Stubborn Love

I’ve just discovered a band called The Lumineers.  I stumbled upon one of their videos on YouTube.  The song is called “Stubborn Love,” which almost sounds like a tautology.  When is love not stubborn?  Isn’t that the whole point? The lyrics include the refrain “when we were young,” but I swear they all appear to be twelve years old.  Two other verses:

It’s better to feel pain
than nothing at all.
The opposite of love
is indifference.

Pay attention now.
I’m standing on your porch
screaming out.
I won’t leave until
you come downstairs.

Reminds me of the “Stella!” scene in Streetcar Named Desire. The song was recorded in an old bus, outside of Portland, OR.
