Such Great Heights
Streetlight Manifesto Lyrics


I am thinking it's a sign
that the freckles in our eyes are mirror images
and when we kiss they're perfectly aligned
And I have to speculate
that God himself did make us into corresponding shapes
like puzzle pieces from the clay

True, it may seem like a stretch,
but its thoughts like this that catch my troubled
Head when you're away and I am missing you to death
When you are out there on the road
for several weeks of shows and when you scan
The radio, I hope this song will guide you home

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, 'come down now', they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
'come down now', but we'll stay...

I tried my best
to leave this all on your machine
but the persistent beat it sounded thin upon listening
That frankly will not fly
you will hear the shrillest highs and lowest lows
with the windows down when this is guiding you home

They will see us waving from such great
Heights, 'come down now', they'll say
But everything looks perfect from far away,
'come down now', but we'll stay...
(2x)

For those wondering, fuck yes they can pull this off live. and in their usual fashion they do it faster. every member of this band is insanely talented

Saw them do it live in Dallas. The trick is that they're alternating the notes for the treble.

Jose Catez yeah i totally agree. go ahead and google the guitar tab for red rubber ball and try to play it at the same pace, i dare everyone who sees this comment.

Covering a song is really hard, because if you do it your own way, like Streetlight Manifesto and Confide both did, then people can easily criticise it for not suiting the song. But if you make it too similar to the original, people will say you just copied it and didn't try to make it original.

I really like the As It Is version the most. It's also pretty different from the original.

Someone you dont need to know

@Fajar Jarjarbinks honestly they did it pretty good but the mood of the song doesn't fit the death metall stuff they pulled off.

But confide's version is sucks

This is personally my favorite version of the song. It captured the jubilant energy of the lyrics perfectly in the horn flares, and that intro was SICK! I loved the original, and I loved this too.
