Music Monday: Into the Dark

| Inspiration, Music

Death Cab for Cutie is one of my favorite bands of all time, and one of my favorite songs by them is Into the Dark.

The simple strums on the guitar and the sweet lyrics, although kind of dark, make this song amazing.

It talks about true love, and going where ever you have to go to be with your love. Under any circumstance, I will be with you.

So simple, so lovely.

Love of mine
Someday you will die
But I’ll be close behind
I’ll follow you into the dark
No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
Just our hands clasped so tight
Waiting for the hint of the spark

If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no’s on their vacancy signs
If there’s no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I’ll follow you into the dark

In catholic school, as vicious as Roman rule
I got my knuckles bruised by a lady in black
And I held my tongue as she told me “Son fear is the heart of love”
So I never went back

If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no’s on their vacancy signs
If there’s no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I’ll follow you into the dark

You and me
Have seen everything to see
From Bangkok to Calgary
And the soles of your shoes
Are all worn down, the time for sleep is now
But it’s nothing to cry about ’cause we’ll hold each other soon
In the blackest of rooms

If heaven and hell decide that they both are satisfied
Illuminate the no’s on their vacancy signs
If there’s no one beside you when your soul embarks
Then I’ll follow you into the dark
And I’ll follow you into the dark.

 

Love it.

Did you know the lead singer of Death Cab is married to Zooey Deschanel? Sheโ€™s my favorite, which makes me like this band even more ๐Ÿ™‚

 

Have a wonderful Monday! I’m heading back home from NYC today, I’ll post pics soon ๐Ÿ™‚
