Bon Iver Lyrics


"Someway, baby, it's part of me, apart from me"
You're laying waste to Halloween
You fucked it friend, it's on its head, it struck the street
You're in Milwaukee, off your feet

And at once, I knew I was not magnificent
Strayed above the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
But I could see for miles, miles, miles

3rd and Lake, it burnt away, the hallway
Was where we learned to celebrate
Automatic bought the years you'd talk for me
That night you played me Lip Parade
Not the needle, nor the thread, the lost decree
Saying nothing, that's enough for me

And at once, I knew I was not magnificent
Hulled far from the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
But I could see for miles, miles, miles

Christmas night, it clutched the light, the hallow bright
Above my brother, I and tangled spines
We smoked the screen to make it what it was to be
Now to know it in my memory

And at once, I knew I was not magnificent
High above the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
But I could see for miles, miles, miles

Lyrics

[Verse 1]
"Someway, baby, it's part of me, apart from me"
You're laying waste to Halloween
You fucked it, friend, it's on its head, it struck the street
You're in Milwaukee, off your feet

[Pre-Chorus]
And at once, I knew
I was not magnificent

[Chorus]
Strayed above the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
I could see for miles, miles, miles

[Verse 2]
Third and Lake, it burnt away, the hallway
Was where we learned to celebrate
Automatic bought the years you'd talk for me
That night you played me "Lip Parade"
Not the needle, nor the thread, the lost decree
Saying nothing, that's enough for me

[Pre-Chorus]
And at once, I knew
I was not magnificent

[Chorus]
Hulled far from the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
I could see for miles, miles, miles

[Verse 3]
Christmas night, it clutched the light, the hallow bright
Above my brother, I, and tangled spines
We smoked the screen to make it what it was to be
Now, to know it in my memory

[Pre-Chorus]
And at once, I knew
I was not magnificent

[Chorus]
High above the highway aisle
Jagged vacance, thick with ice
I could see for miles, miles, miles

Lyric:
Someway, baby, it's part of me, apart from me
You're laying waste to Halloween
You fucked it friend, it's on its head, it struck the street
You're in Milwaukee, off your feet
And at once I knew I was not magnificent
Strayed above the highway aisle
(Jagged vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles
3rd and Lake it burnt away, the hallway
Was where we learned to celebrate
Automatic bought the years you'd talk for me
That night you played me 'Lip Parade'
Not the needle, nor the thread, the lost decree
Saying nothing, that's enough for me
And at once I knew I was not magnificent
Hulled far from the highway aisle
(Jagged vacance, thick with ice)
I could see for miles, miles, miles…

The moral of this song and story really for anyone who is wondering. Justin Vernon, the singer, was on a bridge with his brother on Christmas Night. He was feeling really down that day, but as he stared across the empty highways ‘for miles, miles, miles’ at roads ‘thick with ice’, he realised in that moment it’s ok to feel this way. He realised ‘at once he was not magnificent’ as he gazed up at the huge starry sky and a landscape similar to the huge vast ones of the ancient Holocene, but at the same time as he said in an interview about the song, he may have realised then that he isn’t a main character on the grand scheme of things, but he’s still ‘special, yet not special’. Jesus this song is just so beautiful, and it’s something we need to all realise. We can’t all be main characters, but you are your own main character and you are to someone else as they are to you. We all have our own little corner of this Holocene, we are all unique and special. It’s easy to feel insignificant as Vernon did, but when he took in the beauty of those surroundings, he came to realise he was lucky to just witness it all with his brother beside him, and how rare it is really just to exist, and that shouldn’t be taken for granted by seeing yourself as insignificant.

Yeah ok. When you figure out that your wife is fake and a whore, dad is dead , brother just died, mom is old and jacked, and your brother is a drunk jack off that’s in another dimension, you won’t be having all of these feel good feelings. Trust me dude.

I am walking the Camino Santiago in 2024 and this song will be in my rotation the whole time. It just seems to fit.

My friend, who died of breast cancer, loved Bon Iver. I don't listen to Bon Iver, but this popped up in my feed this morning. I'm thinking about you too, Diane. RIP.
