Somehow time on Thursdays always seem to escape me, but I wanted to take a moment to share this song with you that’s been been the soundtrack for today.  Sam Sparro is an Aussie turned Angeleno artist that mixes his sultry vocals with some sick electro-pop house beats to get an eclectic, yet smooth sound.  If his vocals aren’t charming enough already, he’s got a face to match… but as they say, “The cute ones are always gay.”  *sighhhhhh*

Sam Sparro – Black and Gold

If the fish swam out of the ocean
and grew legs and they started walking
and the apes climbed down from the trees
and grew tall and they started talking

and the stars fell out of the sky
and my tears rolled into the ocean
now i’m looking for a reason why
you even set my world into motion

’cause if you’re not really here
then the stars don’t even matter
now i’m filled to the top with fear
that it’s all just a bunch of matter

’cause if you’re not really here
then i don’t want to be either
i wanna be next to you
black and gold
black and gold
black and gold

i looked up into the night sky
and see a thousand eyes staring back
and all around these golden beacons
i see nothing but black

i feel a way of something beyond them
i don’t see what i can feel
if vision is the only validation
then most of my life isn’t real

’cause if you’re not really here
then the stars don’t even matter
now i’m filled to the top with fear
that it’s all just a bunch of matter

’cause if you’re not really here
then i don’t want to be either
i wanna be next to you
black and gold
black and gold
black and gold
