T-Shirt Weather
Circa Waves Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

She left me and said
Baby won't you come to bed
But I can not sleep
While the sun's awake

The nights been so long
You don't get me right, don't get me wrong
Now my head tells the tales
I hardly know

I remember T-shirt weather
I remember some days
We were singing our lungs out
in the backseat together
And the seatbelts were burning our fingers
In the T-shirt weather
I remember sleeping till the early afternoon

Drinks fly like birds
Across the kitchen trouble stirs
And I'm tongue-tied by words
I used to know

So we talk till we're sick
Seventeen went far too quick
And when my mind plays tricks
I have to go

I remember T-shirt weather
I remember some days
We were singing our lungs out
in the backseat together
And the seatbelts were burning our fingers
In the T-shirt weather
I remember sleeping till the early afternoon

It's going to be ok
It's going to be ok
It's going to be ok
It's going to be ok
It's going to be ok
It's going to be ok

I remember T-shirt weather
I remember some days
We were singing our lungs out
in the backseat together
And the seatbelts were burning our fingers
In the T-shirt weather
(Yeah) In the T-shirt weather




(Yeah) In the T-shirt weather
In the T-shirt weather

Overall Meaning

The song "T-Shirt Weather" by Circa Waves is a nostalgic account of past memories that were simpler and carefree. The singer reminisces about a time when he was young and carefree, specifically a summer when he and some friends were driving around, singing songs in the back seat, and enjoying the hot weather. However, as the song progresses, it becomes clear that the singer's life is no longer so carefree anymore. His girlfriend has left him, and he can't sleep at night. He's struggling to find the right words, and he feels like he's losing touch with who he used to be. Despite all of this, the singer remains optimistic and tries to reassure himself that everything will be okay.


The lyrics of the song are vivid and evocative, painting a picture of idyllic summers and carefree days. The imagery of the "T-shirt weather" is especially powerful, conjuring up images of warm sunny days, short sleeves, and easy living. However, as the song progresses, the imagery becomes more complicated, reflecting the singer's growing sense of unease and dislocation. The "burning seatbelts" and "trouble stirring" in the kitchen are both examples of this.


Line by Line Meaning

She left me and said
My partner left me and told me to come to bed


Baby won't you come to bed
My partner asked me to join them in bed


But I can not sleep
I am unable to sleep


While the sun's awake
Because it is still daytime


The night's been so long
The night feels like it's been going on for a long time


You don't get me right, don't get me wrong
There are misunderstandings between us


Now my head tells the tales
My thoughts are telling me stories


I hardly know
But I am not sure what is true or not


I remember T-shirt weather
I have fond memories of warm weather when T-shirts were enough to wear


I remember some days
I recall specific days


We were singing our lungs out in the backseat together
My friends and I were enjoying each other's company and singing loudly in the car


And the seatbelts were burning our fingers
The metal parts of the seatbelts were hot from the sun


In the T-shirt weather
During the warm days when T-shirts were enough to wear


I remember sleeping till the early afternoon
I remember waking up late and spending lazy days enjoying the warm weather


Drinks fly like birds
Beverages are being spilled and splashing around like birds in flight


Across the kitchen trouble stirs
There is conflict happening in the kitchen


And I'm tongue-tied by words
I am speechless and unable to express myself


I used to know
I am confused because things were different before


So we talk till we're sick
We discuss things to the point of exhaustion


Seventeen went far too quick
Being younger went by too quickly


And when my mind plays tricks
When my thoughts mislead me


I have to go
I have to leave and clear my head


It's going to be ok
Things will be alright


Yeah


In the T-shirt weather
Recalling the good times in the summer


Yeah


In the T-shirt weather
Recalling the sunny days when T-shirts were the perfect clothing option


In the T-shirt weather
The warm summer days are something to remember fondly

She left me and said

But I can not sleep
While the sun's awake

The nights been so long
You don't get me right, don't get me wrong
Now my head tells the tales

And the seatbelts were burning our fingers
In the T-shirt weather

Drinks fly like birds
Across the kitchen trouble stirs
And I'm tongue-tied by words
I used to know

17 went far too quick
And when my mind plays tricks
I have to go

Typical fun with friends as teenagers in the summer. He’s thinking back to a more lively and vibrant…

10 years ago this would have made number 1, why is it that great bands like this struggle to even get off the ground nowadays?

DrauLienz

So true

kface001

MrScarecrow901 Hit the nail on the head mate. I miss the naughties indie revolution

Roberto Landi

Indie rock has been destroyed by musical industry, in Italy about 10% of people know how indie rock means and this makes me very very sad

tcs901

***** I see a lack of evidence of a new wave revival.
