Artist: Band of Horses
Album: Infinite Arms
I used to see the night so anxious, but now I know*
The only thing it ever taught me was a grand illusion that comes and goes
The city blanketed in snow
What if we die, no end and no conclusion?
How could you smile, just walk away?
Well, I don't know
I don't know
I met you at the railroad station, now years ago
And something happened on the night I last drank with you in the neon glow
Now I don't see you anymore
The Midwestern sky is gray and cold
The sun never shines but that's alright
And I couldn't find the letters that you wrote me
What did you write, where'd you go? Well, I don't know
Take a little time, gonna roll the dice
Taken for a ride, any normal life will do too
Find another way, try to break the ice
Every day and night the banana peels were true, true
Writer(s): Benjamin Bridwell, Tyler Ramsey, William Reynolds, Ryan Monroe

It seems to me that a majority of the songs on this album are about a lost love. This song has such depth on a simplistic level. well written. It has similarities to factory which seems to talk about a man who no longer has a home to go to because ruined his relationship with his love . The whole album is great. Its like reading a good novel. each song segues into the next telling the story of a self loathing man who has regrets and resentments.
