I know I’m not the only one who is picking up on lead singer Ben Gibbard's sadness about his failed marriage with Zooey Deschanel. Lately I have been thinking a lot about how beautiful and fragile life is. I'm not necessarily talking about life or death, but more like the life or death of relationships and friendships, heavy stuff right? Well anyways, throughout this entire album I am reminded of some of my past relationships and friendships and it’s sad.. But like a good sad because I remember the good times and I also remember why I don’t talk to those people anymore and it's usually for good reason.
“How could something so fair be so cruel” is one of the most amazing lyrics I have heard in a long time. I think I feel that way because it’s so simple yet complex at the same time. People say life is not fair, but that’s not true. Life is amazingly fair, we are all susceptible to the cruel.. Fair.. Reality of life.
No Room In Frame is heart breaking in the best possible way. Okay that's all I have. Enjoy the performance.
