"10 Mile Stereo" as written by and Alex Kristian Scally Victoria Garance Alixe Legrand....
The heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw
Put your hand on this stone, it's the stone of a home you know
They say we will go far, but they don't know how far we'll go
With our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon

They say we can throw far but they don't know how far we throw
With our legs on the edge, and our feet on the horizon
The heart is a stone, and this is a stone that we throw
They say we will go far, but they don't know how far we'll go

It can't be gone, we're still right here
It took so long, can't say we heard it all
Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell
Tear a moment from the days that carry us on forever

This push and pull is the force of a wave of time
In the heat of the night, we would cry, you are not mine
They said we would go far, but they don't know how far we'd go
'cause this heart is a stone, and this is a stone that we throw

It can't be gone, we're still right here
It took so long, can't say we saw it all
Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell
Tear a moment from the days that carry us on forever

It can't be gone, we're still right here
It took so long, can't say we felt it all
Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell
Love's like a pantheon, it carries on forever

    Lyric Correctionlyrics from the song book (omg buy the album):

    the heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw
    put your hand on this stone it's the stone of a home you'll know
    they say we will go far but they don't know how far we'll go
    with our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon

    they say we can throw far but they don't know how far we throw
    with our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon
    the heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw
    they say we will go far but they don't know how far we'll go

    it can't be gone
    we're still right here
    it took so long
    can't say we heard it all
    limbs parallel
    we stood so long we fell
    tear a moment from the days
    that carry us on forever

    this push and pull is the force of a wave of time
    in the heat of a night, we would cry, you are not mine
    they said we would go far but they didn't know how far we'd go
    cause this heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw

    it can't be gone
    we're still right here
    it took so long
    can't say we saw it all
    limbs parallel
    we stood so long we fell
    bright pyramids at night
    that carry us on forever

    it can't be gone
    we're still right here
    it took so long
    can't say we felt it all
    limbs parallel
    we stood so long we fell
    love's like a pantheon
    it carries on forever



    the only variations from the top are "bright pyramids" was missed, and the book has "didn't" instead of "don't" although admittedly it sounds like she sings "don't" while didn't fits with the tense.

    General CommentI read this comment on the Youtube video: "I feel like it's about the bittersweet end of a crazy unbelievable relationship that has to end." And I couldn't agree more.

    General CommentIn my opinion this is about a love that arose out of an unexpected or forbidden relationship. It is about falling in love with someone when possibly married or dating another person who is abusive or not right for them.

    The heart is a stone and it is a stone that we throw,
    (The heart has become hardened as it has been hurt very much perhaps by life or by being in abusive relationships, and it has been thrown at someone who seemed very far away)
    They saw we can throw far but they don't know how far we throw
    With our legs on the edge
    (This relationship has seemed to never be able to exist, and it is on the edge of becoming what could never be.)
    And our feet on the horizon
    (Hoping and knowing that it can be more.)
    It took so long, can't say we heard it all
    (It seemed to take long for the relationship to finally be, and in a sense not hearing what would happen from each other, or other people, maybe a current boyfriend or husband? that is no longer in the picture)
    Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell.
    (They were close, yet far. And knew each other for what seemed a long time that they couldn't be together. And as time went on they fell in love)
    It can't be gone, we're still right here
    (The relationship, may not be how they imagined or dreamed when they weren't together- but their desires have lasted so many years- that they know they love each other and stay together.)
    I took so long, can't say we felt it all
    (It took long to be together, and they may not have allowed their full feelings for each other to show because they weren't supposed to love each other)
    Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell.
    Love's like a pantheon it carries on forever.
    (Their love is not how they imagined or dreamed it would be when they weren't together- but they know they are in love and will always be.)



    It can't be gone we're still right here
    (The relationship finally exists, and it isn't exactly how they imagined it to be.

    General CommentI created an account just to say that this song is great. I hope future generations will listen to this and see my comment and go, "man, that guy was feeling this song." I enjoy laying in my bed on a cold Winter morning as this plays. I promptly cry myself back to sleep and wake up and listen to it again. This song is fucking great and I want to buy a new car.

    General CommentYour comment cracked me up, in fact, I'm still laughing. First, sleep is a human necessity, so if your nickname 'somnambulant' is just an irony don't worry, but if not, you have the right to sleep at this moment (unless you are driving a car).

    Second, I'm too afraid of this song atm to put int in words. But indeed I'm NOT AFRAID of my strong feelings for that person, which remain somehow intact. I believe I'm afraid of this song atm because there's some sense of destruction and suffering which comes with it which is terrifying. I can only think of the frightening tale of the Pied Piper of Hamelin...

    I feel cold and empty. Love shouldn't bring death or destruction to our lives. I feel really bad today, exhausted and full of guilt and sorrow tbh.

    The mood of what I feel today is more that of the songs 'Out of Time' by Blur or 'Wish I Was Here' by Cat Power and Chris Martin.

    I also want to say sorry if my vanity on commenting this song offended anyone or you. I really feel somehow like a bitch.

    General CommentThe lyrics to this one are often hard to make out, you did a good job.

    However, I'm pretty sure it's not "this is a stone BED we throw" but "this is a stone THAT we throw."

    I think some of the (?) can be partly filled in with "...is the force of a wave of time..." "...in the heat of the night we will..." "bright pyramids at night, they carry us on forever..." Those are the bits of lyrics I think I can make out. Like I said, it's sort of hard to tell sometimes with Beach House.

    General Commenti took a stab at it.. still needs work though...

    The heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw
    Put your hand on the stone
    It's the stone of a home you know
    They say we will go far, but they don't know how far we'll go
    With our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon
    They say we can throw far but they don't know how far we throw
    With our legs on the edge, and our feet on the horizon
    The heart is a stone, and this is a stone that we throw
    They say we will go far, but they don't know how far we'll go

    It can't be gone, it's still right here
    It took so long, can't say we heard it all
    Wings parallel, we stood so long we fell
    'Till warm and calmer days (?)
    They'll carry us on forever

    This blue shade moon is the force of a wave of time (tide?)
    In the heat of the night we would cry you are not mine
    They say we go far but they don't know how far we go
    'cause this heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw

    It can't be gone, we're still right here
    It took so long, can't say we saw it all
    Wings parallel, we stood so long we fell
    Bright pyramids at night
    they carry us on forever

    It can't be gone, We're still right here
    It took so long, can't say we felt it all
    Wings Parallel, we stood so long we fell
    Looks like a path beyond
    it carries on forever

    General Commentmy absolute favorite song on the album.

    "The heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw
    Put your hand on this stone, it's the stone of a home you know
    They say we will go far, but they don't know how far we'll go
    With our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon"
