I was listening to my Last.fm playlist while working on taxes and the song Brick by Ben Folds Five came on. I had forgotten just how much I used to dig this track.


“And we drive
Now that I have found someone
I’m feeling more alone
than I ever have before

Shes a brick and I’m drowning
Off the coast and I’m headed

Ben Folds Five - Whatever and Ever Amen - Brick

The lyrics to this song are amazing… you can feel the despair of unrequited love. You can feel the singer “drowning.”
