City and Colour April 15, 2014
WATCH Dallas Green of City and Colour perform live on the brand new Diamond & Dye morning show on 102.1 The Edge.
there’d be no reason to think twice
you’d be my sun
you’d be my light
and if you’re not really here
then I don’t wanna be either
I wanna be next to you
Let me just paint a little picture of the roughly three of you that will end up reading this. I’ve seen Dallas Green preform, I don’t even know how many times, but the first time was one of the best days of my life. During bluefest in, maybe 2010, he put on a free concert in the byward market (downtown Ottawa, tourist central). It was the best day a little hot and sticky but, the market was crowded with people listening to this beautiful man perform nonetheless. There were people on their balconies and roofs, in parking garages peaking out to get a listen. And he starts to perform Sometimes (I Wish), and I knew he’d been known to add other songs into it and I’d hoped that it would be this version he would perform, and then it started to play and it started to rain. Honestly, it was and indescribable 6 minutes and I cried throughout most of it.
I found this picture about a week after I saw Dallas. I was super excited that this was the night I saw him, but even more excited when I zoomed in and can make out my face where I was sitting.
I am in a picture with Dallas Green.
This is the most exciting thing to happen today.
