Yo La Tengo - Forever Lyrics

Nights are getting slower
Days are flying by
Hold me forever
Hold on while we cry

I looked everywhere for you
Just like yesterday
Look for you in my memories
You're far far away
And we beat on

Laugh away the bad times
Lie about what's to come
The less said, the better
Let's drink until we're dumb

One minute later
Than a minute ago
Tomorrow is forever
Let's pretend that we don't know
And we beat on

Nights are getting slower
The days, the days are flying by
Listening to the noise of the street
Sweep the tears aside

Shaken by the feeling
Shaken, misdirected, waylaid
Did I take it for granted
Now it's far far away
And we beat on

    hi. i had a heart attack while listening to you guys play in dublin some years ago, the guitarist was writhing like a snake,just got carried so carried away....now several years later ,my girl who was with me at the time and nourished me back to here and now, has been diagnosed with cancer of the brain and i just dropped in to be re-energised by truthful music playing ,thanks for hoisting that rag.

  17. Cristian Garcia

    This band keeps appearing in my Spotify "created for you". I don`t know how to tell them that I don`t like this band.

  18. Jame's Stuff

    Leonard Cohen and Bourdain had a child......

  21. Ay! Proyecto

    alguien sabe como se llama el aparatito que usa en el guitarra para crear ese sonido atmosphere. el que vibra.

  22. Buzza Wuzza

    Sometimes I wish they'd slow the tempos down and just let the music drift a little.

  23. jonnymac481

    I love the delicate vocal over the merge of sounds coming from these guys, superb work and great use of knowing when to play and when not too.

    It's an EBow... an electromagnetic device designed to emulate the bowing of a stringed instrument... though it brings out a lot of the harmonic overtones in the process. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/EBow

    Bob Dylan ??? Is back???

  92. unarrosalforn

    La magia de la música pululando
