Athlete - "Wires"

I've been asked a few times about the song "Wires" that I've referred to on this blog. Athlete is a British band that I started getting into a little before we learned we were pregnant. I really liked what they were doing and still do, but for some reason the song "Wires" just stuck out to me. The pain and hope and believability of this song is great. The lead singer, Joel Pott, had a daughter who was born prematurely and he wrote this song about that experience.

The video is just them playing the song, but the words are heart-wrenching. Susie and I watched this last night and it still brings tears. Hope you enjoy it.
