New Eyes, Clean Bandit (feat. Jess Glynne)
We’re a thousand miles from comfort, we have traveled land and sea
But as long as you are with me, there’s no place I’d rather be
There was a strange disconnect when hearing those words. In my mind they were true – they said what I was feeling at the time. Yet, the song often came on when I was leaving the place I’d rather be. Usually not through my own choice, either. So this song brings up mixed emotions.
“Rather Be” makes it into my 2 Years of Songs because I like it, obviously, but also because I heard it many times at crucial moments.
