Idlewild - El Captain Lyrics


By the harbour I harbour the strangest memories
Older than I could ever be
Stranded in nostalgia
So tonight I'll try harder
But it's hard to fix this spotlight on me
In a cast that's taken places
I'm unsure of where I want to be

Stand up,
stand up,
And stand down,
Applaud El Capitan,
And jump off to cheers from the crowd,

Stand up,
Stand up,
And stand out,
And I hope you take your camera,
To photograph my tears as they hit the ground,

No one even listens
The same way that no one ever laughs
I'm taking the car out of the snow
And wondering where the summer went to
Circled by your secrets
I'm hoping they don't include me
At least I'm in good company
Because there's no one else around
Except me

Stand up,
Stand up,
And stand out,
Applaud El Capitan,
Just to watch the world slow itself,

Stand up,
Stand up,
And stand out,
And I hope you take your camera
Silence makes the loudest sound

It seems far too easy to say the same things
I'll choose my own way to use my life up
Finally found a new way
Say the same things
In imaginary ways
I'll use my life up

You were looking at pictures in the distance
Hoping to see the future in your pictures
Of the distance hoping to see
The future looking at pictures in the distance

hoping to see the future through your pictureH
Of the distance
Hoping to see
The future in your pictures of the distance
