A Song for Our Grandfathers

Future Islands

Singles


[Verse 1]
Been a long time in a low place
Surrounded by what I have made
Need to get away, get away from what relates
And what was done cause it's all over now
Through the woods, I come running to loose leaf
And carve my name in the lines, there's not a trace
I hear the ghost whisper and those old eyes watching me
But I feel safe
Grandfather looking over me

[Chorus]
He said, "Don't make them wait
Gotta go a long way
Let's be brave, don't make them wait
Nah, don't make them wait"

[Verse 2]
I sat down, with a coffee on my bent knee
Looking out at the burnt land looking back at me
These used to be green crops and high on a summer breeze
Now it's fallow fields and clear-cut barren weeds
They said that if I stared, the abyss would stare back at me
So I did and I felt it slowly creep in me
Save for the smoke that danced when I took a drag
It made me think about the way it all came to be
Grandmama watching over me

[Chorus]
And she said, "Don't make them wait
Gotta go a long way
Let's be brave, show them the way
Nah, don't make them wait"

[Bridge]
Don't make them wait, nah
Don't make them wait

[Outro]
I hear the ghost whisper
And those old eyes watching me
But I feel safe, I feel safe
