hollywood bowl - 7.5.09

death cab for cutie played the hollywood bowl last night. great review and some of my photos over on buzz bands.

it was one of those interesting nights where i didn’t quite know what to feel. maybe it was because i was packing a monster lens and too preoccupied to be a good listener. whatever the case, i loved hearing “cath” live. for me, it’s one of the most tragic songs ever.

and probably my biggest fear.

Cath, she stands
With a well intentioned man
But she can’t relax
With his hand on the small of her back
And as the flash bulbs burst
She holds a smile
Like someone would hold
A crying child

And soon everybody will ask
What became of you
‘Cause your heart was dying fast
And you didn’t know what to do

Cath, it seems
That you live in someone else’s dream
In a hand-me-down wedding dress
With the things that could’ve been
All repressed

But you said your vows
And you closed the door
On so many men
Who would have loved you more

And soon everybody will ask
What became of you
‘Cause your heart was dying fast
And you didn’t know what to do

The whispers that it won’t last
Run up and down the pews
But if their hearts were dying that fast
They’d have done the same as you

And I’d have done the same as you
