"Into the Sea"

Blondfire doesn't have a single song that I don't like and there are only a couple that I don't love. "Into the Sea" is one of my favorites of favorites because it reminds me of C.S. Lewis. Don't know what he'd think of that. . . oh, well, he can't worry about it now, anyway. This song has a nice smooth sound with lyrics that put you right in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. "All across this great divide, we'll make friends below the tide." Like Lucy when she's looking down into the water and sees the Sea Girl, instantly becoming friends with her.

"So come with me, into the sea. Walk with me and we'll be in a different world tonight. Walk with me and we'll be alright. Don't let go, the water's warm, we'll be safe below the storm." That's the really addicting chorus, which also sounds a little like his The Space Trilogy. The second book, Perelandra, to be specific. All the "warm water" and "different world" parts. If you wanted to get really creative, I guess you could also say that " 'casue our love is ocean wide" is like the King and Queen on Perelandra, but that's probably a little too much.

Well, you get the picture. It's a really cool song (by a really cool group), so I'm bound to compare it to some really cool characters/settings.
