Hippo Campus - Traveler Lyrics




Lost to these linens
My tasteless affections
Are buried in the past
Feelings so fleeting
Yet never completing
The thoughts I quelled to last

It saw too
I saw to it, Anna
I saw too
I saw to it, Anna

I caught a line, I caught a line
Clinging to my own devices

Craving sleep when the evening comes
Strip me down to a heart and lungs
I always sang about ya
Terrified of how waking life walks
Frightened frame with a shirt that talks
I tripped over the moon about ya
Steadfast in nature
The scenes on my pages
Were all mirages now
Everything's vexing
I'm more unconvincing
Than both my parents now

Oh, oh, oh, I waited up for you
Oh, oh, oh, you said that you wanted me too
Oh, oh, oh, I waited up for you
Oh, oh, oh, twenty-one years for you
Twenty-one years for you

I woke with a headache
My bones and my body
Screamed, "Son, where the hell is your head?"
I reached for some water
To quench the fire
That's burning up in my bed
Haze like a fever
I fell like a dreamer
For sweet tea and lemonade
It clings to my T-shirt
It's loud and it lingers
Designed to suffocate

I light up to find
What I've known all this time
There's some beauty here yet
The folks in town
Have the kindest eyes
But you'll drown in the ways you set
I'll flee like that fever
Lost to that dreamer
All pale-faced for leaving be
Our time is a-coming
But my heart is humming
For a girl that I can't see

You're a traveler
Your heart is heavy now
You're a traveler
Fresh out of your mother's house

    AAAAAAAA Q DELICIA DE MUSICA 💙

  50. Halli Boman

    Incredible!!!!!

  51. cyborg noodle

    yES! hippo campus never fails to make amazing music

  52. chino samson

    Why is this band not big?

    Lily Graves

    chino samson cause people don't understand pure and real music

    Lily Graves

    But we do, and those four boys know it :))

    Aero Lynx

    Well nothing they have is quite as anthemic as say young the giant. The sad fact of the alternative music industry is that every song needs to be ready for an instant sing along, no matter its quality.

    asianemodude

    They performed "way it goes" on conan around a year ago and sadly they bombed. Or at least they could have done alot better judging from videos of their other live and acoustic performances. Being a rather unknown band, they should have performed "violet" if they wanted to garner attention despite it being an older song.

  53. A Bryson

    This is incredible! Thank you for greatly improving my day :)

  54. Diana Magdalena Ornelas Lizaran

    I was so stressed out for school and this just made me feel better 💖💖💖 everything about your songs is so lovely 🌸
    Love from Mexico
