Riff: The xx – “Angels”

Jul 29, 2012

Being/as in love with you as I am

from Angels lyrics by The xx

Apparently the rawest form of deep love is lukewarmness. Half-caffeinatedly spoken yet bluntly stated as it is, there’s no holding back lyrically for The xx. Real love, true love, harsh love can only compare to the true angelic love this lyricist shares for another person.
