Walked into find you sitting in your kitchen, softly singing,
“Someone carry me away.”

If there’s always someone leaving.
Will we ever stop believing that the winter fits us perfectly?
Isn’t someone always coming?
Once the summers up and running
Won’t you feel warm with me?

But we’re so tired of when we don’t make mistakes
But things get torn away.
And we’re so scared of losing faith
That we can’t put things back together when they break.

Walked into find you staring out the window at a city
Holding memories of older times and how’d she’d gone away.
And we sang through smoke and rum and coke and
Promised with our pity, man, one day, I swear we’ll be ok.

Walked into find you sitting in your kitchen, softly singing,
“Someone carry me away.”

    General CommentSeriously can't listen to this song anymore properly after my girlfriend broke up with me. Both sad and uplifting. Thank's La Dispute.

    Song MeaningThis song speaks the most to me right now… I just want to share my view on it, if anyone can relate awesome, if not, well idk. Its easy to relate to this song because everyone has been left by someone; maybe some more that others, but someone has left us all. I think the main meaning he’s trying to get across is just the lack of commitment of humans. How everyones gone by the winter (when we need them most) and everyone comes around for summer flings, when there is little stress, nothing feels absolute, the days feel endless, life is good. But things get boring when everything’s going good, which could refer to a lot of problems (maybe cheating or finding someone else when routeine gets boring) and it all kinda crumbles, everyones so afraid of getting hurt, but not afraid of doing the damage, no one wants to fix themselves, or blame themselves. And in the last verse he’s making the point more clear by giving an example of someone who was hurt by that, and drowned himself in alcohol and cigarettes to dull the pain, (keeping maybe a little anger and pride, or maybe the opposite maybe he’s depressed and just awfully sad) telling himself that one day hes going to be okay. And the last line is the first line… someone carry me away.
