Riff: The xx – “Fiction

Aug 3, 2012

You’re more than I can believe/You’ll never go my way.

from Fiction lyrics by The xx

In “Fiction,” Sim feeds upon a fantasy that is far from the harsh reality of his ill-fated relationship. But it seems that opting for a façade is this man’s only option, namely when nobody can, and ever will live up to his wildest of dreams, anyhow.
