I Could Always Try To Reach You

I downloaded the new The Sounds album last night, and have been listening to it on repeat tonight while sewing.




My current favorite. It makes me think of Steffani and Amy. The entire album does, actually. I miss my loves.


Let us go back to the time when the underground
Was the place where we all used to hide away
Let us go back to the streets where it all begun
How could I know, it was the last time I saw you?

Seventeen and believed in just anything
Could be true, could be bad, something in between
I recall all those lazy summer nights
And all I knew was the time I spent with you

[Chorus]
I could easily stay, and never come home
Looking out on the field like it's never been changed
The past is a place that you can never return to
Even though people say that this is where you belong
I could easily stay, and never come home
Looking out on the field like it's never been changed
The past is a place that you can never return to
Even though people say that this is where you belong

I could always try to reach you
And it's pumping through my veins
And there's nothing I can do about it
(though people say that this is where you belong)

Let us go back to the time when the underground
It used to be our place it belonged to us
And I'd go back if I could but it's not the same
And now I know, it was the last time I saw you?

[Chorus]

I could always try to reach you
And it's pumping through my veins
And there's nothing I can do about it

I could always try to reach you
And it's pumping through my veins
And there's nothing I can do about it

I could easily stay, and never come home
Looking out on the field like it's never been changed
The past is a place that you can never return to
Even though people say that this is where you belong

I could always try to reach you
And it's pumping through my veins
And there's nothing I can do about it

anyways, speaking of lyrics, do you like the lyrics of 'we've been had' by the walkmen? i always thought it was an underrated-beautiful. i never get tired of that song :D *loves*

I think it's on Forever 21's website? I don't remember where I saw that though. Probably on the Forever 21 website :P

I hadn't read the lyrics to that until just now, but I'll have to download the song when I get home tonight. They read beautifully!

Oh, yes, it is Forever 21.
I think I just love reflective songs. And when I hear that one, it makes me want to sit by a railroad and watch trains. Could be the distortion.
And I had saw a comment you wrote on the stranger website, so I became interested in your blog :]

As sad as it is- now that I don't drive and I usually read on the bus- I almost never listen to music anymore, and haven't had any new favorite songs in what feels like FOREVER. It's by far the longest I've gone without listening to something almost non-stop, and it's very strange.

I was wondering how you'd found me! Which post was it? I'm glad you commented- I really love your blog!

Wow. Maybe you are having a musical block? I don't think i've had any favorite songs that are 'new' lately myself, i've been getting into older stuff from 60's bands.
I don't remember, I think you had answered someone's question in the Questionland forum. And now I feel like a schmuck for being forgetful. Thank you. I should post more entries. I admire the insight on your blog as well :] Are you going to the Strawberry Festival on Vashon Island?
