Out of Tune [LotD #13]
Today's Lyric of the Day comes from Real Estate. It's their 2011 song "Out of Tune".
"You play along to songs written for you
But you're all out of tune"
www.youtube.com
It's simple, but it's not empty: there definitely is something to be said for playing to the beat of someone else's drum, to extend the metaphor. This lyric invites us not only to avoid playing to songs written for us (we should write our own songs), but also to be at peace - in tune - with what we're doing, even if paving your own way is not possible.

This card reminded me that I haven't listened to Real Estate in years. Changing that right now! Thanks!

I only discovered them fairly recently, but they're definitely worth keeping in the library
