Love, love, love this song! The intro is awesome- cool bass, drums, guitar, nice buildup. @Chase- yes, his lyrics are very deep, really makes you stop and think; especially this song.

Pandora describes Ben Gibbard as a breathy male lead vocalist on this track. I don't know where they're coming from; I'd say he's anything but breathy.

This is the song that made me fall in love with this band.

Saw them at the Greek last month. They opened with this. It was awesome. If you ever get a chance to see them live, make sure you do.

Ok even though this song could relate to a stalker, I'd like to think it could relate to a person who is truely in love, and just very persistant. My wife of 12 years didn't fall in love with me until she got to know me better, although I pretty much fell in love the first time we met. Yeah I was persistant. (of course she didn't reject my advances, just naively didn't know my intent was to be more than friends. )

I love that the beginning sounds so sweet, but then as the song goes on it gets a little bit darker.
Report as inappropriate
I really like it. It has a cool sound that reminds me of 'Low Spark for High Heeled Boys' from Traffic, but in a modern very cool way.

This song is sweeeet! The piano chords are elegant...Gl a d I found it. Would be nice as an instrumental , too, as I originally thought it would be.

Gibbard wrote in an article in Pulse magazine: "The single on our record is a work of fiction that was inspired by things that happened to some people close to me. It's called 'I Will Possess Your Heart,' and it's eight-and-a- h a l f minutes long. It's five minutes of build and then a three-minute song. The song is basically about a stalker. It's about this nice guy who wants this girl he can't ha

This song has great layering in the intro, the build-up is intense, finishing off with hair-raising passion. I'd love to hear this live, dancing till there was no more sole attached to my shoes.

i think the intro is great...if you really listen to the instruments especially the drum high-hats, they get stronger and louder like build up of emotions. Perfect.
Report as inappropriate
This song is good though I think the intro could be cut off a bit. This is not a song for stalkers, songs are for anybody. What you mean by gay is stupid the term gay means homosexual it is not an opinon for music.This song is really good. It gives a relaxed but creepy feeling.
