I used to think that Johnny Cash was able to describe every situation that my life had ended up at. Nerp, The National filled in a few gaps. Smiley face and then some sad faces which are tearful happy faces.

I feel like the best way to divide it is: 2/8 + 2/8 + 2/8 + 3/8 = 9/8 first bar then simply 4/4 or 8/8. The chorus actually has a 9/8 bar every fourth measure: it's 4/4 - 4/4 - 4/4 - 9/8
Jack Watters (6 months ago)
17/8, First count 9, then count 8. Then is goes to 4/4.
Teddy Westside (1 year ago)
It's in 9/8

That odd bar with the extra beat in the verse works so well.

The National really are incredible. Late night, after a few drinks, I can easily fall into a trance with them on in the headphones. Keep the art coming.

Not the same without Devendorf's frenetic drumming. Even tho it is pretty subdued in this song anyway.

such a great drummer, so interesting with the vocals

One of the few songs that Noel Gallagher would've wanted to write.

Well, so do many other songs. The original "song" is Canon in D by Pachebel and other songs with similar progression are e.g. "Pet Shop Boys - Go West", "The Eagles - Hotel California" and "Green Day - Basket Case" =)
Teddy Westside (1 year ago)
Woah, you're right. It has the same chord progression, or at least a similar sounding one, as Dont Look Back in Anger

I don't know who the beardy trumpet guy is but they should keep him as a chorist... He sounds a thousand times better than the Dessner guys !

great song and album !

I didn't like this song at all the first few times I listened to the album. However, now it's one of my favorites on the album. I read that Scott Devendorf sees this song as a meditative entrace to the album. The chord change when they shift to the "I should live in salt for leaving you" line is beyond brilliant.
