The Lumineers ask, "What if?" with three brilliant videos

These three videos have stolen my attention for the last several days, and not only because I love these songs, but because of their interwoven stories and their wrestling with the effects of simple choices.

Like a battered wife wondering when to leave and find home at last because, 

The strangers in this town,
They raise you up just to cut you down
Oh Angela it's a long time coming

Let the exits pass, all the tar and glass
'Til the road and sky align

Notice the taxi at the end?

It's driven by a mother whose wrestling with loneliness and who could have had the love of her life but couldn't. Because of a black dress and her father in a casket. 

So I drive a taxi, and the traffic distracts me
From the strangers in my backseat, they remind me of you

But I was late for this, late for that, late for the love of my life
And when I die alone, when I die alone, when I die I'll be on time


But what if? 

What if we pack a toothbrush, take a withdrawal slip, and take all of our savings out?

What if we rail against our dying day?

Cause if we don't leave now, we might never make it out.
