Weekend Wake Up: The Crane Wife 3 by The Decemberists

The Decemberists: The Crane Wife 3

This take on a Japanese fable from the Portland, OR indie collective is a sad and delicate tale of a man who finds a wire only to find out later she is actually a crane and must end their relationship.  Symbolically the song is about finding someone to love just to find out later down the road they never were who you thought they were in the first place.  Hopefully that isn’t the case for you on this lowly morning, but regardless let his mistral melodies comfort you in bed.
