obsession: Orla Gartland

A friend of mine introduced me to the wonders of Orla Gartland a couple of days ago. She's an Irish girl that plays guitar and ukulele and does covers of different songs. I love her accent when she sings, it's awesome. My favorite song of hers is an original composition called "All the Little Details."

It's an awesome little song and I've been listening to it almost non stop. In case you can't understand her, here are the lyrics:

Verse 1:
What is your name?
I'm not asking to make awkward conversation,
I just genuinely want to know you better.

Where do you live?
I'm not asking to be a stalker,
I just want to send you anonymous love letters.

What time do you get up everyday?
Do you sleep in til the early afternoon,
get up at 7am catch the kids cartoons?

Do you get scared?
Of big dogs, or heights,
monsters under the bed, rooms with no lights 

Pre-chorus:
All these things and more
Gotta take them on before I take you on as mine aaand  

Chorus:
All the little details might not matter to no-one else
but i genuinely care, how often do you wash your hair?!
All the little details might slip past the minds of people who are mean
but i really wanna know,
are you everything that you seem? 

Verse 2:
What is your favourite food?
And what is your number, or would asking that be rude?

do you walk 'round in slippers or socks in your house when no one's there,
and do you like your steak,
medium or rare? 

Pre-chorus:
All these things and more
Gotta take them on before I take you on as mine aaand  

Chorus:
All the little details might not matter to no-one else
but i genuinely care, how often do you wash your hair?!
All the little details might slip past the minds of people who are mean
but i really wanna know,
are you everything that you seem? 

Bridge:
Favourite colour,
favourite season,
favourite number,
and the reason
you're still standing here listening to me?

Cause you've stuck around 'til question 23,
so i wanted to know,
do you have any questions for me? 

If you really like her and want to know more....here is the link to her Facebook page. Also, you can subscribe to her youtube.com channel here. You guys should definitely check her out; her music is my obsession at the moment.
