Reckoner

Sam Roberts Band’s “Bridge to Nowhere” and Sullivan’s Island, SC. Corky’s “Poison Ivy” and Tuesday Night Podcasts. Every so often there’s a song you associate with an event or period of time, and every time you hear it again, you’re whisked right back to that moment. You’re then ripped right out of it by irritating minutiae like “your job” or “I’m about to have a car accident.” Such is the case with “Reckoner,” which we listened to in the car approximately 387 times over the Steve/Lindsey/EA Crew wedding weekend. Since then, I have listened to it approximately 579 more times. Enjoy.

Reckoner
Can you take it with you
Disavow the pleasure

You were not to blame for
Bittersweet distractors
Dare not speak his name
Did I cater to all you
All your needs?

Because we separate
it ripples our reflections
Because we separate
it ripples our reflections

Reckoner

Did I cater to all you
All your needs?
