lyrics

We sang a song to cut everybody in line
We stole from out the steward’s cart got drunk on wine She talked about the times to come and seeing sights And when I landed I was feeling drunk and I felt so alive
Our eyes were wide throughout our golden city tour
We walked around like you were mine and I was yours
We made love in the sheets of wind that swept your porch Then I left you alone when I was scared to face the pain in store
We raced along the highway in the drunken night
Your cocaine eyes reflected all the city lights
We sang the words never, never with all our might
The question still remains would I have died a happy man that night
I was just as sad as I ever was
Waking to the afternoon sun above
The feeling of aloneness twisting up my guts
And knowing that I’m halfway round the world from everyone I love
We drank and laughed in music and the winter sun
Then climbed the hills to get away from everyone
We sat in your apartment, there was nothing on
So we smoked cigarettes until the weight of life was lifted off
We watched him make the words up as they came to him
A story jumping off his caffeinated lips
A crowd that whooped and hollered on the hot pavement
I checked your watch said ‘fuck it’ I’m okay with being late again
We clocked 2000 miles across the whole country
Then everybody left to see their families
And I would walk the streets alone quite thoughtlessly
And smile to think that folks across the globe just might’ve thought of me
I was just as happy as I ever was
Staring through the window on a crowded bus
Looking to the sun poking through the dust
And knowing that its rays are warming each and every one of us
(And since then I have always been trying, to recapture that feeling of flying)
I was just as happy as I ever was
Staring through the window on a crowded bus

about

Geometrist Boston, Massachusetts

Geometrist came to fruition in the sweaty depths of a booze-soaked basement in Allston, MA. The self-proclaimed “weird” district of Boston served to be the perfect home for Geometrist to begin shaping their sound in late 2012. They have been creating folk-inspired indie-rock music together, and storming the Boston music scene with their brand of rock ever since. ... more
