Bright Eyes - The Movement Of A Hand Lyrics




You follow the footsteps echoes leading down a hall to a room.
There is music playing tiny bells with moving parts.
Here the shadows make things ugly, an effect quite undesirable.
The bold and yellow daylight grows like ivy across the wall
And it bounces off of the painted porcelain, tiny dancing doll.
Her body spins, as she pirouettes again, the world suddenly seems small.
On an off white, subtle morning you stretch your legs in the front seat.
And the road has made a vacuum where our voices used to be.
And you lay your head onto my shoulder, pour like water over me.
So if I just exist for the next ten minutes of this drive that would be fine.
And all these trees that line this curb would be rejoicing and alive.
Soon all the joy that pours from everything makes fountains of your eyes
Because you finally understand the movement of a hand waving good-bye.

    You follow the footsteps echoes leading down a hall to a room.
    There is music playing tiny bells with moving parts.
    Here the shadows make things ugly, an effect quite undesirable.
    The bold and yellow daylight grows like ivy across the wall
    And it bounces off of the painted porcelain, tiny dancing doll.
    Her body spins, as she pirouettes again, the world suddenly seems small.
    On an off white, subtle morning you stretch your legs in the front seat.
    And the road has made a vacuum where our voices used to be.
    And you lay your head onto my shoulder, pour like water over me.
    So if I just exist for the next ten minutes of this drive that would be fine.
    And all these trees that line this curb would be rejoicing and alive.
    Soon all the joy that pours from everything makes fountains of your eyes
    Because you finally understand the movement of a hand waving good-bye.

    This is an SPM rip off.

    What are all the keyboards on this. Sounds like a Mellotron and some kind of Rhodes or Wurlitzer. Really nice choices.

    You follow the footsteps
    Echoes leading down a hall to a room
    There is music playing
    Tiny bells with moving parts
    Here the shadows make things ugly
    An effect quite undesirable
    The bold and yellow daylight
    Grows like ivy across the wall
    And it bounces off of the painted porcelain
    Tiny dancing doll
    Her body spins, as she pirouettes again
    The world suddenly seems small


    On an off white, subtle morning
    You stretch your legs in the front seat
    And the road has made a vacuum
    Where our voices used to be
    And you lay your head onto my shoulder
    Pour like water over me
    So if I just exist for the next
    Ten minutes of this drive that would be fine
    And all these trees that line this curb
    Would be rejoicing and alive
    Soon all the joy that pours from everything
    Makes fountains of your eyes
    Because you finally understand
    The movement of a hand waving good-bye

    God him/herself put Conor Oberst and Mike Mogis together. There's no other explanation. These two were meant to make music together.

  6. EuphoniaPooch

    This one's got a groove. If a producer wanted an easy track off this album to remix into a rap beat off this album, it'd be this one....and the part at 3:27...I could listen to that for the length of this whole song.

  7. TheInvincibleCow

    This songs reminds me of those dreams where you finally get together with the person you love and you’re just sitting there in bliss and content with her head on your lap because finally you have that special someone in your life. Then you wake up and realize that the scenario you made up in your head is fake and feel hopeless for the rest of the day

  8. zzkpeaceufo

    Pure bliss

  9. Joji Miller

    this song is connected to "I won't ever be happy again" in a line he said "you never understand the motion of a hand waving you goodbye". In this song he says "You finally understand the movement of a hand waving goodbye"

  10. Amanda Catherine

  14. Maja Fenikowska

    Joji Miller

  16. whales

    So not only do you not own this music but you're profiting from it by making us watch an ad. Pretty messed up.

  17. Freddrick son of Dermott

    Another Beautie!

  18. Jared Kothrade

    this song really captures Conor's pain in his voice.
