Your Ex-Lover is Dead :: Stars

I was introduced to the band Stars earlier this semester, and I thought I'd continue the relationship theme that we've got going so far this week. This song is the first Stars song I had ever heard, and basically what happens is that these two people who were together a long time ago get introduced to each other through friends of friends and end up sharing a cab. The song as a whole is beautiful, but the last verse has some really beautiful lyrics. If you like the song, I suggest listening to Stars latest album, In Our Bedroom After the War. I'll probably be blogging about songs from that album sometime in the near-ish future either way.

I'm posting the music video for it, so enjoy!

"Your Ex-Lover Is Dead"

God that was strange to see you again
Introduced by a friend of a friend
Smiled and said 'yes I think we've met before'
In that instant it started to pour,
Captured a taxi despite all the rain
We drove in silence across Pont Champlain
And all of the time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name...

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
Tried to reach deep but you couldn't get in
Now you're outside me
You see all the beauty
Repent all your sin

It's nothing but time and a face that you lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn't choose
I'll write you a postcard
I'll send you the news
From a house down the road from real love...

Live through this, and you won't look back...
Live through this, and you won't look back...
Live through this, and you won't look back...

There's one thing I want to say, so I'll be brave
You were what I wanted
I gave what I gave
I'm not sorry I met you
I'm not sorry it's over
I'm not sorry there's nothing to save
I'm not sorry there's nothing to save...

wow dyl-pickle.

this song rocks. i am a fan now. i'm thinkin we should make a cd of all the songs we post :) and then we could maybe sell them on itunes as mixes...i'm not sure if we'd get any money from itunes if we did it that way, but i think it'd be neat to make a mix of our songs!!!!

love this....
