Sweet
I was on ITunes the other day trying to figure out which was better: The styrofoam remix or the original.
...
...
I bought both. :D
...And then there were a ton of random violins. Yes good.
tell me am i wrong to think that there could be nothing better than making you my bride and slowly growing old together
I love the postal Service :D
I love this song it's nice
Did I, Dream...you ???? With hopes, of Love...that outline your Body--with the softness; of My graciously amazing... response :-)
Why does my phone get better music?

Cute song. I think the goalie reference was a testament of how he did not want her to leave and how he would do what it takes to make it work but she wasn't having it. His vision on marriage is not sitting well with her either nor is she willing to forgive him. She continues to show no remorse as it is much easier for her to go to her better company and simply says to him your heart wont heal right if you keep tearing out the sutures patronizing the fact that she just broke his heart!
I love this song, but why does he say third quarter of a hockey game when it is clearly third PERIOD. come on!
This one blows me away with its searing honesty and sincerity. Superb.
It's a really good song, and I love the girls voice, it's really pretty and unique.
Awesome.
I swear dis reminds me of adventure time
I can't stand the whole I'm leaving yu part
Of Monsters and Men+Death Cab for Cutie= Nothing Better... I really wish the ending of this song was different, still very meaningful
I think lacrosse would be the only game I can think of where a goalie would tend the net in the 3rd quarter.
Still need one
A need repair
This song is really good:)
This song, it is amazing. Just simply amazing.
DEAR BEN,
WE NEED ANOTHER ALBUM. NAOWWWW!
PLEEEEEAAAAA A S E ? ? ?
man id tell that hoe Iam out love it or leave it!
Ugh I can't pick a favorite song on this album. There all so good!
and the lyrics are the bomb. and your heart wont heal right if you keep tearing out the sutures.
so cool. very realistic too.
Love the lyrics.
its preaty good. Not one of my favorites, but i like it.
Epic.

But yeah, it's periods in hockey, not quarters, but the line wouldn't have flowed as well, so I can deal with it.

i love this song :)
Three periods. Not three quarters (3/4)
Spectacular song.
As to the goalie reference, I'm pretty sure Ben is talking about hockey, which is played during three quarters.

Goalies tending the net? Soccer is played in halves not quarters.
To the Ben Gibbard haters - there is a reason he is an indie rock icon and you are all just some nameless people online.

who's the female singer?
Probably the only song of the Postal Service I was able to tolerate...t h e y should ditch the death cab for cutie voice guy and stick with this female singer from here on out...
balm for loosing lovers
...sadly, similiar to how my marriage ended. I've got to stop tearing out the sutures. Good song.
Such a wonderful song; I wish it didn't end so tragically
sad and yet i wanna dance

your heart won't heal right if you keep tearing out the sutures.
To mad v 07: Did it help you spell as well? Let's hope.
God, if you're a glutton for punishment over a break-up this is the song for you...it represents the perfect words that we wish we could all use during a fight/break- u p . . . y e a h it's depressing, but it's such a great song...There isn't a way to define this awesome song except that it'll choke you up more often than not! I agree with jaykarischum a n that it's the best Postal Service song.

I absolutly love this song, it's so real, and I am filled with emotion each time I hear it. I would have to definately agree that this is the best Postal Service song!
God why is this so much like the relationship I was just in?
