Another plea for some skinny love.

Bon Iver has been mentioned on this blog countless times and here I go again. I have been on SCOPE for nearly 3 years, and I don't think I have ever fallen in love with someone and his music so fast. This entire album is incredible. I would go as far to compare this album to your family dog--It is able to offer companionship when you are happy or sad. I am not going to bore you with his great reviews at Pitchfork,Spin, or the New York Times, but instead ask you to listen to this song twice. yes twice.. only because those who I have offered this beautiful gift to always appreciated it more the 2nd time through (truth). He is playing at the IMU Blackbox on April 5th as a part of Mission Creek Festival. It is only $8. Come see, and if you don't feel it was money well spent (it will be) then I will buy you a beer afterwards, as I will be walking on clouds.



**Pay special attention to stanza 4.. hot lyrics, haha.

"Skinny Love" -

Come on skinny love just last the year
Pour a little salt we were never here
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Staring at the sink of blood and crushed veneer



I tell my love to wreck it all
Cut out all the ropes and let me fall
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Right in the moment this order's tall



I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
In the morning I'll be with you
But it will be a different "kind"
I'll be holding all the tickets
And you'll be owning all the fines



Come on skinny love what happened here
Suckle on the hope in lite brassiere
My, my, my, my, my, my, my, my
Sullen load is full; so slow on the split


I told you to be patient
I told you to be fine
I told you to be balanced
I told you to be kind
Now all your love is wasted?
Then who the hell was I?
Now I'm breaking at the britches
And at the end of all your lines



Who will love you?
Who will fight?
Who will fall far behind?
