Bird, Andrew - Valleys Of The Young Lyrics




Do you need a reason
We should commit treason
And bring into this world a son

And leave the valleys of the young
Valleys of the young
Valleys of brunch and tedium

Well, your friends will become strange to you
Just as you will become strange to them
You'll live across a great divide
And the problems that seem like luxuries
They're off getting stoned and hugging trees
All the things you'll be forsaking
Still our hearts are constantly breaking

From their cradle to our grave
Is it selfish, or is it brave?

Nana nanananana
Nananana
Nananana nanana

Do you need a reason we've
Been making all to become three
And believe in this holy valley

Land of brunch and misery
I'm living on
The valleys of the young

Now you're going on 64
Driving down 65, to the hospital
To see if your adult son will survive or not
After taking those pills in the parking lot
You know the one behind the Marriott
This is a dream you won't be waking
Still our hearts are constantly breaking

From their cradle to our grave
Is it selfish, is it brave?
From their cradle to our grave
Is it selfish or is it brave?

    Andrew Bird is one of the world's greatest hidden secrets. He sure is gifted.

  10. Daniel Hazieq

    what genre is this song? indie country ?

  11. Pineapple Pioneer

    " He's a good person , he wanted me before I was smart" that line in the trailer accompanied by the part of the song that plays and the image of the little girl holding Chris Evans face while he's on his knees affects me , they got it just right.

  12. dadedo awa

    Justin Y

    I think it's great his music is making its way into more things like this. Movie trailers and TV shows - all the better!

    Strah Treped

    bruh u seen my phone

    I love how since you also spotted it you consider it a "great observation"

  29. Majoracan King

    Beautiful

  30. Charlotte Dennison

    Saw this whole album live! :) <3

  31. MonergistTea

    This is a good album, even though in terms of enjoyment it's not my personal favorite. But this track is my favorite of the record, and I love the background sounds like at 0:58 and the break at 1:56. Kind of a cheesy thing to say, but almost like a tribute (because of the different way it sounds) to Birdman's whistling throughout the years.

  32. Buzz Kill

    I cannot wait fur the new album!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  33. Itzel Luna

    love it

  34. ageofthoughts

    This album better not be some elaborate April fools joke!

    Amphie

    +ageofthoughts That's what I've been waiting for...crushing disappointment.

  35. Saganist420

    Just so you know... your new album is the thing that i look forward the most in life at the moment.

  36. CriterionCafe

    Best single yet from this album

  37. Sam Smith
