Song of the week 58 (Taking Back Sunday – We were younger then)

This song of the week, I guess is a dedication to my very good friend, Nick.
He has been here in SA for a few days from the UK.
It really was so awesome to spend time with him.
We spoke about this band, Taking Back Sunday and how we liked this song:

I like how the song builds up.
I like the backing and echo filled vocals.
These lyrics grabbed my attention:

“I remember when comfort wasn’t an option”
“I see cranes on the horizon…”

Tell me what you think?

Taking Back Sunday – We Were Younger Then”

Arab Architects
Are strung up by their necks
Singing
Hallelujah, hallelujah
Blessed be the lord
And now I’m drifting through the streets
Drinking gypsy wine saying
I can’t believe how strange it is to be alive right now

I see the good people trying
I remember when comfort was not an option
(But we were younger then)
Disciplined and strange
Focused and restrained
We were younger then

If you need some quiet time
To process all that guilt
Well the desert lasts for days and out there
There’s nothing else to do
Round here they turn ocean into land
And sell that land for gold
Use that gold to build themselves bigger better homes

I see cranes on the horizon
I remember when comfort was not an option
(We were younger then)
Disciplined and strange
Focused and restrained
We were younger then

When I go to sleep
I hardly ever dream
And when I’m wide awake
I can’t believe what I see

I see the good people trying
I remember when comfort was not an option
(We were younger then)
Disciplined and strange
Focused and restrained
We were younger then

When I go to sleep
I hardly ever dream
When I’m wide awake
I can’t believe what I see

Only in pictures before have I seen
Anything like from where I am standing
Looking I can’t tell where the city stops
And the nothing begins
Only in pictures before have I seen
Anything like from where I am standing
Looking I can’t tell where the city stops
And the nothing begins, begins, begins
(And the nothing begins)

Only in pictures before have I seen
Anything like from where I am standing
Looking I can’t tell where the city stops
And the nothing begins, begins, begins
(We were younger then)
Only in pictures before have I seen
(We were younger then)
Anything like from where I am standing
(We were younger then)
Looking I can’t tell where the city stops
(We were younger then)
And the nothing begins, begins
(We were younger then)
