"Bandages" as written by and Timothy John Baker....
It will come around
But everything is now
I know everything is right now
The loneliness is a lot
But the nothing weighs a ton
I mean the nothing weighs a fucking ton

That half of the bed
Empty like a page
Of the curses claims you've yet to make
Oh, the promising light
Bending like a spine
Or the whiteness that your pen could write

Get these bandages off
You cant stand, you can walk
Leave these towels apart
You get up, you get out
Into the sun

That's where we belong
Been a bit too long
All our weaknesses are growing strong
And winter always ends
With water on your limbs, the April rain comes swinging in

Take these bandages off
Let me stand, let me walk
Leave these towels apart
Let me up, let me out,
Into the sun

Oh, come she will
Come she will
Come, she will
Come she will
She will

She comes, oh,
She comes, son,
She cooooomes

She comes, oh,
She comes, son,
She cooooomes

She comes, oh,
She comes, son,
She cooooomes

She comes, oh,
She comes, son,
She cooooomes

She comes, oh,
She comes, son,
She cooooomes

She comes, oh,
She comes, son,
She cooooomes

She comes, oh,
She comes, son
She cooooomes

    My InterpretationTo me this song and a couple of other HR songs (The Simplest Thing is the first that comes to mind) sound like they're about someone dealing with depression and anxiety. Perhaps it's because I've been there but the lyrics about taking the bandages off "the nothing weighs a ton" and stepping out in the sun made me think of that, and that it's the narrator trying to encourage someone to be happy again. Whatever the interpretation this is such a gorgeous song.

    Song MeaningThis song is about experiencing loneliness and depression. Tim Baker (the lead singer and songwriter for Hey Rosetta!) said that he wrote it after a long, cold, lonely winter, and the song served as a personal letter to himself. He's telling himself that he's stronger than "the nothing" and that he can get past the feelings that have been holding him back.

    The lyrics at the end "she comes" are him telling himself that eventually, someone will come along for him to love.

    The song is haunting and beautiful, and we need more HR fans.
