Banhart, Devendra - Middle Names Lyrics

I pretend when I look in your eyes
Don't know where you're going
Don't come back, please come back tonight
Just about the only thing left is a lie
I wonder where you are
Then I wonder
But I won't wonder anymore

And I can see you now
Sitting there in front of the station
Feel the rain fall down again
I'd love to be there now but I'm heading in the other direction
Feel the rain fall
Feel the rain fall

Why is the moon so bright?
Why are you so nice?
See you alone at the Walgreens at night
I used to think that you'd always return to your woman-in-waiting
My love belongs to no one
And just about the only thing left is a lie
I wonder where you are
Then I wonder again

And I can see you now
Sitting there in front of the station
Feel the rain fall down again

  13. karla monsalve hernandez

    "En este hotel imaginario está Jackie, con su chaqueta de cuero fumando un cigarrillo. Su tiempo ha pasado pero ella sigue todavía elegante. Mucho maquillaje, pero cool. Un poco rockabilly, setenta setenta y dos años por ahí, pero fumando. Y en la esquina, un hombre de negocios con la corbata abierta, desaliñado, destartalado, balbuceando...una atmósfera muy tranquila, melancólica y un poco reconfortante..."

  37. Teresa Sotomayor

    this song was written about my best friend and once a true love of mine ; it's so beautiful, " he was so nice"

  38. PisumSativum

    "This song was written for Asa Ferry, front man of the Los Angeles–based orchestral-pop outfit Kind Hearts & Coronets. Asa passed away 10 months ago. Honestly i'm still in shock and hoping he'll show up at my door any day now. I loved him very much. He had not passed away when i started writing Middle Names. It was initially about thinking i saw him waiting at a bus stop, and then the feeling of knowing we were both wandering through the city, possibly only a block away from each other but not knowing it, the feeling of alone together."


    PisumSativum So poignant. Life is weird

    Shady Groves
