Radical Face - Third Family Portrait Lyrics




It was the dead of winter
The cold was in our bones
And our shelves stood barren
As we had ever known

So our mother stands on the porch one evening
The silent crack in her stony mask
she looked up at the sky, and said "please"

And by the turn of summer we packed up all we owned
And with my mom and brothers we started for the coast
And I would count all the clouds on the way
And you and I would name them while the world around us changed
And I remember asking if the place we're moving would have more food
And my mother grew as distant as can be
and mouthed, "please"

So I, so tired eyes, pay no mind
The river of time will drown these days out

It was the year just after we stood and watched the sea
And my mom was smiling
No longer saying please

Radical Face Third Family Portrait Comments
  1. Fernando Adautto

    This music is for the most amazing people who can understand that real music comes along with stories not just the recent shit everyone follows nowadays, real music makes you feel something, Radical Face gets me everytime I listen to their music it's just poetry.

    Cayden

    Couldn't agree with you more.....Today's generation has no taste same shit over and over.

  2. Simbaholic

    I relate to this song so much right now. Maybe someday I'll be able to stop saying "please."

  3. gagi

    Guys your music is so powerful, its beyond possible... its beyond impossible, its in a place where possible and impossible meet to become - the possimpible...

    It was the dead of winter
    The cold was in our bones
    And our shelves stood barren
    As we had ever known

    So our mother stands on the porch one evening
    The silent crack in her stony mask
    she looked up at the sky, and said "please"

    And by the turn of summer we packed up all we owned
    And with my mom and brothers we started for the coast
    And I would count all the clouds on the way
    And you and I would name them while the world around us changed
    And I remember asking if the place we're moving would have more food
    And my mother grew as distant as can be
    and mouthed, "please"

    So I, so tired eyes, pay no mind
    The river of time will drown these days out

    It was the year just after we stood and watched the sea
    And my mom was smiling
    No longer saying please

    Really, you make the most amazing music... I never tire of this stuff. Please never stop making music like these albums.

    Oh I know that - obviously. But that doesn't mean he can't make more music of the same style, and imotion, with lyrics as haunting and amazing..
