I completely forgot about this song until this week when a friend of mine played a mix CD that had this song.
“Wrapped in Piano Strings” by Radical Face is a song that will always remind me of her. It’s one of the songs that she used to have on constant repeat on her mix CDs when we were first starting to get to know each other. She has to make mix CDs because she bought her car just one year before auxiliary inputs became standard in cars.
I also was so strangely attracted to the fact that she always found all this new music without even trying, but then again she’s always been the type of person who doesn’t even have to try at anything – she’s just so casually and easily awesome.
I won’t lie. I was so infatuated with her when we first met. She was always – and to be honest still is – my unicorn. I know this song because of her and that its style also just reminds me of her. And it just makes me think of her so much and those times when we would talk about things like love or our lives or whenever she would talk about her confusion about what to do with life sometimes. It was just so unusual for me to see this side of someone so beautiful – seeing a side of vulnerability in someone so confident. It was in those moments that I kept falling for her.
