Posthumous Forgiveness
Tame Impala Lyrics


Ever since I was a small boy
No one else compared to you, no way
I always thought heroes stayed close
Whenever troubled times arose

I didn't know
Ain't always how it goes

Every single word you told me
I believed without a question, always
To save all of us, you told us both to trust
But now I know you only saved yourself

Did you think I'd never know?
Never wise-up as I grow

And you could store an ocean in the holes
In any of the explanations that you gave
And while you still have time, you had a chance
But you decided to take all of your sorrys to the grave

Did you think I'd never know?
Never wise-up as I grow
Did you hope I'd never doubt?
Never one day work it out?

You were runnin' for cover
Doin' like any other
Fallin' out with a lover
You didn't know that I suffered
What a thing to discover
There was time to recover
One on one with each other
Just a boy and a father
What I'd give for another

Everything that I have
Wouldn't need this for long
Never speak of the time
That you left us alone
Me and Steve on our own
I wanna tell you 'bout the time
Wanna tell you 'bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
Learn the words, sing along

(This time) wanna tell you 'bout the time
(I was) I was in Abbey Road
(Or the) or the time that I had
(I had) Mick Jagger on the phone
I thought of you when we spoke
Wanna tell you 'bout the time
Wanna tell you 'bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
Hear your voice sing along

I wanna say it's alright
You're just a man after all
And I know you have demons
I got some of my own
Think you passed them along
Wanna tell you 'bout the time
Wanna tell you 'bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
And hear your voice sing along

[Part I]

Ever since I was a small boy
No one else compared to you, no way
I always thought heroes stay close
Whenever troubled times arose

I didn't know
Ain't always how it goes

Every single word you told me
I believed without a question, always
To save all of us, you told us both to trust
But now I know you only saved yourself

Did you think I'd never know?
Never wise up as I grow



And you could store an ocean in the holes
In any of the explanations that you gave
And while you still had time, you had a chance
But you decided to take all of your sorrys to the grave

Did you think I'd never know?
Never wise up as I grow
Did you hope I'd never doubt?
Never wonder, work it out?








[Part II]

You were runnin' for cover
Doin' like any other
Fallin' out with a lover
You didn't know that I'd suffer
What a thing to discover
There was time to recover
Move on with each other
Just a boy and a father
What I'd give for another

Everything that I have
Couldn't need this for long
Never speak of the time
That you left us alone
Me and Steve on our own
I wanna tell you 'bout the time
I wanna tell you 'bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
Learn the words, sing along



(This time) Wanna tell you 'bout the time
(I know) I was in Abbey Road
Or the time that I had
Mick Jagger on the phone
I thought of you when we spoke
Wanna tell you 'bout the time
Wanna tell you 'bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
Hear your voice sing along
I wanna say it's all right
You're just a man after all
And I know you have demons
I got some of my own
Think you passed them along
Wanna tell you 'bout the time
Wanna tell you 'bout my life
Wanna play you all my songs
And hear your voice sing along

The lyrics that get me are:
"There was time to recover
One on one with each other
Just a boy and a father
What I'd give for another"


When he says what he'd give for another, does he mean what he'd give for another time to hang out with his dad? Or does he mean what he'd give for another dad? Because,
I can relate to thinking about both; more time with my dad/mom and how it would be to be with a dad/mom who would appreciate me.

This song is sad. I read the lyrics today. I had no idea I would relate to it the way I have. It's not hitting me yet. But, if I really dwell on it, I, too, will be crying. Kevin is a genius.

​@genesis espinoza You copypasted shit, and stated a dozen wrong things;
either you're curious, or you'll stay wrong.
beleive in what you will, the 240hours of Mozart music that was both on 7, 12 and 33' vinyl, radio and even today on spotify looks at you and laugh. noobdy ever cut down 30mins pieces to 2;48 I mean come on man, are you serious ? vynil can write much more than that, it just loose quality over lenght.

Music =/= Pop Music.

I'll just explain it like you're some 7yo so that maybe the time i wasted in this train talking to your dumb ass will not be in vain, because you're too stupid to see the whole picture : Science indeed points to "POP" music averaging 3mins.
"Progressive rock" averages 6:24
"Trance" averages 8:00
"Classical" averages 11:00
etc...
YOU GET IT NOW ?

SirZebra Jeez, people online.

The average song was about 3 minutes. (2:48 to be precise) The reason for this was that was the maximum length they could fit on one side of the old 7 single vinyl records. Although technology of music has changed drastically, the practice has continued, tacks are in fact getting longer these days though, averaging between 3 to 4 minutes.

The old vinyls LP’s were limited to 20 minutes per side, so the maximum length of an album had to be <40 minutes.

The average song length was about 150 seconds - 200 seconds from 1950 to 1980. That’s about 2:30 - 3:20 minutes per song. It would be easy to say that as new technologies have been developed that allow for longer music, the length of songs has increased. But the length of songs had its biggest jump, according to data, between 1980 - 1990, average song length being about 200 - 250 seconds, that’s around 3 to 4 minutes, 4:10 minutos, to be exact. And very little has changed since then.


fun fact: they average out at around 250 to 280 words per song today. the beatles average was around 120 to 150 words per song (and no, i’m not comparing the beatles to anyone, like i said, just a fun fact)

My dad died a couple months ago, we didn't have a good relationship so i didn't really mourn.
I finally cried when i heard the second half of this song. Appreciate it, Kevin.
