“Thinking of a Place” by The War on Drugs

It was back in Little Bend that I saw you.

Light was changing on the water, where birds above had flown
There was pain in your eyes.
So you vanished in the night.
Missouri River in the distance.
So I lied upon the lawn.

I remember walking against the darkness of the beach.
Love is like a ghost in the distance, ever-reached.
Travel through the night because there is no fear.
Alone but right behind until I watched you disappear.

I’m moving through the dark of a long black night.

Just moving with the moon, and the light it shines.

And I’m thinking of a place, and it feels so very real.

Just moving through the dark.

Once I had a dream I was falling from the sky.
Coming down like running water.
Passing by myself alight.
In the morning, I would wake to the sound of summer’s voice.
Like little whispers through the silence.

I’m moving through the dark of a long black night.

And I’m looking at the moon, and the light it shines.

But I’m thinking of a place, and it feels so very real.

Oh, sufferer of love!

Come and take my hand, babe.

There’s a turn in the road that we’ve been taking.

Let it set you free.

Because there’s a rhythm in the way that we’ve been moving.

Yeah, there’s a darkness over there, but we ain’t going.

See it through through my eyes.

Walk me to the water

Hold my hand and something turns to me.

Love me every night.

Drown me in the water.

Hold my hand and there’s something turning me.

See it through my eyes.

Love me like no other.

And hold my hand and something turns to me.

And turns me into you.

Lead me through the light.

Pull me from the water.

Hold my hand and something turns to me.

Turns me into you.

Just see it through my eyes.

Love me like no other.

Hold my hand and something turns to me.

Turns me into you.

Turn to me

Into you.
