On the five-song EP that gained the band wider recognition, "A Perfect Sonnet" is an example of intense, emotional, highly poetic songwriting. The song begins with only acoustic guitar and Conor Oberst's distinctive voice, and then drums and more instrumentation are added, rounding out the second half of the song. It was one of the most notable songs of this early stage in Bright Eyes' career, addressing mental health problems and the struggle to maintain an optimistic attitude toward healing.
The song was released on Every Day and Every Night as well as on the Crank Records 2001 compilation One: It's All Good, Man.
Rachael from New Orleans, LaThis song. This song writer. Just...Frick...perfection. It makes me want to wail and sob the lyrics along with Connor.
But as for me I'm coming to my final failure I've killed myself with changes trying to make things better But I ended up becoming something other than what I had planned to be
Alessandra from St.louis, Moi really love Bright Eyes & Conor is a god. lol. but yes. i think this song is deeper than being explained, but oh well. that is my opinion.... or maybe i just like to use more, and more descriptive words.
