I love this song! Another gem from Picaresque. It perfectly segues into On the Bus Mall

Love The Decemberists . Love this song. I was immediately captured by the line "There are power lines in our bloodlines." The "I am a writer" verses sealed the deal

I absolutely love this song! It was the very first Decemberists song I ever heard, beginning a long, love-filled relationship . :)

one of the best songs in my opinion. Nostalgic, romantic, and in ways picaresque. Decemberists are the best.
