We Were Wealth
Wye Oak Lyrics


Though I am grown,
I am living like a child now.
I wish, I want:
Giving myself everything
Fearing the release,
Keeping the peace

Say, for instance,
I pay money for an object
Sight unseen,
How is it that it speaks for me,
Borrowed never earned,
In debt from birth

Fill the days at any cost and spent your earnings,
Ease the losses

We were wealth and we were money,
Of the world and needing nothing

I lived in heavy metal land for years. once I discovered really good soft music I left it all behind

What a beautiful haunting song with a powerful ending. Love it.

I love their music. the softness of the sound reminds me of an early morning where the smell of brewing coffee is in the air as you're walking around in your pjs in a cabin in the woods as this is softly playing in the background

This song reminds me of when I use to drive around late at night randomly just because I was restless and somewhat curious. Ahh, in my "lost years"...
