Anda my love, wake up to your window, the day calls in billows
Its echoing moonlight onto the blue nightmare of your heart
In cozy red rainbow, its shaking off halos
And the memory of our sacred so and so

    The Piano line is similar to Perfume Genius's Learning, still one of their best.

    This is one of those bands that definitely got better with time. Not all "underground" stuff is good. TVOTR is like fine wine.

    This song is painfully fucking beautiful and it sounds like the soundtrack to a Wes Anderson movie that hasn't been made yet.

    @Turner_Ound -- I've always interpreted the song to be about a relationship that is considered to be wrong or inappropriate by the partner's family -- "in the shadow of your family tree" and "pumping blood to the roots of evil to keep it young" seem particularly evocative of this idea. Could be for religious, racial, any number of reasons. An interview given by Tunde to A/V Club said something similar.

    :-) you guys crack me up. But seriously, you know something they don't- what is it talking about?

    @hotterthanjuly -- maybe the people who want to use it as a wedding song don't like their families all that much. ;)
