Factory Lyrics – Band of Horses

The elevator, in the hotel lobby has a lazy door
The man inside is going to a hotel room
He jumped out right after seeing just the very sight of me
Decided he better hike it to the second floor

Its temporary, this place I'm in
I permanently wont do this again
My belongings scattered across the hotel floor

Now then later, I was thinking it over by the snack machine
I thought about you and a candy bar
The Now and Laters, now that I've got, stuck between my teeth
I fell asleep to the greatest movie of the year

A man gets lonely, for heavens sake
He's wondering only what did you do today
The worlds spinning around into an old, sad song

Well it's coming down outside like Ive never even seen before
I fell into some kind of sorry state
But looking back now, I think it's time for me to laugh about it
And get my things together and find something to say

Well I feel awful, and I believe
That time gets wasted in this misery
And darling, I never wanna come back home

Compliments Lyrics – Band of Horses

I'm fixing a drink in the morning
With a wavy tongue
You may have stayed too long

You're splitting apart at the seams
From the hospital call
You've known him so long

If there's a God up in the air
Someone looking over everyone
At least you got something to fall back on

Deep in the heart of the country
Was a house I built from logs
A raven and a lady hawk

Quiet and calm through the day
See the sun burn through the fog
Approaching was a yellow dog

If there's a God up in the air
Someone looking over everyone
At least you got something to fall back on
And what are people really for?
Does any body even care?
I'll bet you get a lot of compliments down there

If there's a God up in the air
Someone looking over everyone
At least you got something to fall back on
And do you got something to say?
Isn't something coming over you?
Do you got important things still left to do?

Laredo Lyrics – Band of Horses

Gonna take a trip to Laredo
Gonna take a dip in the lake
Oh, I'm at a crossroads with myself
I don't got no one else

And possibilities at the door
I won't be needing them anymore
Oh, is this the first time in your life?
It's hard just to get by

But oh, my love, don't you even know?
And oh, my love, are you really gone?
Ooooh

And can you see the world through a window?
Are you having troubles in droves?
Oh, I think the worst thing I could do
Is get back home to you

I put a bullet in my Kia Lorenzo
A kitchen knife fucked in my face
Throw me in the deep of Jenner Lake
Believe me when I say

That oh, my love, you don't even call
And oh, my love, is that you on the phone?
Ooooh

...

And oh, my love, you don't even know
That oh, my love, are you really gone?
Ooooh

Blue Beard Lyrics – Band of Horses

I used to see the night so anxious, but now I know
The only thing it ever taught me was a grand illusion
That comes and goes, the city blanketed of snow.

What if we die, no end and no conclusion.
How could you smile, just walk away.
Well I don't know.
I don't know.

I met you at the railroad station, now years ago.
And something happened on the night I last drank with you in the neon glow.
Now I don't see you anymore.

The Midwestern sky, is gray and cold.
The sun never shines, but that's alright.
And I couldn't find the letters that you wrote me.
What did you write? Where'd you go, well I don't know. No.

Take a little time gonna roll the dice
Taken for a ride, any normal life will do, too.
Find another way, try to break the ice
Every day and night, the banana peels were true (?). True.

On My Way Back Home Lyrics – Band of Horses

On my way back home, by chance I thought of
All my favorite songs, where I'd gone wrong
The only words that I could think of
I'm pissing my life away in the form of a song
On my way back home

Every step, a victory it was
I was cheating death, just in time I woke
My memories start to wander off
Come to me, the remembrance of
On my way back home

I came in this way and here now I'll stay
If the unknown have to wait one more day
There's often times that it comes out wrong
But luckily I, I got a mind to know
On my way back home

Infinite Arms Lyrics – Band of Horses

I had a dream
I had a dream
That I was your neighbor
About to give birth
And then everything
Was really hurt
And I was so lonely
I didn't see It's like
Living in a movie
Twisting the plot
My friends and family
The little things I've got, I've got

When my thoughts drift to you

I love the morning
I like to listen
To 4am birdies
Begging to feed
Now there's something here before me
A figure, I think
Isn't there a warning
Or something to drink
My god, my god

When my thoughts drift to you

These mended bones
The storms approach
Ever so slowly
Out on the sea
There's an animal below me
Lack of control
Others came before me
Others to come, to come

When my thoughts drift to you

Dilly Lyrics – Band of Horses

Just the mentioning of (Just the mention of)
such a simple phrase.
Are we passengers on (seperated trains)
separated trains?
Take the mask off (Take the mask of)
when you speak to me.
And I'm alright to go on (It's the little things)
it's the little things.

But anymore, you've become.
A ? to everyone.
To everyone.

I'm reeling in the wrong day getting behind ?
Why didn't i think "what in the world?"
It really took a tall one to see it
Two to believe it
Three to just get in the way

All your life to think of (All your life think of),
what a mess you made.
Dig a hole in the ground (for your wedding ring)
for your wedding ring.
Rainmaker call (the Rainmaker call)
throw your hammer down.
And everything that I know (Can't remember now)
can't remember now.

Anymore, you've become.
Inherent of another one.
Another one.

I reeling in the wrong days, getting behind
Why didn't I think "what in the world?"
It really took a tall one to see it
Two to believe it.
Three to just get in the way.

Evening Kitchen Lyrics – Band of Horses

(oooo oooo oooo)

Drive out with the sun in your eyes
You wasted my time
It's true, it's true

My god, don't you hold out your hand
I called off my plans
I counted on you, on you

And if you're ever left with any doubt
What you live with and what you'll do without
I'm only sorry that it took so long to figure out

(oooo oooo oooo)

Got lost in the places I've been
I should go out with my friends
I'd go tonight but I know you'll be there too, there too

For me, this bottle of wine
Is to slow down my mind
And forget the things that I knew, I knew

And if you're ever left with any doubt
What you live with and what you'll do without
I'm only sorry that it took so long to figure out

(oooo oooo oooo)

Older Lyrics – Band of Horses

Climb the cliff, Tower over all
And falling water, falling waterfall

And after all my plans
They melt into the sand
Yeah you will be there on my mind through all
Don't want to understand why you never get older

It's time to dry off tattered overalls
Impatient waiting, Way to hide a fall

And after all my plans
They melt into the sand
Yeah you will be there on my mind through all
Don't want to understand why you never get older

And after all my plans
They melt into the sand
Yeah you will be there on my mind through all
Don't want to understand why you never get older

After all my plans
They melt into the sand
Yeah you will be there on my mind through all
Don't want to understand why you never get older

And after all my plans
They melt into the sand
Yeah you will be there on my mind through all
Don't want to understand why you never get older

For Annabelle Lyrics – Band of Horses

If I want to walk home with you
Hearing every word, thinking it's true
In a barren field for us to cut through
On our victory lap 'cross an old street cat

That turns to stop and see you
A small stone somewhere in your shoe
All day long
All day long
Long

The old folks wake up for the day
Seeing the monsters have lingered from the past
And a great bird is flying away
From our family tree; something wrong with me

I've got a secret or two
Hiding somewhere but
It won't take long
No it won't take long
Long

NW Apt. Lyrics – Band of Horses

Northwest apartment, apartment
I'm driving over in Oakridge baby with the whole neighborhood in tow
Somebody trapped in the underground basement just a few blocks down the road
Northwest apartment, apartment

With three guitars and one amplifier I'm gonna blow the dust off this scene
Everybody in population are gonna find out what I mean
Northwest apartment, apartment
When all the parts equal more than the sum
And the sum equals none

This thing was built in a day knowing that the Romans took longer than that
We brought a bass player a cold old soul and he's a first class welcome mat
Well cleaned apartment! Apartment

In the morning I walk up I'm ready for the night time to begin
And what's that over there on my pillow someone sleeping in my bed
Northwest apartment, apartment

When all the parts equal more than the sum
And the sum equals none
Yeah, well

Neighbor Lyrics – Band of Horses

The wind blew a path through the fallen leaves
And there showed a crack in the old oak tree
The door stood as if it was standing guard
Of the dozen chipmunks in the backyard

Every house not a home but dare do I roam
There's a light on the porch here for someone

Once upon a time in a border town
The war was over, the guns laid down
The women, the men, the children saved
Now it's hard to remember it any other way

When the law acts as though there is nothing to show
There is compassion and depth in a neighbor

Now if Bartles & Jaymes didn't need no first names
We could live by our own laws in favor

Every house not a home but dare do I roam
There's a light on the porch here for someone

Now if Bartles & Jaymes didn't need no first names
We could live by our own laws in favor

Is There A Ghost Lyrics – Band of Horses

I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?

I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?
When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?
My house...

I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?
When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?
My house...

I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
I could sleep
When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?
When I lived alone
Is there a ghost in my house?
My house...

Ode To LRC Lyrics – Band of Horses

In the lobby of the LRC
Well I knew I'd find something
A hundred stroies sittin there to read
I got my focals out I put 'em on

And all is calm, all is calm

Theres a doggie coming here to eat now
Which dated back to 1993
I don't care what the people say 'cause
That dog he don't come around here anymore

No, no the dog is gone, the dog is gone
No, no the dog is gone, the dog is gone

The town is so small
How could anybody not
Look you in the eyes
Or wave as you drive by

The world is such a wonderful place
The world is such a wonderful...

I see everyone before me, there was birthday sex and sleep
Some weren't getting along
Nobody's outside trying to murder
Nobody's outside, there's no one really at all

What the hell i saw, the hell i saw
The hell i saw, the hell i saw

The town is so small
How could anybody not
Look me in the eyes
Or wave as I drive by

The world is such a wonderful place
The world is such a wonderful place
The world is such a wonderful place
The world is such a wonderful place
La di da, La di da, La di da, La di da

No One's Gonna Love You Lyrics – Band of Horses

It's looking like a limb torn off
Or altogether just taken apart
We're reeling through an endless fall
We are the ever-living ghost of what once was

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do
No one's gonna love you more than I do

And anything to make you smile
It is my better side of you to admire
But they should never take so long
Just to be over then back to another one

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do
No one's gonna love you more than I do

But someone,
They could have warned you
When things start splitting at the seams and now
The whole thing's tumbling down
Things start splitting at the seams and now
If things start splitting at the seams and now,
It's tumbling down
Hard.

Anything to make you smile
You are the ever-living ghost of what once was
I never want to hear you say
That you'd be better off
Or you liked it that way

But no one is ever gonna love you more than I do
No one's gonna love you more than I do

But someone
They should have warned you
When things start splitting at the seams and now
The whole thing's tumbling down
Things start splitting at the seams and now
If things start splitting at the seams and now,
It's tumbling down
Hard

Detlef Schrempf Lyrics – Band of Horses

And take a little walk when the worst is to come
When I saw you looking like I never thought
And say you're at a loss or forgot that words can do more than harm

The town is gonna talk, but these people do not
See things through to the very minimal
But what's it gonna cost to be gone?
If we see you like I hoped we never would

When eyes can't look at you any other way,
Any other way, any other way
When eyes can't look at you any other way,
Any other way, any other way

So take it as a song or a lesson to learn
And sometime soon be better than you were
If you say you're gonna go, then be careful
And watch how you treat every living soul

My eyes can't look at you any other way,
Any other way, any other way
When eyes can't look at you any other way,
Any other way, any other way

The General Specific Lyrics – Band of Horses

If your trials end, are really getting you down
We had a close call, I didn't even see it, then another one, I hardly believed it at all.
What the writers say, it means shit to me now.
Plants and animals, we're on a bender when it's 80 degrees, the end of December was coming on,
Only for you and me.
When the showing up ends, going back to the south, where hungry necks that I know, and runnin'
A blender in a lightning storm, disguised as a blessing I'm sure.
Knowing up here, there comes a fork in the road, pants have gotta go, we're on an island on
The fourth of July, looks like the tide is going home.
In time I'd find a little way to your heart, down to the general store for nothing specific,
Gonna wash my bones in the Atlantic shore - only for you and me

Islands On The Coast Lyrics – Band of Horses

Here's a copy,
The rest that you know,
And put the kind words to bed.

For man don't say why,
Or even know how,
It's only awful as
The hell that you know.

When islands want to coast,
Islands want to coast,
They'll know how,
Yeah, they'll know how.

And only hours before
The house had burned down,
He shut the other door.

But if i don't see now,
Or even know why,
It's only awful
As the hell that you know.

When islands want to coast,
Islands want to coast,
They'll know how,
Yeah, they'll know how.

Home [x4]

He was riding in
The next thing you know,
Let's take the other door.

Now if i don't think right,
Or even know how,
It's only awful
As the hell that you know.

When islands want to coast,
Islands want to coast,
They'll know how,
Yeah, they'll know how.

Home [x4]

Marry Song Lyrics – Band of Horses

I'll marry my lover in a place to admire
I don't have to even ask her I can look in her eyes
And thank God that I am forgiven
I thank all my friends
To say I've been truer or they forgotten

Marry my mind is to say the least
Its been awful hard to just stand on my feet
I think I'll slow down if I am able
I won't drown in the ocean
For starving my place at the table

Lucky ones are we all 'til it is over
Everyone near and far
When you smile the sun it peaks through the clouds
Never die for always be around and around and around

How is your sister and what of your brother
Extend hellos to your father and mother
What in the world would cause you any sorrow
Like tea in your loaf
And see how I killed the wheelbarrow I borrowed

Lucky ones are we all til it is over
Everyone near and far
When you smile the sun it peaks through the clouds
Never die for always be around and around and around

Cigarettes, Wedding Bands Lyrics – Band of Horses

Working man's day wage, just piss it away
Leaves it out in the weather

Failure, he said, times two breeds contempt
Wash your hands of it forever

Violence it ripped through the old dogwood fence
See the hope, see it unravel

Drunk brother said he could reason with them
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied

The picture was left on the front porch, the back said
"I love you, don't you ever think of me?"

If my body goes, then to hell with my soul
We don't even know the difference

The dead folks in the clouds, for crying out loud
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied

And why, did we live so long
So long
So long

[bridge]

The house is not the same since we left it that day
Old friends seem to wonder
Our parents had cigarettes, wedding bands
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied

And why, did we live so long
So long
So long

[bridge]

While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
While they lied at night, they lied at night, while they lied
Oh....

Window Blues Lyrics – Band of Horses

Erase the facts
The shit was flyin' outta the window
I painted blue
I paint the whole room

When its time to get in trouble
We know just what to do

The screen door swayin'
Now baby gimme something to live for
I been a fool
I been a fool

No revelations in the water
No tears into the booze

In pains the floor
The worried people shaking the whole house
I i take it back
I take it all back

The regret thats got us sayin'
The hounds upon the tracks

And always in time
I'm never looking over my shoulder
I sing to you
I sing it to you

Keeping heads above the water and
Feet into the shoes

The First Song Lyrics - Band of Horses

I'm shaking awful...
I'm shaking, asshole
And where's the remote?
Its gonna fall off.

The snowing in cover,
Do you recover from those?

And christmas time coming
And over approaching
We've been drinking, pardon.

As christmas time goes
I'm coming over
Coming from
Youre already gone

I'm wrapping up
The presents
I bought

(pretty guitar)

An overcoat
Will take me anywhere
O,
We've suffered enough.

Its scary
To me,
And their leaving from earth.
Cutting us off
Knowing that
One
Calling on
Total
Way.
Do i know anyone
No
I dont know

Anyone

Wicked Gil Lyrics - Band of Horses

Hate Gil really now
Hate you because
Go tippy toe
Shut off to the world
Shut off to all, you ghost

Early told a lie
Afraid to be blind
Now go for a while
Shut off the world
Shut off to all
I'm yours
I'm yours

Helping evil people to say things they show
Said once before
I know evil people who say things
They don't know, oh

Begged Gil really why
Stay through the night
I'm here for a while
Shut off to the world
Shut off to all
I'm yours
I'm yours

Helping evil people to say things they show
Said once before
I know evil people who say things
They don't know,
Oh why do I even care
It's nothing now, oh

Our Swords Lyrics - Band of Horses

Out on the wall sounds of banging is constant coming from your head
And desperate the calls came and ringing from those wanna wring your neck
Wring your neck

Open your mouth sounds of breathing found it spilling from your face
Best to be dim to the humble of traffic stepping on your name

Count on us all falling our own swords tonight

And chilling walk home down the portions roads there leading straight to your place
And look like the tin can with swallows the kitchen plugging up your space

Count on us all stepping on our own toes tonight
Count on us all stepping on our own toes
Count on us all follow our own swords tonight

The Funeral Lyrics – Band of Horses

I'm coming up only to hold you under
I'm coming up only to show you wrong
And to know you is hard; we wonder
To know you all wrong; we warn.

Really too late to call,
So we wait for morning to wake you
That's all we got
And to know me as hardly golden
Is to know me all wrong, they warn.

At every occasion, I'll be ready for the funeral
At every occasion, once more, is called the funeral
Every occasion, know I'm ready for the funeral
At every occasion, oh, one million day funeral

I'm coming up only to show you down,
For I'm coming up only to show you wrong.

To the outside: the dead leaves, they're on the lawn
For they don't have trees to hang their own.

Part One Lyrics – Band of Horses

The bottom the earth i have to fall
But you really caught me
You really caught me, dear
At the bottom where i'd fallen.

And slowly dear ask that you dance with me
Here with the shades down
Lights off

When i didn't know you
And everything i do
Done badly

Now i'll love you always
Even when i say
You distract me.

And sit out tonight in some strange place
If we have no friends here
Well i had a few to begin with

To wake next to you in the morning
And good morning to you.
How do you do?
Hey, good morning to you!
More covers for you.
Sleep soundly dear cause i have to go.

And i'll love you always.
When we leave this place
And drive back to carolina
And down to savannah and say

The Great Salt Lake Lyrics – Band of Horses

Back of the boat was painted wrecking ball
There was country music playing but he don't like it all
And red fire poppin' on the rained-down woody
There was whiskey bottle spilling and a lake it was made of salt

Well look out back there was a note on the door it saying,
"Everybody listen we will be the next Omaha"

Well if you find yourself falling apart
Well I am sure I could steer
The great salt lake
Falling apart
Well I am sure I could steer
The great salt lake

Your old man was but a wishing machine
It's time that you could spin
Now that he is getting old
When Billy Lorett had found a watering hole
It's a place to lay south or the heads of coyote

Now if you find yourself falling apart
Well I am sure I could steer
The great salt lake

Follow me home
We want more
Follow me home
We all want more
If ever beat down
We know who we are
They know who we are
If ever beat down
We know who we are
They all know we want more

Weed Party Lyrics – Band of Horses

I got you arrested because
Are you come or gone
I am about to set this off
The party is done
The wine is there to keep yourself
You got it wrong
So I brought you plenty thoughts
Words were at a loss
It's a good day to skip because
The party is gonna call
The wine there t keep yourself
But don't you ever listen at all
The parents are enforcing the law
The wine is there to keep yourself
But don't you ever listen at all
The parents are enforcing the law

I Go To The Barn Because I Like The Lyrics – Band of Horses

Well i'd like to think i'm the mess you'd wear with pride.
Like some empty dress on the bed you've layed out for tonight.
Maybe i'll tell you sometime.

Time.sometime.

And you were right.

Right.

You were right
Outside by your doorstep
In a worn out suit and tie
I'll wait
For you to come down
Where you'll find me
Where we'll shine

Oh

Monsters Lyrics – Band of Horses

A tree for all these problems
They can find you for the moment
Then for all past efforts
There buried deep beneath
Your heart and somewhere in your stomach

And hey, transform all others
When aweful people they surround you
Well hey, they just like monsters
They come to feed on me
Giant little animals to feed

Though to say we got much hope
If i am lost it's only for a little while

A tree for all these problems
They can find us for the moment
Then for all past efforts
There buried deep beneath
Our hearts and somewhere in our stomachs

And hey, transform all others
When aweful people they surround you
Well hey, they just like monsters
They come to feed on us
Giant little animals for us

Though to say we got much hope
If i am lost it's only for a little while

Though to say we got much hope
If i am lost it's only for a little while
If i am lost it's only for a little while
If i am lost it's only for a little while

St. Augustine lyrics - band of horses

Silver scents of saint augustine
Fire in the ground
Between my better teeth
We're dancing on the poison in their graves
At the end of the night
We'd all seen better days

I know you tried
I know you're cursed
I know your best was still your worst
When hollywood was calling out your name

If i stayed behind
Would you let your hair grow?
I will forget
The favors that you owe
I'm dreaming of car wrecks and thunderstorms bright
Let's bury ourselves
And go haunt someone tonight

I know you tried
I know you're cursed
I know your best was still your worst
When hollywood was calling out your name

Saint augustine
