I ran across these guys after one of their songs was used as the final song of the first season of Breaking Bad. I was inspired to listen to their whole discography, and I have to say, of all the songs I’ve heard this year, this one is probably my favorite. It’s gorgeous, sad, nostalgic, hopeful, and swooningly romantic.
And I have no idea what it’s about. Maybe someone can enlighten me.

First of all, beautiful tribute to the best state in the country. I listened a couple times, and I think that he’s analogizing (think that’s the word I need) his love and longing for the way he lived in Alaska to the way he felt about a first / significant girlfriend that he’s also missing.
Man, that song made me miss Alaska!
Thank you! Yes, the analogy he draws between them is really beautiful, and haunting.
