This is where I ruin that Coldplay song everyone likes. I love how this song is basically a 3-chord-country song that mixes in motifs of jaundice, suicide, drowning, and the futility of loving someone else. My favorite line is "then I took my turn/what a thing to have done." That sentiment of "everyone else has tried, so I guess I will too now" has no business being in a pop song, but there it is, and it's beautiful and sad. It's overshadowed by the "bleed myself dry," but it's subtly powerful in a short, sweet song like this.
