|Doug Does Lyrics|
Just a selection of some of my favourite lyrics...
|1||Something For Kate|
"Hottest night in twenty years / he is playing out a ceremony / watch him turn on the spot
to see his memory from a different angle / he eased the element of surprise to curve and sweep lines
/ and he is singing an old song / he is swimming with some beautiful sharks"
Song is basically a paradox, ignoring things that are bad about people because there is something
you are so caught up in.

Wake Up gets me every time: "Something filled up / My heart with nothing / Someone told me not to
cry / But now that I'm older / My heart's colder / And I can see that it's a lie"
|3||Band of Horses|
Everything All The Time
The Funeral is such an epic song: "I'm coming up only to show you down for I'm coming up only to
show you wrong / To the outside, the dead leaves, they all blow / Before they died had trees to
hang their hope"
Everything Is True
"Desire only burns and envy's always green / A mind can only race and a heart, it can only beat /
There's these towering neon signs we must uphold / To keep out the blackness and run with the
blue / Now only a fool would sing as if he's telling the truth / Could you swallow down
That lump in your throat? / Because everybody's in on the joke"
|5||Death Cab For Cutie|
"I need you so much closer / So c'mon"
...In Shallow Seas We Sail
"Is there a chance, just a chance that you need me? / Or are we better off thinking that in this dance the romance is a secret? / But I'm
not quite sure I believe it."
|7||August Burns Red|
"Wave goodbye to the past / You've got your whole life to lead"
|8|| ||The Gaslight Anthem |
The '59 Sound
"Not tonight / Hunny I, am on fire / If we don't go through, they gonna bury us alive / Into this great abyss
Of just what, might have been / Where we could take a seat at the bar with the other broken heros"
Acoustic At The Norfolk
"Somebody will take it / somebody will smoke it / we will eat tonight / Well its a hard life of living
when the poor man can never get ahead / And the rich man never pays his dues"
|10||The Cat Empire|
"If frisy hair was a metaphor for festival time / Then this woman is a goddess of that festival shrine / Met her - at a jam in that garden of sorts / I must
confess god bless some impure thoughts"
"This is my sense of reality / This is proof of my coming of age / This is truth in captivity / This is losing a theology / I, I'm a soul taker / I'm a cruel,
|12||Something For Kate|
The Official Fiction
"Standing on the great divide / Of some collission between ordinary and imaginary life / And this could be your lucky day / 'Cos if tomorrow ever comes /
looking, looking the other way"
The Sufferer and the Witness
"An obvious disinterest, a barely managed smile / A deep nod in agreement, a status quo exile / I shirk my obligations, I miss all your dead lines / I
excel at quitting
early, and fucking up my life"
|14||The Tallest Man On Earth|
The Wild Hunt
"Oh but rumor has it that I wasn't born / I just walked in one frosty morn / Into the vision of some
For Emma, Forever Ago
Obligatory Bon Iver: "There's a black crow sitting across from me; his wiry legs are crossed / And he's dangling my keys he even fakes a toss /
could it be / That has brought me to this loss?"
