Your Ex-Lover Is Dead by Canadian band Stars is the exact opposite of the pop you usually get to hear (commercial pop that treats you like you’re an idiot and shoves clichés and bad taste down your throat). It’s original, it’s creative but most importantly- it has heart, something the music industry desperately needs more of. The vid you’re about to see was clearly inspired by the movie ‘Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind’. In case you missed it, do yourself a favor and watch it ASAP. You won’t regret it.

{When there’s nothing left to burn, you have to set yourself on fire}

God that was strange to see you again
Introduced by a friend of a friend
Smiled and said ‘yes I think we’ve met before’
In that instant it started to pour,
Captured a taxi despite all the rain
We drove in silence across Pont Champlain
And all of the time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name…

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
Tried to reach deep but you couldn’t get in
Now you’re outside me
You see all the beauty
Repent all your sin

It’s nothing but time and a face that you lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn’t choose
I’ll write you a postcard
I’ll send you the news
From a house down the road from real love…

Live through this, and you won’t look back…
Live through this, and you won’t look back…
Live through this, and you won’t look back…

There’s one thing I want to say, so I’ll be brave
You were what I wanted
I gave what I gave
I’m not sorry I met you
I’m not sorry it’s over
I’m not sorry there’s nothing to save

I’m not sorry there’s nothing to save…
