"One Year A.D." as written by and Leslie Feist....
I had a routine
I wonder what I'll do today
I've got a feeling
I'll be doing the same things all over again
Again

So here, here I came
To present myself a newer hell
Face, body, and mouth
Place the mirror to me
In every episode, well

Bring all the spaces together
And all the silences ever
Bring all the spaces together

Come close again
Be my pause before the end
I miss you, oh, like a fading dream
And I have a feeling you know what I mean

Looking at pictures
The taste, the smell
Not the friends

And in our old kitchen
Record player never ends
They were once
But now no more
You know that it's real
And they were before
Nothing said and silence gained
And my body grows but my heart lays

Blink hard and set it to ink
These items fade faster than you think
Feelin' low in a major key
Do they remember me now that it's one year A.D., yeah

Bring all the spaces together
And all the silences ever
Bring all the spaces together

Build all the silences up

    General CommentI can't believe no one has commented on this song yet. It's definitely my favorite by Feist. She sings it with such raw emotion. I love it. My favorite parts are:

    "Come close again
    Be my pause before the end
    I miss you, oh, like a fading dream
    And I have a feeling you know what I mean"

    and

    "And in our old kitchen
    Record player never ends
    They were once
    But now no more
    You know that it’s real
    And they were before
    Nothing said and silence gained
    And my body grows but heart lays"

    Golly gee whiz, I am in love with Leslie Feist.

    General Commentyeah i'm right with you. this is definitely my favorite feist song. i think many people havent caught on to it because it's on monarch and most people didn't start listening to her until the reminder. she sings this so good, because she hits all of her notes perfectly and sings with such passion.

    the intro with the guitar is my favorite though. it makes you wanna dance but keeps you mellow at the same time.

    she's special! i'm in love lol

    i think this sing is about missing a relationship, but she puts in the music perspective with the major key reference and also the ink part. pretty obvious though.

    General Commenti remember drinking coffee early in the morning getting ready for work and listening to this.

    'looking at pictures, the taste the smell not the friends and in our old kitchen record player never ends'

    very beautiful.
