Drops In The River
Fleet Foxes Lyrics


Crown of leaves, high in the window on a gold morning
Young today, old as a railroad tomorrow
Days are just drops in the river to be lost always
Only you

Years ago, birds of a feather would arrive nightly
Gone you know, held to another like clutched ivy
On the shore, speak to the ocean and receive silence
Only you
Here as the caves of my memory fade, I'll hold to the first one
I wouldn't turn to another you say, on the long night we've made
Let it go

Speak to me slow my dear, no ghost of course in here,
pleased to be lonesome quiet and clear, all is alone in here.

This song has a very sitting in the summer rain and letting the drops slowly melt your worries while you find a moment of peace and clarity with who you are vibe and im living for it

I think I will actually cry when I stand out on the coast and listen to this. I'm hopefully going to the Olympic Peninsula by myself in late March. "On the shore speak to the Ocean and receive silence."

Jonah Davis

Their most underrated song by far

Collin Cook

I used to think this was a love song but after listening closer. I think it is an attestation to the beauty of solitude and knowing your self. "Only you know"

Lyrics:


Crown of leaves, high in the window on a gold morning
Young today, old as a railroad tomorrow
Days are just drops in the river to be lost always
Only you, only you, you know
Years ago, birds of a feather would arrive nightly
Gone you know, held to another like clutched ivy
On the shore, speak to the ocean and receive silence
Only you, only you, you know
You hesitate, so my memory fades
I'll hold to the first one
"I wouldn't turn to another, " you say
On the long night we've made
Let it go
Only you, only you, you know
Only you, only you, you know
You hesitate, so my memory fades
I'll hold to the first one
"I wouldn't turn to another, " you say
On the long night we've made
Let it go
Let it go
Speak to me slow, my dear
No ghost, of course, in here
Pleased to be lonesome, quiet and clear
All is alone in here

I love this album so much!

HOPELESS Ent.

That’s what hurts. This isn’t an album it’s just an EP.
