"This chapter is over, he's not coming home. Her heart in her throat as she falls to the floor..."

Not often will a track wow me nearly so much as this one. Gorgeous and haunting, this is (according to Walker herself) the story of a young woman who reels from the death of her soldier husband while pregnant with his child. The background, with beautiful piano and lush with instrumentation, gives me goosebumps. Listening to this song is like walking down a forest path in winter with no coat; the cold runs down your spine and threatens to freeze you from the inside out, but the view is so gorgeous that it's completely worth it.
