3601. “Citrus” by The Hold Steady

Fan video:

While some of the other tracks are upbeat with downbeat lyrics, “Citrus” is a bit of a downbeat song with surprisingly hopeful lyrics. Well, for others.

According to the lyrics, Finn sees hints of Jesus and redemption in the eyes of lovers, Judas in the street corner dealers. It is a rather hopeful image until he turns it around and points out that, for himself, he’s “had kisses that make Judas seem sincere.”

Its a short little song, but not without its power.
