Grizzly Bear – Slow Life lyrics

I think I know what's on your mind
A couple words, a great divide
Waiting in the wings, a small respite
Crowding up the foreground from behind

Even though you're the only one I see
It's the last catastrophe
Place your bets on chance and apathy

Take anything you want, it's fine
Keep up the slow life for the night
Don't take it back, I'll just deny
This constant noise all the time

Even though you're the only one I see
It's the last catastrophe
Place your bets on chance and apathy
From the wind in front of me

Even though you're the only I see
It's the last catastrophe
Place your bets on chance and apathy
From the wind in front of me

Even though you're the only I see

    It is a love song about someone falling in love with the wrong person. The person in love thinks it's a catastrophy. Even if your in love it's not always right to the poor pethetic person in love. The only thing they can show is apathy. Pretending they don't care to show their true feelings. Chances are you will never know. Words will not be spoken or there will be great divide. Take my heart it's fine.

    I think its about an ending of something they both thought was true love maybe once it was filled with lovely moments. They both know what their thinking because they both know each other it goes from fights words of great divide better left unsaid small moments of reprise when they can hold each other and feel the love they know its there but in the foreground just crowding up it makes such little affect to the reality even tho your the only one I see "it's the last catastrophe" the same old conclusion of that not working out placing it all on the chance and apathy false hopes of their love ever going to work again. Take anything you want just keep the slow life if you look at the meaning of slow life its to better your life better your relationships above the stresses of the world slowing your life down is good for you. But here its odd it says take anything you want and slow life isn't about taking but giving there for it gives a sense of all the things they gave up for little moments that on the end lead to these constant moments the noise saying in other words the opposite of the slow life obscuring it always but even then they would deny it not caring to see the facts even tho your the only one I see. It is the last catastrophe. I had a very similar thing happen but in the end I get a feeling they both are on the same page for a good while and at some point one will leave due to the same catastrophe that always happens even after all that effort witch in my life it did and man I gotta say it is a catastrophe a very awful one and that's the last thing I saw her tears her stare of regret just learn don't fool your self and don't be fooled together.
