“Burning” by The War on Drugs

“How you been? You looking back?. You tried to your boat. Until you realized what you were up against.”

On a drive I’m taking backroads
High against where the rivers are flowing
I didn’t think that our love had grown

You had dead to rights
Hey, I’m trying to get some rest
To keep on moving

How you been? You looking back?
You tried to your boat
Until you realized what you were up against

I spent all those nights
Just trying to take you home
‘Til you released

Cross the bridge
To redefine your pain
Then the answer is in your heart

Wide awake
I rearrange the way I listen in the dark
Dreaming of starting up again

if you look, you’ll find yourself
You’re not the demon in the dark
That you and I, yea we’d been through that

Can you rectify all the time it took you away from choosing?

as you find yourself flying high up there
When you release from your heart again (woo!)
I’m just a man trying to keep the ship
From turning over again

Cross the rich derivative of pain
Crush the burning in your heart
Wide awake
To redefine the way you listen in the dark
Dreaming, starting
Like a stranded kid in a doorway
Just burning

Yeah we turn the light in

The year music critics surrendered to the War on Drugs


I'm routinely overestimated.
