I am thrilled that I had a chance to see another aaaaaah-mazing show from MewithoutYou over the weekend as they stopped at the Granada with the fantastic and lovely Rocky Votolato, and a pretty decent band called Auctioneer. These guys are incredibly talented musicians and lyricists who put on a wonderful show. I was a bit upset that they didn't play my favorite song, but considering it's several years old and they have a wide collection of great songs, I didn't pout. But I had to listen to it after the show to console myself. And I decided to post it on here for those of you who may not be familiar with it.
I was admittedly not a huge fan of MewithoutYou until they released "Brother, Sister" in 2006. This album is phenomenal, and this track in particular gave me those good-song goosebumps for the first three hundred times I heard it because of the incredibly unique lyrics. Some of my favorites:
You're a door without a key, a field without a fence.
You made a holy fool of me, and I've thanked you ever since.
And if she comes circling back, we'll end where we'd begun
Like two pennies on the train track; the train crushed into one.
But if I'm a crown without a king, if I'm a broken, open seed,
If I come without a thing, then I come with all I need.
No boat out in the blue, no place to rest your head.
The trap I set for you seems to have caught my leg instead.
