The ghosts of Beverly Drive - Death Cab For Cutie


 
Ooit ontleende ik We have the facts and we're voting yes van Death Cab For Cutie uit de bibliotheek, wellicht vooral omwille van de intrigerende bandnaam. Wat ik hoorde, mag me dan wel bevallen zijn, ik raakte de band vrij snel weer uit het oog. Maar deze single toont aan dat Ben Gibbard (die ik ook ken van The Postal Service) en zijn kompanen nog steeds heerlijke indie maken.

Je kan het album Kintsugi hier kopen.

Lyrics:

If only you'd have known me before the accident
For with that grand collision came a grave consequence
Receptors overloaded, they burst and disconnect
'Til there was little feeling please work with what is left


Oh I need not be flattered that you've never been here before
So there's no need to mention that you've no firsts anymore
But if you let me be your skyline I'll let you be the wave
That reduces me to rubble that looked safe from far away


I don't know why, I don't know why
I return to the scenes of these crimes
Where the hedgerows slowly wind
Through the ghosts of Beverly Drive
I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know what I expect to find
Where all the news is second hand
And everything just goes on as planned


You wanna teach but not be taught
And I wanna sell but not be bought
So let us not be lonesome
So let us not be lonesome
Lost in between our needs and wants
Our needs and wants


I don't know why, I don't know why
I return to the scenes of these crimes
Where the hedgerows slowly wind
Through the ghosts of Beverly Drive
I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know what I expect to find
Where all the news is second hand
And everything just goes on as planned


I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know why, I don't know why
I don't know why, I don't know why
