Yo La Tengo - Ohm Lyrics

Sometimes the bad guys come out on top
Sometimes the good guys lose
We try not to lose our hearts, not to lose our minds

Sometimes the bad days maintain their grip
Sometimes the good days fade
But the rain today hurts the head to dream

But nothing ever stays the same
Nothing's explained
The higher we go, the longer we fly

'Cause this is it for all we know
So say goodnight to me
And lose no more time, no time
Resisting the flow

I heard you calling from far away
I thought I heard you cry
Having the voice to make it right
So I just cry

I felt her slipping, slipping away
Before I could even see
Tried once more, lost my grip, you were gone

But nothing ever stays the same
Nothing's explained
The longer it takes, the looser the ties

'Cause this is it for all we know
So say goodnight to me
And lose no more time, no time
Resisting the flow

Doo doo doo doo doo doo
Doo doo doo dood doo
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo

But nothing ever stays the same
Nothing's explained
The stronger the wind, the faster we'll fly

'Cause this is it for all we know
So say goodnight to me
And lose no more time
No time

Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow

Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow

Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow

Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow

Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow

Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow
Resisting the flow

    The doctor called Tuesday and he gave him the news, he said " Man, your allergic to the glue in your shoes."

  11. Floyd P. Tangeman

    why does this video suck so bad

  12. Ian Loeb

    Hey guys to all of you that are hating on them and saying they sound thirty years too old why do you think their album is titled Fade it's a sign they are breaking up soon

  13. Kim Delosier

    The 2nd one-chord song I taught my 7 yr old to play on the guitar, after Harry Nilson's 'She put the lime in the coconut.' For what it's worth -- which isn't much.

  14. Malcolm Thompson

    This is a really great song, but seriously: Could the "official video" *be* any stupider? "Oh look! We've heard of things! That you should also have heard of! Aren't we cool!"


    I didn't take it that way. I personally love to see what other bands and artists my favorite artists's are into. It's cool when you can relate to them because they like a lot of the same artists you do and you can also find a lot of great music you've never listened to as well.

  15. Posmonauta Rotoplas

    resisting the flow!

  24. qlvecchiopaiodijeans

    We don't care if it is the "official" video. It sucks! Why don't you allow also the 'tree video'? THAT WAS A VERY GOOD ONE! >.<

  25. MarxAviano

    What happened to the tree video?  This is stupid.

  26. Ivana G

    I keep pausing the video to see what they keep writing. 

  27. NETOMAN47

  29. N/A

    the song is fine and mellow whatever but this video was a mistake

  30. Magister Saxonides

    1:46 "Hairy Tony Iommi." Ha! :)

  31. TheMethodrone

    these dudes, every time..

  32. deathmetaldouglas69

    I hate to be a troll but this band needs a Nels Cline makeover really bad. Up to about the late 90's I loved them. Everything I've heard lately from them is just weak crap. This is so bad it is hard to comprehend.

    Mary Kazarian

    i feel like thats the point, they've gotten like 30 years behind them and this is the point


    @Mary Kazarian Then maybe they should just stop making records altogether. Why keep recording crap and ruin the legacy. When the same band that recorded "President Yo La Tengo", "Electr-O-Pura" and "I Can Hear the Hearts Beating As One" (my personal favorite) puts out total dogshit like "I Am Not Afraid of You and I Am Going to Beat Your Ass" you have to do a double take.

    Jay Sharp

    @deathmetaldouglas69 ha! I actually like that album. How can you not love Black Flowers??


    @***** The lyrics alone cannot save bad music. So there is not much reason to consider them.  


    @***** To me it is not just this song but most stuff I've heard from them sounds as if they are hardly trying these days. They seem to me like they are trying to please younger hipsters and are proud to call themselves "indie rock" when the whole meaning of it has changed. I get the impression they are more image conscious with some of these recent band photos.

    For me what made Yo La Tengo a really good band were a few things. First off  Ira's guitar playing. He had it going on but I think there was some room for improvement. When the 90's ended it is like he went backwards. Right near the end of that decade his Strat tone, the feedback, and his choice of notes for a solo were very special. I loved his voice and songs as well. Second was Georgia's lovey ballads. Those can be some of the best examples of songwriting. Third the chemistry once James joined the band. They could have become the best rock band in America and blew it. Trying to be cool instead of good.

  33. gazfunk

    Great tune but it's all too much for me to take. For me to take it's all too much.
