Song of the Day: The Night We Met by Lord Huron

This song is by Lord Huron and appears on the album Strange Trails (2015).

Lyrics:

I am not the only traveler
Who has not repaid his debt
I’ve been searching for a trail to follow again
Take me back to the night we met
And then I can tell myself
What the hell I’m supposed to do
And then I can tell myself
Not to ride along with you

I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
Take me back to the night we met

I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
Haunted by the ghost of you
Take me back to the night we met
When the night was full of terrors
And your eyes were filled with tears
When you had not touched me yet
Take me back to the night we met

I had all and then most of you
Some and now none of you
Take me back to the night we met
I don’t know what I’m supposed to do
Haunted by the ghost of you
Take me back to the night we met

Strange Trails has received positive reviews from music critics:
-Rachel Brodsky of Spin called the album “enchanting from start to finish”, praising the lyricism, vocals, and instrumentation.
-Abby Johnston of the Austin Chronicle wrote “If a pair of 2010 EPs approximated an untamed jungle and 2012’s debut LP Lonesome Dreams a tree house amongst it, Lord Huron’s sophomore full-length Strange Trails is Ben Schneider’s completed bungalow, his little plot of land in lush wilds“.

— The band still focuses more on atmosphere and haunting, harmonic sound and rhythm than on progressions or memorable hooks, but the landscapes that they create are consistent and sound-defining, and there’s no shortage of eerie beauty in the melodies. “The Night We Met,” in particular, has a lullaby quality to its wistful, singsong melody (“I don’t know what I’m supposed to do/Haunted by the ghost of you”). — AllMusic

This song is featured in the television series 13 Reasons WhyThe Flash (2014 TV series), and The Originals (TV series).
