Brand New The Quiet Things That No One Ever Knows Lyrics

We saw the western coast

I saw the hospital

Nursed the shoreline like a wound

Reports of lover’s tryst

Were neither clear nor descript

We kept it safe and slow

The quiet things that no one ever knows

[Chorus: x2]

So keep the blood in your head

And keep your feet on the ground

If today’s the day it gets tired

Today’s the day we drop out

Gave up my body and bed

All for an empty hotel

Wasting words on lower cases and capitals

I contemplate the day we wed

Your friends are boring me to death

Your veil is ruined in the rain

By then it’s you I can do without

There’s nothing new to talk about

And though our kids are blessed

Their parents let them shoulder all the blame

[Chorus: x2]

So keep the blood in your head

And keep your feet on the ground

If today’s the day it gets tired

Today’s the day we drop out

Gave up my body and bed

All for an empty hotel

Wasting words on lower cases and capitals

[Bridge: x2]

I lie for only you

And I lie well…

Hallelu…

[Chorus: x2 (words from bridge continued in the background)]

So keep the blood in your head

And keep your feet on the ground

Today’s the day it gets tired

Today’s the day we drop out

Gave up my body and bed

All for an empty hotel

Wasting words on lower cases and capitals
