Hundred Waters – “Forgive Me For Giving Up”

Peter Helman | February 17, 2016 - 7:02 pm

Florida synth-folk experimentalists Hundred Waters have just shared their first new track since 2014’s excellent The Moon Rang Like A Bell, as Pitchfork points out (not counting their contribution to the short film Ghosting late last year). “Forgive Me For Giving Up” is dedicated to the late David Bowie, and it forgoes the group’s usual electronic impressionism for something different but no less lovely, a shimmering acoustic ballad lifted up by lush strings and piano. Nicole Miglis’ voice is as captivating as ever, and hopefully this renewed activity is a sign of another LP on the horizon. Listen below.

Lyrics:

forgive me
for giving up
i’ve had enough
the birds are on their way to find me
finally free
i’ll be gone when you reach me
but listen closely
you’ll hear me in the breeze
every leaf
every tree
forgive me
for letting go
long as you know
there’ll always be a way to find me
if you’re looking you’ll see
don’t be sad
please don’t frown, i’ll be around
just promise that you won’t forget me
remember me
