Blue Ridge Mountains
Fleet Foxes Lyrics


Light up with me, my dear
Light up
Under stormy night, tell nobody

My brother, where do you intend to go tonight?
I heard that you missed your connecting flight
To the Blue Ridge Mountains, over near Tennessee

You're ever welcome with me any time you like
Let's drive to the country side
Leave behind some green-eyed look-a-likes
So no one gets worried, no
So no one gets worried, no

But, Sean, don't get callous
I'm sure it'll be fine
I love you, I love you
Oh brother of mine

In the quivering forest
Where the shivering dog rests
Our good grandfather
Built a wooden nest
And the river got frozen
And the hole got snowed in
And the yellow moon glowed bright
'Til the morning light

Terrible am I, child?
Even if you don't mind

In the quivering forest
Where the shivering dog rests
Our good grandfather
Built a wooden nest
And the river got frozen
And the home got snowed in
And the yellow moon glowed bright
'Til the morning light

Terrible am I, child?
Even if you don't mind
No

Serpent of the Seas

The whole aesthetic makes me think of the day my dog got put down.

"Terrible am I, child, even if you don't mind." - I had many many regrets (and still do) while we were driving him to my aunt (she took care of putting him down.)

"The river was frozen, and the hole got snowed-in" - A blizzard was happening where we lived that day.

"My brother where do you intend to go tonight?" - I thought of my dog as my brother, as I didn't have memories of living without him, I missed him alot the night he left.

"I love you, I love you, oh brother of mine" Either when my sister and I realized we really only had each other now, OR optionally, my dog and me saying our last goodbyes as I handed him over to my Aunt.

"In the quivering forest, where the shivering dog rests." We were too broke to pay for a vet to take him down, the next humane thing was to give him treats (we picked his favorite treat) while my uncle took a clean shot. He is also buried in that forest, where my uncle's parents buried their dogs.

Nonetheless, I listen to this song to remember my dog and cry a lot because life is too different without him.
He died on December 15th, 2019 at around 1:00 pm. I miss him greatly. There is not a day where I do not think about him.

Lie down with me, my dear
Lie down
Under stormy night, tell nobody

My brother, where do you intend to go tonight?
I heard that you missed your connecting flight
To the Blue Ridge Mountains, over near Tennessee

You're ever welcome with me any time you like
Let's drive to the country side
Leave behind some green-eyed look-a-likes
So no one gets worried, no
So no one gets worried, no

But, Sean, don't get careless
I'm sure it'll be fine
I love you, I love you
Oh brother of mine

In the quivering forest
Where the shivering dog rests
Our good grandfather
Built a wooden nest
And the river got frozen
And the hole got snowed in
And a yellow moon glowed bright
'Til the morning light


Terrible am I, child?
Even if you don't mind

In the quivering forest
Where the shivering dog rests
Our good grandfather
Built a wooden nest
And the river got frozen
And the home got snowed in
And a yellow moon glowed bright
'Til the morning light

Terrible am I, child?
Even if you don't mind
No

And the home got snowed in
And the yellow moon glowed bright
