Beautiful song, feels like caressing my ears every time I listen to it. A dedication to the muse, nobody that exists, someone that we're dreaming of, someone whose image and traits we formed with our imagination. Maybe not even someone. Maybe an idea, our own philosophy of life and how we are dreaming of things to become one day. Daydreaming and being inspired by what we love the most, realistic or not, is a key for going on.
The best song of Montreal ever gave us, totally depressive and dark, yet so creative regarding its references, so rich in deeper meanings and lyrics that are going to kick me in the head one by one every time it plays - and I would like to hear it playing for ages. In fact, if I needed a soundtrack for my life, this would be it.
