    Sad, but not quite as sad as Narrow Your Eyes.

    Oh wow, "best and saddest" is right, just some of the best stream-of-consciousness lyrics ever in the breakdown: "Don't call me at work again ah no the boss still hates me I'm just tired and I don't love you any more and there's a restaurant we should check out where the other nightmare people like to go I mean nice people baby wait I didn't mean to say nightmare".

    I never realized how much I loved this song until the day it broke into the top 25 most played list on my ITunes.

    A lot of people contend the Holy Trinity of TMBG songs is Birdhouse, Ana, and Don't Let's Start. I contend that this song is on par with/exceeds all three of those. I would always put it over Don't Let's Start.

    Great lyrics. So easy to underestimate TMBG as just "wacky", but this song alone shows there's always so much more going on.
