"Dragonflies" as written by and Mark Edward Kozelek....
This is the first you spoke of it
In your black magic house in a cold damp attic
Two windows stare at us like eyes
Behind them December's dark early morning sky

And a couple of dead trees
With their ornamental stars

I thought by now that I figured your head out
Until now I thought I figured your body out
So please help me to understand
Because I love you more than anyone

I wonder in what fields today
You're chasing dragonflies at play
My little lost girl so far away

I wonder in what fields today
You're chasing dragonflies at play
My little lost girl so far away

This is the first you
This is the first you spoke of it
This is the first you
This is the first you spoke of it

    General CommentI feel most of this album deals with romantic nostalgia. I believe this song is about a lover sharing a simple, intimate childhood memory of chasing dragonflies. The present day is dark and cold, so Mark is feeling nostalgic through her warm anecdote. She didn't think it was that important to share, but to Mark, it means a lot in the moment..
