about

'Everything that Trouble meant to me once' is a reference to The National's album, Trouble Will Find Me

lyrics

When it was over, I took all the things that we loved
And hid them away in a box marked Do Not Touch
Left them there, forever to gather dust
Then you called
And I went through it all

And I hadn't been able to listen to The National for months
Because of everything that Trouble meant to me once
But now the tears come and I'm breaking down
Somwhere on a backstreet in Kentish Town
And it's raining, well of course it is
I look up
And think, come on man
This is punishment enough

Oh darling I know I said hearts always get better
That these things land right side up if you'd only let them
But now I'm not so sure
Lost my confidence in it all
Will we ever get there?
I miss you, and I'm alone, and I'm scared

Can we pick up our pens and get to writing again
Because that last chapter, it came to an untimely end
With two dimensional protagonists
Darling you know we're better than this
So let's prove it now, let's show
That we're not going to falter
With redemption so close

So is this it, are you coming home?
Is it me that you want?
You're no good on your own
I know that you know that
And they know it too
Have faith in the people who look out for you
But if you agree
If it's me
And not just some person you wish I could be
Well come and get me then
I'm waiting

Darling I know I said hearts always get better
Well mine is starting to heal
And I'm inclined to let it
but I need you to be sure
More confident than before
Then I think we'll get there
But for now -
I miss you, and I'm alone, and I'm scared
