Boston

I'll admit; I don't know a lot about rock, pop, or hip-hop. Country's more my thing. I don't know a lot of the artists, bands or songs that the rest of the world claims are number one.
What I do know is that I heard Augustana's Boston on the radio once when it became popular on the local stations, and have been madly in love ever since. I had never heard of Augustana and had never heard any of their other songs - I still havn't, in fact - but Boston definantly least stole my attention.
I think it's hard for a group to mix such beautiful melodies and deep lyrics into a rock song, and pull it off with such charisma that it leaves you feeling something special when the last chord fades away. Augustana rose the the challenge amazingly well with Boston. Not only is the song a musical marvel, the music video, which I will post, is a literal work of art. And the lyrics? Pure poetry.
Here it is; Boston by Augustana.

Boston
Augustana

In the light of the sun, is there anyone?
Oh it has begun
Oh dear you look so lost, eyes are red and tears are shed
This world you must've crossed
She said...

You don't know me and you don't even care, oh yeah
Well you said....
You don't know me and you don't wear my chains, oh yeah...

Essential yet appealed
Carry all your thoughts across an open field
Where the flowers gaze at you...they're not the only ones who cry
When they see you
You said...

You don't know me and you don't even care, oh yeah
Well you said...
You don't know me and you don't wear my chains, oh yeah

She said I think I'll go to Boston

I think I'll start a new life,
I think I'll start it over, where no one knows my name,
I'll get out of California, I'm tired of the weather,
I think I'll get a lover and fly em' out to Spain
I think I'll go to Boston,
I think that I'm just tired,
I think I need a new town, to leave this all behind
I think I need a sunrise, I'm tired of the sunset,
I hear it's nice in the Summer, some snow would be nice

Whoa yeah..

You don't know me, and you don't even care
Whoa, yeah...


In Boston, where no one knows my name
Where no one knows my name
Where no one knows my name
In Boston, where no one knows my name
