“I don’t know where I am, I don’t know where I’ve been, but I know where I want to go.”
This Music Monday I wanted to take a step back from “moshy” music and post in appreciation of Bright Eyes.
I first started listening to Bright Eyes when I about 12 or 13 years old. Bright Eyes is not a band that I listen to often, but they’re a band I always seem to go back to.
Conor Oberst as a wordsmith has a way of playing on every one of your emotions and leaving you in an incredibly reflective state. This song popped into my head after my own self reflection, however.
While listening to this song you’ll probably realize it’s a love song. It’s an awesome love song.
Today I’m dedicating this love song to myself – because it’s never a bad time to show yourself some love.
Swear I was born right in the doorway
I went out in the rain, suddenly everything changed
They’re spreading blankets on the beach
I think I was blind before I met you
I don’t know where I am, I don’t know where I’ve been
But I know where I want to go
That these things take forever, I especially am slow
But I realized that need you
And I wondered if I could come home
Just to meet me in the morning
And I thought it was strange, you said everything changed
You felt as if you just woke up
“This is the first day of my life
I’m glad I didn’t die before I met you
But now I don’t care, I could go anywhere with you
And I’d probably be happy”
With these things there’s no telling
We just have to wait and see
But I’d rather be working for a paycheck
Than waiting to win the lottery
I mean, I really think you like me
