    General CommentI think this song in a reflection of the madeleine and tea passage of Marcel Proust's "Swann's Way."

    The first line is obviously the first initial taste of the combination, by the end there's the sense of familiarity.

    The second line is obviously about the growing sensation of the memory which has not fully presented itself yet

    The third line is the true remembrance of the memories of Combray, and his aunt and the indulgence of the great days walking through the gardens and the memories of the churches of Combray,

    The last line elaborates on the passage as the memory has been remembered and begins to peter out. It's really poses an interesting view of the protagonist of the story, Marcel, as possibly showing early signs of alzheimers and having his final vivid memories before he finally slips into cenility.

    Or, it's not really about anything. One or the other.

    General CommentQuite possibly--no, definitely--the pinnacle of Metric's songwriting.
