Say what you will about Ben. No one can argue that he is a masterful lyricist and a genius when it comes to composition. Funny thing is they are awesome live. Hard to believe with all the electronic instrumentat i o n they use. Well done mr. Gibbard you've done it again a real gem here.
I think it's true, that love is watching someone die. And not just the moment of dead, but the process. I've heard people say that they loved a person so much that they couldn't see them like this. I think they didn't love the person enough.
Deepest recesses of the mind, where beauty and choas lays, harmoniously lay.
Not the only one that heard tfios yes! Rereading now actually :'(
Every time I hear this, I cry, and yet, I never can skip it.
@rebekah.mye r s The Fault in Our Stars is a book :)
Death is not a flaw...it's part of this life. And it's not the star's fault; it's yours and mine. I believe
Yes, this reminds of the fault in our stars too. It's so sad :(
Who's gunna be at your funeral? Sooo deep
oh my god this song reminds me of the fault in our stars so now im sobbing
Our memories depend on a faulty camera in our minds :`( this song and video makes the tears falll every time.. sooo lovely and sad..
I'm just really listening to the lyrics for the first time, and they are amazing and gut-wrenchin g . I'm pretty sure I'd never be able to watch the video for this. (:''''''{
\(°ô°)/
So who's gonna watch you die?
Love is watching someone die
I think this song might be my favourite right now (: but the video...my word )':
This song is beautiful
The first line oh my god
So. Beautiful.
Oh my God this is too beautiful

Song that made me love this band.

One day my awesome teacher decided to share amazing and good music with us. She played new year by death cab for cutie. I was like woooo!!!!! Yeah!! I soon then realized that I was the only one dancing and mouthing the words. People still listen to pop crap and stuff.

Listened to this song quite a bit as my Mom was in her last stages of ALS, a fatal neuroligical disease with no cure. My mom was at home receiving hospice care. I'd leave and listen to this. I can vouch that love is watching someone die.
So beautiful
Every plan is a tiny prayer to Father Time
So sad!! :( love it though. Follow me and I'll follow back!
...love is watching someone die...
So who's gonna watch you die?

Perfect
Why does Plans get such a bad wrap? I think it has some of their deepest lyrics out of any of their albums...
Just reading the lyrics makes me cry
OMG!!!!! I €ried a bunch. So true though
Gibbard's songwriting at its finest
Painful song.
This song is so deep and meaningful.. . . i cried :')
I cried
Oh the feels!
Sad but true... Never really thought of it like this

Love is watching someone die,WOW...I never looked at it that way,so true so real..DCFC great band.
So sad. I almost don't want to hear it!
I fell in love with this song the instant I heard it. *This* is true music.
Powerful and painful. Beautiful yet horrifying.
So who's gonna watch you die? Man, that's heavy.
this song unbelievably sad, the ending kinda feels like you're watching someone die and the dying had just taken their final breath.....: ' (
Was great other than the 25 seconds of dead air at the end.

The story of the death of my father.
