Innocent Vigilant Ordinary
The Appleseed Cast Lyrics


"oh, no," i said
i think about the times
the way you smile at me
and how we always kiss

and how we drank the sun
and killed the night
and fought the sleep and won
and how we left it all unmade
it was only once

now there's more than one
no, there's only one
now there's more than one
you're the only one
you're the only one
you're the only one

it's good to see
that you are doing well
and well enough to be
laughing here with me

'cause what we did
there's no excuse for it
you know i love you so
and it hurts to know what i did

it was only once

i want you to know
that i will always love you
and always be your friend
and never leave you again

the past is past us now
so we can go
and we can move ahead
i hope this letter gets read

if just only once

This song got me through more than one breakup. lol

James Collins

I love songs that I can relate to. Especially when you feel it not just in the words but in the music too.

I miss this era of music.

I don't know why, but the way their music is composed, it just gives me an ineffable feeling. Perfect band to listen to on a road trip.

Andrew is just the best! I've heard every single song that he recomends as song of the day and they just brigned my day !

This is another one of my favorites from them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KumvqIWz47s. Another group, same genre, also big in the early aughts was "American Analog Set." There are definite parallels between the two: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=maXd4ltM8og
