SOTD: Lentil (Live) – SiA

Song: Lentil (Live)
Artist: SiA
Album: Lady Croissant
Genre: Pop/Alternative
In short: Pint-sized Australian songbird Sia Furler has been making music for a long while, but her breakthrough came after her collaborative work with UK trip-hop duo Zero 7. Preceding the release of her fourth album, Some People Have Real Problems, Furler released a live album containing some of her old hits and new songs that were later included on the follow-up release. One of those songs is the sublime “Lentil”, written by Furler herself and long-time friend Samuel Dixon, the song mirrors Furler’s charming personality and is a notch above most singer-songwriters’ material.

No matter what I say about this lady, it will still be paltry. She’s one of my all-time favorite artists.

Lyrics: Earreading [13]

sandalsI’m being dragged down, down by the hand
The hand of a golden giant man
He’s crushing my knuckles and splitting my skin
He says he will let go if only I ask it of him
He says girl it’s your call, you wanna fly you wanna fall?
So I shout I wanna get away from you as fast as I can
I tell my feet to move it, I hope they have a plan
“-SiA’s “Little Black Sandals

Lyrics: Earreading [10]

pic-3-augI am a dash and you are a dot
When will you see that I am all that you’ve got
I’m a binary code that you cracked long ago
But to you I’m just a novel that you wish you’d never wrote
I’m greater than X and lesser than Y, so why is it
That I still can’t catch your eye?
You’re a cryptic crossword, a song I’ve never heard
While I sit here drawing circles I’m afraid of being hurt
“-SiA’s “Academia

Nostalgia: Sweet Potato – SiA

‘Colour The Small One’ is flawless. This song is one of my all-time favorites of SiA, I absolutely adore the lyrics, and her low voice at times. I seriously can not wait for her collabo with Christina Aguilera, the idea alone makes me feel all tingly inside.
