quietest friend

Postby sean.david.smith » Wed Aug 29, 2018 6:05 am

my attempt at the lyrics

verse one:
well staving off rejection has always hurt like hell
i took the devils bargain made a stranger of myself
if anything was wrong i couldnt tell
so i didnt see you coming but now its pretty clear
i traded my own wisdom for a jury of my peers
i ignored you for thirty years

chorus:
you dont have to tell me
how hard it mustve been
for you to let me in
nothing lasts forever
now i understand
i heard you again
my quietest friend

verse two:
the sacred and the monsoon they were forever telling jokes
they were making you the punchline of some random thing i wrote
they were looking for me to land the final fall
just then the ____ went straight up to my head
i thought the joke too stupid for it no matter what i said
i was alone but i wasnt alone with it

chorus:
you dont have to tell me
how hard it mustve been
for you to let me in
nothing lasts forever
now i understand
i heard you again
my quietest friend

verse three:
we could write this song - remind them
i memorized them
i could sing them to myself
or whoevers listening
i could put them on a record
about my hometown
sitting here with pen and paper
im mixing them now

the final show of the tour [08.24 chicago] is on youtube - talked to bob and he said that originally bazan was only going to play quietest friend in indy but ended up playing it every night for the rest of the tour so they are cool with the show being posted since 'the cat is out of the bag' - enjoy!
