It's so easy to say you don't care
It's so easy to say you don't need it
When you've got it all and you know
Now every day you feel a bit less
And when you get dressed remind yourself this
And there's just yourself you can do
Yeah there's just so much you can do
And I say let the distance bring us together again
Take a picture
Let the light in on the exposure
In the dark who knows what we'll find
And if it's not yours I can't say if it's mine
Just make it soft
Set it right now
Take some blame
When you're right
Don't you forget what you are
You are the one who brings the best of us all
Nothing else but
Nothing else but let the distance bring us together again
Out on your own you make your own
Satisfy your own self
You don't have to think
You don't watch your back
You stink
You lack
You got the right

    General CommentBritt Daniel(-s) :P

    But, good gods, this song is beautiful. There was always a certain level of machismo in his voice in Spoon songs, even in those equally stunning lamentation tunes, but it seems to be lost here, almost as if he's on the verge of tears.

    When Post-Parlo said that Britt Daniel (and Bright Eyes' Conor Oberst, who co-wrote this) is one of our greatest songwriters now, it almost reeks of understatement.

    General CommentThe whole song is probably about a girl he loves that he was once in a relationship with. He doesnt say anything about a breakup but the title of the song suggests that maybe she had to leave permanently for whatever reason and it's eating away at both of them- "Now everyday you feel a bit less." I think the part about the picture has to do with reminding her of that one point in time that a picture captures and how wonderful things used to be when they were together.
