Gonna Take a Trip To Laredo

Laredo by the underrated Band of Horses out of North Carolina off their latest release Infinite Arms. Song of the Year nominee...

Gonna take a trip to Laredo
Gonna take a dip in the lake
Oh, I'm at a crossroads with myself
I don't got no one else

Impossibilities at the door
I won't be needing them no more
Oh, is this the first time in your life?
It's hard just to get by

But oh, my love, don't you even know?
And oh, my love, are you really gone?

And can you see the world through a window?
Are you having troubles in droves?
Oh, it ain't the worst thing I could do
Is get back home to you

I put a bullet in my Kia Sorento
A kitchen knife fucked in my face
Throw me in the deep of Jammer Lake
Believe me when I say

That oh, my love, you don't even call
And oh, my love, is that you on the phone?

And oh, my love, you don't even know
That oh, my love, are you really gone?

Yes it is probably the best one on the album - I think the lyrics are a little corn ball though...
