Kettering
The Antlers Lyrics


I wish that I had known
In that first minute we met
The unpayable debt that I owed you

'Cause you'd been abused
By the bone that refused you
And you hired me To make up for that

Walking in that room
When you had tubes in your arms
Those singing morphine alarms
Out of tune

They had you sleeping and eating
And I didn't believe them
When they called you a hurricane thunderclap

When I was checking vitals
I suggested a smile
You didn't talk for a while
You were freezing

You said you hated my tone
It made you feel so alone
So you told me
I ought to be leaving

But something kept me standing
By that hospital bed
I should have quit but instead
I took care of you

You made me sleep and uneven
And I didn't believe them
When they told me that there Was no saving you

Lyrics

I wish that I had known in that first minute we met
The unpayable debt that I owed you
Because you'd been abused by the bone that refused you
And you hired me to make up for that
Walking in that room when you had tubes in your arms
Those singing morphine alarms out of tune kept you sleeping and even
And I didn't believe them when they called you a hurricane thunderclap

When I was checking vitals I suggested a smile
You didn't talk for a while, you were freezing
You said you hated my tone, it made you feel so alone
And so you told me I ought to be leaving
But something kept me standing by that hospital bed
I should have quit, but instead I took care of you
You made me sleep and uneven
And I didn't believe them when they told me that there was no saving you



Tenda Tea

When I was 10, my mother lost the use of her kidneys and was put on peritoneal dialysis.
I did everything I could to help her, and as I got older it only became more obvious that things where not going to get better.
By the time I was 22, she was blind and immobile; but I always talked to her about everything. Even the smallest, dumbest things, just so I could see her reaction, or maybe crack a smile.
But when she died, I couldn't even bring myself to cry at her funeral. I told my family that I wanted to honor her memory by being strong, but honestly, I was just tired of crying.

A few years later, I saw this song on my YouTube suggestions.

It fucking broke me.

So many feelings I couldn't express either to my family or myself was suddenly thrown in my face.

I didn't realize how much I needed the rain

This is the only song from this band on my play list, but it will always hold a special place for me.
God bless you "The Antlers", you guys helped me more than anyone outside this comment section will ever know

I wish that I had known in that first minute we met, the unpayable debt that I owed you. 
'Cause you'd been abused by that bone that refused you, and you hired me to make up for that. 

Walking in that room when you had tubes in your arms, those singing morphine alarms out of tune.
They kept you sleeping and even, and I didn't believe them when they called you a hurricane thunderclap.

When I was checking vitals I suggested a smile. You didn't talk for awhile, you were freezing. 
You said you hated my tone, it made you feel so alone, and so you told me I ought to be leaving. 

But something kept me standing by that hospital bed, I should have quit but instead I took care of you. 
You made me sleep all uneven, and I didn't believe them when they told me that there was no saving you.

I wish that I had known in
That first minute we met
The unpayable debt
That I owed you

Because you'd been abused
By the bone that refused you
And you hired me
To make up for that

Walking in that room
when you had tubes in your arms,
those singing morphine alarms
out of tune

They had you sleeping and eating
And I didn't believe them
When they called you
A hurricane thundercloud

When I was checking vitals
I suggested a smile
You didn't talk for a while
You were freezing

You said you hated my tone
It made you feel so alone
So you told me
I had to be leaving

But something kept me standing
By that hospital bed
I should have quit but instead
I took care of you

You made me sleep all uneven
And I didn't believe them
When they told me that there
Was no saving you

if this song is playing in your favorite show, it means one of your favorite character is dying/dead/about to hit the lowest point of their life.

I had cancer since i was 16 i met a boy my senior year...he was the sweetest i begged him to leave and not love me. At the time i refused chemo i just felt life was done with me and there was no point in stopping it since it kept coming back after every surgery. He and i fell in love and i threw myself into getting chemo because he made the world seem a bit brighter. He'd stay in the hospital every round i had and was there when I'd come home. Loved me when my hair was falling. Loved me and stayed in my hardest moments where even my own family couldnt stay. I am in remission and he is still by my side.:)

I'm happy for you, for recovering and 'cause you find something that most people keep their lifes looking for it and died never experiencing any of it;

if you share trauma and trive troughrough together, you are problably bonded for life, if you went together to something like this,
the rest, all of it, is gonnna be easy and whatever crisis may or not come, it will be nothing compare to this...

and about this music, MG, is something else, capture all sorts of feelings, well performed and beautiful, ou can feel the sadness in the lyrics and the voice;
