I love poetry, and when music and poetry really meet each other like they do in this song, I go fucking bananas.
I wanna talk about everything I love about it all at once, but that would be confusing so I’ll break it down as I see it, by the lyrics that impress me most.
This lyric sticks out first to me
It takes more than fucking someone to keep warm
Quick anecdote; I once said this to an ex of mine
You keep me warm in winter, I said
In retrospect it sounds totally stupid
You wont find love, wont find love in a home
How true, Frightened Rabbit,
Seriously how often have I tried to find love among others crazy like me. We may be sensitive in the same way but that does not make us compatible.
Sadly this lyric hits me hard as well…
I’m drunk, I’m drunk
And your probably on pills
Well said, Frightened Rabbit,
I was on pills, and yeah, you were so drunk! You asshole. We made a big deal out of nothing, didn’t we? And refused to admit it was because we were high. We were such kids.
