Sleeping Ute
Grizzly Bear Lyrics


Dreamed a long day
Just wandering free
Though I'm far gone
You sleep nearer to me

If I could find peace
If this night bleeds
But I can't help myself

So I walk out
These wandering dreams
Of the north road
Dressed gold and green

If I could lie still
As that grey hill
But I can't help myself

But it's calm and it's clear
Collapsed here on the stone
Delivered to this place
A vision dark and cloaked

And those figures through the leaves
And that light through the smoke
And those countless empty days
Made me dizzy when I woke
And I live to see your face
And I hate to see you go
But I know no other way
Than straight on out the door

And I can't help myself
And I can't help myself
And I can't help myself

"Dreamed the long day just wandering free
Though I'm far gone you sleep nearer to me
If I could find peace
If this night leaves
But I can't help myself

So I'll walk out these wandering dreams
Up the north road dressed gold and green
If I could lie still as that great hill
But I can't help myself

Well it's calm and clear
Collapsed here on the stone
Delivered to this place
A vision dark and cloaked
And those figures through the leaves
And that light through the smoke
And those countless empty days made me dizzy when I woke
And I live to see your face
And I hate to see you go
But I know no other way than straight on out the door
And I can't help myself"

Took me 3 years, but I finally mastered this song. The finger picking at the end was enough to send me to the hospital

@Conceptual Conspiracy Yeah, why didn't he uploaded the guitar cover?

Probably worth it. Well done.

Zachary Wurzbach

Conceptual Conspiracy

post a cover video~

Yeah that guitar is incredible and it's the perfect complement to the organ's warbly arpeggios at 1:36. Really a perfectly crafted song.

Just amazing 🌈

I just think that poetry has to be evocative, and this lyrics together with the music fits in this concept.

Don't know why this is even in question...Grizzly bear has some of the most emotive singing and complex, unwinding song compositions I have heard. You can't say the warm texture of Daniel Rossen's voice doesn't conjure earthy emotional tones or the highs and lows of Ed Droste's melodies are lifeless. Such a great band with such true feeling in my opinion.
