This one is a bit more straightforward than some of the others, especially in how it relates to the love side of this theme. It also touches more directly on my fascination with conflict as a means to transformation.
Musically, this song actually has a couple of melodic lines, one of which bears some mention. The second one is an ephemeral sound - and next to the blunt piano, it comes off as almost background atmospherics. It’s further obscured by the fact that it is itself made up of two simultaneous set of notes making up one overall sound. But in the end that it gets a moment by itself, and for me that’s the melody that creeps back up in my mind hours later.
