Liking this version but doesn't pull me in like the Counting Crows version when I can just close my eyes and feel...
wow *goosebumps* so surreal
foxemma
This is so beautiful... :'(
It sinks into my wish like he hands my hand when I'm cold.
I think this cover is better than the Counting Crows' original.

There's a lot of passion in this song.
Feels
Pandora keeps giving me these weird and sad, but beautiful at the same time songs. I like it. This is amazing. I like it more than the original.

i dnt care how many covers are done with this song.. it'll only remind me of CRUEL INTENTIONS tralalalalaL O V E it!!!
Adan's version is better
I love this song. It is so inspirationa l song and when you listen to she is saying that she cant see somebody and their true Colorado.
Beautiful rendition :)
I like this, original or not.
somersholly
I believe Counting Crows did the original
kay, two things: who sang the original? and she looks very pretty in this album cover :)
finance381
this doesn't even come close to the original!
F**k yeah. I was listening to a circa survive station and this song came on and reminded me instantly of the 90s and Cruel Intentions :D.
holy crap you people dont know how to just relax and enjoy
I enjoy this tune... love the orginial but this is nice :)
Hereover, to durough, the fact that it is of lesser quality than the origional is not a gimick that makes it better. That's just silly.
Nope, the origional is far superior in twelve ways. What makes this song good is its source, it is otherwise empty of all but a few nice harmonic hicups of real quality/inno v a t i o n . If your going to cover a song, do something that sets you apart from the origional. I know, this is a female vocalist, BAM! That's different. Nope, MOAR different, retelling or reinventing, not regurgitatin g ! Hollywood could learn that too.
When considering the "value" of a "cover" one must take into account arrangement, timbre, and host of other things. Although I enjoy the original, it seems this cover has more taken into account the "color blind" aspect, lending itself to a very cold (metallic at times) timbre, as well as becoming devoid of much emotion. It's not that it lacks emotion, and is thereby of less quality, but that it intentionall y removes that characterist i c to be the gray between the black and white: color blind.

Lacks emotion....n o t really my thing. :/
I'm torn, she has a great voice but like others I think it lacks the emotional drive that Adam Durst had when he wrote the song. You can sing a cover but if you don't feel the song it is just karaoke.
Based on hearing this for the first time, I really enjoy it. Might have to check out that Counting Crows version, though.
Nice voice - I do enjoy the Counting Crow version - but a nice change of pace.....
beautiful
lklefteroff
Awful cover. It lacks all the passion of the original.

I like this version more than the Counting Crows version. It's more catchy and Natalie's pretty!
She's fun, but she shouldn't be covering this with her sound.

It sounds mature and nice, but it doesn't really suit her.
sounds kinda like amy lee
sparklestar. s r a n u m
I love this song it is amazing!
To answer the last comment... I think you need to understand the writer Adam Duritz a little for it to make complete sense (he is insecure to say the least)... but I think the lyrics mean that he/she is ready to come out of their shell and experience the colors and tastes of the world, because he is currently colorblind.
lkladyk
what do these lyrics mean? i've been staring at them for like five minutes and am still confused:)
she's way too breathy and the lyrics get lost, which is a shame.
rather hear the CC version.
sounds a little like evanesence? :)
lexybre10
this is my second favorite song by her

*_* <3

Love this song. Some girls from my dance studio did a lyrical duet dance to it and it made me cry. Its so expressive and it makes you think.... Beautiful... . < 3
this album came out in 2006 so I guess counting crows would have been the first... i love the counting crows version but this one was pretty well done too
beautiful song by the counting crows. this song always puts me to tears

The Ben Folds song you're thinking of is "Brick". Color blind is an original Counting Crows song off of the album "This desert life".
akcollette
I am pretty sure Ben Folds wrote this song when his high school girl friend had an abortion.
