Everlong
Foo Fighters Lyrics


Hello
I've waited here for you
Everlong

Tonight, I throw myself into
And out of the red
Out of her head, she sang

Come down and waste away with me
Down with me
Slow, how you wanted it to be
I'm over my head
Out of her head, she sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you

If everything could ever be this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

Breathe out
So I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now
I know you've always been
Out of your head
Out of my head, I sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you

If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

And I wonder

If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when

Verse 1]
Hello, I've waited here for you
Everlong
Tonight, I throw myself into
And out of the red
Out of her head, she sang

[Verse 2]
Come down, and waste away with me
Down with me
Slow, how you wanted it to be
I'm over my head
Out of her head, she sang

[Pre-Chorus]
And I wonder
When I sing along with you

[Chorus]
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

[Verse 3]
Breathe out, so I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now I know you've always been
Out of your head, out of my head I sang

[Pre-Chorus]
And I wonder
When I sing along with you

[Chorus]
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when
She sang

[Instrumental Break with whispering voices]

[Pre-Chorus]
And I wonder

[Chorus]
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when

Hello
I've waited here for you
Everlong
Tonight
I throw myself into
And out of the red
Out of her head she sang

Come down
And waste away with me
Down with me
Slow how
You wanted it to be
I'm over my head
Out of her head she sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang

Breathe out
So I can breathe you in
Hold you in
And now
I know you've always been
Out of your head
Out of my head I sang

And I wonder
When I sing along with you
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You gotta promise not to stop when I say when she sang

[Whisper:]
So, Dad would take the Sundays off.
And that's the only time he could ever get any rest.
And so, because we were loud on Sundays, he'd make us hold his construction boots over our head, 'til we'd sleep.
And they were really heavy boots and I used to say, "Dad, come on, please."
And like start crying, 'cause they're too heavy.

And I wonder
If everything could ever feel this real forever
If anything could ever be this good again
The only thing I'll ever ask of you
You've got to promise not to stop when I say when

@sue m German Expressionism!!!! NOW YOU"RE TALKING DIRTY TO ME (LOL!!)!!!!! I love German Expressionism and have gotten to teach about it a lot over the last 20 years! There are MANY, MANY, options.

Otherside is GREAT with that great GE set design and wardrobe!!! LOVE ITI It's a VERY pure rendering of German Expressionism! I love that kind of devotion to film history in production! We all stand on the shoulders of the giants who came before us!!

I also like Michael Jackson/Janet Jackson's music video "Scream". Mark Romanek's interpretation of German Expressionism in sci-fi has always intrigued me! We have the traditional anti-realist elements of GE along with its nightmarish/demented psychological imagery. Notice how OPPOSITES (or contrasting imagery) is used in the video--not just the restriction to only black, white, and gray values, but the very fact that Michael is male and Janet is female (opposites). In the sequence where Janet is using the remote control to view the different art designs, notice how Jackson Pollack's "Number 32" painting is an example of abstract impressionism and it is juxtaposed with Andy Warhol's self portrait. We have ABSTRACT ART right next to POP ART---OPPOSITES, as per the design principles of German Expressionism! Romanek does the same with the sculpture of Athena (representing War and Western religion/mythology) and the sculpture of the Buddha (representing peace and Eastern religion). Of course we see the design elements of jagged edges of broken glass and the star guitars in the video. Both Janet and Michael could be confined to what is called a "space-bound insane asylum" (nailing the deep, twisted psychological principles of GE).

Oh, and Janet's music video Rhythm Nation is more or less a love letter to Fritz Lang's Metropolis (a seminal German Expressionist sci-fi film).

I could go on and on....and I generally do in my classes!! LOL!! But if the students need more examples of German Expressionism, I show them pretty much any of the early videos of Marilyn Mansion (like The Beautiful People). By that point, even the slacker sleeping in the last row gets German Expressionism!!! Thanks for the question!! I enjoyed geeking out and answering it!!!!
