song of the day. #32

The National have a new song… and it’s brilliant. I love it…

“Is this The National? I like this…” — my son

“This is The National?! It’s so much less mumbly and depressing than their other stuff. I like it!” — my daughter

“Wow, this is good.” — my husband

Not exactly music critics. But it’s unanimous. If you’ve ever liked any other music from The National, I think you might like this. And if you’re like my daughter who has never been a big fan (I know… ???), you might like it, too.

I thought that this would all work out after a while
Now you’re saying that I’m asking for too much attention
Also no other faith is light enough for this place
We said we’d only die of lonely secrets

The system only dreams in total darkness
Why are you hiding from me?
We’re in a different kind of thing now
All night you’re talking to God

I cannot explain it
Any other, any other way
