Half Asleep
School of Seven Bells Lyrics


Sometimes I go whole days
Listening bored, half sleep
I won't say anything
That's worth a thing to me
One day, suddenly, time
Took a turn that once felt so brief
I blinked to see polite ghosts fading quickly

What begins as an unguarded
Train of thoughts slowly can become
An addiction to the slumber
Of disconnection and the resonance
Of memory that no longer has a shape
But keeps you numb through
The hours till gone is another day

Be aware, my darling
These things I say I mean
Are just traces of something
I long to feel again
I see our time expand
In the air almost forcibly,
Spreading thinner till it dissolves completely

Lyrics

Sometimes I go whole days
listening bored, half asleep
I won't say anything

One day, suddenly, time
took a turn that once felt so brief
I blinked to see polite ghosts fading quickly

What begins as an unguarded
train of thought slowly can become
an addiction to the slumber
of disconnection and the resonance
of memory that no longer has a shape
but keeps you numb through
the hours till gone is another day

Be aware, my darling
these things I say I mean
are just traces of something
I long to feel again
I see our time expand
in the air almost forcibly,
spreading thinner till it dissolves completely

This is their most recognized track and it’s barely relevant in YouTube views. But that’s okay. Those of us who have recognized this greatness are the only ones who were meant to feel the way this makes us feel.

I appreciate so much that you've said this. So many emotions felt 💗

Quinn Lee

This, in my opinion, is the most representative, powerful and absorbing track of their entire music career. And the lyrics - gosh.

Jack Frost

facts, the writing is god tier 📝

while 'Half Asleep' is amazing, `Windstorm` - beautiful, it is 'I L U' the one that brings me almost to tears every time

Jan Banach

Fuckin beautiful!!

Gilbert Aguilar

Agreed, THIS is pretty great! My personal favorite of their career is from their previous band, On Air Library, and it's called Feb. (with the period at the end of Feb).

Boba Squid

"Show Me Love" is a masterpiece.

This song is just devastating with it's ethereal and fleeting beauty. A total embodiment of the band. I weep for the loss.
