Darling - Real Estate

from the album In Mind (2017)

For Valentine's Day, here is a song about a lovelorn fellow who is waiting for the object of his affection to return.

I dig the vibe of this song's extended introduction.  The melodic guitars and the buoyant bass runs create an almost "loving" soundscape of tone and spaciousness, reminiscent of great 80s bands, like The Ocean Blue.  A minute-and-a-half, or so, later, the singer sweetly sings the lyrics:

The black and yellow finches
That nest in knotted ferns
Which hang upon our front porch
Wait for the warm sun to return

Impatiently, as I wait for you
Impatiently, as I wait for you

The night surrenders swiftly
The moon retreats from sight
The darkness that surrounds me
The sun cuts like a knife, to shine

Impatiently
Impatiently

The birds singing
The sun rising
Impatiently
As I wait for you
For you, for you, for you

I hope that love ultimately finds this songwriter, and others like him.
