Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness - High Dive (Acoustic) Lyrics




I took the train home, facing backwards
Another hopeless chase
Echo Park, Indian Summer

I wrote a new song
About your new life
Like steps I retrace
Block letters in your little black notebook

Yeah

Flashbacks get me close
I'm almost there

Headlight in the driveway
You stand in the window waiting
The stars are out tonight
One million fires burning

Out there on the high dive
You dance with your headphones on
And I could watch you all night long
Dancing to someone else's song

Oh, dancing to someone else's song
Oh, dancing to someone else's

Black jacket, a blue motorbike
Pass the mission in the moonlight
Teenagers in the alley kissing

Smell the gas burn, saw your street sign
Doing 80 in a 45
Throwing shadows you could hear if you listen

Flashbacks get me close
I'm almost there

Headlight in the driveway
You stand in the window waiting
The stars are out tonight
One million fires burning

Out there on the high dive
You dance with your headphones on
And I could watch you all night long
Dancing to someone else's song

Oh, dancing to someone else's song
Oh, dancing to someone else's

Oh
Oh, oh

Oh
Oh, oh

Flashbacks get me close
But I'm staring at someone else's

Headlights in your driveway
You stand in the window waiting
The stars are out tonight
One million fires burning

Meet me on the high dive
You dance with your headphones on
So I could watch you all night long
Dancing to someone else's song

Oh, dancing to someone else's song
Oh, dancing to someone else's song

Someone else's song
To someone else's song
To someone else's
Someone else's
Someone else's
Song

  2. Bob Durante

  3. Kevinb1821

    This song is about sniping an ex girlfriend dancing on a diving board

  4. Emma Rose

  5. Aspen Aragon

    listening to Andrew and seeing him to what he was destined to do makes my heart feel all the love. keep doing what you were put on earth to do. love you Andrew.

  6. Joe Marek

    this guy just sounds like a Jack's Mannequin rip off

    Jigglibuff

    +Joe Marek I agree. Then again, Jack's Mannequin to me just sounded like a Something Corporate rip off

    Clairebear1221

    +Joe Marek thats probably because he's the lead singer for jacks mannequin and something corporate

    Joe Marek

    +Clairebear1221 idk..... this guy looks older to me than the guy from Jack's Mannequin or the guy from something corporate

    Samantha Kaster

    +Joe Marek I hope you're not serious lol jeez Google him if you're really that clueless

  7. Scott Watkins

    this version is awesome. thank you Undateable for having him on the show.

  8. Lexi M

    This is beautiful ugh I'm just so speechless

  9. Victoria Maione

    this song is so beautiful.

  10. Victoria Maione

    this song is so beautiful.

  11. Josh Crandall

    ive been listening to you since I was 13. Love that after 12+ years I still can connect and still relate to each and every song. thank you for not "selling out" like other artists. keep it real and keep rocking the piano .

    joakim nilsson

    me2 josh, i started when i was 16, and im 31 today. This man is a genius.

  12. Josh Crandall

    cant get enough of these solo videos. seems like the lyrics really hit a lot harder. can not wait to see you in buffalo!

  13. isabellasmurf

    Oh by the way AMAZING PREFORMANCE at Big Gig the other day. To be honest I though I was going to hate you and now you are near tied for my favorite singer.

  14. isabellasmurf

    This is so beautiful and it makes me cry because songs like this remind me of how badly I want to become a singer but I feel like there is to much keeping me from achieving my dream. I love you Andrew you are amazing.

  15. Audrey Cobb

    I loved your performance at the Paramount in Denver.  We had such a great time!

  16. holla1holla2holla3

    Just beautiful

  17. jdsk vids

    i find myself trying to decipher the lyrics... is this about an affair, or the fact that there wasn't one?

    James Collins

    +Jess Rines Music lol sorry to give you this 9 months later, but I see it as he regrets a relationship that was broken off, and he still has feelings for her, but she has moved on. Even though he knows she's with someone else, he's happy for her because of the fact that she is happy - "I could watch you all night long dancing to someone else's song."

  18. Brent Hnatiuk

    he went MJ on @ 1:56 lol. he will always be a hero to me. Andrew and a piano. priceless. Konstantine will forever be my favorite, but everything by him is awesome

  19. Taylor McGuire

    9k+ views, zero thumbs down.

    That's because this is amazing music.

  20. DoubIeRose

    Is High Dive going to be played during this tour?

    Ryan nelson

    He played it last night in Minnesota.

  21. Maddie Krisle

    It would make my life if you followed me on [email protected] 

  22. Jason Long

    Why can't we get a stripped down album of just Andrew and a piano?

    Noll R

    Agreed. I'd love him to put out a record of all the biggest hits of SoCo, Jack's, and his solo stuff - all stripped down and recorded in one live session like this, just him and his piano.

  23. Michelle Narducci

    Soooo happy he's keeping Emo alive!!! 

  24. Kevin Yee

    Loving this version

  25. Noll R

    I love the album like I love all his music but these recordings where it's just him and a piano - that's what it's all about for me. I've been so looking forward to hearing some of these tracks like this, and this is absolutely beautiful.

  26. Veronica Lloyd

    Beautiful. <3

  27. Mike Marshall

    Top Shelf Andrew!!

  28. Twisted Sweet

    And here I thought I couldn't like this song any more than I did!

  29. Sonya Coates

    Perfect. My favorite. Love the album version but this grabs me in a different way. 

  30. Nardes

    GOOSEBUMPS

  31. Yahssain Khan
