London Grammar-Truth Is A Beautiful Thing

Hannah, Daniel and Dot are the people that make London Grammar what it is. Personally, sometimes I love them and sometimes I hate them, but right now I am in the love zone for this trio. Their last track "Truth is a beautiful thing" made me believe in them again. London Grammar's music has been described as "a blend of ambient, ethereal and classical sounds"[26] with melancholy guitar, soaring vocals, and plaintive lyrics. The songs are a collaborative effort as Hannah explains: "I write the lyrics and the top lines. But the songs initiate from all three of us. Dot will write a piano part or a music score. Dan will add some guitars." She describes the songs as "emotionally affected" and "writes about people who come in and out of my life." They make new music for the first time since 2013. And judging by their new album, this break worked perfect for them musically. You can listen to their new track here.


London Grammar-Truth Is A Beautiful Thing

Miles and miles on my own
Warm with shame, I follow on
A language to find hard to hear
Not to understand, just disappear

To hold your heart, to hold your hand
Would be to me, the greatest thing
To hold your heart, hold your hand
Would be to me, the bravest thing

Could you take my place and stand here?
I do not think you would take this pain
You'd be on your knees and struggle under the weight
Oh, the truth would be a beautiful thing
Oh, the truth is a beautiful thing

I wear another thought of you
With so much harm my gift to you
Hide you somewhere they don't know
Deep in my core you know you have a throne

Hold your heart, hold your hand
Would be to me, the greatest thing
To hold your heart, to hold your hand
Would be to me, the bravest thing

Could you take my place and stand here?
I do not think you would take this pain
You'd be on your knees and struggle under the weight
Oh, the truth would be a beautiful thing
Oh, the truth is a beautiful thing

  1. I've just started getting into country music and I would LOVE to hear their cover of Chop Suey. Sounds like it's going to be epic!
