Day 21: Nothing Gets Crossed Out

From Lifted Or the Story Is In the Soil, Keep Your Ear to The Ground (2002)

I’m not sure what I can say about this song that I haven’t said about others. It’s a pretty by-the-book Bright Eyes standard: lyrics riddled with self-doubt, emotional outburst at the end, and a solid musical arrangement. Yet, while some songs end in depression, and others in jubulation, this song just ends.

Notable lyric: Like when I fell under the weight of a schoolboy crush. / Started carrying her books and doing lots of drugs. / I almost forgot who I was, / but came to my senses.
