My Interpretation Homesickness and the longing for the love and the life left behind, as painful as it is, combined with solitude, does open occasional doors to soul-searching and self-discovery All the doubts, worries, thoughts get tangled up in his mind -- all the verses seem to be written down as small notes on different, unrelated occasions.
Fleeting thoughts, moments, observations, memories So the yearning for home, nostalgia, where everything is familiar and simple, is what keeps him sane when everything around him, including himself, are at the verge of falling apart I like the idea of Matt being on the road and taking down snippets of thoughts and observations only to compile them later on into this song.
Flag jleider on June 23, My Interpretation This seems to me like a heart-wrenching, but completely relatable story of a teenager's dependence on his girl for companionship and emotional support. He needs his girl. The second stanza Remember Really endearing, and revealing about their relationship. The third and eventually fifth is a detailing of the pressure he's feeling from most likely his family, but quite possibly himself, too.
He doesn't feel connected with his family or the other kids his age they way he feels connected with her. And in both situations, he feels a longing, and a need for his girl.
What I'm unsure about is how separated he actually is vs. Either she is gone for whatever reason broke up with him and he misses her, perhaps , or they are still together, but he is totally emotionally dependent upon her, and constantly feels like he needs her there with him because he loves her so very much.
Either way, it is a amazingly beautiful and heart-breaking story of a young man's love for his girl. I can't get over how truly incredible this band is, we are lucky to have them. This by no means a song about teenagers Flag tamops on January 21, Yeah I'm pretty skeptical that this is a song being sung from the perspective of a teenager with references to grades The whole song is "remember this I know I was a lot of things then Flag random on March 02, Whirling10 "I think I'm under the gun again" can also be interpreted that he has suicidal thoughts and he is thinking about killing himself.
Flag decayedCell on July 17, Just to clarify here. Before starting this song in concert Mr. Berninger said, "This is a song without fancy metaphors.
Its about being on the road and missing your wife. Whirling10 Thank you for laying out your interpretation so clearly and effectively! It's cool to see how this song could be applied to someone younger. Although Matt may have written this song about missing his wife and daughter while on the road touring, obviously any piece of art can provide different meanings to different people.
General Comment They started playing this at the tail-end of the "High Violet" tour, yeah? In that context, the lyrics seem pretty straightforward. He's starting to feel insignificant because he isn't around, and he is trying to reassure himself that he's important to loved ones- "but I am good and I am grounded.
I wonder if it will re-surface on a proper album in a few years? My Interpretation Lots of discussion about the line "I know I was a 45 percenter then". Obviously broadly he is saying he was an underdog, i. For example, if you have an Ace and a King against a pair of 7's. It means you're the first player to act in a hand. With a few exceptions this is generally the worst place to be statistically, as you have the least information about your opponents, so you are at a disadvantage.
A hand that you might play in a later position you would be mathematically correct to fold 'under the gun', For example, if you have a pair of 4s and you are first to act, the best play is to probably fold. There is likely to be someone behind you with a better hand and you would be betting blind as you would have to act first. Conversely, the same hand a pair of 4's in a later position might be a legitimate hand to play.
So, feeling 'under the gun again' implies someone who feels perpetually at a disadvantage, as if the world is conspiring to make things difficult for them. Which, after googling the term '45 percenter', could make it a political reference to the Obama administration? I could have the wrong end of the stick though, as I'm British and know little of American politics.
I'm almost positive the real lyrics are "45 percenter then" Flag b0sendorfer on June 01, I think this is spot on. The National were big supporters of Obama, both in and The 45 percenter was a pushed phrase by conservatives referring to the people who approved of what Obama was doing.
It could be something completely different, or it could just be trying to nail down a specific time period. It could also be showing slight dissatisfaction with the administration. Although they obviously still preferred Obama to the other option, seeing that they campaigned for him in Flag dramamoose on June 17, I think it's a nearly totally irrelevant number. Seems to me that the only important factors are the unemployment rate and the quality and pay of the jobs people are taking.
Flag Raving Lunatic on June 24, The political reference seems a bit of a stretch since the song seems to be about a guy losing his relationship. Flag cafarmer on July 04, Flag sbizzle on December 13, Song Meaning From an interview: - Listening to this record, I picked up a lot more loneliness or longing than death. There's a lot of love songs. I wrote it about missing my wife and daughter.
It's pretty simple. It's not about any other thing. My Opinion It's very hard for me to find a particular meaning of this song. Is it maybe about love that nobody supports, nobody agrees with but still, he needs her He's under the gun, he's grounded Which is interesting in and of itself due to The National's ongoing musical relationship with Sufjan.
Deliberate or not, it's a great little piece of connectivity. I thought the same thing. Very cool. Flag adieuamant on June 13, My Interpretation This is a very biased interpretation because I'm in the middle on one end of a long distance relationship.
I think the writer has been separated from a woman he holds very dear. Either by distance, or emotional trauma, these two people have been pulled apart. I choose to see it as separated by distance. I pull more from it this way. He feels fulfilled in most of his life; he knows his place. This is what makes me think, perhaps, it ended on a bad note. Davy could be a mutual friend of the couple.
He sees the writer without her, keeping on, and tells him "You look like you're doing well; you're standing a bit taller. Now for my derived personal meaning. This is exactly how I feel living miles away from the woman I love. I'm in school, working a fun job with family, and have very little bills.
The National:I Need My Girl Lyrics
Only a truly spectacular work can hold a similar meaning for a wide crowd, only growing a fan base for more than ten years. The National, however, has, and shows no signs of stopping. For as long as I can remember, the band has been a go-to in my alt-rock repertoire because of their incomparable ability to create a world of their own crafted with cozy sounds and lyrical depth. Their latest album, Trouble Will Find Me, released in via 4AD , quickly secured its place as my all-time favorite album due to those reasons among others. The National has been a household name in soft rock since their first critically acclaimed album release, Alligator, in

I Need My Girl lyrics
The song I Need My Girl has been one of my absolute favorites this month. I fell in love with it within the first 4 seconds of the song. It has an addictive intro, a rhythmic picking pattern on a guitar. It is the kind of intro that is good enough to make me press repeat. The rest of the song is amazing as well, so I usually end up playing it on repeat for a few hours. Seeing as I am in hibernation mode, this song is another mellower one, but it is definitely not boring. The National is not an extremely famous band, especially within high schoolers, but they are very well known in the Music Industry. In addition, they are very popular at music festivals.

I Need My Girl lyrics - The National
Though The National's latest release isn't a huge departure in any musical or conceptual sense, vocalist and songwriter Matt Berninger says it was made by a different group of men than those who made their previous albums. For one, parenthood has a way of reordering priorities for the three band members who have started families, and recording and touring takes on a different weight when you have a wife and child waiting at home. For another, they're no longer particularly concerned with how their music is received, a revelation Berninger makes while acknowledging that he had often found the band's relatively few negative reviews to be more stinging than their mountains of positive press were gratifying. That's a privileged position, he admits, as the band had followed a career trajectory that by had culminated in mope-rock masterpiece High Violet , an album whose triumph could have afforded them the opportunity to stand back and enjoy the spoils of their success for a few years.
