Powerful Lyrics, Beautiful Sounds | Sailor & I – ‘Tough Love’ (Aril Brikha Remix)


I listen to a wide variety of music, especially within the genre of house. And I always try my best to share with my readers the good music I find, most notably the free downloads and house mixes.

You may recall last month I went on a spree of posting mixes. Out of all the mixes I had posted, the FACT MIX 337 by Tensnake had really caught my attention. You can click here to read my thoughts on it and grab your free download.

I listened to the mix over and over again, but the song that stood out to me the most (it even brought forth a few tears) was this lovely song that talked about toughness of love. Until yesterday, I had no idea who the track was by, and if it was an original or a remix. But after further research and thanks to comments on soundcloud, I found the information I had been desperately seeking.

So what’s the name of this beautiful song that made my eyes water and made my heart melt? Well, the song is called “Tough Love” and it’s by Sailor & IThe remix that I heard is the Aril Brikha Remix.

The song is one of the most beautiful collections of compelling lyrics and atmospheric sounds I’ve heard in awhile. I know I say that a lot, but this song truly captured my mind, body, and soul. I just keep listening to it over and over again. I close my eyes in drift off into serenity, yet I’m not drifting into an state of mind driven by surrealism. This song makes you reflect on the realities of how tough love can truly be and how you just want to feel safe, but things just aren’t getting better…never getting easier.

At some point in our lives we’ve all dealt with a “tough love” and this song captures the essence of the emotions we often feel when you love someone (the melodic harmonies of the song) but you’re faced with a harsh reality of love (the lyrics of the song.)

Listen to the original track as well. It has these beautiful violins that resonate against the lyrics and drums that bring forth a dramatic romantic escapism.

Sailor & I – “Tough Love” Lyrics

Something you said made me lose it again;
I can’t remember the last time you made me feel safe.
There’s no room for love, no time for understanding;
Sometimes I start a fight just to see if you care.

It’s not getting better;
It’s not getting any easier.
I never thought I’d become so cold inside.

Day after day, we’re wishing our lives would change;
As long as you say it’s alright, it’s alright with me.
If we promise too much; more than enough.
I never thought it’d be easy; not hard like this.

It’s not getting better;
It’s not getting any easier.
I never thought I’d become so cold inside.

It’s not getting better;
It’s not getting any easier.
I never thought I’d become so cold inside.

I never thought it’d be easy; not hard like this.
I never thought it’d be easy; not hard like this.
I never thought it’d be easy; not hard like this.
I never thought it’d be easy; not hard like this.
I never thought it’d be easy.
