American Football - Where Are We Now? Lyrics




Where are we now?
Both home alone in the same house
Would you even know it if I wasn't told it?
If I wasn't afraid to say what I mean

We've been here before
But I don't remember a lock on the door
Is it keeping me out or you in?

Strange how these city streets have changed faces
Like we did
Would you even know me if time hadn't stole me?
If I wasn't afraid to say what I need

We've been here before
We'll figure it out like that goddamn door
We just need a skeleton key

Leave me or don't, I don't care
Just let me know when you finally drag your body out of bed
I'll get my things

    Where are we now?
    Both home alone in the same house
    Would you even know it if I wasn't told it?
    If I wasn't afraid to say what I mean
    We've been here before
    But I don't remember a lock on the door
    Is it keeping me out or you in?
    Strange how these city streets have changed faces
    Like we did
    Would you even know me if time hadn't stole me?
    If I wasn't afraid to say what I need
    We've been here before
    We'll figure it out like that goddamn door
    We just need a skeleton key
    Leave me or don't, I don't care
    Just let me know when you finally drag your body out of bed
    I'll get my things

    This is one of those songs that will take you a step back and bring you to deeper thoughts, and by the time you realize the effects its followed by a smile on your face.

    Why emo music makes me think about 90s cell phones? Holy shit, I've just dug out Nokia 5110 from 1998 to play Snake again.

  11. John Colbridge

    This is now my favorite song on this album, constant repeat.

  12. Tom Fontaine

    This song is beautiful. It walks you through conflict. Articulates a dark feeling in a bright way. You don't just get a feeling from this song, you experience a heart. You experience years of this persons life. I love it.

    John Colbridge

    Tom Fontaine well said.

    Brian Trinh

    Tom Fontaine I'm in total agreement with you. For me, the song really humanizes the kinds of conflict couples in long term relationships struggle with. It doesn't portray conflict in an overly romantic way out of touch with reality - Mike Kinsella is clear about the petty shit couples can do in his songs. At the same time, he doesn't overlook the genuine love that is there, struggling to emerge from the mud and exhaustion of stress and work and everyday life. "We've been here before. We'll figure it out like that goddamn door." The speaker has confidence they'll resolve things despite the uncertainty, frustration ...

    The outro breaks my heart. When the singer says, "Leave me or don't...I don't care..." Clearly he cares, but is too exhausted or overwhelmed or stressed with arguing to continue. And his significant other is too. "Let me know when you drag your body out of bed. I'll get my things." The imagery is surprising to me because I imagine someone wanting to leave or break up with someone angry at the door ready to go, but they are depressed or exhausted laying in bed. It is absurd, somewhat funny, and sad and depressing all at the same time for me. Really highlights the ambiguities and complexities in human conflict.

    Brian Trinh

    Also, there is a strong implied "where are we going now?" - besides the present focused question of "Where are we now?" Especially at the end, when Mike Kinsella sings plaintively, "When you finally drag your body out of bed...I'll get my things." Get my things and go where? In separate ways? Continue on together with life with uncertainty and weariness? Continue on together with renewed confidence in the relationship?

  13. Alexandru-Andrei Haraga

    I really like how the opening track sets the mood for the entire album and kinda makes you take it as a whole. Also nice how pieces of the songs are connected to the cover.
