The National - Hard To Find
They’ve done it again. The folks in The National have put together an emotionally charged, well-written album. It is just gorgeous.
Hard To Find, the closing track, is soft and heavy. There is a certain vicarious matter-of-factness about it that hits me in the chest every time I listen to it. The song revolves around past love. “There’s a lot I’ve not forgotten,” Matt Berninger sings. He has difficulty articulating everything about the attraction, and he’s not expecting things to work out again. If he tried to rekindle it himself, he knows that she’ll disappear. Regardless, he’s “still watching for the signs.”
Trouble will find me,
