Day 8 x 400 Lux

You pick me up and take me home again
Head out the window again
We're hollow like the bottles that we drain
You drape your wrists over the steering wheel
Pulses can drive from here
We might be hollow, but we're brave

And I like you
I love these roads where the houses don't change (and I like you)
Where we can talk like there's something to say (and I like you)
I'm glad that we stopped kissing the tar on the highway (and I like you)
We move in the tree streets
I'd like it if you stayed

Now we're wearing long sleeves and the heating comes on
(You buy me orange juice)
We're getting good at this
Dreams of clean teeth
I can tell that you're tired
But you keep the car on
While you're waiting out front

-Lorde, 400 Lux - Pure Heroine 
 I love this song cause it represents two people driving around the same place constantly through each season and although nothings changed, it keeps getting better. This works on a literal and metaphorical level. I love it and think it's the perfect autumn song. Summer is over (kind of) and winter is coming (kind of). It means a lot to me because I've spent so much time in the car: driving to and from school, driving to and from work, driving to your house, driving to my house, driving to his house, driving to her house, driving to get food, driving back home. Every season. The same places. The same people. Yet a different experience each time with happy feelings associated with each moment. This song represents the eternal youth that lives within me throughout every season....

(and I like you)
