Tiny Vessels
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


This is the moment that you know
That you told you loved her but you don't.
You touch her skin and then you think
That she is beautiful but she don't mean a thing to me.
Yeah, she is beautiful, but she don't mean a thing to me.

I spent two weeks in Silverlake.
The California sun cascading down my face
There was a girl with light brown streaks
And she was beautiful but she didn't mean a thing to me.
Yeah, she was beautiful, but she didn't mean a thing to me.

Wanted to believe in all the words that I was speaking
As we moved together in the dark.
And all the friends that I was telling.
And all the playful misspellings.
And every bite I gave you left a mark.

Tiny vessels oozed into your neck
And formed the bruises,
That you said you didn't want to fade,
But they did and so did I that day.

All I see are dark grey clouds
In the distance moving closer with every hour.
So when you ask "Was something wrong?",
That I think "You're damn right there is but we can't talk about it now.
No, we can't talk about it now."

So one last touch and then you'll go.
And we'll pretend that it meant something so much more,
But it was vile, and it was cheap.
And you are beautiful, but you don't mean a thing to me
Yeah, you are beautiful, but you don't mean a thing to me.
Yeah, you are beautiful, but you don't mean a thing to me.

i wouldnt say he doesnt empathize. i mean he knows he hurt her, and is in pain over it, at least thats how i interpret it. he wanted so hard to love her and clearly thinks she deserves that, but you cant force love and when you do it can get messy and cause situations like this. Believe me i know from personal experience.

laurent royer

agreed

Creedence

Death cab for cutie is such an amazing, but underrated, band. It kind of makes me mad that when you type in death cab on youtube, all the results are "Death cab for a cute"

Alex Vase

I was JUST THINKING THIS EXACT SAME THING. Smh

Bálint Vass

Oh, I read that Ben's been disliked the name of the band for a while or something like that, if he could go back in time, then he would choose a totally different name. Hopefully this information makes the mentioned misspelling a bit less annoying to all of us :D I never cared that much to be honest since I used to rage less that time I discovered the mistake :D (and because I might be less related to this band than you, I only know a few songs which (and this is something I should "work" on))

Na, I don't care actually. These comment sections are places where beautiful people from around the globe come together and share their genuine thoughts about love and life. And this is a small portion of the population, I really connect to most of you more than people around me. Chuck the fact that they're not famous, chuck youtube search.. All I care about is that our small affectionate community gets to share their deep feelings here. think about it, if this video had more views, it wouldn't be the case and I wouldn't be commenting here for the fear of judgement.
Have a pleasant day. :)

Creedence

No, I'm not upset with the results that come up when I press enter, I'm just upset that when I start typing in "death cab" the actual name of the band doesn't come up, the wrong name appears. I just wish they were recognized and appreciated more for who they are. I guess it doesn't really matter, It just kind of bothers me.

Edd DoDo

Creedence What, I don't get it. If you search for part of the band's name, you get videos of the band. Why does that make you mad?

I've lied about loving someone that was in love with me and having to live with that lie and pretend that everything was fine broke me. I still can't forgive myself for what I did. This song describes that perfectly
