It found me deep beneath the water
This time it looked and felt so different
I'm begging to my loved ones, understand
I'm a useless man, the loving hand that you fell for
That you fell for

I took my fear back to Galileo
They told me son, just count your blessings
I wandered through those streets that you wouldn't mend
And I felt so low, the man I used to know
That you fell for, that you fell for

And oh, I wander
And oh, I live in fear
Cause when my shadow moves I shudder
For the fear inside my heart won't disappear, no dear

Cause I sold my spirit for your soul
I felt it running through my fingertips
I love you more than you will know
And I hope you understand
My strength lies in your hands

And oh, I wander
And oh, I live in fear
Cause when my shadow moves I shudder
For the fear inside my heart won't disappear, no dear

You took my only one, when I only wanted love
When I only wanted love

The singer best be careful not to venture into his falsetto range too often. The Coldplay critics will fall all over themselves to criticize and condemn such behavior.
 
I never fail to be astonished how, with the countless thousands of bands out there, an individual voice can be identified and recognised, as in this case.  Unique sound and in a different league to the cripplingly awful Mr Martin.

ps the fish hook in my lip stung a little, but it's ok now.

Thought it was Fleet Foxes!

yeah, I feel this song is particularly bland - his voice is both grating and soppy if that is possible

 
"Grating & Soppy" would be a good band name...or at least an album title.  Like steel cut oats.

Yes.  
Hmmm sounds a little like Travis-ish

Good tune.
Like this song.

Well produced but a bit too laid back for my taste.

They should do a tour with snow monkeys, vampire weekend and arcade fire. 
I keep hearing "Feeding line" in my head when I hear this song. THAT is an amazing song.

I very much agree with what you said about  MMJ and FF

This band seems to have a better quality!


I like bear..., but do not needs boys!
Yeah...repeat the same line over and over and call it a song. I like some things by this band but this is very mediocre....and did I say repetitive?

Great band, great song. Yet only 6,5. Come on RP-listeners you can do better than that.{#Yell}
 
let's see, I can get you anywhere from 6.4 to 6.7 right now......  but, I have to say 6 at this point in time, leaving you at the 6.6 I found it at.  Let me have a few listens and it might make a 7.  I have liked their other songs.
Great band, great song. Yet only 6,5. Come on RP-listeners you can do better than that.{#Yell}
