June On The West Coast Lyrics - Bright Eyes

Review The Song (5)

I spent a week drinking the sunlight of winnetka, california
Where they understand the weight of human hearts
You see sorrow gets too heavy and joy it tends to hold you
With the fear that it eventually departs.
And the truth is I've been dreaming of some tired, tranquil place
Where the weather won't get trapped inside my bones
And if all the years of searching find one sympathetic face
Then its there I will plant these seeds and make my home
I spent a day dreaming of dying in mesa, arizona
Where all the green of life had turned to ash
And I felt I was on fire, with the things I could have told you
I just assumed that you eventually would ask
And I wouldn't have to bring up my so badly broken heart
And all those months I just wanted to sleep
And though spring, it did come slowly, I guess it did its part
My heart has thawed and continues to beat
I visited my brother on the outskirts of olympia
Where the forest and the water become one
And we talked about our childhood, like a dream we were convinced of, that
Perfect peaceful street where we came from
And I know he heard me strumming all those sad and simple chords
As I sat inside my room so long ago
And it hurts that he's still shaking from those secrets that were told by a
Car closed up too tight and a heart turned cold
And I went to san diego
The birthplace of the summer
And watched the ocean dance under the moon
And there was a girl I knew there, one more potential lover
I guess that something's got to happen soon
Because I know I can't keep living in this dead or dying dream
And as I walked along the beach and drank with her
I thought about my true love, the one I really need
With eyes that burn so bright, they make me pure
They make me pure
They make me pure
I long to be with you [x2]

he has a way of trapping his feelings in words. it's like you can actually feel what he was feeling at the moment he wrote the song. it's overwhelming, really.

for me, this song is about trying to find a place to settle down and make a life while reminiscing upon failed attempts in different cities. it also tells a story of a battle with depression (as many of his songs are, especially in letting off the happiness) and how when he is happy, it is dampered by the thought that the sadness will return, and an internal battle of telling someone and seeking help. his brother is still shocked by the secrets that were told which i assume was about his depression and suicidal thoughts (like in no lies, just love).

amazing song.

And I felt I was on fire, with the things I could have told you
I just assumed that you eventually would ask
And I wouldn't have to bring up my so badly broken heart
And all those months I just wanted to sleep

This is how I felt so many times in my life, I almost started crying when I first heard this.

bwhahaa | Reviewer: lucy | 12/10/09

naomi, i get what your saying! i thought the same thing! that it sounds like a juno soundtrack. like moldy peaches or something! ahhaahaha

anyway, i have heard everyone talking about this song, so i listened to it and was like OMFG of course, cuz its bright eyes, it has to be wonderful. its different, but great!!!

what??? | Reviewer: naomi | 11/16/09

this song was on the radio?!?!

to have any bright eyes song on the radio is amazing, but to have one of his very unknown ones...well that's a miracle.

kay i love this song, its quite different from others he's done but i still like it.
A bit Juno actually.

Amazing. As always. | Reviewer: Aly | 10/12/08

So, it's 2:40 AM, and I've been listening to Conor all night. When this song came on...oh god. I can't explain the feeling I get when it comes on. This song is one of his best. Definitely. Bright Eyes makes my world go round. <3
