Kurt Vile - Goldtone Lyrics




Sometimes when I get in my zone, you'd think I was stoned
But I never as they say, touched the stuff

I might be adrift, but I'm still alert
Concentrate my hurt into a gold tone
Golden tones

In the night when all hibernates I stay awake
Searching the deep, dark depths of my soul tone
Golden tones

Gold tones

There's a place in my heart for all of my friends
Some have stepped out but some check back in

Been livin' my life on the run, from day one
Every day is "hey, so are they"

But if I been lookin' back today
Lookin' back in gold tones

Yeah, yeah

In the night when all hibernates I stay awake
Searching the deep, dark depths of my soul tone
Golden tones

Yeah, yeah

I been all around, been up and down
This round world that is always turning

Til some day or so they say
When a-hey, hey, I wanna hear a gold tone

Sometimes as I'm floating away I wish I could stay
Then I arrive among the dropping flies

There's in my heart, been trying to locate
It's somewhere within and it's for them that is gold tones

Yeah, yeah

In the night when all hibernates I stay awake
Searching the deep, dark depths of my soul tone
Golden tones

Sometimes when I get in my zone, you'd think I was stoned
But I never as they say, touched the stuff

I might be adrift, but I'm still alert
Concentrate my hurt into a gold tone

Yeah, yeah

    Sometimes when I get in my zone, you'd think I was stoned
    But I never as they say, touched the stuff
    I might be adrift, but I'm still alert
    Concentrate my hurt into a gold tone
    Golden tones
    In the night when all hibernates I stay awake
    Searching the deep, dark depths of my soul tone
    Golden tones
    Gold tones
    There's a place in my heart for all of my friends
    Some have stepped out but some check back in
    Been livin' my life on the run, from day one
    Every day is "hey, so are they"
    But if I been lookin' back today
    Lookin' back in gold tones
    Yeah, yeah
    In the night when all hibernates I stay awake
    Searching the deep, dark depths of my soul tone
    Golden tones
    Yeah, yeah
    I been all around, been up and down
    This round world that is always turning
    Til some…

  9. Leandro de Souza Rocha

  10. die grenze

    favorite one on the record, and what a record it is.

  11. Shawn Carlucci

    Kurt vile is something else, a childish prodigy of our time no doubt

    Switch-No-Comply

    That's musical and skating progression in a nutshell.....can truly be innovated and moved forward by freak prodigies who can redefine the limits

  12. Keishapc

    I wish it longer...I love to drift off to sleep to this song.

  13. skateinpeace69

    This is a good fucking song. Kurt vile is this generation's Lou reed mixed with Neil young

    Bonnie Keating

    Yes I agree Lou Reed mashed with Neil Young but still Kurt has "something"
    Very refreshing "real" music reminds of something from the mid 90's output.

  14. Lucas Formaggi

    a melhor do album

  15. levantinianmulatto

    kurt vile, i love you.

  16. Thom Kat

    Azimov Watts

    Hell yea! those guys crack the sky on that one, thanks for the link. Truly is amazing! I never saw someone get so heavy on lap steel, also.

  17. Aidan Convery

    REAL music-no digitally manipulated music/voice.

    Matthew Cox

    people use different technologies as tools to assist with their messages. there's a place for both. digital / analog. if you open your mind to both, there is more to enjoy!

  18. Ceci Me Seed

    good time music

  19. Tuan Jim

    Beautiful, to be honest.

  20. Watremez Guillaume

    Josh Stamper

    Simão Carvalho speak for yourself pal

  22. Samuel Perez

    This is song that makes me think of the women I love and waking up on sunny day and just laying in bed talking and laughing with her. Such a great song.

    Samuel Perez

    +malthus101 I had to bury the woman I'm talking about a couple years ago. Sorry it makes me think of her. I'll stick to listening to heavy metal for you then.

    malthus101

    @Samuel Perez
    Ok Samuel, ok......

    Efrain Romero

    Why would a persons subjective take on a song that he enjoys make u angry? dude. Your a neck beard. Please enlighten me as to how this song makes u feel?

    Club Astro Transcendental Motor

    Wow how fucking sad for Malthus101 that he is so unhappy with his life he thinks people living life in a happy way is somehow "soft" living. Time for a therapist session dear stranger. You are terribly transparent. You are hurting so you want orhers to hurt. Hope your life has changed for the better in the year after that sad comment you posted. Good luck.

    Pennywise

    plot twist; she doesn't exist
