As a young girl, without the knowledge of what a love could be, I think only of my grandfather. I knew so little of him, and so little of his life. And I loved him. And I watched him die.

Say what you will about Ben. No one can argue that he is a masterful lyricist and a genius when it comes to composition. Funny thing is they are awesome live. Hard to believe with all the electronic instrumentat i o n they use. Well done mr. Gibbard you've done it again a real gem here.

I think it's true, that love is watching someone die. And not just the moment of dead, but the process. I've heard people say that they loved a person so much that they couldn't see them like this. I think they didn't love the person enough.

One day my awesome teacher decided to share amazing and good music with us. She played new year by death cab for cutie. I was like woooo!!!!! Yeah!! I soon then realized that I was the only one dancing and mouthing the words. People still listen to pop crap and stuff.

Listened to this song quite a bit as my Mom was in her last stages of ALS, a fatal neuroligical disease with no cure. My mom was at home receiving hospice care. I'd leave and listen to this. I can vouch that love is watching someone die.
