Usually, songs grow into me. I hear a song once, and if I think I like it, I listen to it again and again until I either decide I don’t like it after all or I slowly but surely come to love it.
But every once in a while, there comes a song that you hear for the first time and you already it’s become a new part of you, and you’re not entirely the same person as you were before you heard it. “Again” is one of those songs. I’m still not sure how I came across it, since I had never heard of Archive, but what I do remember is hearing this song and thinking somewhere in the middle, ‘Oh, my God.’ It’s a heartstopper.
If I was to walk away from you my Love
Could I laugh again?
