random ramblings of a tegan and sara fanatic :D
I described hearing that song for the first time to be like Sara was standing on my chest. I just felt really sad. I know that when Sara was writing these songs it was during the end of her relationship, and it was someone she’d been friends with for almost ten years and been with for four years. It was just the psyche of it, when you’ve known someone for half your life, literally, and then have to leave them, and not necessarily because you want to but just because it’s the right thing to do. It’s just not healthy and you’re not good anymore, there’s no growth, and you have to have growth. And when I hear that song, the idea of all that happening just makes me sick to my stomach a little bit.
