Loose Leaves Lyrics - Bright Eyes

Review The Song (3)

There are stories in the soil, loose leaves cover the ground
There's volumes in the forest, no one reads out loud
If I could take them down off of that mountain shelf
We used to climb but no one tries to go up that far now yeah

We're all too busy working, entertaining ourselves
Forty hours television and prescription pills
Well I take two a day to make my brain behave
It never does but who's to say at least my doctor gets paid

So that's fine, yeah come by we'll take the afternoon off
We can kiss and undress or if you want just talk
Cause I've got nothing real, just empty space to fill
And you're my girl I like your style just imagine all the time we could kill

And time's not poison but once you drink it all you'll die
So let's just sip it real slow
Yeah we can nurse it all night
Try to believe that once it's gone
We'll pour another round and come back to life
Come right back

I guess I'm moving faster now or that's what they said
And though some days still take forever I can't disagree
Because it seems to me that I wake up and sleep
Look in the mirror have no idea what happened in between

But I remember counting days down 'til the year could be done
So I could scatter all my notebooks on the prep school lawn
And disappear again into a summer's bliss
Of staying out sleeping in and getting drunk with my friends

That's gone and I know that it won't ever come back
I accept I won't cling to what I had in the past
But life's a slippery slope, regret's the steepest hill
Hope for the best, plan for the worst and maybe wind up somewhere
In the middle

And I'm not saying that I know what I want
But I know what I don't, don't want to rot in my room
And never know what could have been
Believe what everyone else tells me is true
Yeah, they say 'true'
That's what they say

i deff dont think this song is about stuff like that id say this is a song about remeber how good your past is not how bad it was and its about learning and growing from the exprience u might consdier bad

Wow. | Reviewer: Kels | 1/12/11

Um..wow. That's quite the review of your life. I don't believe song is about wasting your life with drugs and whatnot. To me it seems like in this song he's just reminiscing about his past. It seems more along the lines about how things change so much once you start to grow up. But that's just my take on this song. I admire Conor quite a bit. He is so talented to say the least. Ah Conor, thanks for being such a nerd. <3

Well I think that this song is a shinning example of a person that u suppose could be considered a friend of mine. Considerig I have about 3 friends in that world, none of which I an comfortable confiding in about anything. But anyway, yes she is about as worthless as any one. A waste of breath, space, and time to quote yet another of Conor Obersts masterpieces. Spending her days getting high, drunk, and pregnant at what's in my opinion and unreasonably young age (15). She is quite, well stupid I suppose. But no dumber than any other of the people that you see sitting around a lunch room in a high school. All pointless, thoughtless, mindless idiots who shit away their days as if there is nothing more to do than escape their terrible reality. And I agree that realty can be rather terrible and often times I want to escape it using bleache or a knife but I suck it up and go to sleep and hope no one bitches and calls me lazy because that is my way of not altering my precious organ, the one that I think gives you actual life, my brain. While still getting out of this world. And many times I wonder why I spend my long ass days waiting for unconsiousness and hating all the people in the world because they are like they are in this song. I dong know why I do. I think about that alot too and I don't know. I Deserve a he'll of a lot better than this miserable planet. I could own this world if I wanted. I just don't want to. I could have everything that everyone on the earth wants and either struggles for or sits and watches it pass by. I can and will had it when ever I want with no effort. When ever I want! I just don't want it cus it's stupid. What am I talking about? What do you want in life over all? Well that's it becasue you all basically want he same thing and I have it and cab earn it myself with no effort and don't want it. Only when you feel that you are strangley superior to everyone else and that yu can't explain it to them or anyone or yourself even you just know uou are ,only then do you know what I am talking about but it is realy irrelevent and if you wasted your time reading this then sorry you have nothing better to do but I wasted mine writing knowing it's probably too long and they won't publish it but oh well were equally pathetic in all those eyes in the heads of the true morons so go ahead think me pathetic. In a way I do too but I also know i'm better than you and all other humans but am vastly inferor to all animal species. So oh well.
