  1. şarkının hikayesi, klibin muhteşemliği... seçim yapmak hiç bu kadar iyi anlatılmamıştı. yola çıkarken dinlenecek şarkılar listesinin başına eklendi, 1 numara. dörtlemenin devamı için (bkz: angela - the lumineers)

    işte sözleri:

    pack yourself a toothbrush dear
    pack yourself a favorite blouse
    take a withdrawal slip
    take all of your savings out
    'cause if we don't leave this town
    we might never make it out
    i was not born to drown
    baby come on
    forget what father brennan said
    we were not born in sin
    leave a note on your bed
    let your mother know you're safe
    and by the time she wakes
    we'll have driven through the state
    we'll have driven through the night
    baby come on
    if the sun don't shine on me today
    and if the subways flood and bridges break
    will you lay yourself down and dig your grave
    or will you rail against your dying day
    and when we looked outside
    couldn't even see the sky
    how do you pay the rent
    is it your parents
    or is hard work dear
    holding the atmosphere
    i don't wanna live like that, yeah
    if the sun don't shine on me today
    if the subways flood and bridges break
    jesus christ can't save me tonight
    put on your dress, yes wear something nice
    decide on me, yea decide on us
    oh, oh, oh, illinois, illinois
    pack yourself a toothbrush dear
    pack yourself a favorite blouse
    take a withdrawal slip
    take all of your savings out
    'cause if we don't leave this town
    we might never make it out
