I love Death Cab for Cutie -One of my favorite bands. It took a while for these guys to grow on me, but I find them to be extremely deep in their lyrical writing....that usually hooks me. I love metaphors. Sometimes I wonder if these guys are just a phase, do I love them so much because I relate to so many of their songs? Aye yie yie. I'm not sure. Here is a favorite song of mine. I think this is the one that hooked me....now I'm in love with the album Narrow Stairs. Ok, I'm in love with Plans too.
My favorite part of this song (well, OK, I'm lying, I have a few favorite parts) is when he says:
"I Wish We Could Open Our Eyes
To See In All Directions At The Same Time
Oh, What A Beautiful View
If You Were Never Aware Of What Was Around You
And It Is True What You Say
That I Live Like A Hermit In My Own Head
But When The Sun Shines Again
I'll Pull The Curtains And Blinds To Let The Light In"
I am always pulled or drawn to songs that reference light, or sun or hope. Anyhow, I love this song for lots of reasons....it represents many different things to me. I suppose that is the beauty of music though, -interpreting through your own eyes, along with your experiences and even your optimism or pessimism really. This little diddly is fantastic. I'm afraid it's leading me to a Death Cab obsessive week.
