I have kept your diary on tape
I have covered every angle of your face
From ear to ear and then you would smile
And disappear for a while

Take me when you go out again
I want to buy some stuff from your friend
It's good to know we both still care
And that we have this to share

    General CommentThough it's super blissful, it's almost heartbreaking in how desperate he sounds. It's almost like he's living as though someone he once knew is still a part of his life, and he's using videotapes and pictures to help recreate her presence.

    General CommentThis is my favorite song from The Radio Dept. Maybe because it sounds so much like New Order's Ceremony. To me it's about reminiscing the great times you had with someone who's no longer in your life. I've had some passing friends whom i can no longer talk to properly because of certain...events. This song makes me feel like everything that we had is not completely lost, but it's living still through my memory.
