My little girl | Reviewer: Keri Lynn Rosen | 10/26/12
My little girl, 2.5 years old, she "loves" most of our music but this track she genuinely loves. She loves the little boy reading, she falls asleep to him. She doesn't realize that it is a conversation that she may one day have herself and how much it will mean to her. The fact that it's a sample from a horror flick that I have seen more than once has not been lost on me.

I actually think the "audio" of the story reading is very effective with the emotion of the story. Sure, at the beginning when the kid is corrected it just sounds like he messed up; but during the "I like you" and "I like you too", how he struggles to say it and repeats it, I think it makes the effect of that part much stronger.

I love this song. The first time I heard it, it made me cry and whenever I listen to it, I cry again. The whole "I like you, I like you too" in the story adds feeling to the song. It is a sad song but I think everyone can relate to it.

This song makes me cry every time I listen to it. Which, considering most of Bright Eyes's work, isn't that unusual. But this song ALWAYS gets me...something about the story at the beginning with the little kid reading and whoever's in the background correcting him. The emotion in the song feels very pure and "nostalgic" to me, so it makes sense for a little kid to read in it. The "I like you" "I like you too...now I must pack" part especially tugs at my heart. I recommend this song to anyone who likes their songs with genuine emotion and doesn't mind their music on the sad side of things.

i love what the little boy is reading, it adds a great touch to the song (the story not really the audio of it)
