The National live, for Pitchfork

Cool to be able to see the pieces that make up the wall of sound in Terrible Love.

Matt Berninger told Spinner about the subject. “There is a lot of mental chaos and the character is overwhelmed a lot. Terrible Love, it isn’t necessarily so bad, it’s just about being overwhelmed by this emotion of love, whatever that is, or if you did something wrong to someone you love. There’s a lot of stress and anxiety on there.”

The official video (directed by Tom Berninger) also has some wonderful live footage.

And I can’t fall asleep
Without a little help
It takes awhile to settle down
My ship of hopes
Wait til the past

It takes an ocean not to break
