Death Cab For Cutie - What Sarah Said Lyrics | MetroLyrics
Interpretation is in the parantheses! He would have rather dealt with the pain of losing her to death than to have never been with her at all And I looked around at all the eyes on the ground As the TV entertained itself everyone in the waiting room stares down at the ground because they are in their own little worlds, concerned about their loved ones. The TV is 'entertaining' itself because no one cares to watch tv while they are at the hospital 'Cause there's no comfort in the waiting room Just nervous paces bracing for bad news its impossible to be comfortable in a waiting room because everyone is just waiting to hear the future or temination of their loved ones lives Then the nurse comes around and everyone lifts their head everyone tries to meet the eyes of the nurse in desperate attempt to find the news about their loved ones But I'm thinking of what Sarah said That love is watching someone die ultimately, love is being able to let someone go die. So who's going to watch you die? I got this from Yahoo : It turns out that what Sarah actually said--"love is watching someone die"--is the thesis of the entire album. I think that this song uses the hospital scenario to represent the many ways you can lose someone, whether it be a death by illness like in the song or by watching someone fade away and self destruct. This song holds one of my favourite lines from any song - 'and I knew that you were a truth, i would rather lose, than to have never lain beside at all' -which is basically the same as saying it is better to have loved and lost than to have never loved at all, which is what this song is about, the pain of watching someone you love slip away.
