Top 6 songs by Bright Eyes

You may know, or have heard of, the band Bright Eyes. Recently, I've been listening to a lot of their music and finding more and more songs that I love.

They have a very specific sound. It's kind of whiny. It's kind of indie. It's kind of depressing. But it's extremely vulnerable and honestly poetic. Some of my favorite tracks below.

LOVER I DON'T HAVE TO LOVE

This is a more "upbeat" song by Bright Eyes. It's technically an anti-"love" anthem. Going through the motion without the emotion.

LUA

This is one of my personal favorites of all time. 

FIRST DAY OF MY LIFE

I first heard this song as a cover, by Mac Miller. Strange, I know. But I instantly got hooked on this song. It's so sweet.

NO LIES, JUST LOVE

This track follows a chilling narrative. About the singer contemplating suicide. He feels like he doesn't fit in anymore...something's just off. But then he finds out that his brother's expecting a baby. And he (the singer) feels the need to go onward with life and protect the baby from the cruelty of the world.

So please forgive what I have done. You can't stay mad at the setting sun, cause we all get tired, I mean eventually...there is nothing left to do but sleep.
I'd like to make some changes, before you arrive. So when your new eyes meet mine, they won't see no lies, just love. I will be pure. No, no, I know I will be pure. Like snow, like gold, like snow, like gold.
