Some Things Last a Long Time
Beach House Lyrics


Your picture
Is still
On my wall
On my wall

The colors
Are bright
Bright
As ever

Red is strong
Blue is true

Some things last a long time
Some things last a long time

Your picture 
Is still 
On my wall 
On my wall 
The colors are bright 
Bright as ever 
The red is strong 
The blue is true 
Some things last a long time 
Some things last a long time

Your picture 
Is still 
On my wall 
On my wall 
I think 
About you 
Often 
Often 
I can't forget all the things we did 
Some things last a long time 
Some things last a long time

It's funny 
But it's true 
And it's true 
But it's not funny 
Time comes and goes 
All the while 
I still think of you 
Some things last a long time

Your picture 
Is still 
On my wall 
On my wall 
The colors 
Are bright 
Bright 
As ever 
Things that we did 
All we forget 
Some things last a life time 
Some things last a life time

I love Daniel Johnston and Beach House...when this cd came out I was pleasantly surprised by how good they did with it. If you are a Daniel Johnston fan, you should respect such a great cover as this...considering not a lot of people cover him very well.

Dan might be the hardest artist to cover.

I had just turned 18 years old I was with my high school girlfriend on Coney Island when they play this at sirens festival ( 2008) it was like a scene from a movie and it’s one of my fondest memories

Russell Carstens

I live for those moments. Treasure them, my friend and fellow BH fan.

Wow that sounds so ethereal

If you think Beach House's cover lacks feeling, think about it in a different light (whoa, a cover). Perhaps it is meant to evoke different feelings reflected only in the first verse... a steady and swollen, lasting pain and the beauty in letting it be. Johnston's evokes more of agonizing and enveloping depression that quietly eats away at the soul. I love both versions.

William Parker

Agreed on "the beauty in letting it be" .

Gabriel Albuquerque

Amo muito!

Sam

My favorite version. I was in love with the original for years, but something about this version is just so raw.

Jeff H
