Future Islands - Back In The Tall Grass Lyrics




Home isn’t open
It’s like, when you get there
The tracks by the creek bed
The minnow’s the body
Crawdads with their heads down low
Back in the tall grass
Stinging my cattails oh!
Lokking for brother
It feels like winter
But it’s the heart of the summer
We can’t go swimming
As long as we slumber

Cuz we’re a long way from home
A long way from home
How did we get here?

One step takes me home
Two steps back on my own
Three skips to each stone
Four steps back and I’m gone

And I wanted you to know
I was thinking about you
And you look like a rose
Especially, when I’m a long way from home

A long way from home

How did we get here?
Back to the body
Words jump like salmon

One step takes me home
Two steps back on my own
Three skips to each stone
Four steps back and I’m gone

And I wanted you to know
I was thinking about you
And you look like a rose
Especially, when I’m a long way from home

In that backwater
Running through the woods
In that red water
In the mirror
Thinking of you

Spend all day just thinking of you
In the mirror thinking of you
Spend my days just thinking of you

And I wanted you to know
I was thinking about you
And you look like a rose
Especially, when I’m a long way from home

Long way from home
(Long way from home)
Long way from home
(Long way from home)
Long way from home…

    Home isn't open
    It's like, when you get here
    The tracks by the creek bed
    The minnow's the body
    Crawdads with their heads down low
    Back in the tall grass
    Stinging my cattails oh!
    Looking for brother
    It feels like winter
    But it's the heart of the summer
    We can't go swimming
    As long as we slumber

    Cuz we're a long way from home
    A long way from home
    How did we get here?

    One step takes me home
    Two steps back on my own
    Three skips to each stone
    Four steps back and I'm gone

    And I wanted you to know
    I was thinking about you
    And you look like a rose
    Especially, when I'm a long way from home

    A long way from home

    How did we get here?
    Back to the body
    Words jump like salmon

    One step takes me home
    Two steps back on my own
    Three skips to each stone
    Four steps back and I'm gone

    And I wanted you to know
    I was thinking about you
    And you look like a rose
    Especially, when I'm a long way from home

    In that backwater
    Running through the woods
    In that red water
    In the mirror
    Thinking of you

    Spend all day just thinking of you
    In the mirror thinking of you
    Spend my days just thinking of you

    And I wanted you to know
    I was thinking about you
    And you look like a rose
    Especially, when I'm a long way from home

    Long way from home
    (Long way from home)
    Long way from home
    (Long way from home)
    Long way from home...
