"Kc" as written by and Matthew Morris Pond....
I remember you
Do you remember me
There's no way to the heart better than awkwardly
In Canada on new year's eve
You said you'd never seen someone bleed like I bleed
Perhaps I was on

The shaking hands
The hands we'll shake
There's nothing that we've done you could call a mistake
We wore ourselves into the ground
The humming of the traffic on st. catherine's
Breaks the slow fall down

The truth is behind the hotel
The body's underneath the maple tree
The leaves turned red when you killed me
Startled by the saint's river
I won't reduce the complications to the warmer nights
When I did not know you

The truth is under the water
Finally silent I could hear you speak
About the leaves and killing me
Shaken by the saint's river
There's nothing that we've done that could be wrong
It's the only way we'll ever understand

    General Commentthis song sounds to me like a narrative. the author is reminiscing about a lost relationship where it sounds like he was hurt. perhaps he walks through the city and remembers pieces of old memories. "the bodies underneath the maple tree/the leaves turned red where you killed me" fall has always been a symbol of death- of the leaves which turn red and fall from the tree, but in this case of the relationship which died.

    i just can't get this song out of my head. i walk around all day air-guitarring. the chords are simple but beautiful

    General CommentRemarkable.

    "the humming of the traffic on st. catherine’s
    breaks the slow fall down"

    Bonus marks for mentioning my hometown, St. Catharines, Canada.

    General CommentArt,
    I think this song is referring to being in Montreal as a few of mppa's songs do....not in St. Catharines the city. Rue St. Catharines is the main street in Montreal...and he also talks about 'the saints river'....which refers to the St. Lawrence river that goes through Montreal. Anyway, great tune. Anyone know why mppa writes about Canada so often in their songs???

    General CommentI've always thought this was about a murder...or maybe some extreme heartbreak.

    My Opinion"There's nothing that we've done that could be wrong / It's the only way we'll ever understand"

    I think this line is such a powerful statement on the human tendency to make excuses for ourselves to cancel out feelings of guilt or regret. We can't process the feeling, so we absolve ourselves instead.
