“To Be Alone With You” has been an acoustic favorite of mine for a while now. Sufjan’s work is achingly beautiful, much like that of musician Elliott Smith, and demands an atmosphere of quiet reflection and inward contemplation. Whether you know the deeper meaning of the song or not (the lyrics reflect Jesus Christ’s sacrifice – who knew?), the hushed feelings of intimacy are delivered all the same. I almost feel as though this post should be read in a whisper…be verwy verwy quiet.
