    i really liked the girl. had a summer lovin' thing and then went to two different colleges. we were back home one weekend and she broke up with my in early october that year and i listened to this song a ton. i love it even though i associate it with getting dumped.

    this is by far the best shins song ever.

    ever.

    As someone sets light to the first fire of autumn
    We settle down to cut ourselves apart.
    Cough and twitch from the news on your face
    And some foreign candle burning in your eyes

    Held to the past too aware of the pending
    Chill as the dawn breaks and finds us up for sale.
    Enter the fog another low road descending
    Away from the cold lust, you house and summertime.

    Blind to the last cursed affair pistols and countless eyes
    A trail of white blood betrays the reckless route your craft is running
    Feed till the sun turns into wood dousing an ancient torch
    Loiter the whole day through and lose yourself in lines dissecting love.

    Your name on my cast and my notes on your stay
    Offer me little but doting on a crime.
    We've turned every stone and for all our inventions
    In matters of love loss, we've no recourse at all.

    Blind to the last cursed affair pistols and countless eyes
    A trail of white blood betrays the reckless route your craft is running
    Feed till the sun turns into wood dousing an ancient torch
    Loiter the whole day through and lose yourself in lines dissecting love.

    This is the type of song a man listens to while he cries over a woman.
