Bright Eyes – Old Soul Song lyrics

Grey like new day leaks through the window
And some old song comes on the alarm clock radio
You walk the forty blocks to the middle
Of the place we heard where everything would be
And there was barracades to keep us off the street
But the crowd kept pushing forward
Until they swallowed the police
Yeah, they went wild, they went wild
They went wild, they went wild

We left before the dust had time to settle
And all the broken glass swept off the avenue
All the way home I held your camera like a bible
Just wishing so bad that it held some kind of truth

And I stood nervous next to you in the dark room
You dropped the paper in the water
And it all begins to bloom

Yeah, they go wild, they go wild
Yeah, they go wild, they go wild

Just when I get so lonesome I can't speak
I see some flowers on a hill side
Like a wall of new tvs

Yeah, they go wild, they go wild
They go wild, they go wild...
