Riff: Poliça – “Matty”

Oct 22, 2013

I was lost and so were you/How did I never touch your heart/Never noticed the space between us/I don’t want to do that to anyone again/I’m gonna let my love ring strong till the day I’m dead, you’re dead

from Matty lyrics by Poliça

In exploring the realm of hollow relationships, Poliça is putting an honest narrative to the cold hard world of detachment. It’s a rift that starts off innocuously enough, but has the potential to do some serious relationship damage. In the end Channy is not even sure how or why it all happened.
