S. Patricia Kandou : The narrative order: "Sleep on the Floor", "Angela", "Cleopatra, "Ophelia" (order is also exact opposite of the time release of the videos on YouTube). After her father's death ("my father in a casket", Cleopatra lyrics), girl is asked by guy to leave town, but she didn't and ends up bearing a child to another guy and of course has regrets ("Angela" lyrics starts with referring to the guy who left town and there's a scene of them in "Angela" video that is taken from the "Sleep on the Floor" clip) and ironically feels free and "home at last" ("Angela" lyrics) when she goes out of the house. In Cleopatra, she's the taxi driver (proof: the same wave tattoo on arm and scar on cheek) and is "divorced" ("Cleopatra" lyrics) (also, the end shows how she didn't enter the house of her ex-husband along with her son) ("Ophelia" lyrics: "got a little paycheck, you gotta move"). Like the Ophelia character in Shakespeare's "Hamlet", the story's about a girl and choices and 'what if's of two worlds (there's always a splitting scene of one's self in all four videos), and, like the Cleopatra character in Shakespeare's "Antony and Cleopatra", she had her times of glory, but that's past now. In the song Ophelia, Wesley (the vocalist) talks of how she has "been on [Wesley's] mind", reflecting on the whole narrative, and thus the production of the brilliantly interconnected songs and video clips. What do you think?

Gab L : i have discovered The Lumineers and i am happy

Jason : Here's the divergent paths: Sleeping on the Floor - Either she "left this town" and went with the guy, got married, got pregnant, OR she never left. The end. Angela - Either she gets back in bed & stays with the guy she had married, OR she leaves and starts a new life. Cleopatra - Either she drops her son off with the father she left, OR is coming home to the man she married because she never left him in the first place. Moral of the story: Go out and have YOUR adventure, because all the paths would've be different had she just stayed home. Truly beautiful.. made my heart swell for life.

Aleksandra M : [ TEXT ] When you left this town, with your windows down And the wilderness inside Let the exits pass, all the tar and glass 'Til the road and sky align The strangers in this town, They raise you up just to cut you down Oh Angela it's a long time coming And your Volvo lights lit up green and white With the cities on the signs But you held your course to some distant war In the corners of your mind From the second time around The only love I ever found Oh Angela it's a long time coming Home at last Were you safe and warm in your coat of arms With your fingers in a fist Did you hear the notes, all those static codes In the radio abyss? Strangers in this town, They raise you up just to cut you down Oh Angela it's a long time coming Oh Angela spent your whole life running away Home at last Home at last Vacancy, hotel room, lost in me, lost in you Angela, on my knees, I belong, I believe Home at last Home at last Home at last Home at last Home at last Mmm

Frankrado : Many of us can't find home, even when we're there.

Jackie House : People have mentioned the scars, but has anyone noticed this girl and the girl from sleep on the floor have the same wave tattoo?

Abbie Schmidt : The piano at the end is just magical

The Prince, the Rose & La Muerte : every single frickin day i think about taking the keys and driving....driving till im lost....and never looking back. God it hurts how much i need to leave. I cant do this anymore.

Justanotherstylee : this video makes me so glad I'm not the only one who feels alone. I don't mean lonely in a sense that I don't have a girlfriend or wife or whatever. It's something deeper than that. alone in that true art is loneliness and that the few who are privileged to harmonize with its vibration; live terribly misunderstood lives and are criticized and categorized by society are the only ones who can know true beauty. but while its lonely.. its moving. inspiring. and electric.

Marcus : After almost 2 years, I finally put the pieces together and finished this puzzle. The Lumineers made this up perfectly. The videos, the story, the signs, everything. This is simply amazing.

Daniel Tougaard : She falls in love with a guy (Ophelia). Her father dies and the guy she loves asks her to leave town with him (Sleep On The Floor) but she stays in that town. She marries a guy she doesn't love and has a child (Angela). When she's old and divorced she regrets not leaving town with her lover, back when her father died (Cleopatra). Credit to Swiftologist for this theory.

BlackSkorpion1991 : if you dont get goosebumps when he sings "home at laaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaast" you are dead inside.

Dave Conrad : America could be so beautiful if artists were allowed to design society

Connor Gorman : The connectivity between songs is what separates The Lumineers from the rest. Any one else wonder if Angela and "Angie" from Slow It Down are the same person?

Rebecca : 'The three ladies motel', Ophelia, Cleopatra, Angela. Love it.
