Gah, this song is the best. Actually, I can say that about every song of theirs. But for me, this song is the most meaningful or most uplifting. Actually, I feel REALLY REALLY SAD when I listen to this song, especially at the start. But I get uplifted and hopeful during the chorus and at the end. So what I understand is that there’s this girl who broke up with the guy. He’s having mirages of her in the shower and he’s reminiscing the time when she kissed him on his futon. But the line “Well I hope you like it in Chicago” just kills me every time. So she left him and went to Chicago. And all of those “I won’t lose it” and “Hold it steady” just stabs my heart. So she left him but he won’t lose it, he won’t be crazy over it. Because don’t you know that he can lift a car up all by himself. He means that her going away won’t kill him and he’s strong, emotionally strong, that he can move on from her. The chorus is really uplifting and I sometimes cry to this song. And then he’s moving on, “I’ve been going out and trying to stay fit” and he “met someone who wears your glasses“. So he isn’t really over I guess since he’s inclined to someone similar to the previous girl. But this girl is different and he has finally moved on from the previous, signified by his new futon. And now, he won’t lose this new girl because he’s strong and actually cool. Because did you, did you, did you know that, he can lift a car up all by himself?
So bittersweet, so great. Aside from Iscariot, this is the song that comes straight from the heart. Though this song is about love and Iscariot is more general I think. I love all of their upbeat songs because that’s how I knew them but their slow songs are also really really good and I love these songs too. Gah, Walk the Moon is the best!
