Yo La Tengo The story of Yo La Tengo Lyrics

Last updated: 08/24/2009 11:00:00 AM

We stared at the sun, too long
until the shapes before our eyes
turned into the sun, in our eyes
We lied to ourselves for awhile
in our usual style
We wish we could lie
To ourselves again

We made up our minds
to lose and never once looked back
We only looked back
just once
We opened our hearts, it's true
But not to any of you
We sold out of the myth
too soon

And we tried, we tried with all our might
We tore the playhouse down
We ran headlong in our way
yeah we tried so hard

We stared at the road ahead
We closed our eyes and then
sped off on the turn, around the bend
With nothing to lose, we lost
We suffered every cost
It still causes pain to recall

And we tried, yeah we tried with all our might
We tore the playhouse down
We ran headlong in our way
Yeah we tried so hard

And we tried, we tried with all our might
We tore the playhouse down
We, we ran headlong in our way
We tried so hard
And we tried, we tried with all our might
We tore the playhouse down
We, We ran headlong in our way
Yeah, we tried so hard

We refused to let go
of the air
Like there was something there
Spun strong and gold
spun gold into straw
We ran foreign lights
in a row
still flush from the glow
broke down on the road
broke down on the road back home
Then we stared at the sun, too long
until the shapes before our eyes turned back into the sun,
back into the sun, the sun in our eyes, yeah, yeah
And we lied back to ourselves for awhile
for now, now, now, now, in our usual style
Now we wish we could know ourselves again
And we tried, we tried, we tried with all our might
we tore the playhouse down
We ran headlong, we ran headlong in our way...
Yeah we tried so hard...
yeah we tried so hard...
yeah we tried so hard...
