The song.

I love the movie Saved. Completely adore it. I may actually go watch it after this, even though I have other stuff to do right now, but that’s besides the point. I absolutely adore the characters in the film, especially because I actually know someone exactly like the antagonist. The similarities are truly frightening.

There’s this one song in the movie that I’ve always liked but have never known the title or artist, and I finally figured it out! We were playing a Coldplay radio station the other day at work, and it all of a sudden came on. The song is called “In the Sun”, and it’s originally by Joseph Arthur. Coldplay and REM’s Michael Stipe did a cover of it for a Hurricane Katrina benefit. And, I have to say, it must truly be miraculous because I deeply hate both Coldplay and REM, so the fact that I like the cover as well as the original is pretty dang impressive. Anyway, it’s a gorgeous song. I’m not really religious, but I do believe in God–and one of the main reasons I do is because I’m lucky enough to have heard music that has to have been inspired by something divine (see William Byrd’s “Ave Verum Corpus”).

Have a listen: Joseph Arthur’s “In the Sun”

Have a look:

I picture you in the sun wondering what went wrong
And falling down on your knees asking for sympathy
And being caught in between all you wish for and all you seen
And trying to find anything you can feel that you can believe in

May God’s love be with you
Always
May God’s love be with you

I know I would apologize if I could see your eyes
cause when you showed me myself I became someone else
But I was caught in between all you wish for and all you need
I picture you fast asleep
A nightmare comes
You cant keep awake

May God’s love be with you
Always
May God’s love be with you

cause if I find
If I find my own way
How much will I find
If I find
If I find my own way
How much will I find
You

I dont know anymore
What its for
Im not even sure
If there is anyone who is in the sun
Will you help me to understand
cause I been caught in between all I wish for and all I need
Maybe youre not even sure what its for
Any more than me

May God’s love be with you
Always
May God’s love be with you
