"My Dearest Friend" as written by and Devendra Banhart....
I'm gonna die of loneliness, I know
I'm gonna die of loneliness, for sure

I'm gonna die of loneliness, I know

My dearest friend, you'll soon begin to love again, to love again.

    General CommentThis song makes me feel at peace. It makes me think of when my best friend/boyfriend died nine months ago. the opening stanza is me saying "i'm gonna die of loneliness" because i miss him so much. the second stanza is him saying "you'll be able to move on and love again as we did."

    it's a song about hope. simple as that.

    General CommentBeautiful song. I think Devendra is saying he's going to die alone while the person he's still in love with will move on and soon find another. I think the woman is saying to him that he will also move forward but he hasn't realized it yet.
