Two Weeks
Grizzly Bear Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

Save up all the days
A routine malaise
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay (oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh)

Would you always?
Maybe sometimes?
Make it easy?
Take your time

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

Think of all the ways
Momentary phase
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay

Every time you try
Quarter half a mile
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay (oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh)

Would you always?
Maybe sometimes?
Make it easy?
Take your time

Would you always?
Maybe sometimes?
Make it easy?
Take your time

Always, sometimes
Easy, time

Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh
Oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh

Overall Meaning

The song "Two Weeks" by Grizzly Bear is a love song that deals with the complexities of a relationship. The opening lines "Save up all the days, a routine malaise, just like yesterday, I told you I would stay" suggest that the relationship has lost its spark, and the singer is feeling stuck in a routine that is draining their energy. The repetition of "oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh" throughout the song creates a dreamy atmosphere and adds to the sense that the singer is stuck in a state of complacency.


The chorus acts as a plea to the partner, asking if they would always be there, or maybe sometimes make it easy and take their time. The lines "Think of all the ways, momentary phase, just like yesterday I told you I would stay" suggest that the relationship is going through a rough patch, but the singer is still willing to stick it out. The repetition of "oh-oh, oh-oh, oh-oh" conveys a sense of longing and uncertainty as to whether the partner will reciprocate their feelings.


The last part of the song repeats the chorus, asking if the partner will always be there, sometimes make it easy, and take their time. The repetition of these lines suggests that the singer is unsure of what they want from the relationship, but they know that they want their partner to be a constant presence in their life.


Overall, the song is an exploration of the complexities of relationships, and the challenges that come with trying to make a long-term commitment work. The dreamy, almost ethereal quality of the music adds to the sense of uncertainty and longing that pervades the lyrics.

Save up all the days, a routine malaise.
Just like yesterday, I told you I would stay.

Would you always, maybe sometimes
Make it easy, take your time

Think of all the ways, momentary phase
Just like yesterday, I told you I would stay.

Every time you try; quarter; half a mile.
Just like yesterday, I told you I would stay.

Would you always, maybe sometimes
Make it easy, take your time

Would you always, maybe sometime
Make it easy, take your time

Always;

Sometimes;

Easy;

Time
