For Emma Lyrics

(So apropos:
Saw death on a sunny snow)

Him:
"For every life..."

Her:
"Forgoe the parable."

Him:
"Seek the light."

Her:

    So very a romantic set up:
    Just google Caspar David Friedrich painting the winter?
    So very romantic the features in the lyrics:
    Little communication,
    broken text,
    uncompleted sentences,
    feelings
    sketching a person recalling a person good old fashion named Emma.
    Being way away from home,
    travelling foreign roads
    after the relation split up?
    Go find another lover.

    Feeling cold, snow, death.
    Running back home to Emma,
    even if she is a lier?
    To meet a second choice Emma is better than not having Emma no more?
    Dont´t run home.
    There is no Emma no more and the cosy home back home the name stands for is just only a romantic nostalgia?

    Best chocie to recall the romantic idea of that good Emma girl by listening to Bon Iver "For Emma" more frequently.
