I took a plane
I took a train
(Ah, who cares, you always end up in the city)

I said to Carl
Look up for once
(See just how the sun sets in the sky)

I said to Jon
Do you think the girls here
(Ever wonder how they got so pretty?)
Oh, well I do

Look out upon the Myriad Harbour
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour

All the boys
With their home-made microphones
(Have very interesting sounds)

All the girls falling to ruin
Dropping out of school, breaking daddy's heart
(Just to hang around)

I walked into the local record store
And asked for an American music anthology
It sounds fun
They tore up my sketches
Stuck them on the walls of PS1

I took a plane
I took a train
(Ah, who cares, you always end up in the city)

Stranded at Bleeker and Broadway
Looking for something to do

Someone somewhere asked me
Is there anything in particular I can help you with?
(All I ever want to help with was you)

Look out upon the Myriad Harbour
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour
Look out upon the Myriad Harbour

    General CommentDan Bejar. Yes, he does sound pretty feminine in this song. (but Kathryn?!)

    (from their website)
    "In this song, Dan urges me to 'look up for once and see just how the sun sets in the sky.' Two songs later, I sing that 'there is something unguided in the sky tonight.' Coincidence?"

    So he's talking to Carl in the second verse, could he be talking to John (Collins) in the third?

    Just a thought.

    General Commenthaha, ok, well, in my defense, it was quite clearly not carl and not neko, i've only heard kathryn's voice live before so i'm not really familiar with it...and he sounds REALLY girlish. i mean, i could tell some parts were dan bejar. whatever. im stupid.

    um, but, the song is still quite brilliant.

    General CommentI totally thought this was a girl singing... but on youtube all the clips are Bejar singing. I see them in Paris in two days so maybe all will be revealed then. YAY!
