Song of the Day: The Milk Carton Kids - Michigan

Love this song:

"The Milk Carton Kids - Michigan"

Beautiful song.  Sad.  That song speaks to me on a lot of levels.  Not to mention that I'm from Michigan, which makes me wistful as well.

"And all that's left is a blind reflection
But you know what's coming and you regret it"


Lyrics, from SongMeanings.com:

The clouds move over Pontiac skies
Their silent thunder matches mine
I know this feeling from long ago
I wonder if it's gone now I know

So when she calls don't send her my way
When it hurts you'll know it's the right thing

Michigan's in the rearview now
Keep your hands where I can see them
You took the words right out of my mouth
When you knew that I would need them
What am I supposed to do now
Without you
Without you

It's unannounced like you'd expected
[Her mom broke down brake line in poor town records]
And all that's left is a blind reflection
But you know what's coming and you regret it

So when she comes don't send her my way
When it hurts most it's the right thing

Michigan's in the rearview now
Keep your hands where I can see them
You took the words right out of my mouth
When you knew that I would need them
What am I supposed to do now
Without you
Without you

Michigan's in the rearview now
Keep your hands where I can see them
You took the words right out of my mouth
When you knew that I would need them
What am I supposed to do now
Without you
Without you
