Bright Eyes lyrics : "June On The West Coast "

i spent a week drinking the sunlight of winnetka, california
where they understand the weight of human hearts
you see sorrow gets too heavy and joy it tends to hold you

with the fear that it eventually departs.
and the truth is i've been dreaming of some tired tranquil
place

where the weather won't get trapped inside my bones
and if all the years of searching find one sympathetic face
then its there i will plant these seeds and make my home

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 told

you
i guess i just $$#umed that you eventually would ask
and i wouldn't have to bring up my so badly broken heart

and all those months i just wanted to sleep
and though spring, it did come slowly, i guess it did its
part

my heart has thawed and continues to beat
i visited my brother on the outskirts of olympia
where the forest and the water become one

and we talked about our childhood, like a dream we were
convinced of, that
perfect peaceful street where we came from

and i know he heard me strumming all those sad and simple
chords
as i sat inside my room so long ago

and it hurts that he's still shaking from those secrets that
were told by a
car closed up airtight and a heart turned cold

and i went to san diego
the birthplace of the summer
and watched the ocean dance under the moon

and there was a girl i knew there, one more potential lover
i guess that something's got to happen soon
because i know i can't keep living in this dead or dying

dream
and as i watched along the beach and drank with her
i thought about my true love, the one i really need

with eyes that burn so bright, they make me pure
they make me pure
they make me pure

i long to be with you
