"Carin at the Liquor Store" as written by and Matt Berninger Aaron Dessner....
I was a worm, I was a creature
I get on the ground the second I'd see you
You cannot command your love
I wasn't a catch, I wasn't a keeper
I was walking around like I was the one who found dead John Cheever
Hand and glove

So blame it on me
I really don't care
It's a foregone conclusion

I see you in stations and on invitations
You'd fall into rivers with friends on the weekends
Innocent skies above
Carin at the liquor store, I can't wait to see you
I'm walking around like I was the one who found dead John Cheever
In the house of love

So blame it on me
I really don't care
It's a foregone conclusion
It wasn't so bad, I wasn't that sick
Got taken by love, I wasn't that quick
Foregone conclusion
It's gonna be different after tonight
You're gonna see me in a different light
It's a foregone conclusion

So blame it on me
I really don't care
It's a foregone conclusion
I'm already seeing stars in the air
It's a foregone conclusion

    General CommentA really sweet and sad song. I think it is about reflecting on a love that you screwed up. He feels an immense amount of guilt and regret about the way that things played out, and tells his ex to "blame it all on me." Though the song is fairly bleak overall, it seems like there is a glimmer of hope at the end that perhaps this former love will forgive him for past transgressions and "see him in a different light."
