Approximate Sunlight Lyrics

by Bright Eyes

Used to dream of time machines
Now it's been said we're post everything
As a child, imagining
Neckties and coastlines

I've seen the show, man, what a sight
Drenched us in approximated sunlight
The crowd was small and mostly blind
But kind, you're too kind

Now you are how you were
When you were real
Now you are how you were
When you were real

There you go again on that circular trip
Lick the solar plexus of some LA shaman
I'm out of breath, I better sit
Been living hard, living

(All I do, all I do)
Is follow you
(All I do, all I do)
Just follow
(All I do, all I do)
Just follow you
(All I do)
Around

I wouldn't waste another thought
On what is fair and what is not
The Quinceaera dress she bought
Was unstitched with bullets

All the guests in the garden screamed
Women and tires squealing
Such opulence, such misery
Unwinding, unwinding

(All I do, all I do)
Is follow you
(All I do, all I do)
Just follow
(All I do, all I do)
Just follow you
(All I do, all I do)
Around

(All I do, all I do)
Is follow you
(All I do, all I do)
Just follow
(All I do, all I do)
Just follow you
(All I do)
Around

Now you are how you were
When you were real
