Celebration (a salutation, ongoing), de Day Joy, é, provavelmente, uma das músicas mais bonitas e que mais me tocou nos últimos tempos. Desde o início do tema que senti que havia ali uma ligação emocional muito profunda, um tom agridoce. Se a parte instrumental é algo sonhadora e quente, a verdade é que a letra desafia as nossas emoções. E encaixa tudo na perfeição, o compasso da música, a voz que parece emergir das profundezas de um coração magoado, ao mesmo tempo que caminhamos com a esperança de alguma luz no nosso caminho à medida que as paisagens sonoras se tornam mais efusivas.

Perguntei a Day Joy a motivação por trás da música, mas antes disso temos de falar do disco que está por sair, que por si só contém uma história muito pessoal, de lutas interiores e um caminho pouco linear entre a perda e a busca de luz e esperança. 

The album is a concept album exploring the "death of god", the death of truth, and post-traumatic depression and nihilism. Throughout the LP, themes of "stumbling" and "fumbling" signal blindness and the haphazard and reckless approach to life I took in my youth. Given the other implication of the stumbling/fumbling themes, drunkenness and drug abuse are also implied. Celebration is the point in the album where these two concepts attempt to intersect. I wanted the setting to be that of reflective, nostalgic sadness in the moments just after a time of happiness or celebration - the feeling of driving home from a wedding you've been looking forward to, or sitting on the porch as the sun rises after all your guests have left the party. Still half-drunk, nihilistic contemplation sets in as you wonder what is worth celebrating. What is worth having enough to be worth losing?
The dimly-lit revelation the song starts pointing to is the celebration celebrates itself, as in "a reason to celebrate the reason to celebrate!"
This answer isn't satisfactory to the song's narrator as the closing lyric cries out "God, I haven't seen the light under Joseph's grave yet!"
The implication is that the light is there, but we're still stumbling through the darkness to find it... that's where the album's closing track "Stumbling" steps in and continues the story.

A verdade é que não me canso de ouvir a música. Espero que gostem e que encontrem nela algo tão especial como eu encontrei.

Morning light shining now,
the morning light shining now.
I think I’m still coming down.
When I tell myself the truth:
a quiet night freaking out.

A reason to celebrate
the reason to celebrate!
If I’m in the arms of god
and I tell myself the truth
dying is not enough.

So what I’m celebrating is all my worst behavior.
Doesn’t matter much to me if it is now or never.
The preacher burned out both my eyes ‘cause I don’t need a savior.
I’m looking back at me now and how it all got started.
God, I haven’t seen the light under Joseph’s grave yet.
