You Go on Ahead
Sunset Rubdown Lyrics


You go on ahead, for awhile
I would like to follow you awhile
You go on ahead for awhile
I would like to just follow you awhile

And I'd like to watch the white flash of your heels
As they take turns breaking the desert heat
To beckon me in languages I've never learned

And I'd like to have you navigate two hills
Where no musicians live and on the way decide
What mendings of your will you're willing to forgive

And I'd like to think the actors never abandon
and I'd like to throw this trumpet down and go on empty handed
and I'd like to think I am not one of them but I know I am
So I'd like to just follow you awhile

You go on ahead for awhile
I would like to just follow you awhile
And you go on ahead for awhile
I would like to just follow you awhile

When me and the boys were out
We killed a thousand butterflies
So I put their wings into my mouth and
Said a prayer for our safe arrival
And then a big black car crossed our path
And I wondered whether or not that shit was empty

You go

See the sirens and the lizards lick their tongues behind the stage
See the actor keep their ritual to keep them all at bay
He would like to come home naked without war paint on his face
And appear before you, virgin white if virgin's are still chaste

So when you've got to wait
And you've got to wait (x4)
And you've got to wait for me

And I'll appear before you virgin white if virgin's are still chaste
Then I'd like to just follow you awhile

And if there are two eyes in my head
There are four season in a year
And reflections on the water of a burning yellow sphere
And the days add up to weeks, add up to months
And add up...

And if there are two eyes in my head
There are four season in a year
And reflections on the water of a burning yellow sphere
And the days add up to weeks, add up to months
And add up to years...

And if reflections on the water
Sometime look like burning tears
We can watch them changing shape
Without pushing off the pier

breaking the desert heat to beckon me in languages I've never learned
and I'd like to have you navigate two hills where no musicians live and
on the way decide what bendings of your will you're willing to forgive

and I'd like to think the actors never banded
and I'd like to throw this trumpet down and go on empty handed
and I'd like to think I am not one of them but I know I am
so I'd like to just follow you awhile

you go on ahead for awhile
I would like to just follow you awhile

when me and the boys were out
we killed a thousand butterflies
so I put their wings into my mouth and said a prayer for our safe arrival
and then a big black car crossed our path
and I wondered whether or not that shit(ship?) was empty
you go

see the sirens and the lizards lick their tongues behind the stage
see the actor keep a ritual to keep them all at bay
he would like to come home naked without war paint on his face
and appear before you, virgin white if virgin's are still chaste

Wolf Parade and Sunset Rubdown are my favorite bands. They're the type of band that just clicks with you, or it doesn't. All their songs make perfect sense to me, and I can relate to them. Even the sound-- it just reflects the likeness of my mind. If you know what I mean, it just sounds so right. I listen and I think, this is my band...

Yup❤️

QONZOR

I've always loved this band and always disliked Wolf Parade EXPLAIN THAT!!!

Travis Jones

So sick. One of my favorite songs of all time

Gilbert Aguilar

mim m - Thank You for these. I teared up in recognition and anticipation...

Dak's Entertainment Center

Respectively the best song on the album, in my opinion. The early acoustic version was sick.

Travis Jones

I agree. With Idiot Heart and Decemeber Song close behind

AxKP

There's a great 'Black cab sessions' acoustic version of it.

Matthew Snyder

That intro is what must have been playing when the world was created. So perfect.
