Gus Dapperton - Sockboy Lyrics




Repose my ghost believer
We hold a broke demeanor
I'm always cold and so I don't
Remotely hope to ease her
Repose my ghost believer
We won't assault and siege you
She's always alone and so I won't
Provoke and poke to please her

You bet that Burberry lingers
Where's your wallet, you got change to call it
Your imaginary love lives
Frame to wall and can't refrain from falling
You bet that Burberry lingers
Where's your wallet, you got change to call it
Your imaginary love lives
Frame to wall and can't refrain from falling

Repose my fair pretender
We would not dare offend you
I'm always scared and so I wear
A mug that tugs to tend her
Repose my fair pretender
We hold like rare defenders
I'm never there and so I swear
A life with strife to adventure

You bet that Burberry lingers
Where's your wallet, you got change to call it
Your imaginary love lives
Frame to wall and can't refrain from falling
You bet that Burberry lingers
Where's your wallet, you got change to call it
Your imaginary love lives
Frame to wall and can't refrain from falling

From falling
From falling
From falling
From falling

Repose my ghost believer
We hold a broke demeanor
I'm always cold and so I won't
Remotely hope to ease her again
I've tried before the silence
Remains a power I repent
I'm not your hero but I'm here

    definitely my favourite of this album. It's absolutely incredible to me how your music can make you wanna dance, cry, sing, laugh, fuck, be alone or together, talk or keep silenced at the same time. Listening to your music while riding through the huge flowerfields in the Netherlands feels like a transformation into a butterfly. I've been a fan from day 1 (said that for social acceptance), but never got to go to one of your shows yet. I live in Germany, in Bielefeld, but like don't have the money to drive to other towns to go to concerts.

    Now the important stuff:
    First, the lyrics. I'm German and Dutch, so English is not my original language, that's why I often don't understand all of your lyrics, But what I do understand are the most poetical and beautiful words I've ever heard. Basically, the main situation in these lyrics (warning: it's my interpretation and may be completely wrong so let me all know about yours please) shows a boy - probably Sockboy- who somehow made up a hard shell so he won't get hurt anymore, a common situation that happens to a lot of us, and a girl who is or is going to suffer under his disability to have feelings for someone again. That's probably the way that she's going to turn into a Sockboy too, like the devil's circle. A situation a lot of artists sing about, but until now I found nobody who can describe it more accurate and beadutiful than you can.
    Also, the song reminds me if the concept that "the only thing worse than feeling pain is feeling nothing", because even if the suffering of the girl seems really bad, it is nothing in comparison to knowing you can't feel like you once did anymore.

    Now the music: it reminds me of so much beautiful songs I knew for a lifetime, but somehow still delivers this "Gus-type" of music. Also, I could hear this piece of art literally all the time, everywhere.

    (I promise Im gonna stop soon but I just cant hold it back)

    Here's my last point why I love this song so much:
    I just found out the very best situation to listen to it. Of course I showed your music to a lot of my friends, and now like my whole friendgroup adores it. So we were all really excited about the album.

    Right now, we came to the end of a party at a friend, at this point we all start to get sober again and talk about feelings and stuff, watching the sunrise and being in complete peace.

    We talked the whole time, but when I played this song, everybody stayed in silence.


    Thank you for all this wonderful artwork, Gus. I hope I'm gonna meet you one day.

    (also if you're interested I performed my all-time-favourite "moodna once with grace" of yours on a tiny stage, it's on my channel if someone would like to listen to a 16-year-old whose only escape of life is singing with closed eyes :))

    These are the kind of comments im looking for when i scroll down to the comments section. English is not my native language either, spanish is, and honestly i didn't know how to interpret (?? I guess) the song and your interpretation gave me some clues. Gus' music is magical and comfy

  21. ur mom's name

  22. Ratthabol Suadmalai

    i like every song in this album, and i like this song the most. some songs took a few listens for me to fully appreciate, but while listening to this album for the first time, i put this song on repeat over night before i went to the next track.

  23. Wasted Druid

    I can't get the chorus of this song out of my head.. Gus is a fuckin wizard my dudes.

    Marty Woodruff

    Jack James Is that supposed to be an insult? That is so fucking stupid. What, can't think of anything else to say beside "his voice is shitty"? No one asked for you opinion. You seem like the type anyway, so I'm not surprised. You're just annoying and saying that is making you sound like an idiot. Do yourself a favor and get a life since you currently don't have one. If I climbed up to your ego and jumped down your brain cells, I'd break a bone. So just shut up, dude. It's just making you look dumb.

    Marty Woodruff

    Moonman What can't think of anything of anything else to say? "Gay" is the best you've got? Just shut up.

    Repouso meu fantasma fiel
    Nós temos um comportamento quebrado
    Eu estou sempre com frio então eu não
    Espero sequer remotamente aliviá-la
    Repouso meu fantasma fiel
    Nós não vamos atacar você ou cercar você.
    Ela está sempre sozinha então eu não vou
    Provocar ou empurrar ninguém para agradá-la.

    Você aposta que a capa de chuva está
    Onde está a sua carteira, você tem que mudar para ligar
    Seu amor imaginário vive
    No quadro da parede e não pode evitar de cair.
    Você aposta que a capa de chuva está
    Onde está a sua carteira, você tem que mudar para ligar
    Seu amor imaginário vive
    No quadro da parede e não pode evitar de cair.

    Repouso meu fingimento justo
    Nós não ousamos te ofender
    Eu estou sempre com medo e então eu uso
    Uma caneca que puxo para cuidar dela
    Repouso meu fingimento justo
    Nós nos seguramos como raros defensores
    Eu nunca estou lá, mas então eu juro
    Uma vida com conflitos e aventuras

    Você aposta que a capa de chuva está
    Onde está a sua carteira, você tem que mudar para ligar
    Seu amor imaginário vive
    No quadro da parede e não pode evitar de cair.
    Você aposta que a capa de chuva está
    Onde está a sua carteira, você tem que mudar para ligar
    Seu amor imaginário vive
    No quadro da parede e não pode evitar de cair.

    De cair
    De cair
    De cair
    De cair

    Repouso meu fantasma fiel
    Nós temos um comportamento falido
    Estou sempre com frio então eu não vou
    Esperar remotamente para aliviá-la novamente
    Eu tentei o silêncio antes
    Ainda é um poder do qual me arrependo.
    Eu não sou seu herói, mas estou aqui


    (Acho que essa aqui é sobre amizades na infância, o Gus parece estar cantando sobre um ou dois garotos que decidem proteger uma garota de algo e se tornam seus amigos, apesar de eles serem meio covardes e ela meio distante, os temas tratados parecem ser bem lúdicos e bobinhos)

    This is the growlers meets Mac demarco

    Heavy Drizzle

    That's crazy, I literally thought the same exact thing from that intro! It also reminded me a lot of khruangbin, if you like Mac, gus, and the growers you'll probably enjoy them alot

    one time in 5th grade i sat next to this girl who had just transferred in from a different school. she took off her shoes and socks underneath the desk and i picked em up and asked her to put em back on. she didn't, so i threw one out of the window and held the other one hostage. i dont know what i was trying to achieve because i wanted her to put the socks back on but she couldnt do that if i threw one out of the window and held one hostage. i became known as the resident sockboy and i still have that sock because she wouldnt take her socks back from me and i'm stubborn or something
