I heard this song while binge-watching Gossip Girl this past semester. It was in the episode when Dan and Serena realize that things are just not working out between them (for the first time, lol). And I don't know why, but the song hit me so hard I started sobbing. Context: slow songs have made me bawl (whether they are sad or not) since I was toddler. Despite this visceral reaction, I have long had a love affair with music that others might label depressing. I like the emotional rawness that it leaves me with. This Death Cab For Cutie track is no exception.
*Sigh*, all the feels.
