Day 104 – Ray LaMontagne – Without Words

I caught attention of this song when my buddy, Sue, dragged me to to watch The Fault in Our Stars at the cinema when it came out. These scene that has thing song really touched me. A beautiful song.

Not all of life is cruel
Not all of life is so untrue
Not all of life is so untrue

I can hear the morning birds
So light up on the branches
And each in turn
They sing of all God’s praises
Yes, without words
Without words

Without words
