Future Islands - Fall From Grace Lyrics




You were mine when I was young
Why does it take so long?
When you were here, it was warm
Now it's just a bitter storm

Now I'm older, turning white
Watching days turn into nights
Now I'm older and I'm grave
Tell me, what's been left to save?

Pardon my reflection
In the mirror, at your feet
Before you go, please tell me
"Was it all inside of me?"

"I'll leave here in the morning…"

You were mine when I was young
Why does it take so long?
Now I'm older and I'm grave
Tell me, "What's been left to save?"

I held you in the morning
In the doorway of the sea
"Pardon my reflection
It was all inside of me"

We slowly fall from grace
We slowly fade away...

Future Islands Fall From Grace Comments
  1. Yolanda

    The delicate touch of screaming is so perfect. One of my favorite songs by Future Islands. Incredible.

  2. USfireFan

    Anybody having some creative imagination on what that song is about? :)

    Haley Christine

    Came to this comment section looking for an answer too :(

    Olga Gurlukovich

    I think it is about a person who failed at a previous relationship with someone and he's realized that the person he loved has moved on and he waited too long to mend it.

  3. Blake Carver

    You were mine when I was young
    Why does it take so long?
    When you were here, it was warm
    Now it's just a bitter storm

    Now I'm older, turning white
    Watching days turn into nights
    Now I'm older and I'm grave
    Tell me, what's been left to save?

    Pardon my reflection
    In the mirror, at your feet
    Before you go, please tell me
    "Was it all inside of me?"

    "I'll leave here in the morning"
    ---
    You were mine when I was young
    Why does it take so long?
    Now I'm older and I'm grave
    Tell me, "what's been left to save?"

    I held you in the morning
    In the doorway of the sea
    "Pardon my reflection
    It was all inside of me."

    We slowly fall from grace
    We slowly fade away

  4. Matthew Litwin

    This is impressive. I cannot stress enough well this song fits this imagery.

  5. Serena Gimenez

  14. Stephen Davison

  15. Mark Nicholls

    Whoever edited this film to this song is a fucking genius.

    baddvd

    Mark Nicholls damn straight!

  16. VIII Elstaroth PaganGrinder VIII

    That chicken wing tho............xD

  17. Sharynne Le Brun

    I can count on one hand and another finger how many songs that I have played over and over and over and over and over in the last 43 years and this is one of those.
    It started with Mouldy Old Dough. Go figure!

  18. R. P. Miller

    The film is "Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf?" from 1966 starring Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor.

    baddvd

    Minor technicality, this masterpiece starred Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton ;)
    On another little fact of "Fame," that brought me back here....of all people, it was Liz that brought about the meeting of Bowie and Lennon. That's one freaky show. So sad, everything that has a beginning also has an end.

    enemieslist

    a living masterpiece. however, in saying that, this song is uncannily fitting

  19. Alaka'i

    This song is fucking delicious.......

    Alejandro Caamano

  20. baddvd

    A life without illusion intensifies its meaninglessness. Be very afraid, Martha...
