Angel Olsen Dance Slow Decades Lyrics

Thought I had a clue, it was passing by

Thought I had an answer, it was just a sigh

Thought I had a dream once – don’t remember why

Your voice cut straight through me, right down to my bones

Like a winter’s wind, it knocked out my soul

Thought I had some time here, left my watch at home

Thought I had ideas once, they were all on loan

Thought I conquered something, then it took me down

What I thought I heard clearly, it wasn’t sound

Thought I felt your heartbeat, it was just my counting

And to what thoughts will my life be amounting?

I can hear you crying and I am crying, too

The world might be lying, but so are you

I can see you dancing, if you’d just take the step

You might still have it in you, give yourself the benefit

And dance slow decades toward the sun

Even when you’re the only one

Don’t look around

It’s not right, it’s not wrong

Dance because you know the song

I dance because I know this one
