song 14: top of the world  
So, I've been working on this other song (a vampiretastic "Scarborough Fair", if you must know, and it's a little bit for lady_moriel cos she's awesome), but the lyrics just... aren't doing what I want them to, and it's been a week, and it's driving me insane, so I learnt to play one of my favourite songs by one of my very favourite songwriters in the meantime, so as not to leave us all hanging. Seriously. This song has made me cry more than once. Singing it is a little bit of a magical experience.

Top of the World

Donating would make me very, very happy, and less likely to starve to death in college.

Jo, this is absolutely stunning. The layering of your voice at the end, especially, just made my heart seize -- it's beautiful. ♥
