Possession is 9/10ths of the law.
I love the intro. Don't mind it at all. It's good to listen to while just chillin.
Favorite by Death Cab, great song.
sydbug98
this is a creepy song...
you're a creepy stalker?
Story of my life ;c
love deathcab for cutie and ben gibbards voice. his lyrics are the best. so deep and real and just straightforw a r d heart on the sleeve type s**t
Okay & yes & okay.... :)
Ahhh...you know me!! I'm your 'yes' girl when you're trying to find that answer.
I own all dcfc albums ;; amazing band.
I love the intro, great bass lines and build up- amazing song by them gives me the chills
Long Intro but one of my favorite Death Cab songs.
That's a long intro to the song

I like the music but loathe this lead singer's voice. Good lyrics, good music, voice of a douche.
Pandora put me on death cab for a cutie, to passion pit, to the xx i love psndora for keeping thr original version anf not the edited one.
i can see why theyd call him breathy. all i know is whatever pandora thinks usually agrees with my stations so im cool with it.
whateverhapp e n e d t o a w e s o m e
I LOVE the intro. It make the song the way it is! :p

HATE the intro
magicalky
beautiful the way it builds up in the beginning :)
Pandora describes Ben Gibbard as a breathy male lead vocalist on this track. I don't know where they're coming from; I'd say he's anything but breathy.

I don't like this version with the several-minu t e long intro.

This is the song that made me fall in love with this band.
Saw them at the Greek last month. They opened with this. It was awesome. If you ever get a chance to see them live, make sure you do.
Ok even though this song could relate to a stalker, I'd like to think it could relate to a person who is truely in love, and just very persistant. My wife of 12 years didn't fall in love with me until she got to know me better, although I pretty much fell in love the first time we met. Yeah I was persistant. (of course she didn't reject my advances, just naively didn't know my intent was to be more than friends. )
I love that the beginning sounds so sweet, but then as the song goes on it gets a little bit darker.
I really like it. It has a cool sound that reminds me of 'Low Spark for High Heeled Boys' from Traffic, but in a modern very cool way.
This song is sweeeet! The piano chords are elegant...Gl a d I found it. Would be nice as an instrumental , too, as I originally thought it would be.
polly570
this is a really good song i like the band!!!!!!!!
this is what happens when stoned people get instruments
I thought I remembered Ben saying something about this...

Gibbard wrote in an article in Pulse magazine: "The single on our record is a work of fiction that was inspired by things that happened to some people close to me. It's called 'I Will Possess Your Heart,' and it's eight-and-a- h a l f minutes long. It's five minutes of build and then a three-minute song. The song is basically about a stalker. It's about this nice guy who wants this girl he can't ha
Me too Angie! That's my fav lyric from the song :)

It's like a book eligantly bound, but in a language you can't read just yet.... Love those lines
There's a deeper meaning 2 this song.
Stalking and obsesstion. Priceless.
this song is absolutely amazing. it's my theme song at the present moment. does anybody want to comment on the meaning of the music video, per sey?
gay means happy if you really want to go into it -_-

This song lifts my soul with love.
This song has great layering in the intro, the build-up is intense, finishing off with hair-raising passion. I'd love to hear this live, dancing till there was no more sole attached to my shoes.
melgoro
i think the intro is great...if you really listen to the instruments especially the drum high-hats, they get stronger and louder like build up of emotions. Perfect.
This song is good though I think the intro could be cut off a bit. This is not a song for stalkers, songs are for anybody. What you mean by gay is stupid the term gay means homosexual it is not an opinon for music.This song is really good. It gives a relaxed but creepy feeling.
-:P

To Chux- yes, we do.. because this is the real version, and this version kicks a**.

This song is not a gay song, it is not a stalker song, and no negative adjectives should be used to describe it. This song is about a man that will get the woman he wants to fall in love with him. He's not a stalker, he's confident. It's a beautiful song with beautiful lyrics.
To come on this thread and trash this song...you should just say you know nothing about art.

This is not my opinion - it is fact.

Favorite song!!!!
