David Gray - Smoke Without Fire



I've had the distinct pleasure of seeing this man in concert twice and he is a genius. He's one of the most amazing singer/songwriters I've had the honor to have in my life. This song is no different than the rest of the pieces of work that I've dotted my life with. It's just warm and comforting and just envelopes you in an old familiarity. It's a conversation with an old friend. It's all the good things that you've come to expect from David. It's languid and it's deep breathing. I've listened to it a couple of times now and it's not nearly long enough. I need this to be like his 13 minute live version of "Night Blindness". I want to hear more from this song. Because it is so easy and you have a big exhale at the end and you start it again.
