Manchester Orchestra - Where Have You Been? Lyrics




They call holidays an option for a reason
I heard you're coming back to life just for the fourth
I've been catching all your ghosts for every season
I pray to god you won't come back here anymore

do you pray with him, too?

They should deliver all my blessings
in small brown paper handbags near the porch
I wished I'd known that you were bleeding while I sat
and watched you reading with the lord

I read with him, too

when you look at me
I'll be digesting your legs
cause I can hardly see
what's in front of me these days
and those days, too.

I've got to take what I'm making
and turn it into something
I've got to take what I'm making
and turn it into something
for you
I've got to break what I'm making
and turn it into nothing
I've got to break what I'm making
and turn it into nothing
for you

God, where have you been?

    Throwback, remember seeing them with Brand New on The Devil and God tour. Jesse and Andy laying on stage closing with "Play Crack the Sky"....amazing show

    SubyRyan

    That was the tour I got introduced to MO! Brand New is one of my all time favorite bands, but I had no idea I would end up seeing an opening band that would become my all time favorite! I think I've only seen brand new twice and to this day have seen MO 10 times!

  34. Justa Dude

    I'm sorry, that was the bottle talking. I only said that because on my 1st birthday my father left the family to chase his dream of working in a chicken rodeo. I guess instead of handling the truth, I just blame the chickens. Deep down I've always had a weird respect for chickens, maybe it's just me trying to be like papa in the only way know how.

    Love you papa, come back home.

    Betty Webb

    Its been 4 years... Is he back?

    Greenlite

    pariah mouse

    @Ana Marie Meee too. This was one of my favourite albums to get wasted to... Well, ALL music was better drunk, for me, just because I could really FEEL it then.
    I miss the bottle, but my liver doesn't...

  35. Justa Dude
