I can hear the birds singing to me, outside.
Talk to cats for a while.
Try so hard to turn a life, inside out.
Everyone knows when to smile.

But I don't see too much these days.
'Cause I don't want to.
"Let me go" she said.
And I'll find it.

    Oh!!!!!!!! This is such a cute song!!!! I love it so much!!! I can really relate to the part "Everyone knows when to smile. But I don't see too much these days." because I always feel like everyone is happier than I am... because I'm not really. I also love the part " I can hear the birds singing to me, outside. Talk to cats for a while." That is stuff I do really often. lol. That song is just right for me!!!! I love it so much!!!!!!

    One of the better songs i've ever heard. It's subtlety is what makes is so unbelievably good.

    It's about lonliness.

    It reminds me of missing someone really bad, late at night, in springtime.

    Reminds me of Slint. And yes, it is about loneliness.
