Dawes - One Of Us Lyrics




Your mother finally took all of her money
And put it where her mouth used to be
Turning anybody's ear
About her friends that disappeared
And how she's sailing further out to sea

Your father's spending all of his vacation
Learning foreign names for all his fears
While spirits he's detected
From the data he's collected
Turned out to be just ringing in his ears

You look like one of them
But you talk like one of us
Everything they're telling you is wrong
You look like one of them
But you talk like one of us
Babe I think you know where you belong

Your sister's always mortally offended
At the mispronunciation of her name
Telling all her newest clients
That the "w" is silent
Before she sends them out the way they came

Your brother sends me all his latest poems
About his secret dreams of learning how to dance
He always adds a line for you
Asking when you're coming through
So he can tell his supervisor six months in advance

You look like one of them
But you talk like one of us
Everything they're telling you is wrong
You look like one of them
But you talk like one of us
Babe I think you know where you belong

Your old flame is still counting up his money
In a secret lair he built behind the shelf
Where he chants in repetition
"Lead me not into temptation"
I'm pretty sure he knows the way himself

You look like one of them
But you talk like one of us
Everything they're telling you is wrong
You look like one of them
But you talk like one of us
Babe I think you know where you belong

Dawes One Of Us Comments
  1. Michael Willis

    love this band

  2. 64wing

    This guy nails it every time he sings. Damn good band. Gotta go see them at the first chance I get!

    bhbrewster

    64wing You won’t regret it. They are fantastic live!

  3. Jenny Plaja

    This sounds a half step lower than the album....wonder why?

    Andy Pagan

    easier on their voices during such a long tour

    Jeff Baker

    Excellent question and answer. I often have that thought with live performances.

    David Lenchner

    A lot times when they are making the CD or album from the master tapes they either speed up the song or change the pitch for "more commercial" appeal. Doesn't always make sense.

  4. Daniel Faria

    really like these guys but this sounded terrible

  5. Baker Wainscoat

    YES YES YES YES

  6. Peanut Turner

    My favourite band of the past 3 years, and for my money one of the best live acts performing today. Go on, lads!!

  7. Drew Esrock

    They're so great. I saw them live a few weeks ago and it was just great

  8. RockStarEddie

    Keep bringing these guys back, they rock! They put on one hell of show each time I've seen them in Indianapolis too

    S T

    The Vogue?

    Francis Gleason

    Same here! Were you at the show back in March?

  9. Randy Miller III

    Ah, that sweet, sweet Laurel Canyon sound.

  10. John Lemus

    Not familiar with this band so I can't tell if the instruments are suppose to sound really muted or if they had an issue with the recording. Either way I was unable to enjoy this.

    Peanut Turner

    Check out the studio album then.

    John Lemus

    Actually, I checked out some of their songs on youtube, it kind of sounds like they want to incorporate some funk elements into the music while also trying to sound like every other hipster trash band out there. The vocals are just unpleasant. I can't understand a word that comes out of the vocalists mouth.

    Justin Perez

    This song is a bad representation of their previous four albums. Dawes are one of the best songwriting bands of this generation. Please listen to the first four albums to get a real taste of what they are about.

    S T

    Weird. I watched the show on TV and just watched this clip on my computer. I had no problems understanding the lyrics. ???

    David Subat

    John Lemus This does not even come close to what they sound like live. This song rocked live. It is television. You gotta see them live to form a true opinion.

  11. Studley De Muffin

    Expand Dong




    Oops, wrong song...
