This piano-stomper is a single release by American indie rock band Spoon from their 2010 album, Transference. Like many of the songs on the record, lyrically the theme is heartbreak. On this number vocalist Britt Daniel croons, "I wanna show you how I love you/ but there's nothing there."
The album cover features the work of a photographer named William Eggleston titled "Sumner, Mississippi, c. 1970."
Daniel told The Guardian that this song is an elegy for a relationship that he could see was going to fail, so he penned its epitaph first.
Joe from Washington DcThis song is never discussed as one of Spoon's best but I love some of the lines in this song. "There's only one of us you truly felt" is not only a clever line but spat out out by Britt Daniel brilliantly.
