Their newest album has helped me immensely survive a heartbreak of three years. In a way this band, their music, has given me my voice back.

thanks for that quitewar... and welcome ta the forum!
been meaning to start a topic on what the songs mean for us. TAC is always sidesteppin interviews when they ask what the song means because it can mean different things for different people... i too was introduced to CO through a coworker at an absolute shite job. was super-stressed out and dreaded practically every day - then i was handed a copy of BBHF and Underachievers and it got me thru the day till i found other employment (got 3 kids to support). the music was exactly what i needed with lyrics that were somewhat sad and music that was uplifting.. great combo.. now thinking back what do the songs mean to me?
i cant help but feel that Come Back Margaret is about my grandma... when i read that Margaret is Traceyanne's Grandma (not sure if true), it made it more so altho it wouldnt have mattered if i never knew that tidbit.
James is another that shouts to me.. about a dear friend that has passed. i think we all have experienced that kind of loss but i this song (to me) speaks of a loss of a someone you love deeply that could never have been but you still are filled with regrets, maybe..

anyhow - wow too deep for tuesday morn!! thought the topic would be great to hear others takes on their vast list of songs and cover choices...

comeback margret is about tracyanne`s nan............

erm what the songs mean,tricky...i mean who can`t identify with say the line"i feel lost,i got lost*"

*she would sing that live,the tone,the intonation,from the heart..well it can`t fail to miss i suppose can it?

we all feel a little alone at times,mournful,sad,melancholic...or whatever....but there is an element,for me anyways that i enjoy sometimes feeling that way(paris match-t.s.c) my record collection to a degree is my defence,its where i go to seek solidity for my emmotions....it can enhance,cement or just help...its chosen carefully...not everythin i listen to has this bent,but a lot has,the smiths,leonard cohen,camera obscura,the list i suppose is endless...i do enjoy this kind of music,especially when you have no-one to love...even at this tender age......walkin the autumn,kickin up the leaves,its then you realise,bein alone or on your own,is fine,its beautiful.....anyways,erm enough.."don`t feel bad for me,i want you to know"

sorrows native son.............

ahh,okay this`ll do..erm last night i wern`t feelin to bright for one reason and another...i grabbed a couple albums out,one of which was coles corner-richard hawley...i played both sides three times over,i hadn`t heard it for a while...it was the start of changing my mood,pretty much in line with what i had written above....bout 9.40 pm a friend came by to see if i were okay...i was and am.........there`s a few friendly scratches in the album now.....its has so many contrasting styles for me,eric sartie,hank williams,frank sinatra...a lot of my friends are hawley fans...unfortunately the new vinyl i`m told is over £25 or summit....
