Grizzly Bear – Two Weeks lyrics

Save up all the days
A routine malaise
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay

Would you always
Maybe sometimes
Make it easy
Take your time

Think of all the ways
Momentary phase
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay

Every time you try
Quarter half the mile
Just like yesterday
I told you I would stay

Would you always
Maybe sometimes
Make it easy
Take your time

    Don't you think this song could have another meaning? In my opinion, it's a song about society, about bored people who are fed up with their routine lives. Who just think about the past to keep going, who believe in happiness (or religion) to go on. To me, this song is about a person who tries to give courage to another one (friend or lover). But it's just a translation from a French chick, so.

    When I first heard this song, I didn't think too much into it. It sounded kind of like a love song from an old variety show. However, it is fairly modern, which makes it weird. I like weird. The more I listened, the more I paid attention to the lyrics, and let the overall song sink into my soul. (So to speak). For awhile, I interpreted it like most seem to do. "It's a love song, that's either about a new relationship dealing with the struggles of moving too fast, or an old complicated one, dealing with its own ongoing struggles." Blah! Blah! Blah! My opinion now has changed. Keep in mind, it's just an OPINION. I think he's singing to himself. This isn't a song to some bitter, confused, insecure girl. Nor is it to a friend or colleague. He's singing to himself... It's not about anything in particular, it's just about his life in general. It's kind of like a beg for mercy for one's self. He's over analyzing things. He's failing at things. He's beating himself up. He's depressed. He's anxious. However... He's tired of being this way, so he's mowing it over in his head, and asking himself to try and take it easy. "Look at all the days you've been sad an scared. Could you maybe try and take things easy? Life goes on..." "Look at all the scenarios from the past that you blew out of proportion. They weren't even a big deal. Could you maybe not do that? Life goes on..." "Sometimes you try at something, and sometimes you fail. Could you not beat yourself up over a frivolous failure? Life goes on..." In the grand scheme of it all, I interpret the song, as being a kind of mellow approach to asking one's self to simply take things easy, for one's own mental well being. I didn't write it, though... So it could very well be a love song.

    Its about a new relationship. Directed to the one who is uneasy and unsure about where they stand. And the other reassuring them it's okay and that they should slowly move forward with less confusion. "the routine malasie" is the inevitable uncertainty of a new found affection "quarter-half the mile" is about takig it too far too far and say they should not worry so much everything else is pretty self explanatory if taken in this conetxt.

    Signed up just to say I really liked agneslegnou's take on the song. The "I told you I would stay" made me instantly think love song, but to me the bored with the routine idea makes more sense. It actually carries a lot of meaning for me because I started skateboarding 6 months ago and it changed my life for the better, and this song was in one of the first skate videos I watched.

    This is a love song. I believe it is about someone who is in love with someone and they keep tellin the person " i told you I would stay" but the other person is wary so is keeping their distance or just making the possibility of a relationship harder. When he sings " maybe sometimes, make it easy, take your time" hes saying can you let up a bit? Look, I'm still here, I haven't gone anywhere. And I'm not going to, I'm here to stay.
