>> IT’S ONLY LIFE (live)

31 Mar

I’m loving Port of Morrow, the new album by The Shins, and in particular It’s Only Life, probably the most personal of James Mercer’s songs, as he sings in the chorus:

I’ve been down the very road you’re walking now
It doesn’t have to be so dark and lonesome
Takes a while til we can figure this thing out
And turn it back around…

Youtube doesn’t have an album version for the song out there, but I prefer that to any of the live versions I can find. That said, this sorrowful rendition on Saturday Night Live gets pretty close:

Seriously, though, you should buy the album if you haven’t done already, as it’s magnificent.
