Most of the time, when an artist/group makes a music video, it’s dubbed with the studio track. In this case, The Civil Wars performed their song live, walking down the street, with the wind blowing into their mics, people watching from their driveways, and all sorts of other distractions. The result is so much more pleasant and “real”, if you will, than your standard polished music video.
In life, you have friends you just tolerate, friends you like, and friends you love. Occasionally, if you are very lucky, you will befriend someone who is the salt to your pepper, the yin to your yang, the Thelma to your Louise, the Morrissey to your Johnny Marr. Joy Williams and JP White seemed to exemplify (before they parted ways, which broke my heart) the kind of love one person has for another that is, in no way, sexual or romantic, but, rather, is something much more intense and pure. I ache for a friendship like that. However, I fear that I will always love someone too much, or not enough, for it to ever happen. It’s a very delicate balance, and I am neither delicate nor balanced.
