Riff: Beach House – “Lose Your Smile”

May 14, 2018

Sweet lies on your face/Tears are out of place/Sunshine in the rain/Comes in rainbows and leaves again

from Lose Your Smile lyrics by Beach House

Emotions are swirling together like a musical lava lamp, but instead of resisting it they’re letting nature take its course. The roller coaster paints an authentic portrait of how fickle the mind can be, and to reconcile it into one is an undertaking that can take a lifetime. There’s no pressure involved, just a simple go with the flow approach that has them appreciating the ride.
