Test a rope against the ceiling beams
I just want to live on in your dreams
Crush a vial into a pot of tea
I just want you to remember me

But I pour out the pot and I work out the knot
'Cause I know that it won't make you stay
And I'll be damned if I can't come up with some other way
Some other way, Some other way
Some other way to make you love me

Seal the doors and turn the pilot on
I just know you'll miss me when I'm gone
Drive a fist into a window pane
There are things a letter won't explain

But I pick out the glass and I shut off the gas
And I look to the oncoming day
And I'll be damned if I can't come up with some other way
Some other way
Some other way to make you love me

To make you love me

    General CommentSo I was a little skeptical of this album, it's so slick and reserved-sounding when I'm still dying for old goats-style lo-fi tape hiss and yelling but this song won me over. Contemplating suicide out of spite and bitter bruised love, then backing out of it for the same, this is John Darnielle doing what he knows best and I like it.
