Bixby Canyon Bridge
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


I descended a dusty gravel ridge
Beneath the Bixby Canyon Bridge
Until I eventually arrived
At the place where your soul had died

Barefoot in the shallow creek,
I grabbed some stones from underneath
And waited for you to speak to me

And the silence; it became so very clear
That you had long ago disappeared
I cursed myself for being surprised
That this didn't play like it did in my mind

All the way from San Francisco
As I chased the end of your road
Cause I've still got miles to go

And I want to know my fate
If I keep up this way

And it's hard to want to stay awake
When everyone you need, they all seem to be asleep
And you wonder if you missed your dream

You can't see a dream
You can't see a dream
You just can't see a dream

And then it started getting dark
I truged back to where the car was parked
No closer to any kind of truth

So happy my dad introduced me to death cab.

Angelo Medau

One of my favorite songs by them! Brings me back to grade 7.

Caden Pope

One night while alone in my car I put this album on. I skipped straight to song 7 and listened all the way through. While I knew some songs connected I did not realize this whole album is a loop. This song, being the first on the album, functions just as well as the last. It concludes our human fears and preconditions about connecting to one another. When he says โ€œI want to know my fateโ€ the rest of the album becomes a sequel. Listen to this song last and that line becomes the origin of the prequel which will become this album

Ashley Miller

They do that with so many of their albums. Everything is just so well connected, in sound and lyric. Death Cab really creates art.

Many year later I miss my best mate oss... I hope you hear this brother. I followed you to that tree and I beat it with a pipe till it knew who it took from my life. 10 years plus and it still pains me.

Blaze Leibo

Sorry for your loss brother. Grief is weird, isn't it? They say it gets easier as time goes on, but for me, it only gets harder knowing I'm getting further and further away from the last time I seen/spoke to that person. Much love.

Retired Gold Farmer ESO

when everyone you meet all seem to be asleep......
