Something Vague Lyrics - Bright Eyes
Review The Song (9)
Now and again it seems worse than it is,
But mostly the view is accurate.
You see your breath in the air as you'll climb up the stairs
To that coffin you call your apartment.
And you sink in your chair, brush the snow from your hair
And drink the cold away.
And you're not really sure what you're doing this for
But you need something to fill up the days.
A few more hours.
There's a dream in my brain that just won't go away.
It's been stuck there since it came a few nights ago
And I'm standing on a bridge in the town where I lived
As a kid with my mom and my brothers.
And then the bridge disappears and I'm standing on air
With nothing holding me.
And I hang like a star, fucking glow in the dark,
sponsored linksFor all those starving eyes to see,
Like the ones we've wished on.
But now I'm confused. Is this death really you?
And do these dreams have any meaning?
No. No, I think it's more like a ghost that's been following us both.
Something vague that we're not seeing,
Something more like a feeling.

Bright Eyes Mediocer? | Reviewer: guy | 12/9/09
when this song came out my brother got it for me as a present. Now im 13, and this cd is still in my room. At 12 i did some chores to get more albums. Something Vague describes everything and everything about everything. This song was the first song i learned to play on my guitar(acoustic). i even preformed it at a talent contest. Connor and bright eyes are true artists
mediocre? | Reviewer: angelique | 5/13/09
"It's a shame that anything else they did apart from the Fevers and Mirrors album is so mediocre. And live he sounds very average and a bad impersonation jeff buckley (not musically but the between song "banter")."
To the person who said this, while I must agree with you that Fevers and Mirrors is an incredible album, I would hardly call any of Conor[and Bright Eyes]'s work "mediocre". What about I'm Wide Awake, It's Morning? How about Every Day and Every Night? The boy is a genius. Also, I think he's a great live performer. The emotion he puts into his songs is incredible.
Oh, and sorry about the slight hostility in this comment! I didn't mean it. >.< You are, of course, entitled to your own opinions.

"It's a shame that anything else they did apart from the Fevers and Mirrors album is so mediocre"
that's a massive overstatement!!
I can understand if you don't like digital ash or casadaga because they're completely different sounds(which i both really love anyway), but how could you dismiss something like lifted??! it's the most amazing concept album in my cd collection anyway.

I am jealous of Connors lyrics, he takes writing to the next level...and the passion of his vocal...amazing...makes me happy....the smile of depression....the wake of the day....pushing me further than imaginable...well I guess I lost myself somewhere in this...but hey if you guys need some eye candy check out my poetry posted on my blog...not anything compared to Connor, but I'm proud of some of my stuff....myspace.com/prison_inside_one

is one of the most beautiful songs ever written. It's a shame that anything else they did apart from the Fevers and Mirrors album is so mediocre. And live he sounds very average and a bad impersonation jeff buckley (not musically but the between song "banter"). But he has done one brilliant, and relatively unknown, album that should be bought by anyone who has an appreciation for songs that are lyrically adept, musically simplistic and, ultimately, classics.
Work of ART | Reviewer: Avi | 3/3/05
This Song is amazing Conor's ability to write is truly impressive
i wish i wish i wish | Reviewer: Anonymous | 2/9/05

saying that this is the most amazing short writing i have ever read is not saying enough. i am in awe of what conor can create. this beauty is why i wake up every morning.
