Vertical Horizon - Consolation Lyrics




It's all so bright
These blossoms on the
Pavement look so nice
It's sad to see them fall
But it's alright
I guess you got to go
Sometime

It's everyone
Thrown tendrils to the
Wind we reach for sun
No thought for what could
Be or damage done
Just to feel alive for once

Let's just sit a while and watch the cars go by
Maybe save the talking for another time
I just want to make it to a better day
I wonder where they go to make it all okay
Some consolation

Looking back
I wonder when the ties
Began to slack
You can't help the way
You grow and that's a fact
Been looking for the holes
But not the cracks

And so we sing
Raised voices to the sky,
Echoing
Just waiting for the cops to
Stop this thing
The inevitable reckoning

Let's just sit a while and watch the cars go by
Maybe save the talking for another time
I just want to make it to a better day
I wonder where they go to make it all okay
Some consolation
Some consolation
Give me consolation
A little bit of consolation

And the girls are fine
And the guys are fine
And the love is real
As the faith is blind

And the bills are paid
With the payment due
And the blood is red
But the heart is blue

And the mondays come
And the fridays go
And you believe and hope
But you never know

And still every scar
Has a job to do
To warn you about me
And to warn me about you, about you

Let's just sit a while and watch the cars go by
Maybe save the talking for another time
I just want to make it to a better day
I wonder where they go to make it all okay
Some consolation
Some consolation
Give us consolation
A little bit of consolation

Vertical Horizon Consolation Comments
  1. Andre Sihotang

    It is sad that a well-written song like this won't get into mainstream radio instead of those rubbish rap, r&b, and poppy muisc

  2. jMF My Music

    And the Mondays come. And the Fridays go.
    And still love. Love. LOVE. This song. This band.
    Added to my 20.This.Week Playlist! Check me out!

  3. Peter Grimm

    In the 80s, this band would have been HUUUUUUUGE. Alas, with today's music and everyone having an attention span of 3 seconds, bands like this that are about the deep cuts - the great pop RECORDS, get 63,000 plays, while youtubers playing videos of themselves playing video games get 60 million views.

  4. Andy Anderson

    I had the pleasure of vertical horizon coming to perform at my college in 2002. I absolutely love their music and performances.

    Simply fantastic.

  14. Astral Frost

    A man sits in the park with his family on a nice day, watching the cars pass by, bearing a look that doesn't match the moment because he's gripped in fear and feels more alone than he's ever felt, even though they're sitting right there, with all of the love in the world.

    This band has made a few changes over the years and still retains one of the best sounds out there, I Agree, they need a lot more recognition and this should be a top hit single. Love this Band !
