Songfacts®:

  • Frontman Ben Gibbard told VH1 News about this song: "As I'm sure other people feel as we get older, our windows of possibilities start slowly closing. In that song, it's represented by the clouds coming in and there's no more sunlight. As a child you look up, and you could lay on your back [and look] at the sky and anything was possible, and the older you get the less that is true."
