About half way through the 3rd minute, in classic The National form…lead singer Matt Berninger takes a break from his usual baritone lyrics when a cool piano riff kicks in which then leads to the words that any girl would melt over… “you know I dreamed about you, for 29 years, before I saw you…”
2:31 – 3:08
From The Boxer, released through Beggars Banquet, 2007.

Were you listening to Celine Dion too down in Argentina?
yes!!! … love this song and this band.. it’s up there with their trumpet section in ‘fake empire’…
they were supposed to play at a festival i was at but their car broke down enroute so they pulled a no show… so disappointing.
