Somos has been one of my favorite bands for the past couple of years. Mostly because I saw them "by accident" and from that moment on, I fell in love with their discography. And their 2014 release, Temple of Plenty, is an album I return to constantly. It's one of the few albums that I have stuck in my head right when I wake up.
And one of the songs that usually starts my mornings is Familiar Theme. It's a song that reminds me of what it feels/felt like to be in a relationship that's everything but exciting. I know the song could be read as something about someone who feels stuck in their life. But when I first heard this song, I was in a place where I felt like I was in a relationship that had become boring.
It's an awful feeling to have. Knowing that you're with someone who you loved being around at one point and then realizing something disappeared. Or something changed. And it's one of those things where I would got to bed every night hoping that the next day would be more exciting than the last. And, unfortunately, that's never the case.
What you had is never coming back, what you had is never coming back. I need a window to see out of, I need some time so I can count down. To the day that I could tell you, that I know just where I’m going.
