SUMMER SKIN



SUMMER SKIN (Death Cab For Cutie)

Squeaky swings and tall grass
The longest shadows ever cast
The water's warm and children swim
And we frolicked about in our summer skin

I don't recall a single care
Just greenery and humid air
Then Labor day came and went
And we shed what was left of our summer skin

On the night you left I came over
And we peeled the freckles from our shoulders
Our brand new coats so flushed and pink
And I knew your heart I couldn't win
Cause the season's change was a conduit
And we'd left our love in our summer skin

I got my first taste of Death Cab like a week ago. Didn't really listen to it much since I was stuck in my sisters bathroom scrubbing rust stains off the bathtub and inhailing DOW products. But from what I heard it was pretty good stuff.

It's a beautiful song, one of my favorites off Plans, and the video just gives it a whole new meaning. "One more hour you'll never get back" - it just resonates. That can't be because I'm posting this from work now, can it? :)

My favorite of all the "Directions" videos, though, is "Brothers on a Hotel Bed" - no real concept, just a bunch of images that look the way the song has always sounded to me.
