The Sound of Settling
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


I've got a hunger twisting my stomach into knots; that my tongue is tied off
My brain's repeating if you've got an impulse, let it out!
But they never make it past my mouth

This is the sound of settling
This is the sound of settling

Our youth is fleeting, old age is just around the bend and I can't wait to go gray
And I'll sit and wonder of every love that could have been
If I'd only thought of something charming to say

This is the sound of settling
This is the sound of settling

I've got a hunger twisting my stomach into knots

My brain's repeating if you've got an impulse, let it out!
But they never make it past my mouth

This is the sound of settling
This is the sound of settling

Our youth is fleeting, old age is just around the bend and I can't wait to go gray
And I'll sit and wonder of every love that could have been
If I'd only thought of something charming to say

This is the sound of settling
This is the sound of settling
I've got a hunger twisting my stomach into knots

...or a New Pornographers video (Letter from an Occupant). Still, this is great stuff. I love this band.

along with "tiny vessels," this song does a bang up job of capturing the queasy self disgust that comes not just from knowing that you're lying to another about how you feel, but to yourself about what you want and don't want. i suppose that's a common enough thing--especially when you're young and haven't fucked up enough to know better--but gibbard's ability to render the familiar ickiness of emotional self-betrayal is both awesome and disturbing.

That’s why “I’ll sit and wonder of every love that could’ve been if I only thought of something charming to say” resonate with me so much
