Petrichor
Tall Ships Lyrics


Don't believe me when I say I'm sorry
I don't mean anything I say
A faithless face amongst faceless faces
A bad decision made in good faith

I'm cold to all illustrious distractions
Lost to love, work and play
Stuck in my own world of pallid abstractions
Forcing out these things to say
'Cause I was lost when I called you mother
I didn't realize you felt the same
And I was drunk when I called you father
But no, you're not to blame

'Cause I did this to myself
No I can't blame anybody else
And when the photographs that line your shelves
Belong to somebody else
You know it's time for change

So please forgive me for my boring stories
I've never felt that much at all
Just floated through life chasing money
A sack full of meat and bone

And with every start all I see is the finishing line
Every new beginning I just see the end
And I'll bite the loving hand that's fed me
Time and time again

Because I did this to myself
No I can't blame anybody else
The photographs that line my shelves
Belong to somebody else

And in this ongoing war
My favorite smell is petrichor
The scent straight after rain
An illusion of beginning again

Don't believe me when I say I'm sorry
I don't mean anything I say
A faithless face amongst faceless facesA bad decision made in good faith
I'm cold to all illustrious distractions
Lost to love, work and play
Stuck in my own world of pallid abstractions
Forcing out these things to say
Cos I was lost when I called you mother
I didn't realise you felt the same
And I was drunk when I called you father
But know you're not to blame
Cos I did this to myself
No I can't blame anybody else
And when the photographs that line your shelves
Belong to somebody else
You know it's time for change
Please forgive me for my boring stories
I've never felt that much at all
Just floated through life chasing money
A sack full of meat and bone
And with every start all I see is the finishing line
Every new beginning I just see the end
And I'll bite the loving hand that's fed me
Time and time again.
Cos I did this to myself
No I can't blame anybody else
The photographs that line my shelves
Belong to somebody else
And in this ongoing war
My favourite smell is petrichor
The scent straight after rain
An illusion of beginning again

Don't believe me when I say I'm sorry
I don't mean anything I say
A faithless face amongst faceless faces
A bad decision made in good faith

I'm cold to all illustrious distractions
Lost to love, work and play
Stuck in my own world of pallid abstractions
Forcing out these things to say

'Cause I was lost when I called you mother
I didn't realise you felt the same
And I was drunk when I called you father
But no, you're not to blame

[Chorus]
'Cause I did this to myself
No I can't blame anybody else
And when the photographs that line your shelves
Belong to somebody else
You know it's time for change

So please forgive me for my boring stories
I've never felt that much at all
Just floated through life chasing money
A sack full of meat and bone

And with every start all I see is the finishing line
Every new beginning I just see the end
And I'll bite the loving hand that's fed me
Time and time again

[Chorus]
Because I did this to myself
No I can't blame anybody else
The photographs that line my shelves
Belong to somebody else

And in this ongoing war
My favourite smell is petrichor
The scent straight after rain
An illusion of beginning again

Petrichor - the earthy scent that comes from grass when it rains

I found this song through the video, I already knew Tall Ships and enjoyed their music. This track however completely ripped my shit up. I've played it about 20 times this weekend. They've encapsulated a sound that is nostalgic and also new, I feel at home in it and also ready for what they can do; and that's just the surface impression. I've not felt a band speaking to me on a deep personal level for a long time and their combined instrumentation does that, along with the incredibly poignant lyrics. There's a lot more I can say about the imagery, I've spent a couple nights chundering on myself hoping I'll get saved by the girl who saw a spark in me but that's another story. For now I just want to say thankyou lads, keep doing this, see you soon (prefrorming live)
