Submarines
The Lumineers Lyrics


I believe submarines
Underneath deep blue seas
Saw the flags, Japanese
No one will believe me

Ran back to the town bar and
I told the people how
I had seen the submarine
And everyone laughed aloud
I did spy periscopes
Dead of night on the eastern coast
The police made them jokes
Told me I'd seen a ghost

Everyone thinks I'm a liar
No one knows the truth
If it was a bigger fire
I would be on the roof

Ships will rust in Baldwin Bay
(Let me go!)
No one trusts what I say
(I don't know!)
Oh my God, no one paid
(Attention!)
Overnight my hair turned gray
(Oh oh oh!)

In the end it boils down to credibility
I had none, so I will die with the secrets of the sea

(Submarine!)
(Can't find me!)

Submarine, hey

(Submarine!)

Submarines

I believe submarines
Underneath deep blue seas
Saw the flags, japanese
No one will believe me

Ran back to the town bar
And I told the people how
I'd seen a submarine
And everyone laughed aloud

I did spy a periscope
Dead of night on the eastern coast
The police made them jokes
Told me I'd seen a ghost

Everyone thinks I'm a liar
No one knows the truth
If it was a bigger fire
I would be on the roof

Ships will rust in Baldwin Bay (let me go)
No one trusts what I say (I don't know)
Oh my God no one pay (attention)
Overnight my hair turned gray
(Oh oh oh)

In the end it boils down to credibility
I had none so I will die
With the secrets of the sea

(Submarines)
(Can't find me)
Submarines
(Submarines)

Submarinos

Eu acredito em submarinos
Sob o mar azul profundo
Vi as bandeiras, japonesas
Ninguém acreditará em mim

Corri de volta para o bar da cidade
E contei às pessoas como
Tinha visto um submarino
E todos riram de mim bem alto

Eu vi mesmo um periscópio
Na calada da noite na costa leste
Os policiais fizeram suas piadas
Me disseram que eu tinha visto um fantasma

Todos pensam que sou um mentiroso
Ninguém conhece a verdade
Se fosse um incêndio maior
Eu estaria no telhado

Navios enferrujarão na Baía Baldwin (deixe-me ir)
Ninguém confia no que digo (eu não sei)
Oh meu Deus, ninguém presta (atenção)
De um dia para o outro meus cabelos ficaram grisalhos
(Oh oh oh)

No fim das contas se resume a credibilidade
Eu não tinha nenhuma, então morrerei
Corrigir
Com os segredos do mar

(Submarinos)
(Não podem me encontrar)
Submarinos
(Submarinos)



The Truth Farm

The ballast tanks of my heart just opened as my soul dove down into the briny deep of this awesome song.

I would like to give my own interpretation of this song.

I think this song reflects the lives of many people who live their lives waiting for something to come to them instead of going out and getting it.

We look back and think where did the time go, how did I end up where I am today in a sudden epiphany that we should have spent our lives looking for the proverbial submarines instead of just talking about them.

This is the lives of many these days told by schools, governments, media and simply those people in your lives that generally can't see the forest for the trees that there are no submarines, you're imagining things. 

We're told things are generally intangible from an early age but if we take the time and make the effort to do instead of talk we can become the change that we want to see.

Lets chase submarines, don't watch them on the horizon because they aren't coming any closer to the shore. 

The untold want, by life and land ne'er granted, Now, Voyager, sail thou forth, to seek and find. Walt Whitman

For those of you wondering, this song is about Wesley Shulz’s grandfather who claimed to have spotted submarines in a local body of water. The grandfather was known for telling tales but everyone laughed him off. He insisted until his death, & sure enough, a few years ago, reports were released that proved Wesley’s grandfather right all along.

Sad

Always a deep story behind their songs that makes it more meaningful.

@Jordan Cedillo not sure, I’m just repeating what Wesley in the concert.

Jordan Cedillo

It was a Japanese submarine too right? Where are the reports that said it was true, I never saw that!

Iszel Ann Benosa

that is sooo sad

pabloxequis

I don't know why but... all Lumineers song seem short to me. Maybe because I like them so much, they go by too fast. 

Laura Beth Bond

Watch it multiple times then it is not that short

eoghandeegan

Mr. Orange

Well, the first verse ended a little before halfway through the video
