Bon Iver - For Emma

So apropos
Saw death on a sunny snow

For every life...
Forego the parable.
Seek the light.
My knees are cold.

Running home
Running home
Running home
Running home

Go find another lover;
To bring a- to string along!

With all your lies,
You're still very lovable.
I toured the light
So many foreign roads
For Emma, forever ago.

Boston-based musicians John DeHaven and Randy Pingrey add horns to “For Emma”; surprisingly, their company doesn’t break the album’s spell of isolation, but rather strengthens it, as if they’re only his imaginary friends. The dialogue format that appears here is from the album’s liner notes.
