I bet that garden is in bloom today is resplendent it reminds me of you you live you're life like you're walking on a wire after days like this you're gonna feel tired Honestly what could be better than this? On a bench you remind me with a kiss. Somedays I wish I was with you In the darkness, the darkness of your room every room deserves a window for a view so at night the aether shines it's light for you But honestly what could be better than this? On a bench you surprise me with a kiss. Well now you're distant i feel totally disconected Honestly it came a little unexpected I thought we were farmers I thought we would figure this all out Replant the seed and watch it start to sprout Honestly what could be better than this? On a bench you remind me with a kiss.
You must think everything is free That gasoline comes at a donation policy Or I live to the highest integrity That I'm not a slave to the fiat currency So I'll work in the service industry I'll give people exactly what they need Cause I don't work in a music factory To myself I will keep all of these dreams I think you're full of shit when you don't throw in the hat You came to the house show but all you brought was yourself a 6 pack You're only concern is fueling you're internal needs When a little bit of charity could fuel this community Say goodbye to the DIY band We pave the way for the privilege of the corporation This song's not about commerce and what you pay for it's about sacrifice friendship and so much more But you'll never truly understand You weren't there you weren't in the van after a bad show in Kennewick Washington No you'll never know that sort of frustration
The sun began to set and we went through Chuckanut Drive No learners permit yet but I know we'll survive Your glittering brilliance it's always in bloom I felt this spark since that show at the Honeymoon Before you left me in your dust To do what you must There was no comparison a perfect day spent in Bow-Edison There's a librarian with eyes like a Kawasaki She's a nobel citizen and she's the girl for me Her heart is tender her mind is sharp She's great for conversations or kisses in the dark she leaves me in her dust to do what she must but there was no comparison a perfect day in Bow-Edison The winter gets cold I could feel us getting old stuck in routine feeling bad and watching movies you had to leave it was hard to see this end hardest still was losing my best friend as you leave me in your dust to do what you must but there was no comparison a perfect day in Bow-Edison
This is a weakerthans song. Google their lyrics. They are great.
well you said it was time we leave this place, i said it was time for you to run away but there were more rocks in my shoes than i could ever count, and hear me out i can't talk since they put me down and like it ever mattered, i turned to an old friend to emulate your speed away from the big sky state but i could never get away from this town it's a lost and found of shitty dudes and i'm bummed out and when i think of you, all i ever feel is hate but what's the point it's just a face on a page but i can still see its grinning teeth gouging into me the past that i wanted to cut clean and get out! get out!
i like the way your mouth scrunches up when you're about to laugh like you don't want it to show, a shy elephant's child, i always think about that the way you fall asleep, you pressed so hard onto me wrinkles of my tshirt in the spots you felt at peace like these wings flying me a way, i feel so empty without the things that make me whole, the silence between the sounds and i try i try i try not to make myself as small as possible but when i wake up without you, burnin from the nightmares, i feel so cold i don't wanna settle for a home that just feels vacant without you i'd always make too much breakfast, i'd just talk to the walls i'd call out your name like were in the other room i wanna hear all your thoughts, i wanna hear all your jokes again and again like it's not a love song, it's a need song, it's a song by you and me song like Reign Over Me i'd slowly come to a scream, so i'll pull my knees i wanna feel you breathe
you always took the risk, never doubted your chances we were the kings of the summer all year round, we were young and reckless this song's called 20 hours, because it didnt even take a day for you to clear out all your shit and go away like being held down and beaten, i saw it all fade to black 34 sodas for ten bucks in a tied up trash bag and i remember when we would talk and sing shitheads until 6 am when we would finally get to sleep but now all it is to me is like a curtain going down on my memories like it's the end and i know everyone who knew us, never would have doubted, maybe never would have said it out loud that there was fire in your breath, there were only broken teeth in your mouth i was 6 years old again, forgetting you at school like you remembered the whole time but tried to play it cruel like i was winning everything i wanted to lose and i am trembling, i am shaking, and i can't pretend that i don't know you were the one friend it was hardest to finally let go i am the black tape with your picture, born into the world as snow but stained so red now it made a brown spot in the grass below i ran out to the backyard, losing my breath, fighting the woods like they were you breaking stick after branch looking for a hint or a tiny clue that you're still around, that you exist that you aren't just the smell of medication and piss
