Pinegrove - Aphasia

I really love this track and cant stop listening to this album right now. This is lyrically a wonderful composition and this acoustic version is a great raw rendition of the album presentation. For all of you who are wondering what Aphasia is... It is a language disorder that affects a person's ability to communicate. Clever use of the word in the track. Hope you enjoy :-)



so satisfied i said a lot of things tonight
so long aphasia & the ways it kept me hiding
it's not so much exactly all the words i used
it's more that i was somehow down to let them loose

so complicated i cant wait to get explaining
your listening distended out since i've been crying
so long aphasia & the ways it kept me hidden
so long to silent nerves & hesitant oblivion

you came & sent me out unfurling in the street
& i felt unprecedented confidence in speaking

stick around im thinking things'll be alright
newly delivered wont you live with me tonight

something tonight was such a letdown on my pride
it takes a part of me i don't got to take some things in stride
i'd pace around the place so quiet in myself
id wake the next & see my silence went unfelt

just when i thought i had this pattern sorted out
apparently my ventricles are full of doubt
nah things go wrong sometimes don't let it freak you out
but if i don't have you by me then i'll go underground!
nah but what you've got was in your reaches all along
plus one day you'll be reaching for me & i'll be gone
to help remind myself I wrote this little song

one day i won't need your love
one day i won't define myself by the one i'm thinkin of
& if one day i won't need it
one day you won't need it
