Pinegrove - The Metronome Lyrics




The night my
Necklace fell off
You fluttered through my
Capillaries like a
Stoned moth

I agree with your ideas but not your tactics
So look me in the eye and be practical
When practically there's nothing left for me to say or do
It's only up to you

A live ladybug
Trapped between my toes
Keep it together man
We're all connected now
Stay composed

I agree with your ideas but not your tactics
So look me in the eye and be practical
When practically there's nothing left for me to say or do
It's only up to you

The current picture
The metronome:
I don't know what this is
But it's not my home

I thought that we were
Falling in love
But we weren't;
Only I was

I agree with your ideas but not your tactics
So look me in the eye and be practical
When practically there's nothing left for me to say or do
It's only up to you

    For the love of all thats good in this world. How on earth does he get that sound at 2:25 ... cant figure it out

    Harrington Shaw

    Ruben M His sound on the guitar? He’s playing an E string rooted chord while letting the high E and B strings ring out over the top!

  10. Troy Place

    This is a modern day John Denver. I'm showing my age with that comment, but I believe it's an accurate comparison. I don't mean to take anything at all away from what he does. I mean this as an extremely Rocky Mountain high compliment.

  11. Logan Cutler

    Thought we were
    Fallin in love
    Turns out
    Only I was...

  12. const4nce

    i'm obsessed with the bridge......... help... i can't stop replaying "the current picture, the metronome: i don't know what this is, but it's not my home // i thought that we were falling in love // but we weren't; only I was" and i have an essay due in 2 days

    const4nce

    update : my essay is due tomorrow, it's 21:22, and i'm about to pull out an all-nighter... i love procrastinating

  13. TorH

    Holly fak

  14. Max Davis

    he is a gift

  15. sptfgpn

    Please release your new album. You don't have to be a saint to be a great artist, (which is what you are).

  16. VI god

    i hope they will come back :/

  17. banana milk

    my heart

  18. moonmary

    his guitar skills are mad (sincerely someone who’s trying to learn those fucking songs)

  19. sam borden

    this is such a beautiful fucking song.

  20. Mitchell

    Every time I rediscover this bloke(bands good too) is like the first time

  21. Mason Dunaway

    this is the best thing

  22. Kendall Frank

    he is crazy amazing!!!! love

  23. Stephanie Murphy

    Wanna be friends

  24. Mia Hanlon

    I've watched this a good 10000 times and I have no shame

  25. ogie on acid

    i lov u evan

  26. Elle

    why does every pinegrove video has evan screaming or yelling or has his mouth wide open on the thumbnail

    Michelle Martin

    Elle can't unsee the seen

    Scot Stephenson

    Because pinegrove peaks when he scream sings

  27. Arturo Yepez

    fuck i have a man crush

  28. Steve Davies

    Don't care what genre(s) of music you're most into, if you can't appreciate that Pinegrove are simply an amazing band, you need to have a serious talk with yourself.

  29. Matthew Rootham

    A bloody good song

  30. Cameron Van Berkum

    This is the flawless interpretation of this chanson. just guitar, vocals, and VansTM.

  31. I'm WORTH IT!

    Thanks so much for sharing! ROCK ON Pinegrove! Where y'all from?

    Daniel Ressler

    New Jersey

  32. MrJamhamm

    can someone please make a tutorial for noobs like me

    TW Pargeter

    MrJamhamm it's like two chords dude

    Ty S.

    Thomas Pargeter actually it's around 7 or 8 :p

  33. Gregory Paul Duarte

    Look me in the eye... LOVE THIS BAND. So addicted.

  34. tater tits

    okay i have spent a month trying to get the little 5-4-2-0 riff thing down and my fingers cannot do the hammer on fast speedy thing like him

    Daniel Ressler

    Practice the song (or just that part) at a manageable speed, and once you're comfortable at that speed, increase the speed by 5 BPM until you can get up to tempo.

    coap

    it worked daniel i have done it

    piss nachos

    its not fifth fret on the b string its the open e

  35. Guy Incognito

    This is so much better than the studio version

  36. therealDirtyDan

    they're so good they make my heart ache

    Chart Attack

    tears streaming down our face as we filmed

    Morganne

    I'm literally clutching my chest in aftershock of the song, reading this comment

  37. Pyro

    God damn, I love Pinegrove so much, it's irresponsible.

  38. S A D since 2001

    Fell in love with a girl, she said she loved me ,well she was lying the whole time :D so im here for that one line : "I thought we were falling in love, but we weren't, only I was " shit happens :D

    James Cavanaugh

    S A D since 2001 i feel this mr runescape

  39. MediocreHaddie

    I really hope no one gives me hate for this, because I also love Pinegrove, but this sounds a little like Katy Perry's "I kissed a girl". I knew it sounded familiar and it bugged me for about 2 weeks until I could put my finger on the song. :)

  40. Levi Corbett

    Just saw him in Chattanooga, opened with this track, so good!

  41. Rodrigo Ribeiro

    He's foot... the metronome *mindblown*

    name name

    he is foot, agreed

  42. Someday River

    Sheeesh it just don't quit

  43. Yung Stragged

    i prefer their live songs over the album ones

    Michael Dawson

    Should have been at the show in Kalamazoo on Saturday. It was incredible. Got to chat with Evan for a sec and he's such a cool guy. God I love Pinegrove.

    Andrew Goss

    @Michael Dawson Oh man I hope they come to kalamazoo again!!! what venue were they at?

  44. Valerie Salazar

    He's such a talented dude. I really can't get enough of his voice. So spectacular.

  45. schmolly3

    Not my favourite Pinegrove song but uggghhh vocals are so good live! The passion in Evan's voice is ridiculous

  46. Jade Thomas

    this is so good

  47. Austin Joseph Madsen

    Recently at your local Pinegrovers Anonymous: "Hello my name is Austin and..."

  48. Jade Nash

    Stéphane Prouvost

    Spencer M

  57. Robert Nilsson

    I'm so happy that I found this band, I've been listening to them non-stop and I still do. Fantastic band!

  58. davidtomamusic
