Back to group

in the long run, you said you knew that this would happen.

Musically Challenged - "Books from Boxes" by Maximo Park

 

I had never heard this song before and it's kinda cool. See the comment below for the specific scene I was trying to recreate.

 

The jacket and hat were bought (and, yes, returned) for this shot in an attempt to look like the group's singer. :)

 

Night falls

And towns become circuit boards

We can beat the sun as long as we keep moving

From the air

Stadium lights stand out like flares

And all I know is that you're sat here right next to me

We rarely see

Warning signs in the air we breathe

Right now I feel each and every fragment

This paper trail leads right back to you

You say you need me to step outside

 

You spent the evening unpacking books from boxes

You passed me up so as not to break a promise

Scattered polaroids and sprinkled words around your collar

In the long run, you said you knew that this would happen

 

Well this is something new

But it turns out it was borrowed too

"Why does every letdown have to be so thin?"

Rain explodes

At the moment that the cab door closed

I feel the weight upon your kiss, ambiguous

You have to leave. I appreciate that

But I hate when conversation slips out of our grasp

 

You spent the evening unpacking books from boxes

You passed me up so as not to break a promise

Scattered polaroids and sprinkled words around your collar

In the long run, you said you knew that this would happen

 

Two bodies in motion

This is a matter of fact

It wasn't built to last

 

You spent the evening unpacking books from boxes

You passed me up so as not to break a promise

Scattered polaroids and sprinkled words around your collar

In the long run, you said you knew that this would happen

 

The pounding rain continued its bleak fall

And we decided just to write after all, after all

The pounding rain continued its bleak fall

And we decided just to write after all
