Jane Lui Revisits Her First Song Ever – “Yellow Light”

If you’re like me, and have only come to discover the wonderfully talented Jane Lui within the past year or so, it’s likely that you aren’t familiar with much of her older material either. In this much appreciated youtube video, Ms Liu goes back to her first song ever written, entitled ‘Yellow Light’. The song can be found on her album Teargirl. It’s apparent from even song #1 that Jane is an incredible artist. I love the colorful piano melody coupled with Jane’s trademark textured/jazzy voice. Don’t take my word for it, check it out for yourself.

You started, you walked, and you opened
then you stopped, you stood, and you closed.
you knew you could have cured me
but it would have been my fault.

Where were your thin red Cadillac breaks?
Where was the yellow light?

in Arizona, the night, it damn well knew me.
a dent so vast to fit all my sacred saline.
tuscan red sun soon bleeds on
cant you taste the iron?
did you think that I could feel so small
against your whimsical wire?

away, I seek for your hand to be the woman in whoevers eyes
a fool of me to fantasize, how dare I to accessorize.
shouldve known that wind would suffer
when you sent me there running
cant you tell our night is over
against your whimsical wire?

From the heaven sound complains through the rain
frozen by mid air it lands broken
1275 of them, did you think that you can feel for them?
am I it dear, am I the yellow light?
count your knives.
