And I hope you will forget things I still lack…

May 8, 2010

Haven’t put up something by my favorite band in awhile. This one suits my mood for some reason. Lyrics follow. Because as incredible as the music is in any Brand New song, there’s not a band out there that can hold a candle to their lyrics.

Was losing all my friends
Was losing them to drinking and to driving
Was losing all my friends but I got them back

I am on the mend
At least now I can say that I am trying
And I hope you will forget things I still lack

Yeah
Yeah

Is it in you now?
To bear to hear the truth that you have spoken
Twisted up by knaves
to make a trap for fools

Is it in you now?
To watch the things you gave your life to broken
And stoop and build them up with worn out tools

Yeah *Chorus*

Nothing gets so bad
A whisper from your father couldn’t fix it
Your whispers like a bridge, he’s a river span

Take all that you have
and turn it into something you were missing
Somebody threw that brick
And shattered all your plans

Yeah *Chorus*

Time to get the seeds into the cold ground
It takes a while to grow anything
Before its coming to an end yeah

Before you put my body in the cold ground, take some time to warm it with your hands
Before it’s coming to an end, yeah

It’s coming to an end

Do you miss the blend
Of colours she left in your black and white field
Do you feel condemned just being there?

I am not your friend
I am just a man who knows how to feel

I’m not your friend
I’m not your lover,
I’m not your family.

Yeah *Chorus*

Time to get the seeds into the cold ground
It takes a while to grow anything
Before it’s coming to an end yeah
