The Blower's daughter

And so it is
Just like you said it would be
Life goes easy on me
Most of the time
And so it is (he has)
The shorter story
No love, no glory
No hero in her sky

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

And so it is (he has)
Just like you said it should be
We'll both forget the breeze
Most of the time
And so it is (he has)
The colder water
The blower's daughter
The pupil in denial

I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off of you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes off you
I can't take my eyes...

Did I say that I loathe you?
Did I say you better want to
Leave it all behind?

I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off of you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind off you
I can't take my mind...
My mind...my mind...
'Til I find somebody new

Damien Rice, The Blower's daughter

Too much talking in the movie. Didn't like it.

iTunes tells me I've listened to that song 157 times. And I've been kinda sorta too embarrssed to ask but here's my window of opportunity: what is a blower? Like a leaf blower? And we're talking about his daughter because....

just a random person?

I just watched the movie closer and was really touched by it and the song blowers daughter. to respond to sandmonkeys comment about sarah mclachlan, well yes she does have some depressing songs and maybe thats why she is my favourite singer, and why I liked this song so much. lol
