It started off as an ending
I'll never see her sad eyes again
Silently meeting them on the concourse
Tears promised never to forget

Remember that city, shining like jewelry
Changing beneath us on our way back home
Where the painting hangs in the living room
I am still there holding my hands
And I'll never get used to it
I'll never be what I want
Hard as I try, I wont be anywhere

Glory in the highest
Voices are praising
Tongues are dividing
Buildings explode and fall down like children
Stand up and reach for a table's leg
So far from here listening inside your head
Clouds are spitting dust
With each lesson you're learning
That you won't find truth here, but you're still driving
There is no other way you could have gone
Could have gone, could have gone

I'll never be where you are
I love you more than this heart could ever show
But you won't remember anything
Remind you of me
Sleep in the quiet place where you can be alone
Anything you want from me
I love you more than this heart could ever show
And you will never get used to it
Because you won't remember anything that happened
And you won't be anywhere

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. Very melancholy and lovely nonetheless. Perfect for a rainy day.

    General CommentJoe Knapp has a wonderful voice. This band should be as well known as other indie-pop bands like Wilco and The Shins. Son, Ambulance is just as good IMO.
