"I Would Be Sad" has the perfect weight between past and future tense that totally nails loss.

The verses tell the story of the past and what happened, a heavy story of loss for sure, but the chorus implies this future that seems much more sure of itself.

The chorus uses the future tense “I would be sad,” and by mixing it with the past tense of the reasons why it carries an implied “but,” that we understand by the end of the song. So, I would be sad, but realistically, she wasn’t even worth it, it’s her loss, and she’s regret it. Perfect. 

Beautifully complex and poignant songwriting from the brothers.

They’re so weird that they’re perfect. Ezra Koenig is the best part.

Fuck the bullshit we tell each other to get away with being assholes. Fuck believing it, and fuck you.
