There’s things I know I should have mentioned sooner
But I didn’t know how
I’m sorry I lost you
I never thought that this could come between us
I know its water and bridges now
But what’s the sense in carrying around
This weight, these words are tearing me apart
"…alright, we’re gonna abort mission on that one."
Going For The Gold (aborted), Bright Eyes
Live at Showbox in Seattle, 2001
So I’m up at dawn
Putting on my shoes
I just want to make a clean escape
I’m leaving, but I don’t know where to
I know I’m leaving but I don’t know where to.
I said, “I’m leaving, but I don’t know where to”.
Are you who you say you are?
The fact that we can’t tell makes us like you even more
Southern State, Bright Eyes (feat. Britt Daniels)
Live at Austin City Limits Festival, 2003
I felt I was on fire with the things I could’ve told you. I just assumed you eventually would ask.
The end of paralysis
I was a statuette
Now I’m drunk as hell on a piano bench
And when I press the keys
it all gets reversed
The sound of loneliness makes me happier
Poison Oak, Bright Eyes
Live at The Waiting Room, Omaha, 2009
