"Light reading" as written by Finn Bjarnson, Finn Bjarnson, John Hancock, John Hancock, Ryan Raddon, Ryan Raddon, Becky Jean Williams and Becky Jean Williams....
Some light reading, the last pages, clearer now in certain places.
But you're hovering, half empty, and I'm leaving, but you've left me.

Please just listen to reason, these aren't chapters, they're seasons.
I heard from a friend of a friend of a friend of a friend
You've closed the book on your end.

If you pick up, pull out, does it have to be now?
If you pick up, pull out, does it have to be now?

I tear out those last few pages, less time; more places.
I've read all the way to the bitter end to the end.
You outlast your friends.

If you pick up, pull out, does it have to be now?
If you pick up, pull out, does it have to be now?
If you pick up, pull out, does it have to be now?
If you pick up, pull out, does it have to be now?

If you pick up, pull out, does it have to be now?
If you pick up, pull out, does it have to be now?

    General Commentthese lyrics don't make any sense. No offense to maglo87, when i'm listening to it, it all just sounds incomprehensible to me, most of it. I love the use of accordian in this song. Has a french feel to it. Late night alumni is my drifty chillout music. I look for the feel rather than the actual meaning of the lyrics. What i get from this song is a kinda sad contemplative mood, same with most LNA songs. Lounge music is a whole new different level of self destructive music. Lol

    General Commenti think "I'm leaving" is actually "not leaving"

    My InterpretationSome relationships (or friendships) seem to last forever and even though you may be separated from someone for a period of time, when they come back into your life the feeling is just the same as before they left. Just like how seasons come and go, as opposed to how chapters in a book (and some relationships) that have a definitive start and end.

    The person the writer is talking to wants to cut ties and close the book on the relationship. They reluctantly agree to leave as well, even though they feel that ultimately their friendship could be the one that outlasts all others. So there are questions like "Why now?" or "What's changed?"

    Without this closure they feel bitter how near the end the subject just floated around half-heartedly without telling them the whole story.
