José González Cycling Trivialities

Too blind to know your best

Hurrying through the forks without regrets

Different now, every step feels like a mile

All the lights seem to flash and pass you by

So how’s it gonna be

When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

But don’t know which way to turn

Every trifle becoming big concerns

All this time you were chasing dreams

Without knowing what you wanted them to mean

So how’s it gonna be

When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

So how’s it gonna be

When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

Who cares in a hundred years from now

All your small steps, all your shitty clouds

Who cares in a hundred years from now

Who’ll remember all the players

Who’ll remember all the clowns

So how’s it gonna be

When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

So where is this leaving me

When it all comes down, cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities

Cycling trivialities

José González Crosses

Don’t you know that I’ll be around to guide you

Through your weakest moments to leave them behind you

Returning nightmares only shadows

We’ll cast some light and you’ll be alright

We’ll cast some light and you’ll be alright for now

Crosses all over,

Heavy on your shoulders

The sirens inside you

Waiting to step forward

Disturbing silence darkens your sight

We’ll cast some light and you’ll be alright

We’ll cast some light and you’ll be alright for now

Crosses all over the boulevard [4x]

The streets outside your window over-flooded

People staring. They know you’ve been broken

Repeatedly reminded by the looks on their faces

Ignore them tonight and you’ll be alright

We’ll cast some light and you’ll be alright

José González #9 Dream

So long ago

Wasn’t a dream

Wasn’t just a dream

I know, yes, I know

It seems so very real

It seems so real to me

To walk down the street

Through the acres of dreams

I thought I could hear

Hear, hear, hear

Someone call out my name

As it started to rain

To stand still seemed to strange

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

Dream, dream away

Magic in the air

It’s magic in the air now

I believe, yes, I believe

All I cannot say

What more can I say

On the river of sound

Through we go round and round

I thought if you

Feel, feel, feel

Music touching my soul

Something wants, I call

Spent time once I fall

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

Out of a goggle you stand still

You sing out to me in sorrow

Something on the side

Screaming was the calling

Someone call out my name

As it started to rain

To stand still seemed to strange

José González Abram

Abram, either wake up or go to bed

You’re sleepwalking with a delirious head

You were programmed a long, long, long time ago

Your stories are old, old and your acclimation is slow

Oh, go to sleep

Not much of what you say makes any sense

Cook up some myths then ask for obedience

Even though you mean well, well most of the time

You’ve aided delusion and created bias in our minds

Oh, go to sleep

José González Heartbeats

[The Knife cover]

One night to be confused

One night to speed up truth

We had a promise made

Four hands and then away

Both under influence

We had divine scent

To know what to say

Mind is a razor blade

To call for hands of above

To lean on

Wouldn’t be good enough

For me, no

One night of magic rush

The start a simple touch

One night to push and scream

And then relief

Ten days of perfect tunes

The colors red and blue

We had a promise made

We were in love

To call for hands of above

To lean on

Wouldn’t be good enough

For me, no

To call for hands of above

To lean on

Wouldn’t be good enough

And you, you knew the hand of the devil

And you, kept us awake with wolf teeth

Sharing different heartbeats

In one night

To call for hands of above

To lean on

Wouldn’t be good enough

For me, no

To call for hands of above

To lean on

Wouldn’t be good enough

José González Deadweight On Velveteen

Deadweight on velveteen

It’s retained emptiness

It’s not what it seems

Uncover the mystery

Tell everyone what you see

It’s not what it seems

Vulgar when brought to light

Betray the image

There’s nothing between the sheets

It’s not what it seems

But deadweight on velveteen

Vulgar when brought to light

Vulgar the lie

José González Fold

Taking time

To walk down all the aisles

Turning over every stone

Building new rulers but still haven’t burnt any old

Please don’t let me down this time

I’ve come a long way to just fall back into line

Keep both feet on a ground

While I change the wings

I promise one day I’ll be coming around

From my cloud to see what it’s all about

Please don’t let me down this time

I’ve come a long way to just fall back into line

Please hold me back

If I tend to lose it and steer into old tracks

Please don’t let me down this time

I’ve come a long way to just fall back into line

José González Broken Arrows

Broken arrows along the shore

Seems you intended to come back for more

It was summerlove leave this town

It’s too cold to bathe and the leaves are brown

Summerlove left this town

It was too cold to bathe and the leaves turned brown

The sun went down

And with it the love we found

That’s the way things are sometimes

Most of the time
