You ever discover, or rediscover, an older song and then become obsessed with how good it was/is? That is me right now with this 10 year old Nada Surf song “Inside of Love”.
It’s an absolute beautiful track chronicling the yearning to be the person in the good relationship when you seem to always be standing on the outside of that. I bet we’ve all felt like that at some point right?
I think the most pointed lyrics in the song come when lead singer Matthew Caws sings “I know the last page so well, I can’t read the first, so I just don’t start.” What a great metaphor for that feeling you get when you just don’t want to even deal with starting a new relationship after having gotten out of one or more that didn’t work.
Anyway, lie down or lean back, close your eyes, and enjoy this great song!
