Blind Pilot - Oviedo Lyrics




The thrill here is quicker than you'd think
The way some jet-lagged bar kept pouring the wine
From over their heads then sit back down again
Four times is once too much for luck
And that's how many times the clock struck
I wandered home saying your name

The arches here were built 'cause they don't fall,
The cathedrals to make you feel small,
That you might find your small soul.
But leave the preaching to the president.
The crowd cheers. His eyes get wet.
I'm full as it is, I'm full as it is
So don't feed me more.

You'll be having my head, big as a birthday
'Cause I left all my doubts on the airplane.
I didn't know, I didn't know I'm not in control
I didn't know, I'm not invincible.

Now maybe some things are better left unsaid
But if you wanted to test that out, well, yeah, I guess, I could've said.
But there were nights in bars that I recall
Your breath was courage laced with alcohol
You leaned in, you said,
"Make music with the chatter in here
And whisper all the notes in my ears."
I didn't know, I didn't know the weight of my tongue
I didn't know, I didn't know what I'd done.

The lights here are softer than you'd think
The dim lit peacocks in the trees,
Are hiding their eyes and their beauty, like me.
But if my eyes were on my back
I know what I'd be looking at
Through every shade of browns and greens.
I didn't know, I didn't know it was nothing new
I didn't know, I didn't know it was you

    Puxa Oviedo <3

  11. docv73

    My daughter is doing a study abroad in Oviedo, Spain right now. Her host "sister" shows her this. Great tune. My wife and I might head there in April for a visit.

    David Rodriguez

    docv73 did you go? How was it?

  12. TheGhostInMe.

    I guess I can just consider this a song for the road...
    Goodbye Jess, forever this time.

    Dennis Schmieder

    😔😔😔

    kirk cavenaugh

    Adios...

  13. Jake Robertson

    great song

  14. Adam Volpin

    Hi everyone! I've just done a chilled-out cover of this on my channel if anyone's interested! Many thanks!

  15. AlmondRed

    I dropped by Oviedo, Spain, partially because of this song. The cathedral is beautiful, and there really are peacocks in the trees of the park <3

    Alejandro Fernandi

    Hahaha, that's true. Crazy peacocks who go wild through the streets around the central park (Parque de San Francisco) of the city.

    Such a beautiful and boring city!

  16. Nealy Seal

    Can you give me a Xbox live gold password

  17. Thomas Arrington

    Reminds me of Pyro from TF2

  18. Jamie Burke

    15 people need new speakers.

  19. Max Howe

    i wish they would m,ake more music

    Joanne Stazio

    I heard one is in the works???

  20. ATLNTICA

    It's quite sad for a Spanish person to think that this song is for the Spanish Oviedo and then you realize that there's an Oviedo in Florida, which is probably the one that inspired this masterpiece. Thanks Blind Pilot!

    alex price

    Its even sadder when the expressed reason this song was created was because of a trip to Oviedo Spain, you goddamn fool.

    Andrea Perez

    Extract from a blind pilot interview: "Israel spent his last semester in the city of Oviedo, Spain. That's where he wrote this song. It's full of images from his time there."

    BURRRRRRN!

  25. beuhtrix

    I love that line "make music with the chatter in here, and whisper all the notes in my ears"

  26. Julio César García Atterström

    Oviedo y Asturias en el alma! Oí la canción por primera vez en la película "Languaqe of a Broken Heart". Muy buenas, ambas la película y la canción. Y no sabía yo que hubiera un Oviedo en Florida.

  27. BaRbariiTA

    Me encanta esta canción. Puxa Oviedo.

  28. Cristina Oviedo

    My last name is Oviedo. I feel so special :3

    Private_Ventures

    I feel you. I'm the same way with American Pie.

  31. Janson Campbell

  37. TheGhostInMe.

    'I Didn't Know, I'm Not Invincible..'

  38. Pawel Zietek

    Go to the store, buy the cd. Than insert the cd to the reader in your computer. Than - for free - rip the song (or entire album). iTunes will do just fine.

  39. June Luu

    does anyone know where I can download this song into my computer for free???
    Please, I can't find this song anywhere to download onto my computer for free.....please tell me if you know.... (FOR FREE!!)

  40. Berenike Giese

    This song is freaking amazing. I just love it.

  41. IndigoPlateau

    This song brings tears to my eyes. I want to thank limewire for letting me know about this band in one of their promos. Introduced me to a truly beautiful music experience.

  42. Beacoro

    It's the gentleness of Oviedo and the memory of its soft and subtle beauty, perfectly expressed in song and all wrapped up in a bittersweet story and lovely music. I'm so glad I found this. Thanks for uploading it, you made my day! :')

  43. Beacoro

    I'm from Oviedo, Asturias, and I must say I'm really touched by this song, especially now that I'm studying in another city.
    I can really feel my hometown in the lyrics: the peacocks roaming free at the Campo San Francisco, the sidra being 'escanciada' (poured from over your head!) each time you want a glass, our small, peculiar cathedral, the shades of brown and green, the really late nights...

  44. thefitoi

    Isnt oviedo the capital of asturias? :)

  45. Vavooxii

    Well, you're a lucky person...Jackie

  46. Simon Soto
