Dance record from before I was born on the stereo, playing last rights for my late nights; all of my evenings and all of my everydays. No business in the same place; coffee, scrambled eggs. Starting our separate ways, now are separate days. By the time you read this, this house will have changed hands one more time again. Wherever you are, dialing up friends on someone else's telephone. In someone else's home. Why did ever we part and give back our hands? Nothing but wear between all of my everything's.

    General CommentThis song is one of my favorites by the Promise Ring. It somehow makes me happy and sad at the same time.

    General Commentmaybe the best breakup song ever. it's amazing how well it conveys the sadness of knowing that someone you were so close with has their own seperate life now and vice versa.

    General CommentWow. I completely forgot how great this song is. For a guy who just graduated college and lived here and there with so many great people that must inevitably fall away, it is almost too much.

    General CommentI was listening to this album (Very Emergency) today, and i finally put it together for the first time in all the years i've owned and listened to it. The whole album is incredibly upbeat and happy, describing a really great relationship (most notably on Living Around and Happiness is All the Rage) and a general sense of adventure and fun (The Deep South or Jersey Shore) until you get to this song, and the entire mood of the album is dismantled. Suddenly the relationship ends, and the wide eyed view of the world Very Emergency introduced is torn away for a more melancholic atmosphere, in the same way we all start to see things differently when we get out of an important relationship. It's an amazing sense of narrative that most albums never bother with; it's usually all positive or all negative, and it's really rare for an album to change it's direction at all, but especially so late on the disc. Such a captivating story device The Promise Ring employed here, and i didn't even notice the first hundred times i heard it.
