No times for poems, so I just talk more and feel less.
Some nights it feels like my mind and my body are a million miles apart. My mind aligning itself with the constellations, pushing waves across the Atlantic or creating sand storms in the Sahara. My body remains here, rooted under layers of blankets while my fingers walk up and down the wall. I think I’m trying to reunite with my thoughts, bring them back to Earth but this only happens when I dream, when I close my eyes and let my mind tiptoe home- stopping to take pictures along the way to share. In the morning, we reunite. We embrace.
"Girls Chase Boys started out as a break up song but took on a deeper meaning as I continued writing. More than just being about my experience, its focus shifted to include the idea that, no matter who or how we love, we are all the same.
The video takes that idea one step further, and attempts to turn stereotypical gender roles on their head. Girls don’t exclusively chase boys. We all know this! We all chase each other and in the end we are all chasing after the same thing: love.”

The Moon Song (Studio Version Duet) - Karen O featuring Ezra Koenig
In this new rendition of “The Moon Song,” Karen O is joined by Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig. “I wrote the song as a duet,” Karen O explained. “I was really excited at the prospect of getting to record it with a male vocalist. Ezra was super cool and open, he slipped into character like a champ and damn he’s got the goods.”
A special three-song EP of “The Moon Song” arrives this week on iTunes.
