I have a special bond with this song, I don’t know why. Probably a combination of all the magic ingredients: the sad DADABE tuning, the contemplative lyrics, the strange phaser-delayed guitar and the backward vocals at the end!


girl when you spin it
then you never want to go home
I was asking you for a dance
but you said repeatedly ‘no’

storm clouds gather in the american sky
it ain’t hope what you will find
but there’s a strong wind that will blow
through our hidden undertows

are you set to marry
the first man to set foot
on the shore of your eyes of mourning?
yeah, I think that you should

and I tried to swim to the light
but I couldn’t grab your hand
I drowned but I’m still awake
