Blind Pilot - Umpqua Rushing Lyrics

Panic in the first beat of the morning
Even what I've got isn't worth offering
Even faces change - my heart stays the same

Engine in the sky won't let the moment go
Following behind always a second slow
If I'm far away, am I hearing straight - I'm no voice you want to know?

You've been a forest burning no direction
Caught me sleeping smoke in my protection
Your blackened branches drifting through my water -
Are you wrapped up in his arms? I'm rushing faster and faster

Panic in the taste of all that could have been
Even what I thought wasn't worth giving
At least my mind has changed

I've been a forest burning no direction
I tried to hold you, I tried everything but running
My heart is panicking - are you kissing him?
Are you reaching through all your days with him?
Your blackened branches drifting through my water -
Are you over me? Are you are you are
I will not hold you. I will not feel your sway
I will not miss you. I will not think each day
Of summer twilight, your eyes rushing through me deep
I saw my own waters rushing right back to me -
You sitting shotgun, the lost coast calling me
Umpqua Forest, your face just like in my dream

Are you are you are [x6]

    I have been looking for a song of theirs that sounds simular to this that I heard in a comercial for a charity event in texas. The only lyrics were "trying to reach you" of something like it. Very smooth sounding. I loved it but can not find the sing. Been looking foe a coulpe of years. Would appreciate some assistance. Thankx.

    Love you guys ... You've got the cachet of that moody smart girl songstress that's currently so popular BUT you have put the guy-thing spin on it! The overall sound is sexy and appealing. I wanna hear MORE!

  24. Brandon Powell

    This is an amazing song. After reading the bio to the story behind album I was expecting a well written album, I must of underestimated them. It's an more than well written, it's an incredible musical experience.

  32. Ben Gehre

    " Ohhh you been a forest burning in no direction " and then "your blackened branches drift through my water" what does this mean?


    Ben Gehre I think metaphorically the forest was their relationship, she was the fire in which he had no control over, she destroyed their beauty, their innocence, what's left of what they had still floats through his inner conscious, is it enough to keep her? she's with someone new, living her life every day.. he has to let go, it's all very deep and extremely close to my personal life

    Ben Gehre

    @Demarcus Ryans thanks!!!

    Ben Gehre

    @Demarcus Ryans you may be in school..
    But I thought I would tell you I am sick from halloween.

    Myles Worthe

    Demarcus Ryans gayyyyyy

  33. Acu Jess

    Wowza! This is some bad ass shit right here. I like everything about this band based on what I've heard so far. IMO..they're the total package. Hopefully they've got some good representation to catapult them to the next level. The melodies are harmonious and sweet; the lyrics, heartfelt; the vocals are smooth and expressive; their look(and equipment) is vintage cool; they're obviously marketable. The percussion aspect of Blind Pilot, in my opinion..that's their REAL treasure. Good luck guys!! MORE XYLOPHONE!!

  34. Nick Fernandez

    The high hat!

  35. Ascended Serenity

    very much looking forward to the Franklin T.N. performance. Their music has always held a special place in my heart. it's odd how their lyrics coincide with the timeline of my life flawlessly

  36. Ascended Serenity

    i tried to hold you..i tried everything but running.


    Love this line.

    Ascended Serenity

    @Acousticstrings Love you.

  37. Laurent

    James Cory

    It's genuinely addictive <3

  38. Miguel Ayala

    Album on repeat, you guys went deep on this one, definitely over delivered. If we ever meet in person I would love to talk about the writing process for you guys, so many moving pieces, yet so flawless.

  39. TheLuisnunez
