Let It Carry You
José González Lyrics


See day by day pass by
Each week another try
Rushing off the way you feel
Haste off the whats the deal

Won't you loose the amber
And dance the night away

See the migrant birds pass by
Taking off to warmer skies
Hear them singing out their songs
Tune in, realise nothing' swrong

And you come to lose the amber
And then the night away
Boots, and build up tension
Let it carry you away

And this song into the fall
All things near of things gone
To remind of all restless souls
Of the beauty of being here
And have it all
Let it carry your away...

And dance your night away

All things near of things gone
To remind of all restless souls
Of the beauty of being here

i agree there is more uneasiness in this album than any other JG release but i would assert that the same tension has always been there, just maybe more pronounced that he is getting older and these themes continue to prevail.

i think the lack of comfort with the song though is so true.... i think this is the whole point. "lose the amber" i.e. lose the hesitation, "lose and build up tension", throw away the old tension and focus your tension on something worth being tense about... something that will "carry you" throughout the rest of your life. almost an admittance that what you were doing before this isn't enough and to replace the old tension with a worthwhile tension. operating that there will always be tension somewhere in one's life, at least make it worthwhile.

that's the great challenge and tension of his music and why it feels like it has built up over time.

the overarching theme of JG's music is to search inside onself and then use that experience to make meaning in life, despite all the evil pervading. This song has the same theme and still represents a similar place, as he was 10 years ago in his older song themes, so it will feel more tense than earlier as it is the same topic.

ultimately this song tells me, despite the above, to just bask in the beauty of being here at all, even if it means those moments where you are feeling discomfort. bask in it because that is the entirety of life. without it you wouldnt be whole and things would be less beautiful.

Somethings changed. Jose's music has always made me feel calm and now I get anxious when listening to this album.

If you never felt the anxiety before you probably didn't understand.
