one of my new favorite songs

The New Pornographers, "Challengers"

I'm not sure the lyrics line up with this interpretation, but the video, and the feeling I'm left with after this song, seems to speak to the challenges inherent in establishing a relationship with someone else, specifically the sacrifices one has to make of themselves in order to accommodate another's life into one's own.  This seems to illustrate it by depicting the latent feeling two people still have for each other that reunite even though they have grown so far apart, and now have lives accommodating others.
