Bright Eyes – From a Balance Beam lyrics


“Bright Eyes – West Coast June Lyrics”

[Verse 1]
I spent a week drinking the sunshine in Winnetka, California
Where they understand the weight of human hearts
See, sorrow gets too heavy, and joy tends to hold you back
The fear that he will end up leaving

[Chorus 1]
And the truth is that I dreamed of a tired and quiet place
Where time won’t be trapped inside my bones
And if all these years of research find a sympathetic face
So that’s where I’ll plant these seeds and make them my home

[Verse 2]
I spent a day dreaming of dying in Mesa, Arizona
Where all the green of life had turned to ash
And I felt I was on fire with the things I could have said to you
I just assumed you’d end up asking

[Chorus 2]
And I wouldn’t have to talk about my heart so badly broken
And all these months I just wanted to sleep
And though spring came slowly, I guess it did its part
My heart has thawed out and is still beating

[Verse 3]
And I visited my brother on the outskirts of Olympia
Where forest and water are one
And we talked about our childhood, like a dream that we were convinced
This perfect and peaceful street where we come from

[Chorus 3]
And I know he heard me strum all those sad simple chords
As I sat in my room so long ago
And it hurts that he’s still shaking from those secrets that were told by a locked car too tight and a heart gone cold

[Verse 4]
And I went to San Diego and the birthplace of summer
And watched the ocean dance under the moon
And there was a girl I knew there, one more potential lover
I guess something has to happen soon

[Chorus 4]
‘Cause I know I can’t keep living in this dead or dying dream
And as I walked along the beach and drank with her
I thought about my true love, the one I really need
With eyes that shine so bright, they make me pure

They make me pure
They make me pure
I can not wait to be with you
They make me pure
They make me pure
I can not wait to be with you
