Deep Blue

This song is by Arcade Fire and appears on the album The Suburbs (2010) and on the movie soundtrack Boyhood (2014).

Here are my place and time
And here in my own skin, I can finally begin
Let the century pass me by
Standing under night sky, tomorrow means nothing
I was only a child then feeling barely alive when
I heard a song from the speaker of a passing car
And prayed to a dying star, the memory's fading
I can almost remember singing

La la la, la la la la, la la la, la la la la, oooh

We watched the end of the century
Compressed on a tiny screen, a dead star collapsing and we could see
That something was ending
Are you through pretending? We saw its signs in the suburbs
You could never have predicted that he could see through you
Kasparov, Deep Blue, nineteen-ninety-six
Your mind's pulling tricks now
The show is over so take a bow, we're living in the shadows

La la la, la la la la, ooh, la la la, la la la la, oooh

Hey, put the cellphone down for a while
In the night there is something wild, can you hear it breathing?
And hey, put the laptop down for a while
In the night there is something wild, I feel it, it's leaving me
La la la, la la la la, la la la, la la la la
La la la, la la la la, la la la, la la la la
