All the other girls here are stars?you are the Northern Lights
They try to shine in through your curtains you're too close and too bright
They try and they try but everything that they do
Is the ghost of a trace of a pale imitation of you

    Not a big fan of this spare, downbeat version - give me the power and the emotion of the original any day.

    "Wurlitzer". "Treliss". Mr. Ritter achieves transcendence through vocabulary.

    Ugh. <3 Killer line: "Every heart is a package tangled up in knots someone else tied."

    listening to this song makes me not hate my parents so much for choosing kathleen as my middle name.

    This song on Live at Vicar Street is a religious experience.

    I love the song "Kathleen". It's a cute throwback to one's teenage years--all sweet and hormones and excitement--and it makes me cry too. Well done.

    Every heart is a package tangled up in knots someone else tied. This one line made me go and get the album. I figured if someone can write something like that, his albums gotta be decent atleast.
