Song of the Week 41 (Pearl Jam – Sirens)

I got the new Pearl Jam album: Lightning Bolt last week. Click HERE for the review.

The whole album is brilliant.
This is one of the first songs that got my attention.  I got a feeling this too will be a “call” and anthem for many fans; old and new:

This song will move you. I am very certain. Give it a listen and then get back to me, deal?

Pearl Jam – Hear the Sirens

Hear the sirens
Hear the sirens

Hear the sirens
Hear the circus so profound
I hear the sirens
More and more in this here town

Let me catch my breath to breathe and reach across the bed
Just to know we’re safe, I am a grateful man
The slightest bit of light and I can see you clear

Have to take your hand, and feel your breath
For fear this someday will be over
I pull you close, so much to lose
Knowing that nothing lasts forever

I didn’t care, before you were here
I danced in laughter with the everafter
But all things change
Let this remain

Hear the sirens
Covering distance in the night
The sound echoing closer
Will they come for me next time?

For every choice mistake I’ve made
It’s not my plan
To send you in the arms of another man
And if you choose to stay I’ll wait I’ll understand

It’s a fragile thing
This life we lead
If I think too much I can get over
Whelmed by the grace
By which we live our lives
With death over our shoulders

Want you to know
That should I go
I always loved you
Held you high above, true

I study your face
The fear goes away

It’s a fragile thing
This life we lead
If I think too much I can get over
Whelmed by the grace
By which we live our lives
With death over our shoulders

Want you to know
That should I go
I always loved you
Held you high above, true

I study your face
The fear goes away
The fear goes away
The fear goes away
The fear goes away
