We Looked Like Giants
Death Cab for Cutie Lyrics


God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime
Remembering when you were mine in a still suburban town

When every Thursday, I'd brave those mountain passes
And you'd skip your early classes and we'd learn how our bodies worked

God damn the black night, with all its foul temptations
I've become what I always hated when I was with you then

We looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
Fumbling to make contact as the others slept inside
And together there in a shroud of frost, the mountain air
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
And I held you closer than anyone would ever get

Remember the J.A.M.C. and reading aloud from magazines
I don't know about you but I swear on my name they could smell it on me
But I've never been to good with secrets, oh

Oh together there in a shroud of frost, the mountain air
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
And I held you closer

God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime
Remembering when you were mine in a still suburban town
When every Thursday, I'd brave those mountain passes
And you'd skip your early classes and we'd learn how our bodies worked
God damn the black night, with all its foul temptations
I've become what I always hated when I was with you then
We looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
Fumbling to make contact as the others slept inside
And together there in a shroud of frost, the mountain air
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
And I held you closer than anyone would ever get
Remember the J.A.M.C. and reading aloud from magazines
I don't know about you but I swear on my name they could smell it on me
But I've never been to good with secrets, oh
Oh together there in a shroud of frost, the mountain air
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
And I held you closer

Lyrics

God bless the daylight, the sugary smell of springtime
Remembering when you were mine
In a still suburban town

When every thursday I'd brave those mountain passes
And you'd skip your early classes
And we'd learn how our bodies worked.

God damn the black night with all it's foul temptation
I become what I always hated
When I was with you then

We looked like giants in the back of my grey subcompact
Fumbling to make contact
As the others slept inside

And together there
In a shroud of frost, the mountain air
Began to pass from every pane of weathered glass
And I held you closer than anyone would ever get

Do you remember the JAMC?
And reading aloud from magazines
I don't know about you but I swear on my name they could smell it on me
I've never been too good with secrets.
No...

And together there
In a shroud of frost and mountain air
Began to pass through every pane of weathered glass
And I held you closer...

11 years ago I would listen to this album every day.. Dcfc's music got me through bad times. Transatlanticism is not only a masterpiece, it's a blessing.

Madd Ness did you recognize the JAMC reference

Nothing mattered when you had this song and the mountain.

Jay Jay

This Album is indeed a Masterpeice.
Snowboarding to this song was my favorite thing ever on powder days after hearing it in a snowboard video "Lost in Transition" 14 years ago.

Now that I'm approaching 40, I appreciate this song more. All the lying I did just for a few extra nights at my boyfriend's house

I've always loved this song, but it always had a bittersweet taste to me. maybe I just attribute those memories to it idk

Spiritryptamine

This whole album evokes lots of memories, but I refuse to let any of those memories take over any of the tracks... It's just such a beautiful album, it's mine.

angelburlingame

I still hear this song and I feel the same way. I honestly feel a sadness and angst in me when I listen to it, so yes bittersweet. I feel like there is a soundtrack to every point in my life, and rehearing it brings you back to then.
