lyrics

I dowloaded some sabbath, like we had imagined;
(just like we had imagined)
nothing too new or familiar, nothing ronnie james dio,
nothing too bloody, or dark, or removed.
you pulled up in a Charger; i’d just made my first record,
i was smoking but trying to quit (again),
You said Montreal was on fire, that we needed to vacate,
you shook the keys and I jumped in
(and I quit after that, and I quit til you died,
and I couldn’t hold on anymore).
There's things i can't remember, i admit i gloss over,
I admit that I fill in the gaps,
the Jays would lose until august but I’m glad that you saw them
(I’m glad that I saw you),
the 401 runs until Windsor, where the world ends and I’m new,
where I could never forget you
(I’d been running away from just about everything
i was childish and angry and small)
but there was nothing so endless as the sky over Toronto
in the middle of that summer.

Just like we always imagined it

“You won’t change me” comes on and we run out of gas
and maybe those songs never meant what we wanted them to
maybe the words are simplistic and the context is wrong
we still gotta get out and walk before it really gets dark
But now the sunset’s forgiving and I’d want you to know
I feel better than ever but I still don’t feel right
but somedays i don't feel like i'm stretching,
and you know i never stopped pushing,
(you know i’ll never stop pushing),
but if i remember you silent, like that night on the highway,
back when everything mattered
It's cuz I figured it out like we always imagined,
like we always imagined I would

about

Give Me Something Beautiful Montréal, Québec

GIVE ME SOMETHING BEAUTIFUL makes and releases records entirely by themselves because there is simply nothing else to do in a world where the sky is owned by other people and even their mildest whims are stolen and sold back to them; they do it because nothing else makes sense and because at least then there is somewhere they can go, when everywhere else has become a psychological warzone. ... more
