Bon Iver - Skinny Love

Bon Iver stands out as one of my all time favourite gigs, as everything Justin Vemon and co do seems so powerful and heart felt. Seeing Vemon sing live at the Sydney recital hall was one of the single greatest moments of my life. If you've ever seen them live then I'm sure you've had a similar experience.

The haunting soft sound of the band playing while a crowd of a thousand people sit in absolute silence, in awe of what they are witnessing was certainly one of the most amazing gigs I've ever seen. Highlighted by the fact that the entire crowd was asked to join in for the final song, leaving half the audience in tears.

I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
Now all your love is wasted?
Then who the hell was I?
Now I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines

Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
