Kishi Bashi - Bright Whites Lyrics




Keya keya sorya douse ne
Keya keya sorya douse dame da
Yamerarenai yamerarenai
Douse damedakedo yamerarenai ne
Keya keya sorya douse ne
Keya keya sorya douse dame da
Taerarenai taerarenai
Douse damedakedo taerarenai ne

You and me at the edge of the world
With a pretty little smile for me to see, for me to see
New bright whites and a cage full of ice
And a naked little canopy to feed my disease

And if you're to smile at me
I could cry by land or sea

After you said that you like Big Red
I opened up my mind and skipped a beat
Cufflinks and hands in wrong places and faces
And creepy little movies made me weep

And if you're to say to me
What is mine is yours to keep

Well you know, I'll have to see
If all the stars aligned we could've solved the mystery
It's a partial fantasy
We're living in a land that went astray from history

You and me at the edge of the bed
Looking at the faded pictures for you to see and me to see
Murder and colonies, land without rivers
Raging in the middle of some sad destiny

Take one look to find my eyes
Safety's in your inner thigh

Well you know, I'll have to see
If all the stars aligned we could have solved the mystery
It's a partial fantasy
We're living in a land that went astray from history

    little hint of the shins , for me.

    alicia8496

    and jonsi.

    fandore12

    this song is using other tunes but refashions them into new context, im not saying that he stole any ones music, he is actually trying to achieve that affect so he did a really good job for what he did... im just trying to recall the original works he used to make this tune...

    Ivan Kisaragi

    reminds *me* alot of across the universe

    CatgOd

    Lana Del Bae, The Perks of Being a Wallflower

  30. Дима Шаповалов

    песня классная, клип фигня

  33. toro kuswan

    love it

  34. James Kaleb Wolfe

    at the very beginning of this music video, I thought I was watching an Empire of the Sun music video lol but it wasn't but it still not a bad song or a music video infact. Good job guys.

  35. Mly G. G.

    i love this song !!!! i heard it in the bad johnson movie

  40. Barry McCockiner

    Is that merril garbus?

  41. Josh Bruns

    Before I downloaded the song I would always wait through those Windows 8 commercials because I thought it was so good.

  42. 中村幸代

    I was singing in the clean program in Japan !

  43. JASON JAY

    q loco jajaja

  44. Occhio al ragno!!!1!!1

    i love this song :)

  45. Michael Nicholson

    This sounds like the Japanese Paul Mc.Cartney- Mc.Cartney should let him make a lot of money recording with him just for building him up as a legend.  It amazes me how so so many musicians seem and say they are heavily influenced by McCartney's solo work.  It's like Mc.Cartney is more influential than Lou Reed, Bob Dylan & U2 (for Protestant Rock) are combined.  Amazining, who would have thought it...

  46. coempa

    The minigame inside a music video is so much fun!

  47. Tyko Dagenhardt

    My new favorite song. Last favorite? Manchester - Kishi Bashi :)

  48. Yonatasha p

  51. Andrew Bergen

    omg how hard are these motherfuckers trying to be neutral milk hotel... if i wanted to listen to neutral milk hotel i would just fucking listen to them...

    Nick W

    Everything sounds similar to something else. Don't get your panties in a bunch. By the way i've heard neutral milk hotel and I don't really  get where you're coming from. 

  52. Taylor Zehr

    You mean idioms.

  53. Lyla Biddle

    Thats... A lot of puns

    0:11 long in the tooth
    0:12 black as one is painted 
    0:15 white elephant 
    0:18 spitting image
    0:19 eye candy
    0:21 hell in a basket; back seat driver
    0:23 riding shotgun
    0:28 candy corn
    0:36 piece of cake
    0:39 you can't have your cake and eat it too; don't cry over spilt milk
    0:47 when life gives you lemons
    0:56 love birds
    1:08 pretty as a picture
    1:21 the caged bird squawks
    1:22 wear your heart on your sleeve
    1:27 under the knife (not really sure though)
    1:28 red scent
    1:34 admit one
    1:40-1:44 she traded an arm and a leg
    1:52 unarmed
    1:57 golden ticket
    2:00 so close yet so far
    2:16 cat got your tongue
    2:21 sleeping on the job
    2:22 I have a bone to pick with you
    2:24 bite the hand that feeds you
    2:28 blue in the face
    2:29 clenched fist blessing; two faced
    2:30 bite the bullet
    2:36 face the truth
    2:38 the bees knees
    2:40 when pigs fly
    2:51 break a leg
    3:05 fit as a fiddle 
    3:23 key to my heart
    3:33 free as a bird
    3:40 hit two birds with one stone
    3:45 X marks the spot
    3:47 kick the bucket
    3:54 punch ticket
    4:05 i don't give a hoot OR one in the hand is worth two in the bush
    4:10 once in a silver (blue) moon

    1:34 is "fork it over" (forks on the ticket, and the seller is reluctant)

    Toimi

    Uvahash

    @zachary stein At 1:28 it "cost him a pretty penny" and at 1:34 its "a meal ticket", thats why he ate it

  64. Richard Depaola jr

    About the only thing done right by Microsoft is the commercials for Windows 8, great music chosen...even in Japan they chose great bands, Scandal being one of them. Great music.

  65. Richard Depaola jr

    Nowhere near the only one man...I thought it was a Paul McCartney song when I first heard it.

  81. 李斯

    dam this needs more views

  82. Johannes Brahms

    Perfecting song for a road trip!

  83. Matt Anderson

    Does anyone know who plays the part of the girl bird in the cage reaching for the cake?

  84. YadGadge

    "Key to my Heart" more likely.

  85. ImOnlySleeping420

    i solved the riddle!

  86. ImOnlySleeping420

    0:29 candy corn, 1:52 give me a hand, 1:57 golden ticket, 2:36 face the truth, 2:38 bees knees,

  87. 4cutiesmom

    I really don't get what's goin on!! But the the melody's good

  88. Bryan Tran

    2:50 break a leg?

  89. Cooper Stubb

    2:41 could be either "pigs fly" or "tossin' around the ol' pigskin" (playing American football). I guess you could say that 2:41 kills two birds with one stone (ha ha).

  90. MrjetArtist

    1:39 Cost me an arm and a leg
