St. Augustine
Band of Horses Lyrics


Silver scents of Saint Augustine
Fire in the ground
Between my better teeth
We're dancing on the poison in their graves
At the end of the night
We'd all seen better days

I know you tried
I know you're cursed
I know your best was still your worst
When Hollywood was calling out your name

Saint Augustine

If I stayed behind
Would you let your hair grow?
I will forget
The favors that you owe
I'm dreaming of car wrecks and thunderstorms are bright
Let's bury ourselves
And go haunt someone tonight

I know you tried
I know you're cursed
I know your best was still your worst
When Hollywood was calling out your name
Saint Augustine

this song reminds me of the time i went down to st. augustine with my friend and boyfriend (i used to live in northeast florida, jax area). we bought tickets online for a ghost tour and when we got there, a really terrible storm blew in and we got rained out and the tour guides refunded everyone. we were so disappointed lol. on the way back we stopped at an olive garden for dinner and my friend stole a bunch of mints and i had a cup of coffee that tasted like dish water. stupid, but i kinda miss those days.

Jax is just dish water masquerading as coffee tbh but it's home

I can't even remember the first time I heard this song but I'll never forget it.

Saw them on this tour and my God this dude's voice is just ridiculous. When I cover this song it's not half as good cuz I'm not him.

They played at Cafe Eleven in 2007! At the end of their set everyone was asking for them to play this song, but the singer said they couldn't play it because it was written by someone who had left the band. The ultimate solution was for the lead singer to play the song but outside of the venue. He walked outside with an acoustic guitar and everyone followed to hear him play. It was a beautiful moment.

My fav from band of horses. Makes me weirdly longing for the past days.
