Your Past Life as a Blast
Okkervil River Lyrics


Your life, back in a banner year.
A blast of light.
A brace of cheers.
A house of wild accolades
Evaporating on an August night
I'm looking out into the sound.
I'm breathing deep.
I'm turning around.

Do ya, do ya
Wanta swim out to that island?
I'm thinking,
Touch my wrist
It's shaking just like someday
Baby when we're older.
Cash will be inside our kisses, someday,
Maybe, baby when I'm gold.
Your hair is thin and light
As a white forest fire in summertime.
Your throat, where it's exposed, looks like a crime,
I'll sneak-up slow and whisper quiet.

Your pretty face looks like an island
Rising from a sea that's slowly drying.
When I'm saying,
"Da you, do ya want to sail out in the silence?"
I'm asking,
"Will ya, will ya come over here and do me violence?"
Press your ear up to my wrist,
The blood is racing some way, going wherever,

And I'm saying,
"Will ya, will ya stand up tall and be my shelter?"

How will we go, what do you think?
Into the dust? Into the drink?
You slipped your fears into my head,
Some midnight freeway ride along with Jennifer.
Hotels, jails, hospital details.
The highway hugs the water.
I had to cross a field of screaming fire
To see the moonlight on the river.

I'm saying,
"Do ya, do ya want to come and make me shiver?"
I'm thinking,
Squeeze my arm and feel it pull away like someday,
Baby, when we differ.

I'll tell you what I didn't say.
I'll tell you about the way I really miss him.
You tell them what you want to tell them.
Tell them about the way you really loved her.

Shake it, shake it,
Shake it off, and take another,
Because no one, no one
Is going to stop me
From loving
My brother,
'Cause no one, no one
Is going to stop me
From loving
My brother
No one, no one
Is going to stop me
From loving
My brother
No one, no one
Is going to stop me
From loving
My brother,
Not even my brother.

Your life, back in a banner year
A blast of light, a brace of cheers
A house of wild accolades
Evaporating on an August night

I'm looking out into the sound
I'm breathing deep, I'm turning 'round

(I'm saying,)
"Do ya, do ya want to swim out to that island?"
(I'm thinking,)
Touch my wrist. It's shaking just like someday
baby when we're older.
(I'm wishing:)
Cash will be inside our kisses, someday,
maybe, baby when I'm gold.

Your hair is thin and light
As a white forest fire in summertime
Your throat, where it's exposed
Looks like a crime
I'll sneak-up slow and whisper quiet

Your pretty face looks like an island
Rising from a sea that's slowly drying
(When I'm saying,)
"Do ya, do ya want to sail out in the silence?"
(I'm asking,)
"Will ya, will ya come over here and do me violence?"

Press your ear up to my wrist
the blood is racing some way, going wherever,
(I'm saying,)
"Will ya, will ya stand up tall and be my shelter?"

How will we go? What do you think?
Into the dust? Into the drink?
You slipped your fears into my head
Some midnight freeway ride along with Jennifer

Hotels, jails, hospital details
The highway hugs the water
I had to cross a field of seething fire
To see the moonlight on the river

(I'm saying,)
"Do ya, do ya want to come and make me shiver?"
(I'm thinking,)
Squeeze my arm and feel it pull away like someday,
baby, when we differ.

I'll tell you what I didn't say
I'll tell you about the way I really miss him
You tell them what you want to tell them.
Tell them 'bout the way you really loved her

Shake it, shake it, shake it off
And take another
'Cause no one, no one is going to stop me
From loving my brother
'Cause no one, no one is going to stop me
From loving my brother
No one, no one is going to stop me
From loving my brother
No one, no one is going to stop me
From loving my brother
No one, no one is going to stop me
From loving my brother

Not even my brother

@JWCollection the song didn't click in my head at first as I was watching. It was familiar but all the holy shit stuff going down kept me from recognizing it. Man, it's been awhile since I listened to this song. Also, fuck, that was a great hour of television.

iZombie brought me here ! I must say, this song really has something special, I love it !

MidKnightGeek

iZombie lead me here as well. A surprise show with a great cast, script as well as a great choice of music, as shown here with this this song.

The song is wonderful on its own, but with the video it becomes one of the most touching tributes to life and love that I've seen in recent memory.

Not sure who the people in the home movies were but they sure enjoyed and loved their kids. And the kids certainly look to have lived life to the fullest.

Thank you for the glimpse into that happy place of memories past!
