I would probably say
"but where are you naaa-aaaaa-aaa-howwww?"
in Haligh, Haligh.
at the start of 'June on the west coast'
they make me pure...
He sounds so angelic.
You know who else gives good sex noise? Shakira, that's who. On the first album, at least. She has a wide array of odd, horsey noises, which is how I imagine sex to be in Columia.
an absolute pleasure.
I would love to make sex noises with Shakira.
with Shakira before. We didn't have sex, though. We just hung out at a bus stop, faking orgasms.
"just when I get so lonesome I can't... SPEAK!"
or "red blooded white skinned and the blues, oh and the blues, I got the blues, THAT'S MEEEEE!" on Let's Not Shit Ourselves.
"...I'm came across a doctor, who appeared in quite poor health. I said "there's nothing that I can do for you, you can't do for yourself..."
The way it the line fits is sexual.
"failure always sounded better, lets fuck it up and make some noise"
or something like that
"but I think that I deserve her more than anyone deserves anything"
you have gotta applaud a line like that,he knows that he is gonna come off sounding like a prick but he goes for it anyway because thats how he feels
'And each morning she wakes
With a dream to describe
Something lovely that bloomed
In her beautiful mind
I say, "i'll trade you one
For two nightmares of mine
I have some where i die
I have some where we all die' - I think thats a funny line, shows his black sense of humour.
'Don’t you do what you’ve wanted to
Yeah, don’t destroy yourself like those cowards do
And maybe the sun keeps coming up because it has gotten used to you
And your constant need for proof' - just beautful
'For the moon never shines and the stars never rise
Without bringing me dreams
Haunted by the ghosts of those bright eyes' - I love the way he sings that last line.
When the music swells half way through the song:
"But these are days we dream about, when the sunlight paints us gold, and this apartment cannot be prettier as we dance up there alone..." etc.
you will return to me"
followed by the big jangly bit and punctuation horror that is "you will. you?" etc
AND YOU THINK I'D BETTER FOR IT
i forgot about that. what an idiot.
Last night, my brother he got drunk and drove. And this cop pulled him off to the side of the road.
And he said, "Officer! Officer! You have got the wrong man.
No, no, I'm a student of medicine, the son of a banker, you don't understand!"
The cop said, "No one got hurt, you should be thankful. And you carelessness,
it is something awful. And no, I can't just let you go. And though your father's name is known,
your decisions are yours alone. You are nothing but a stepping stone
on a path to debt, to loss, to shame."
Dunno, I really like them. Kind of depressing but at least realistic.
P.S. I copied them from a lyrics website so it looks bad.
the last few months
i've been living with this couple
you know the kind: who buy everything in double
yeah, they fit together like a puzzle
i love their love and i am thankful
that someone actually receives the prize that was promised
by all those fairy tales that drugged us
and still to me I’m sick, lonely
no laurel tree, just green envy
will my number come up eventually?
like love’s some kind of lottery
where you scratch and see what’s underneath
just one cherry
i'll play again, get lucky
I've heard them sing in the shower
and making speeches to their sister on the telephone.
Saying, You come home.
Darling, you come here.
Don’t stay so far away from me.
This weather has me wanting love more tangible.
Something I can hold because it’s getting cold.
I said, hold up our fists to the flame in the sky
to block out the light that is reaching for our eyes
because it, because it would blind us. Yeah, It will blind us.
my favouritist ever song
that i love you far too much.
then the whole you are my sunshine bit.
i may have a bright eyes binge soon.
feel like I'm on the cusp of revisiting my Connor Oberst fan-boy days
of these moments.
i just used to listen to that song on repeat for hours.
not a good time...
one before it aswell though.
those two songs are my very favourite bright eyes songs ever. if only there was a thread for that eh?
these colors you see were picked in advance
by some careful hand
with an absolute concept of beauty.
They are smeared
and these blurs come in random order
and they color the eyes of your former lovers.
Hers were green like July except when she cried they were red
on motion sickness. he sings "except when I MADE HER CRY".
comedy bastard lolz.
but i’d rather be working for a paycheck/than waiting to win the lottery
of all time. FACT.
on some picturesque grave"
the way doors can open and people just walk in it's not unexpected, no, it's just how you planned it, starting to think that it might never happen but now it is happening"
into love with awkward, perfect grace"
I stood in your entry way
A place where we used to wait
For cars to carry us away
Like once in this storm
They drove me and Justin home
The music was just being born
It was all I was longing for
Now I'm on a plane
Of singing my songs again
Oh, please don't think ill of it
It's the reason I exist
You're the crutch of a cripple
You're the calm of a conscience
You're the peace that I have found
When all these voices talk too loud
Well, you are quietly reassuring me
With the hands of a healer
And the tongue of a teacher
It's your voice that I have known
To be the first one on the phone
Yeah, you ran all the lights to the hospital
So don't you say to me
That life's a trap
The future is nothing but a tragedy
Because I'll be out of that window
Yeah, I'll start wishing to die again
Just say we're not walking backwards, kid
And show me to the door
And I'll walk behind
Out into the hot sunlight
Where the world's very much alive
Even when I close my eyes
Well, should I admit
That my promise is counterfeit
That I'm careless and childish
And that's all I can hope to be
And would you concede
That I think only of myself
I refuse everybody's help
Who has been reaching out for me?
Well, you reach with the soul of a sailor
And the swing of a miner
You have cleared the rock away
Leaving gold there in its place
And it is more than anyone could claim
Oh, with the sense of a banker
And with the touch of a tailor
You saved this life for me
And you have sown it to beauty
And I am grateful now and I will always be
So would you sing with me
The song is all I know
Some truths are told now only in a melody
So I've been writing a new one
Yeah, I've been taking my time with it
It's gonna be so perfect
It's gonna hold all of us inside of it
You will see
If you just add your harmony
I think it would be complete
And be worthy of singing
My clumsy symphony
Yeah, you're the cool of the water
You're the start of the summer
Keep me still like a anchor
In a storm you're the cellar
When I'm heavy with worry make me light as a feather
When I'm deafened by anger you're the song I remember
With the grace of a dancer and the strength of a pillar
When I'm starving to suffer you just fill me with laughter
You're a poet
And a saint
You are the only one I choose to imitate
Oh, like the love of a father through the eye of a camera
It's this picture I have seen
We're on a sloping hill of green
And you are walking there beside me
but im too scared to start it
1. If Winter Ends: "I SCREAM for the sunlight"
2. Gold Mine Gutted: "Only smoke came out our mouths on all those hooded sweatshirt walks"
3. A New Arrangement: The cello bit
4. Poison Oak: Yellow Bird
But you will NEVER, SAVE YOUR SOUL!!!
AND THAT'S A FACT!!!
DON'T ANSWER THE PHHHHOOOOOOOOONNNNNNNNNNEEEEE...
the posters genuinely seem to think they're a) funny and b) people might be offended by them.
i'm hurt inside by everything.
this is why i listen to bright eyes.
think i was blind before i met you..
THAT is the greatest line evr...i just remembered
I swear I was born right there in the doorway
when he took to the stage VERY late at the Shepherds Bush Empire and pretty drunk only to fall over some loose cabling on stage...
hey, I laughed...
your trouble with livin', cos it's the ones with the sorest throats, who've done the most singing, EVERYBODY'
a good gig.
and he sounds like tom delonge when he says 'God'
..come for the week you can sleep in my bed and pass through my life like a dream through my head..
many more times before and after Desaparecidos
magbir means 'plugged it in' in the more colloquial/non-literal sense. probably suggesting he plays electric.
see, dylan plugging it in/going electric in 66, though this was a more literal as back then most acoustics were mic'd up whereas bright eyes is generally plugged in whether on acoustic or electric.
I'm fairly new here and I'd LOVE it if there was a FAVOURITE BRIGHT EYES SONGS thread - but I'm afraid to start one in case theres been loads of them already - so has there? can anyone link me if so, i want to invigorate it
but cant find it, may as well start a new one, people always appreciate a bright eyes thread.
that like both think that
...you say you'll be my dream i could have you every night, and by morning if i've forgotten well it's no big deal it'll be alright, cause you're the re-occuring kind, you never really leave my mind
i do love that song.
one of the very very best albums ever.
also for the overall thread
"i happy just because, i've found out i am really no one"
oh how very apposite right now.
Joy in Forgetting, Joy in Accepting
my favourite Bright Eyes song.
with the sound in the background of a televised war
when you're drinking by candlelight
I wondered why I couldn't work out what song it was.
"Oh definitely when he's almost sobbing on 'Love for You' and he's like 'I love you I love you I LOVVVVVVVVVVE YOU!'. Totally emotional."
anyone is taking him as seriously as you're suggesting.
i chuckled quite loudly when he sang the line "leave the cauliflower in the casserole today" on the weekend. both times! :)
but i absolutely love last few lines for Let's Not Shit Ourselves
"but where was i when i first heard that sweet sound of humility,
it came to my ears in the goddamn loveliest of melody,
how greatful i was then to be part of the mystery,
to love and to be loved,
let's just hope that is enough!"
he couldn't end an album better.
"I hang like a star, fucking GLOW in the DARK!" from Something Vague
The start of Pull My Hair. And the chorus.
When the strings come in at 3:40 in Don't Know When But A Day Is Gonna Come
also in Road to Joy after 'fuck it up, boys make some noise' when there's a beautiful cacophony of sound. :)
So there's this woman...
There's a statue of a girl...
