This is such a chill song; very simplistic instrument wise. What you mainly hear is the strings in the background, the heartbeat-like drums, and of course, Alex Ebert’s sick vocals. The song stirs up my hatred of dreams where you totally have the love of your life and you wake up and realize you are just as alone as ever. Sometimes I feel like “Nobody better pinch me, Bitch I swear, go crazy.” Man, it’s almost time for bed, maybe this time the dream will come true.
