This is the most gorgeous, heartbreakingly sad song I think I've ever heard. I can barely listen to it without tears in my eyes.
Lately I've been struggling with some things (not been a very good week) and it seems like this song came just in time. It's funny how that works.
The lyrics are very simple and very painful. I've been listening to more of this band's music online and already have several albums sitting in my shopping basket on Amazon.
The song is titled About Today and the band is The National, and this is a live (long intro) version to the song recorded at Spin. The violin really makes it soar.
