Julien Baker - Something Lyrics




I know you're sleeping by now
But I'm still up walking around
The walls of my skull bend backwards
And in like a labyrinth

I knew I was wasting my time
Keep myself awake at night
Cause whenever I close my eyes
I'm chasing your tail lights
In the dark
In the dark
In the dark

I know you left hours ago
I still haven't moved yet
I knew you were gone months ago
But I can't think of anyone else

I should have said something, something, something
But I couldn't find something to say
So I just said nothing, nothing, nothing
Sat and watched you drive away

And I just let the parking lot swallow me up
Choking your tires, and kicking up dust
Asking aloud why you're leaving
But the pavement won't answer me

And I just let the silence swallow me up
The ring in my ears tastes like blood
Asking aloud why you're leaving
But the pavement won't answer me

And I know I meant nothing, nothing to you
But I thought I meant something, something, something
But I just said nothing, said nothing, said nothing
Sat and watched you drive away

Watched you said nothing, said nothing, said nothing
I can't think of anyone, anyone else
I can't think of anyone, anyone else
I can't think of anyone, anyone else
I won't think of anyone else

    Respawn Studios thanks so much for the kind comment!

  13. Alab4ster

    I found this video from my recommended section on some random 2:00 AM in 2016. I was wasted as hell off a break up and this performance destroyed me. I watched it four, maybe five times in a row. I've now seen Julien Baker live twice (and both shows were incredible) and moved on from those dark days, but I'll always be thankful that I ended up on this channel on that night to discover this amazing artist. Thanks for the incredible live audio quality and video production for this song :).

    OurVinyl

    Thank you so very much for the kind words, it' hearing comments like this that inspire us to keep at it! So happy you found our channel :)

  14. Norman Michalek

    gives me goosebumps. beautiful song!

  15. Pollock

    Even thought I am not feeling sad at all - listening to this one brings me down to me deepest feelings. Not sad or anything else, just - feelings. This tune is so true, so pure. Thats what people call "talent" to just be honest within your music.

  16. Aidan

    She’s finally getting some recognition 💙

  17. Justin Billie

    I miss you more and more each day... I hope you're doing great.

  18. Alexander Fonseca

    I know this is old but I keep coming here from time to time and I must say that you guys made a masterpiece on this. Perfect sound and the cinematography that just takes my breath away. Even the little hair flying attached to the microphone cable looks like poetry against that sunlight.
    Kudos. Your work here is timeless.

  19. Alexandra Richter

    This is goddamn magical ✨

  20. dazeigla

    1500 plays are on me. fantastic production from artist, video and sound engineer!!!

  21. Alexander Hoellein

    This song was there for me through the heartbreak. Just wrapped me in its warm, empathetic arms of understanding.

  22. J A.

    I want to beat up whoever hurt her and shake that fuckers hand for being the cause of this beautiful tune.😊

  23. Shigihara san

  29. A Quiet Place

    Which maniacal psychopath left this sweet little chestnut?

  30. the potent pineal

    I can feel my heart beat in my ear when I listen to this song

  31. Unoriginal Memester

    The way she sounds legitimately disappointed that the pavement won’t answer her... Wow, I love this person and hope the best for her.

    Arctic Ice

    Damn you worded that good.

  32. David Fregoli

    That was really something...

  33. Jason

    Amazing! You can feel the pain in her voice.

  34. msflyingfox

    I saw her in Toronto in 2016, she was an opening act for some other band. Other people were taking during her performance and not really paying attention, but for me time stood still. Still mesmerised by her.

  35. Wavey K

    Sat and watched you drive away

  36. Federico Corucci

    Meraviglioso

  37. Joshua D.

    Asking why are you leaving? Again?

    ❤ this song

  50. jota erre

    *julien baker claps*
    me: omg she's so talented <3

  51. Krystal Botchen

    This song was released when i was pregnant with my son. I would be driving around listening to it, singing to myself, singing to him. As the months went on my son's father grew distant. 2yrs later I found out he was having an affair at the time. This is so fucking fitting. I think in some ways I just always knew

  52. HurbleGurble

    beautiful <3

  53. Caroline A

    Thankyou.

  54. Nex Telum

    The pain.........normally i would say you had to experience it it to know it....but dang the song explains it so well and her voice, makes me want to find the guy that caused this song to be sung. Stay strong. Always speak up, or you will never know what coulda been. Been here along time, i got broken like this, lost it all.

  55. paco baco

    thanks for these beautifull sound and picture, she really deserve it ;)

  56. KrackaJax

    Can't stop coming back here. This is a masterpiece. Vocals. Visuals. Everything. Feels man.

  57. E D I T Z Z Z

    2018 Anyone!!!???

  58. May your swords stay sharp! (mysss29)

    any performance in which the musician is crying...is probably pretty powerful. <3

  59. danman6669

    Julien's crying at the end really makes the song. A person can tell that this song wasn't written to make money. It was real, genuine emotion and the world needs more songwriters like that today.

  60. Art Gr

    I cannot stop listening this song.

  61. Kristian W. Murphy

    Julien is such a terrific singer and guitarist

  62. Mathias Manser

    sometimes it's hard to speak when you're overcome with emotions that you've never known you had...

  63. Mathias Manser

    absolutely beautiful!

  64. Coraline

    She’s such an amazing musician and I have the biggest crush on her

  65. KUWUL

    crying a lot rn ;_;

  66. Kevin Graham

    July 2018...still.listening

  67. jomel lara

    Great land scape, love the song

  68. KrackaJax

    Beautiful

  69. dmithy

    with a few tweaks someone could sing this from the perspective of the person who left. leaving isn't easy and it's often not sung about.

    OurVinyl

    Interesting idea there...

  70. Diplo Vendredaï Club

    "Asking aloud why you're leaving
    But the pavement won't answer me"... #tragedy in motion...

  71. Diplo Vendredaï Club

    #awsome... langourous #confession dropped from deep intimacy with heavy #honesty. J'adore ♥
    with kisses and thoughts from France ;)

  72. end moraine

    I honestly think this saved my 3 and a half year relationship, which is 5 and a half years strong now. You're so perfect. Unf.

  73. bii leto

    This is my favourite Julien song. I love her talent tremendously.

  74. Joe

    Thanks for making my day better:}

  75. Hijodeganas1

    I want Julien Baker to write the soundtrack for every major motion picture drama from here on out.

  76. danman6669

    I've never seen her cry. She always seems so happy. I know her music is melancholy, which is why I love her and her music so much, but I never knew that she actually showed emotion on stage. She has just gained even more respect from me.

  77. Shelby Willis

    This one is my favorite of hers.

  78. Kyle Fugere

    Oh my god you are so good. Im so glad my girlfriend showed me this.

  79. theWARMJET

    She has something going on, though, i cant stand her voice

  80. HAMDI

    sorry, i want too introduct indonesian music local :D

  81. bii leto

    Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful.

  82. Zac Moran

    This is the most beautiful song I have ever heard in my life. It fucks me up so much everytime. Thank you so much for this Julien you are incredible. please keep making music like this, it is like taking tainted sunglasses of for the first time, it is like starring all your insecurities in the face at once and blowing them a kiss. Thankyou! you are amazing.

  83. Ke'an Consolacion

    that spiderweb on the mic stand..

  84. Bloodyy_Mari

    It's been a while since a song made me cry...

  85. graham dunk

    huh? was that real?! omg

  86. Asia Boselli

    i love the way she moves

  87. Mikko Angelo Agas

    how can you, as an artist, be so dragged in by a song that it droves you to tears? that's just amazing.

    Luke Official

    Because most of her songs is about her pain. Maybe she is still struggling against this. I hope she can win bravely

  88. Daniel Haliscak

    Amazing!

  89. Colin Kirk

    Loved Julien Baker since the first time I herd her on Audio Tree Live.
