He cannot write a bad song... I'm floored, once again, by Sufjan friggin Stevens.
If you think this is the saddest song, check out Casimir Pulaski Day
This song is definitely one of the highlights of the Michigan album.
Karvastor, I think they are both anecdotal, otherwise his life has been COMPLETELY schizophreni c .
Sufjan had a very interesting mom-- compare these lyrics with those of Decatur, Or, Round Of Applause For Your Step Mother! from Illinoise. Assuming, of course, both songs refer to the same woman and neither are anecdotal. Very interesting!
Beautiful
Beautiful and sad.
Sad but true. He`s brave to share it.

Damn, all out of thumbs down.
So sad.

First Stevens song. Beautiful voice but almost too feminine for me. The lyrics are not cryptic at all; I like that. It is quite obvious what's going on. Good song.

World's saddest song.
He's okay, but he's no Josh Ritter.
oh surfjan<3 you make my life. his music is so moving.
i just want to cry when i listen to this song.
The memories and emotions this song incites are nostalgic...
Thanks for another "Pandora find". I am ashamed I've never heard of Sufjan :)
Just another gem from the mines of Sufjan.
