My Least Favorite Life by Lera Lynn

My Least Favorite Life is one of the soundtracks of True Detective series. This song is closely connected to a dialogue of Rustin Cohle “time is a flat circle, and everything we’ve ever done or will do, we gonna do it over and over and over again”. accordingly wasting our lives with bad habits and lifestyles. Lera Lynn claims the song is about a lover who dies and is reborn as a crow, though the brokenness of the two of them is so entangled that she cannot tell whose broken wings are grounding them.


Lyrics

This is my least favorite life
The one where you fly and I don’t
A kiss holds a million deceits
And a lifetime goes up in smoke
This is my least favorite you
Who floats far above earth and stone
The nights that I twist on the rack
Is the time that I feel most at home

We’re wandering in the shade
And the rustle of fallen leaves
A bird on the edge of a blade
Lost now forever, my love, in a sweet memory

The station pulls away from the train
The blue pulls away from the sky
The whisper of two broken wings
Maybe they’re yours, maybe they’re mine
This is my least favorite life
The one where I am out of my mind
The one where you are just out of reach
one where I stay and you fly

I’m wandering in the shade
And the rustle of fallen leaves
A bird on the edge of the blade
Lost now forever, my love, in a sweet memory


Post Script
