"Teen Dream" (2010)

Zebra Lyrics – Beach House

You know you're gold, you don't gotta worry none
Oasis child, born and so wild
Don't I know you better than the rest
All deception, all deception from you

Your love is stag in the white sand
Wilderness for miles, eyes so mild and wise
Don't I know you better than the rest
All deception, all deception from you

Any way you run, you run before us
Black and white horse arching among us

Your love is stag in the white sand
Oasis child born into a man
Don't I know you better than the rest
All deception, all deception from you

Wilderness for miles, eyes so mild and wise
Oasis child, born and so wild
Don't I know you better than the rest
All deception, all deception from you

Any way you run, you run before us
Black and white horse arching among us

Silver Soul Lyrics – Beach House

We gather medicine for heartache
So we can act a fool
It's incomplete without you
The silver soul is running through
It's a vision, complete illusion, yeahhh

The needle along the spinning wheel
Collecting silver coil
It gathers heat without you,
Whether or not you're turned from it
It's a quick turn
To let it figure out

It is happening again
It is happening again
It is happening again
It is happening again

The bodies lying in the sand,
They're moving in the dark
It is so quick to let us,
We feel it move through our skin
It's a sickness, a manic weakness, yeahhh

It is happening again...

Norway Lyrics – Beach House

We were sleeping till
You came along
With your tiny heart
You let us in the wooden house
To share in all the wealth

Don't you know it's true?
Norway-ay-ay, ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay
Norway-ay-ay, ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay

Seven figures leap the hungry mouths
The beast, he comes to you
He's a hunter for a lonely heart
In the season of the sun

Don't you know it's true?
Norway-ay-ay, ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay
Norway-ay-ay, ay-ay-ay-ay-ay-ay

Where you thinking that you gotta run to now
With the beating of a tiny heart?
Hang on to the things that you're supposed to say
Millions of stars, they open to your fate

Norway...

Walk In The Park Lyrics – Beach House

You go for a walk in the park 'cause you don't need anything
Your hand that you sometimes hold doesn't do anything
The face that you see in the door isn't standing there anymore

In a matter of time, it would slip from my mind
In and out of my life, you would slip from my mind
In a matter of time

The face that you saw in the door isn't looking at you anymore
The name that you call in its place isn't waiting for your embrace
The world that you love to behold cannot hold you anymore

In a matter of time it, would slip from my mind
In and out of my life, you would slip from my mind
In a matter of time

More, you want more
More, you want more
More, you want more, you tell me
More, only time can run me
More, you want more, you tell me
More, only time can run me
More, you want more you tell me
More, only time can run me
More, you want more, you tell me
More, only time can run me
More, you want more, you tell me
More, only time can run me
More, you want more, you tell me

Used To Be Lyrics – Beach House

You are coming home, are you still alone, are you not the same as you used to be?
As the sun grows high and you serve your time, does each day just feel like another lie?
Now you know, is it just for show, just a foolish game that you hide behind?
Don't forget the nights when it all felt right, are you not the same as you used to be?
Used to be

In an endless night, could you feel the fright of an age that was and could never be?
So we hold it close when we feel the most like a love that we could not leave behind
Turn the wheel to each way we feel til I'm lost and I cannot find you there
Don't forget the nights when it all felt right, are you not the same as you used to be?
Used to be

Coming home any day now

Lover Of Mine Lyrics – Beach House

You hear my cry, lover of mine
No tear in the eye or fear in my mind
The forest is thick and you don't recognize
We parted our lips and we reached from inside

In a wide open field we know we can feel
Awake and unreal, off to nowhere

Need more people to be satisfied
No fear of a god and prayer for the night
You come into our minds and rush through our lives
We parted our lips and reached from inside

In a wide open field we know we can feel
Awake and unreal, off to nowhere

The only thing you've got, you know you're better off without it

Youngest fire, you decide
You decide what is right

Near yet so far, isn't it?

Better Times Lyrics – Beach House

I want you to know the truth
'cause I've been around before
Though I was looking anymore

Been a fool for weeks
'cause my heart stands for nothing and your soul's too weak
Got a will that's been around for days
Goes far if you want it
It needs to behave

But then you, you come around
Big mistake

I don't want to know
We don't need a sign to know better times

Running around 'cause you beat yourself up
And you made a crack and the one that you love is gone
How much longer can you play with fire before you turn into a liar?

I've been around before
Thought you weren't looking anymore
But then we, we come and go, go up in smoke

I don't want to know
We don't need a sign to know better times

10 Mile Stereo Lyrics – Beach House

The heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw
Put your hand on this stone, it's the stone of a home you know
They say we will go far, but they don't know how far we'll go
With our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon

They say we can throw far but they don't know how far we throw
With our legs on the edge, and our feet on the horizon
The heart is a stone, and this is a stone that we throw
They say we will go far, but they don't know how far we'll go

It can't be gone, we're still right here
It took so long, can't say we heard it all
Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell
Tear a moment from the days that carry us on forever

This push and pull is the force of a wave of time
In the heat of the night, we would cry, you are not mine
They said we would go far, but they don't know how far we'd go
'cause this heart is a stone, and this is a stone that we throw

It can't be gone, we're still right here
It took so long, can't say we saw it all
Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell
Tear a moment from the days that carry us on forever

It can't be gone, we're still right here
It took so long, can't say we felt it all
Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell
Love's like a pantheon, it carries on forever

Real Love Lyrics – Beach House

I met you somewhere in a hell beneath the stairs
There's someone in that room that frightens you when they go boom

The color you say is black is the one you might lack
In the size of your eyes, is there a righteous prize?

I met you

There's something wrong with our hearts when they beat pure they stand apart
In the black room, the light, watch the seabird fall
Real love, it finds you somewhere with your back to it

I met you

You know, you know, we belong by the stream, to the dawn

Take Care Lyrics – Beach House

Stand beside it, we can't hide the way it makes us glow
It's no good unless it grows, feel this burning, love of mine
Deep inside the ever-spinning, tell me does it feel
It's no good unless it's real, hill sides burning
Wild-eyed turning til we're running from it

I'd take care of you if you'd ask me to
In a year or two

You say swimming in the lake we'll come across a snake
It is real and then it's fake, feel its heartbeat
Feel what you heat, far so fast it feels too late

I'd take care of you
Take care of you
That's true

"Devotion" (2008)

Wedding Bell Lyrics – Beach House

Hello
Your humming to all those never songs

But your singing the only words you know
Would you cry If I lied
A day

I chose yeah
Your ringing the only wedding bell ell ell
And were swimming the seas we've known so well
I tried to staying alive In our beds In our heads

Oh but your wishes line the mast

Ahhhh
Is your heart still mine to save
I enjoy
Nothing
ahhhh

I chose yeah
Your ring the wedding bell
And were swimming the seas we've known so well
I tried staying alive in our beds
In our beds

Oh but your wishes line the mast

You Came To Me Lyrics – Beach House

Invite your sister
into the garden
all cannot play
fist full of wild flowers
hand picked by someone
who nearly fell

(ahhh, ahhh)

friend foe or feather
if we roll together
give my gift to you
in all kinds of weather
if not now not ever
please do not go

hands over your eyes
recalling your size
is it the right time
for the game we play
in all kinds of weather
if not now not ever
this is the right time
for a holiday

(la, la, la, la)

you came to me
in my dreams
and you spoke of everything
sweeter than the days that I was breathing
how on earth did anything...

Gila Lyrics – Beach House

Man, you got a lot of jokes to tell
So you throw your baby's pennies down the well
Give a little more than you like
Pick apart the past, you're not going back
Don't you waste your time
No, oh, oh, oh

Gila-a
Gila-a-a-a-a
Gila-a-a-a

Sure, you've got a handle on the past
It's why you keep your little lovers in your lap
Give a little more than you like
Pick apart the past, you're not going back
So don't you waste your time
No, oh, oh, oh

Gila-a
Gila-a-a-a-a
Gila-a-a-a

Hoping for the last ship to arrive
I am blessed with a kingdom, half mine.

Gila-a
Gila-a-a-a-a
Gila-a
Gila-a-a-a-a
Gila-a-a-a-a
Gila-a-a

Turtle Island Lyrics – Beach House

Down the hill I hoped that I'd find
Something I could rest my hands on
In the distant sun is setting
Deer are jumping over hedges

By the dock of the pond Turtle Island
I will wait for you there, creeping
Silently, I can't keep you
Right behind me
All my days in the sun...

In the waters, trace her features,
Did they scare you, hardened creatures
In that murky, green perfection
Did they warn you of dissection...
How? What, why, when...?

By the dock of the pond Turtle Island
I will wait for you there, creeping
Silently, I can't keep you
Right behind me
All my days in the sun...

How I want Olive to know,
That inside me she'll always grow.
In all colors and prizes
You will always
Remain

By the dock of the pond Turtle Island
By the dock of the pond Turtle Island
I can't keep you
Right behind me
All my days in the sun...

Holy Dances Lyrics – Beach House

In the night I called your
name - heart of mine
one letter at a time.
I'll be found in a
land of savages
Ah-h...

Maybe you
don't know what you've got,
spent yer money on
desert lots -
holy dances and acronyms
for her.

Bury your maps, they'll find
all you pots and pans
cross all your hands, one
finger at a time
you'll be found in a
land of savages ah-h...

Maybe you don't know what
you've got,
husk to hide and I know you're
not, spending money
on a desert rose -
holy dances and acronyms
for bones.

All The Years Lyrics – Beach House

I was sitting on a rock, just
waiting for a key
to sleep inside the house
of old serenity

So I climbed onto your altar
begged, please don't let me falter,
we'll put our oaths at stake
in a heaven that all icicles make.

All my devotion,
compelled by an ocean,
of all the years to come
of all the years to come

So we'll work until the night is quite
what once all our dreams were like;
doing all the housework, returning all the
schoolbooks, for good

Let's go on pretending that the light
is neverending -
we still have the summers
to be good to one another, yay hey

Heart Of Chambers Lyrics – Beach House

In your heart of chambers
where you sit
with your picture books
and your ancient wit
In that nook I found you
so old and tired
would you be the one to carry me?
I'd like to be someone
you could finally learn to love again

Made our iron bed side
cold as graves
so we stoke the organs
that may comfort grace
and they conjured spirits
to make you smile
would you be my long time baby?

I'd like to be someone
you could finally learn to...
We've put our words down
by our sides
let's take the time
to mend these smiles
together we could make it home
love is a prize
live our own lives

In our beds we're the lucky ones
filled with the sun
In our beds we're the lucky ones
fill us with the sun

Some Things Last A Long Time Lyrics – Beach House

Your picture is still on my wall, on my wall.
The colors are bright, bright as ever.
Red is strong.
Blue is true.

Some things last a long time.
Some things last a long time.

Astronaut Lyrics – Beach House

Come over to my house
I'll pour some tea for us
one sugar or two
Your hand is right in front of me,
your finger fragilely, holy on
my side

Faster than an astronaut
who's coming home to what
he left long ago
I've made this brand new bed for
you, I trust the things we do,
holy or not

open the gate cause you're already late,
at the end of the lane, is a glass of
lemona-ade, keep or the path when
you hear the laugh, in the white of her
Palm is your heart!

{I'll be brave for a while
I won't bring you down
anymore than you are}

Please, be my baby, don't mean
maybe or not, look out the
window, there's a bright
yellow cat...

D.A.R.L.I.N.G. Lyrics – Beach House

Where did you come from
You're no stranger
How I know
you will return
so I won't be sad
D.A.R.-L.I.N.
G - .....

In that harbor of a room
you'll find your anchor soon
in the parting of our ways
may it never happen
any way

In the highest blackened moon
there'd be more life
in the right shade of our
sighs, Death!, be gone!
D.A.R.-L.I-N.G.-.. ..

In that harbor of a room
you'll find your anchor soon
in the parting of our ways
may it never happen
anyway...

All of your charms
couldn't keep you from...

Home Again Lyrics – Beach House

Home again, driven back
She's still waiting for a friend

Little purple organdy,
Remember what you've always meant to me

Something in the way your heart is nailed upon a hand
Swimming in the cold waters, head above the sand

Heaven, baby, is in an hour
With your heart in handfuls, forbidden flowers
Bread and bonnets along the way
Better take your chances while there's still a ray

Something in the way your heart is nailed upon a hand
Swimming in the cold waters, head above the sand

Constant heart of my devotion
Must be you, the door to open
Home again, be here, be with him
Will I swim out of your ocean?

Constant heart of my devotion
Must be you, the door to open
Home again, be here, be with him
Will I swim out of your ocean?

Constant heart of my devotion
Must be you, the door to open
Home again, be here, be with him
Will I swim out of your ocean?

"Beach House" (2006)

Saltwater Lyrics – Beach House

Love you all the time
Even though you're not mine
Love you all the time
Dream I'm in the saltwater

Timing's gone all bad
Broken faith and a broken way
You couldn't lose me if you tried
'Cos I'll be rollin' to your side, baby

Love you all the time
Even though you're not mine
Love you all the time
Broken faith and a broken way

You couldn't lose me if you tried

Tokyo Witch Lyrics – Beach House

in a dark winter Tokyo
in the Mahjong parlour he waits
severed past throbbing through his hands
nobody comes to the one who waits
in the hallways they're lying there in the red blossom of the gaze
in your arms there is nothing left
we are all on the wait

my whole life is a mystery that i can't break
our lings and Calvary of our mistakes
i would love to heal you now

in a dark winter tokyo
in the Mahjong parlours they wait
severed past sweeping through their hands
nobody comes to the ones that wait

in the heart of the young they gloss over the pain

all i wanted to see is that i am better
all i want to believe is that i am better
round and round
all i want you to see is that i am better
round and round

Apple Orchard Lyrics – Beach House

1, 2, 3, 4

You only give me
what you don't want no more
ask the questions
that you don't know at all

let's lie down for awhile
you can smile
lay your head in the old
old fashion

you know how it is my friend
in the boxes of those picture frames
hold your inside 'cause you're cold at night
warm your heart, love, 'cause you're by my side

let's lie down for awhile
you can smile
lay your head in the old
old fashion

lay your hand on me
apple orchard
take your time
you can settle down
hold your breath
'cause you're, you are nothing
hold your hand on me
for a while

Master Of None Lyrics – Beach House

You always to the parties
To pluck the feathers off all the birds
On your knees
I will not beg you please

I want your picture but not your words
You know they want it, but there's no verse
On your own
But you can not call it your all

We always wrung our heads too much
We know the reasons, but such and such
On your own,
You will not catch your unknown

We run our fingers together
you know it's easy, devil's plan
On your own,
You can not call me your all

Jack of all trades
Master of none
Cry all the time
Cause I'm not having fun

You always want to be forgiven
The devil does what you ask of him
On your knees
But you can not; you will not agree

Auburn And Ivory Lyrics – Beach House

Once when I saw her there
White light she stood so still
Warming her eyes to the sea
Hardly her way to be free

Auburn and ivory
Heart break and pony tails

Holding her bones by a fire
writing the letter she sails
white page turns golder lights
wanting her one sacrifice

auburn and ivory
heart break and pony tails

come to me
and I'll tell you what's wrong
she said, "I'll wait for you. I'll wait for..."

Once when I saw her there
white light she stood so still
white page turns golder lights
hardly her one sacrifice

auburn and ivory
heart break and pony tails

Childhood Lyrics – Beach House

The beginning of the end,
Of the heart lost, was my friend.
The nature of that place,
Sends a sweet smell,
Around my head.
Oh well.

The hardest thing of all,
The heartbreak of our loss.
Hiding all the time.
We were cast out, of everywhere,
But not the last time;
The last time I remember, the last time I remember,
It was gone.

How I want you to know,
How far west we will go.
Hand in hand they're in love,
All loyal days end slowly.

All my toys are dead-
Unravelled at the stairs.
Open but who cares.
Why-h-hy-hy?

Lovelier Girl Lyrics – Beach House

Long days of wanting you here
living in fear
shedding a tear for you

Long nights of pasty face tunes
echo in rooms
filling with gloom for me

Letters so hard to mail
feeling like the wind from the sea

Now I step into the line
girl on the
in all the world than you

There's nothing lovelier, girl
in all the world than making love to you

Letters so hard to mail
feeling like the wind from the sea

Lately got to thinking that
how I long to have you here with me

House On The Hill Lyrics – Beach House

you'd do anything
just to reach our door
but I won't be there

how does it feel
the house on the hill

you'd give anyone
just to reach our door

and i won't be there.

Heart And Lungs lyrics - beach house

1, 2, 3, 4

from our lives
the land disappears
all that is left is a heart made of tears
from her smile the golden tooth is worn
child you're only hope has flown
hold on to this house
all I have left is the only place I've been

it's all heart and lungs
it's not that much fun
it's hard, hard to run
it's not that much fun
it's all heart and lungs
it's all...

heart
heart
heart
heart
