Creating a Disturbance

about

This is about how you look back at the riot of your youth once you're through with it, and wonder (sometimes) how you made it out alive.

lyrics

There's a disturbance in the valley while everyone's asleep and the first time that I met you there were fires in the street. Shouting expletives around corners and running through the night, while our parents opened bottles and kept the candles burning bright.

There were fireworks and tickertape and a final bloody hush, and a sharp familiar feeling like we might have had enough. The firemen and the open streets and locks on all the doors, the way we ran down east canal like beggars on all fours. I could have left you anytime along a thousand different paths, but the messes that we left behind shone through the broken glass.

We were ecstatic and elegiac, we were lifted aloft and crushed, and I'm not sure I ever told you but it never was enough. But when the stars hung there above us and when we stopped to breathe - every night a gift to you, a violent dream to me.

So take us away, finally. You have what you came here for.
So take us away, finally. You have what you came here for.
So take us away, finally. You have what you came here for.
