    ------ About the song Transatlanticism performed by Death Cab For Cutie

This song made me cry for the first time in years because it reminds me of my friend who moved very far away. I eventually lost all contact with him and doubt I'll ever see him again. The whole song just radiates my feelings right now, I've listened to it on repeat for days. Thanks for the lyrics. <3 (❁T◡T❁)*✲゚*

such an amazing song | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song Your Heart Is An Empty Room performed by Death Cab For Cutie

This is a beautiful song that I love so much. To me it is about letting go of your past so you can leave and"burn" all the bad parts but along with the embers was everything you held dear. And you gave up everything and found a love that is true, but there is still an emptiness because all you see is everything else. So it's like you wish you could just go back to the beginning because the chase or whatever you did to get wear you are is all you know. So it's like some person who is stuck in a vicious circle of erasing everything and just running away because of their discontentment. The idea KINDA reminds me of the music video for the song only exception by paramore because she is so used to leaving and never coming back while in love. But in the end of that song a new love is the only exception to her habit. This song ends on a less lighter note but is probably more realistic in many more situations. :)

    ------ About the song Brothers On A Hotel Bed performed by Death Cab For Cutie

Any work of art should not be confined to one interpretation. What if homosexuals do identify with this song? That doesn't make your interpretation wrong. It is simply another interpretation. Besides, the lyrics are more ambiguous than most. It saddens me how so many people put so much of their energy into pushing one point of view on everyone else. It's futile. Art is subjective. That should be everyone's mantra.

My interpretation of the first stanza is that the boy can't control how he acts against his intentions, and he sees himself as a different person than who he believes he is. I identify with him.

As for my interpretation of the second stanza, I draw from my own experience of mutual romantic love between a girl and I, then falling out of love with her after I realized that we just weren't mature enough to deal with the expectations we created for ourselves. Over time, our relationship and communication atrophied.

I apologize if I come off as pretentious. If anyone's wondering, the reason why I use big words is because I'm a word nerd, and because I follow Intelligent Movement. KRS-One explained that it comes from the term Hip-Hop: Hip means to know and Hop means movement. Don't be afraid of being a nerd. The only reason to be afraid of knowledge is because of the responsibility that comes with it. Arrogance destroys the movement of knowledge.

Giants of passion and urgency | Reviewer: Hari
    ------ About the song We Looked Like Giants performed by Death Cab For Cutie

Actually, I think the "giants" metaphor goes in hand with the sex metaphor of discovering how their bodies work: I imagine them in white-hot passion, and nervousness, of their first sexual encounters, and so madly in-love, as they haphazardly press against the other maybe accidentally knocking quite a few objects through the ground--which is what makes him feel like a giant: both because their bodies become the center of the world for them at that moment and because in the combination of inexperience and passion they are like a hurricane, similar to how a giant walking through a town would cause great damages to it.

Beautiful beyond words, truly.

    ------ About the song What Sarah Said performed by Death Cab For Cutie

this is the first time I listen to this song in years, and definately the first time since breaking up with my girlfriend of six years. I wasn't there when her sister peacefully fell asleep for the last time, but fortunately her family were. I was however present afterwards, at the funeral and all of the times when we just missed her and talked about her. I haven't lost anyone so dear to me personally, but I tear up thinking about how horrible everything was for my then girlfriend when her sister died. I know I can't do anything about it, and we're not a couple anymore, but I still wish I could fix that part of history, just undoing jenny dying. Bloody brillian song, by the way.

Loveless Marriage | Reviewer: Emile Cartier-Hanz
    ------ About the song Cath performed by Death Cab For Cutie

This song seems to be about a girl who married a man who didn't really love her, who treated her poorly and was not the best man for her. He makes her uncomfofortable but she couldn't love anybody else, she was afraid to allow herself to love another. She didn't know what else to do so she stayed with this man, her husband.
I know of many marriages that start this way, usually due to passion or pregnancy and sometimes just stupidity. If only all out there could find their one true love, we'd all be perfect.

My #1 favorite song!! | Reviewer: BiB!
    ------ About the song I Will Follow You Into the Dark performed by Death Cab For Cutie

I still remember the first time I heard this song, it gave the most wonderful feeling I've ever had listening to a song it was like something coming out from very deep inside that made me close my eyes, smile and wanting to cry a bit all at the same time, also it made me think about the kind of love I always wanted and the one that for me the is real and purest, the love that is beyond everything even beyond the death. That's why I made it my favorite song.
A simple song but with a very deep meaning, simply beautiful.

unrequitted love | Reviewer: youdontcrytears
    ------ About the song Amputations performed by Death Cab For Cutie

I think so many people can relate to this song. Wanting someone so much that you will saccrafice and compromise you entire being to have their love. There's something grounding about this song. It doesn't romantasize dying for love. It does the opposite by telling how you're fine the way you are and hurting yourself for love is the opposite of whag love is all about.

Wedding drama. | Reviewer: Alexander
    ------ About the song Company Calls Epilogue performed by Death Cab For Cutie

I don't know if have to say, it's quite obvious that this song is about wedding. The guy is invited to it and all he wanted is to get drunk and not all this happen. All he wants is "to tell you're mine." He loved her so much, that he even couldn't "spit it out when the date's been set"... It's sad, and I know all this feelings quite well. 6 years have passed, but I still feel that pain. Same pain...
