ON REPEAT: Lorelai

"Lorelai" is one of my favorite songs on Fleet Foxes second full-length album Helplessness Blues out May 3. It is absolutely beautiful. And once again I find myself wishing I could sing like Robin Pecknold. Robin holds his notes impressively. The echoe of his voice sticks to my ears like a magnet unwilling to let go. What magnets? Yes. The voice is attractive to my ears. For most of the day I have been listening to this song non-stop. This is probably the most uplifting song of the album in terms of sound. The lyrics... well, I'll have to look in to that. I'm still trying to figure them out.

"So guess I got old. I was like trash on the side-walk. I guess I knew why often it's hard to just sweet talk. I was old news to you then, old news, old news, to you ... then."
