    When she sings I want to hear every word. I don't want to miss a thing; not that her delivery would allow for that.

It's that, 'like you're the only one in the room', kind of stuff a lover gets romantically lost in made, in a moment, to feel as if they are the most important person in the world.

The musician tells you something in sound and when it gets to you the colors may have changed but the essence is just as there.
