Tallahassee
The Mountain Goats Lyrics


Window facing an ill-kept front yard
Plums on the tree heavy with nectar
Prayers to summon the destroying angel
Moon stuttering in the sky like film stuck in a projector
And you
You

Twin prop airplanes passing loudly overhead
Road to the airport two lanes clear
Half the whole town gone for the summer
Terrible silence coming down here
And you
You

There is no deadline
There is no schedule
There is no plan we can fall back on
The road this far can't be retraced
There is no punch line anybody can tack on
There are loose ends by the score
What did I come down here for?
You
You

Half the whole town gone for the summer
Probably the most Tallahassee line
(I forgot how many colleges are in this town. It doesnt feel like a small town, but on school breaks its oddly quiet)

The name of this song: Tallahassee, makes me think of the sleepy Southeastern town I grew up in.

This song hurts so much. Perfect JD/tMG mesh of melancholy melody and well placed, pain-inducing lyrics. This one has made me cry a few times, not gonna lie.
