What Sarah Said - Death Cab For Cutie
"You know, at this point, we’re playing songs I literally wrote when I was 20. I’m 36 now. And they are about things I really cared about when I was 20 or people I really cared about when I was 20. Don’t get me wrong — it’s not as if I don’t care now. But these were situations I felt were so important, I had to write about them. When we’re playing live, it’s not that I’m thinking about how I felt about things. I think, more so, the performance of these songs is living in the moment of having written them and, also, being very aware of how much you’ve changed since you wrote that. It’s not difficult; it’s just something matter of fact. Like, ‘Wow, I know who I wrote that about and I haven’t thought about that person.’ It’s a little bit like looking at old photographs. ‘I cut my hair like that? That’s how I looked?’"
