I’m not sorry

Photography “Nude #23” by Edu Martins II

I do love a good cover and I do love me some Stars. So on the news of this upcoming release of a group of artist doing a cover of the great Stars album Set Yourself On Fire, you can imagine I was pretty excited.

Well, it leaked and I was pleasently surprised to find that for most songs, the coving band used the original vocal tracks and record new music for the songs! I love this approach, it kept the album Stars, but was so much better than getting some stupid dance mix version of some song.

The first track could easily become one of the top break-up songs of all time. Final Fantasy took “Your Ex-lover Is Dead” and somehow made it more touching and poignant!

Breathtaking. Enjoy…

Stars – your Ex-Lover Is Dead (Final Fantasy)

God that was strange to see you again
Introduced by a friend of a friend
Smiled and said ‘yes I think we’ve met before’
In that instant it started to pour,
Captured a taxi despite all the rain
We drove in silence across point champlain
And all of the time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name…

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
Tried to reach deep but you couldn’t get in
Now you’re outside me
You see all the beauty
Repent all your sin

It’s nothing but time and a face that you lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn’t choose
I’ll write you a postcard
I’ll send you the news
From a house down the road from real love…

Live through this, and you won’t look back…
Live through this, and you won’t look back…
Live through this, and you won’t look back…

There’s one thing I want to say, so I’ll be brave
You were what I wanted
I gave what I gave
I’m not sorry I met you
I’m not sorry it’s over
I’m not sorry there’s nothing to say

I’m not sorry there’s nothing to say…
