Bright Eyes Black Comedy Lyrics

Last updated: 01/25/2008 10:00:00 AM

Well once I gave a look to you but you never gave it back
So here I stand expressionless but my memory's intact
I guess the past is good for a laugh
A comedy so dry and black
It makes my stomach hurt so bad, I cried
So two thumbs up we give this one despite it's predictable ending
Dialogue seemed rushed and wrong but the actors did their best
To lay some worth on every word
Like coffins dropped into the earth
The saddest sound I ever heard, we sang along
We sang it, take this weight away
We sang it, take this weight away
We sang it, take this weight away
Away
Away

My favorite Bright Eyes piece. Better than most of his other stuff because of the simplicity in lyric and song. The epic 8 minute ones make him good, but this song and others like it make him great.

"I guess the past is good for a laugh
A comedy so dry and black"

I love those lines. So true. Our awkward adolescent years especially at times feel worthy of being filmed and made into a coming of age indie film with all the mistakes and awkward social/relationship interactions that seem almost funny later on when you aren't quite so embarrassed of them. YUP.
