow melody and I never really listened to the words. Until about a month ago while I was studying the Bible and realized this song isn't just about a man's love for a girl. This song has Biblical meaning. "The Sun's gone dim" Mean's that the worship of G-d is fading away. "And the sky's turned black" means that the world is becoming evil and corrupt and now is the time for God's wrath. "Cause I loved her", "her" being the church or G-d's people. "and she didn't love back", G-d's people not worshiping Him back for all His awesome blessing. Some of you might think yeah sure Bible freak. But it was crazy how I never really ever listen to this song and during my studying of the Bible while i was trying to interrupt the meaning behind some of the parables in the Bible, like the "sun". This song came up right at that moment. But you don't have to take my word for it, the movie it's self speaks of what I am talking about. But without scripture..... I think??? I have to watch it again since it's been years that Ive seen it. Anyways, God Bless and read His word!!!
