Kings Of Convenience – “24-25”
It’s a sunny, cold day and I’m riding to Fairfield, CT in my friend’s car. I popped in the latest Kings Of Convenience album, Declaration of Dependence, and I’m really struck by a lot of the lyrics. The first track, “24-25” is still my favorite… and it’s pretty ironic that I’ll be turning 25 at the end of the month.
“What we built is bigger than the sum of two.
But somewhere I lost count of my own.
And somehow I must find it alone.
24 and blooming like the fields of May.
25 and yearning for a ticket out.”
