I Will Possess Your Heart
03/18/08 at 09:21 AM by Julia Conny
I am ultra stuffy, and my throat is scratchy. I feel the sickness seeping into my daily routine. I'm OK with this though. It's been awhile since I've come down with anything significant, most likely because I spent the last few months taking Emergen-C a couple times a day. I'm no superperson, anymore.

Right this second, I am sitting in my Starbucks, whittling away my words on this keyboard and drinking iced coffee. This may be one of my most comfortable positions. This may be the name of my game. But I imagine this comfortable feeling comes from the new Death Cab single, "I Will Possess Your Heart," that I bought from Amazon just a few hot seconds ago. I've already listened three times. This song is ... I don't even know the words just yet. Death Cab has always personified specific emotions and sentiments via the tones and structures of their music, but because they do it so differently and more special than any other band, I've always found it really hard to describe their music. Other than incredible.

Hmmm, interesting realization. As a reviewer, as someone who looks to write about music - breaking it down, criticizing it, applauding it, and over-analyzing its little do and dads - Death Cab is the ONLY band that breaks down my walls of formal response. I don't know what to think about this. Would this then mean that Death Cab is my favorite band of all time, because no words of mine can cast their script? I've always considered Death Cab ONE of my favorite bands, but I've never cast them as number one. Maybe I need to reorder my lists. Maybe it's this lack of words that should reserve a top position. Maybe I don't really decide my favorites, and my favorite is really Death Cab; it has decided me, and I never took the time to think it through. It's plausible, certainly. I've never grown tired of ANY DCFC albums. I like some songs more than others on their older releases, but on Transatlanticism, my favorite album of theirs, every song operates in the same speechless way.

Mind you, I say all of this in the wake of hearing their new single. But, why should I deny the moment?

How I wish you could see the potential, the potential of you and me
It's like a book elegantly bound, but it'll anguish that you can't read
You gotta spend some time - love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find - love, I will possess your heart

There are days when outside your window, I see my reflection as I slowly pass
And I long for this mirrored perspective, when we'll be lovers, lovers at last
You gotta spend some time - love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find - love, I will possess your heart

I will possess your heart

You reject my advances and desperate plea
I won't let you, let me down so easily, so easily

You gotta spend some time - love, you gotta spend some time with me
And I know that you'll find - love, I will possess your heart

I will possess your heart


I have a lot to update about, more specifically the hilarity at this weekend's punk/hardcore/metal shows. Right now I am going to step away from Death Cab and finish my Lydia review.

Sigh. The sky is cloudy. That's all right with me.
