From Oh Holy Fools (2001)
This song comes from a split EP with the band Son, Ambulance. Unfortunately, I don’t own this album. I say “unfortunately” because it has some of my favorite Bright Eyes tracks on it, especially this one. With a tangible ache, lyrics hinting at suicide attempts and life reconstructions, this song takes you to a dark brink, walks you back, and gives you a hug.
Notable lyric: So I’d like to make some changes / Before you arrive / So when your new eyes meet mine / They won’t see no lies / Just love.
