Sweetest downfall. Famous words from Samson by Regina Spektor. As I am preparing to bed, my shuffle playlist hit this song. I stopped immediately in the familiarity of the lyrics.
I don’t like to interpret the song itself for there are multiple explanations you can find in the internet. But this particular stanzas hit me hard, deep down my heart and brain.
Love is a lot of sacrifice. For Samson, whose strengths come from that strand of hair which Delilah chose to cut obeying her race, it didn’t matter. She had done alright cutting his hair, because it’s no difference being with her, he always feels weak.
I don’t know, I just like this song so much. I think that’s how we should love. Very bold and not afraid despite betrayal… because when love is pure, it recognizes pain. And there’s nothing wrong with that.
Off to bed.
