I can feel them come back around
The slow migration of our hearts
Back to our empty chests
When we know there's nothing left to win back
Our love picks up slowly in the night
It slides across dirty bedroom smiles
Lift up your head so the sun can catch your eyes
No, I wouldn't leave you for a sadder song
No, I wouldn't leave you for a shoulder to lean on
No, I wouldn't leave you for a circle to live long

    General CommentI know that everyone ('everyone' could very easily just mean me) associats Tilly with Conor Oberst, which isnt fair to them because they are a cute and cheerful bunch of well dressed and attractive 20 somethings with or without the fact that Neely and Conor used to be in love or whatever,but i do think that this song could very easily be about him being the raging alchoholic that we all know and love,how their relationship is gradually falling apart.

    General Commenti never associated them together, just because well before they were on team love is when i started liking them.

    "Our love picks up slowly in the night
    It slides across dirty bedroom smiles
    Lift up your head so the sun can catch your eyes
    No, I wouldn't leave you for a sadder song
    No, I wouldn't leave you for a shoulder to lean on
    No, I wouldn't leave you for a circle to live long "

    so pretty. this band is my favorite.

    General Commenti've never really associated conor with tilly at all. i mean, jamie & neely were in park ave with him, and they're on his label, but that's about all the connection i've made.
    & this song is on the tilly and the wall 7" along with two other songs.
    if anybody needs it still, im willing to send it. aim: planesdivingdown

    General Comment"No, I wouldn't leave you for a sad love song.
    No i wouldn't leave you for a silly dream gone wrong
    No i wouldn't leave you for a circle to love long."

    That's what it sounds like to me, although, i'm not sure about that very last line, but as for the 2 lines above it, i'm pretty sure that's what it says.
