Nathanson, Matt - Mission Bells Lyrics




I had a dream you died
And I just wanna be with you tonight
Mission bells were ringing
Somewhere higher
I let you get away
I let you get away

What kind of man misunderstands
A woman like you?
Sees her in black and white
It's 5 A.M. and the phone book says
That you're not alone
In the cold gray morning light
The only one that's left to trust
My faithless heart wasted us

I had a dream you died
And I just wanna be with you tonight
Mission bells were ringing
Somewhere higher
I let you get away
I let you get away

What kind of fool thinks love's a prison
Or a handicap
Only says goodbye
Sinking fast in the rocky waters of Alcatraz
His friends said suicide
The only one that's left to trust
My faithless heart wasted us

I had a dream you died
And I just wanna be with you tonight
Mission bells were ringing
Somewhere higher
I let you get away
I let you get away

I'm the end of a Hitchcock movie
A little dark and a lot confusing
I'm the last of the worst pretenders
So lost, so lost in love
I'm the end of a Hitchcock movie
A little dark and a lot confusing
I'm the last of the worst pretenders
So lost, so lost in love

I had a dream you died
And I just wanna be with you tonight
Mission bells were ringing
Somewhere higher
I let you get away
I let you get away
So lost, so lost, in love
So lost, so lost, in love

  30. Bibek Maharjan

    Shit. I am so very jealous of my brother's best friend right now. He has been available for a long time. Yet somehow he caused a swimwear model to state to him she loves him in less than a thirty day period. Just how is that actually manageable? He mentioned he used the Cupid Love System (Google it!) I wish someone beautiful said that to me... I do not remember at any time seeing him so positive. Kinda makes me frustrated.

  31. Clinton Harris

  65. mcjecca

    Matt's from San Francisco, which is known for their Mission District.

  66. gia giia

    I would like to discover ways to get laid. My cousin has started dating a stunning young woman mainly because 8 weeks back he signed up to a website called Master Attraction (Google it if you'd like to know more.) I'm so green with envy since I wish to just fall in love as well. How come it's so difficult? I'm gonna check out this Jake Ayres guy's material. Bizarre point is, my friend previously had Zero success with women. How do you improve so fast? His girl's a banging model.

  67. Ann Domina

    Damn, I would by that shirt

  68. Z S

    Listening to this song and thinking of Cory and Lea :(

  69. Josh McNee

    2 days til Last of the Great Pretenders

  70. Manees MhrZn

    I read through most of the responses on here. I believe that this is a solid vid. My bro wishes to get unbelievable with ladies. He uncovered a fuck load from a site called Master Attraction. (Google it.) The information in relation to getting girls in nightclubs in the emails via that website helped get got him his first sexual encounters in over 3 long yrs. I became pissed however on the grounds that I heard them all. Grrrr.

  71. 2FreeClouds

    I saw matt nathanson play this song on jay leno and i immediately loved it and him

  72. Nicole Pumarada

    What are mission bells?

  73. Pen Xvvb

    i cant say his last name

  74. MyShadowWatcher

    "I had a dream you died,
    And I just wanna be with you tonight"
    So often, I dream about the one I love dying. It wakes me up at night.

  75. ali lena

    Amazing song and video! :)

  76. medo elamody

    I've looked at all the posts but I reckon it's a quality clip. My brother would like to become extraordinary with women of all ages. He was taught a shit load from Master Attraction. (Google it if you want pretty good emails on picking up girls.) The support on the subject of attracting chicks through night clubs from Master Attraction got him his 1st lustful encounters in 4 long yrs. I was annoyed though on the grounds that I heard them all.

  77. SabreMatt311

    Really cool tune.

    Amen sister. :3
