Basement - Earl Grey Lyrics




I looked up at your window
And pretended I could see you.
You don't live there anymore.
My mind wanders and I get lost in thoughts of you.
I sleep to escape, because drinking kills you anyway.
So why when I wake does my heart still ache?
Your cup is still on the window sill.
I'll bring myself to move it soon,
But until I do, I'll get lost in thoughts of you.
You made the best impression:
Perfection on the page.
The wildest of hearts will never be tamed

  13. Joshua Scarborough

    I looked up at your window
    And pretended I could see you.
    You don't live there anymore.
    My mind wanders and I get lost in thoughts of you.
    I sleep to escape, because drinking kills you anyway.
    So why when I wake does my heart still ache?
    Your cup is still on the window sill.
    I'll bring myself to move it soon,
    But until I do, I'll get lost in thoughts of you.
    You made the best impression:
    Perfection on the page.
    The wildest of hearts will never be tamed.

    Tom Guerrero

  27. Tiana O'Neal

  28. Finem Temporis

    Thought this was going to be a really cool Slowcore song, and then the fucking adrenaline came in at 1:05. Made my Thanksgiving, right there.

    Illkya Acosta

    I kinda wish it stayed slowcore though, it had such a serene, moody vibe to it.

  29. Sinthetik

    /watch?v=GQYm_fGlq3E

  46. Reaver

    And make sure the bottom is really tight, that's a must.

  47. asipaleadeci

    that was deep mate, almost shed a tear

  48. Gordian Stimm

    thick skin, tune very tight, and turn the snares tight also. preferably on a shallow drum, and with the technique make sure you perform a rim shot.

  49. xspatchx

    WOW. SO TRUE

  50. REPTILIA101

    does anyone know how to tune a snare to sound like this?

  51. Garrett Alexander Leach

    I have a feeling that when they are all done with school, they will miss what they had. they'll get back together but it will take some time...i hope

  52. ReprogrammedToHate

    they have it, incluiding their new one at: runforcoverrecords(dot)bandcamp(dot).com

  53. ReprogrammedToHate

    Oh damn, so much feeling on this...

  54. Faceless free wolf

    This is FUCKING amazing.

  55. zhang dang

  57. Rodney

    One of the Greatest songs ever written. No lie.

  58. Wendy Aleman

    i wish i could stay here , on this page forever

  59. SiberianKissed

    This fucking song kills me inside every single time. I do like to pretend she lives there from time to time.

  60. jsh020

    yah getting merch there would of been nice. I mean you can always order online but being able to say "I got this at one of their final shows before disbanding" would be nice.

  61. jsh020

    you lucky bastard, i hope you enjoyed that show. you were one of the lucky few to be able to see this band off.

  62. Jessica Jean

    I wish you could stay here too, bby.
    RIP. I'll always love you. <3

  63. Kamille Montoya

    "I looked up at your window, pretended I could you. You don't live there anymore."
    I'm literally heartbroken. I better catch one of their last shows.

  64. Si Chapman

    Sad these Guys had to leave us so soon. But they have left us a great album...and a new one on the way. Gonna miss your shit.
