Damien Rice is a great artist! He's Irish and was part of a rock band called Juniper in the 1990s. The band got fucked over by the label because of shitty politics. Post that Rice went to Tuscany and worked as a farmer. Later he busked throughout Europe before returning to Ireland in 2001.

I like how he names his albums. One of them is called "My Favorite Faded Fantasy". I recorded a cover of his song "Color Me In" from the same album sometime back and I want to share it with you guys today.

Have fun listening, and listen to the whole album when you get time. It's a beautifully recorded piece of art.

Cheers!

Lyrics: I tried to repress it Then I carried its crown I reached out to undress it And love let me down Love let me down…

So I tried to erase it But the ink bled right through Almost drove myself crazy When these words led to you

And all these useless dreams of living alone Like a dogless bone…

So come let me love you Come let me love you And then… colour me in

Well I tried to control it And cover it up I reached out to console it It was never enough Never enough…

So I tried to forget it That was all part of the show Told myself I'd regret it But what do I know

About all these useless dreams of living alone Like a dogless bone…

So come let me love you Come let me love you And then… colour me in

Come let me love you Come let me take this through the end Of all these useless dreams of living In all these useless dreams All these useless dreams of living In all these old noes

Come let me love you Come let me love you Come let me love you Come let me…
