Music Monday: The National – Sorrow

untitled

I am cheating a little bit here, I’m sorry. There doesn’t actually appear to be a video for this song, I just wanted you to hear it. It’s a crusher, genuinely heartbreaking

Sorrows my body on the waves
Sorrows a girl inside my cave
I live in a city sorrow built
It’s in my honey, it’s in my milk.
Don’t leave my half a heart alone,
On the water,
Cover me in rag and bones, sympathy.
Cause I don’t wanna get over you.
I don’t wanna get over you.

Look at those lyrics. I don’t think you can beat that.

From the album: High Violet

Released: 10 May 2010

Down at heels, music obsessed girl who works in admin. Frequently found talking nonsense on audio blogs, writing nonsense on written blogs or when the internet is down, talking to herself. Life lurches from one disaster to another, but at least it's amusing. I like cats and rats. My fear is they will one day form an allegiance and take over the world. You saw it here first.
