“Light Enough to Travel” by The Be Good Tanyas

“Promise me we won’t go into the nightclub. I really think that it’s obscene. What kind of people go to meet people someplace they can’t be heard or seen?”

I wound up drunk again on Robson St.
Strange cuz we always agreed
At the start of every evening
That’s the last place I wanna be

Coffee drinkers dressed in black with no sugar
They don’t give me no respect
They say “Look, here comes another one”
And I don’t know what they mean yet

And I say
Keep it light enough to travel…
Don’t let it all unravel
Keep it light enough to travel

Promise me we won’t go into the nightclub
I feel so fucked up when I’m in there
Can’t tell the bouncers from the customers
And I don’t know which ones I prefer

Promise me we won’t go into the nightclub
I really think that it’s obscene
What kind of people go to meet people
Someplace they can’t be heard or seen

Keep it light enough to travel…
Don’t let it all unravel
Keep it light enough to travel

I broke the windows of the logging company
Just to get a little release
I had to throw down my accordion
To get away from the police

And I say…

Don’t let it all unravel
Keep it light enough to travel

I'm routinely overestimated.
