blue beard lyrics – band of horses

“blue beard”

i used to see the night so anxious, but now i know
the only thing it ever taught me was a grand illusion
that comes and goes, the city blanketed of snow.

what if we die, no end and no conclusion.
how could you smile, just walk away.
well i don’t know.
i don’t know.

i met you at the railroad station, now years ago.
and something happened on the night i last drank with you in the neon glow.
now i don’t see you anymore.

the midwestern sky, is gray and cold.
the sun never shines, but that’s alright.
and i couldn’t find the letters that you wrote me.
what did you write? where’d you go, well i don’t know. no.

take a little time gonna roll the dice
taken for a ride, any normal life will do, too.
find another way, try to break the ice
every day and night, the banana peels were true (?). true.
