I just realized this song is based on the Asian white crane story. It's such a lovely song that explores a variety of emotions. I wish Pandora had put lyrics.
This song came on just now, and I was all like, AH YEAH! Colin Meloy is pretty much the best. At everything. Ever. Period.

Thank you Bobbie LeAnn Crawford! That is an awesome reference.. I totally understand now... I love this band :)
One of the best albums of the last 10 years. This is our generation's The Wall

I can't ever hear this song without crying. It's certainly not boring, or 'retarded'. This song is about love, but mostly greed, guilt and regret. It is timeless, eloquent, and lyrically genius.
(cont from previous Post) her weave them more and more. Oblivious to his wife's diminishing health, his greed increases. He eventually peeks in to see what she is doing to make the silk she weaves so desirable. He is shocked to discover that at the loom is a crane plucking feathers from her own body and weaving them into the loom. The crane, seeing him, flies away and never returns.
It's not a song about happiness... i t ' s a sad, sad, love story :( but a great song :)
The Crane Wife is an old Japanese folktale. While there are many variations of the tale, a common version is that a poor man finds an injured crane on his doorstep (or outside with an arrow in it), takes it in and nurses it back to health. After he releases the crane, a woman appears at his doorstep with whom he falls in love and marries. Because they need money, his wife offers to weave wondrous clothes out of silk that they can sell at the market, but only if he agrees never to watch her makin
This song is retarded, it makes no sense and is like 20 minutes long or something!
This song believes in love and persuades the listener do the same.
This song is about a story about a Crane Wife. It's the biggest song from their album of the same name.
