Even diehard fans of lesbian twin musicians Tegan and Sara have to admit that their latest single ranks with their finest. “I Was a Fool” is filled with the sort of lush melancholy longing we haven’t heard since the heyday of The Smiths.
Come on, who hasn’t wandered aimlessly around in a haze following a painful breakup? The twins sing aching lyrics such as “Do you remember I searched you out / How I climbed your city’s walls? / Do you remember me as devout / How I prayed for your calls?” while a young girl roams the city streets alone.
And this is just the lyric video!
