"Mount Wroclai (Idle Days)" as written by and Zach Condon....
And I know when time
Will pass by slow
Without my heart
What can I do
You're in the halls
The bell gives way to a larger swell
Without my heart
What can I do, oh
Wroclai

And we grow fat
On the charms of our idle dreary days
Seen the shadows grow
See an ominous display
With no alarm
Could we say we'd have expected this way
(under stars?) have died
Give incent to play
Wroclai

    Amelie
    with the accordian

    General CommentHaha I've probably listened to this song more times than any other song in a long time.

    Here are the lyrics that I can make out:
    ---------------------------------------------
    And I know when time will pass by slow
    Without my heart what can I do...
    In the halls a bell gives way to a larger swell
    Without my heart what can I do...

    Mount Wroclai
    Mount Wroclai
    Mount Wroclai
    Mount Wroclai

    And we grow fat on the charms of our idle dreary days
    Seen the shadows grow, See an ominous display
    With no alarm, couldn't say we had expected this that way
    Under stars and death, pennance and decay.

    General Commentnpknhdfrvr, i totally agree about the accordian
    and i definitely hear winter in the first line.
    for me, it sounds like the meaning has something
    to do with having nothing else to give meaning to your life
    without your heart/love/emotion? any or all of the above.

    General CommentIt's definitely "Mount Wronclai" in the chorus.
    Such a beautiful, melancholic song!
