"Corazon" as written by Justin Rice and Christian Rudder....
Corazon

By the school, on the street
You were dropped of with a sign
"This piano is free"
You didn't look free to me

Cast aside, obsolete
Since they canceled music class
You'd been a refugee
But now I'll give you a home

Corazon

So I pushed and I heaved
But your weight bore down like I could not believe
Had you accepted defeat?
Till the crowd gathered round put away their goings on
And hunkered down and they were cheering you on, Corazon

Corazon

And the expert, with his tools
Said "to bring it up to patch"
We'd snap the sucker in two
I guess we're tuning to you
So I pulled up a seat and
I swear I felt a pulse beneath your keys
To urge your hammers along

Corazon

I was caught, I was stuck
And my thoughts couldn't bind and deepening the rut
Until your first chord struck
Now I search on my shore
But my God you've given another chance to love
And now I'll give you a home

Corazon

    General CommentWhile it may literally refer to a piano, I think it's a good metaphor for people in general, and accepting someone for who they are, faults and all, and not trying to "fix them" to fit your image of how they should be.

    "and the expert
    with his tools
    said to bring it up to pitch would snap the sucker in two
    I guess we're tuning to you"

    General CommentThis song is about a piano the band found that was just being thrown away outside of their practice space in Brooklyn. An artistic rendering of it is on the cover of their January EP. The Piano was basically already destroyed and would break if it was properly tuned because it was in that bad of shape, but apparently really helped in the writing of their songs for their EP a month project in 2006.

    General Commentit's a very pretty song. Very endearing...they're great, why haven't they been given a bigger hype like Arcade Fire or such?

    General Commentits a clever song
    cause if you pay atention to the lyrics or hear it more than once or twice then youll obviously tell its about a piano he found
    but im thinking that its really telling you that you can find a peice of shit and turn it into something beautiful
    such as this piano being a peice of shit... but then making a beautiful song out of it

    General CommentI think the part where they say
    "I was caught, I was stuck
    And my thoughts couldn't bind and deepening the rut
    Until your first chord struck"
    Is about them having song writers block.
    Love it.
