Fleet Foxes: Grown Ocean

Bollywood meets the Beach Boys. Off of “Helplessness Blues”, released some time last spring when I wasn’t paying attention. Thanks Thomas.

Fleet Foxes: Grown Ocean (Robin Pecknold)

In that dream I’m as old as the mountains
Still as starlight reflected in fountains
Children grown on the edge of the ocean
Kept like jewelry kept with devotion

In that dream moving slow through the morning

You would come to me then, without answers
Lick my wounds and remove my demands for now
Eucalyptus and orange trees are bloomin’
In that dream there’s no darkness a loomin’

In that dream moving slow through the morning

In that dream I could hardly contain it
All my life I will wait to attain it
There, there, there

I know someday the smoke will all burn off
All these voices I’ll someday have turned off
I will see you someday when I’ve woken
I’ll be so happy just to have spoken
I’ll have so much to tell you about it

In that dream I could hardly contain it
All my life I will wait to attain it
There, there, there

Wide eyed walker, don’t betray me
I will wake one day, don’t delay me
Wide eyed leaver, always going

  1. We always have sources!
    But when I have my goodbye Potsdam party on Saturday, Thomas, who lives downstairs, will have something better to do: He’ll be off listening to … yep … the Fleet Foxes!
    Sigh.
