The General Specific

This song is by Band of Horses and appears on the album Cease to Begin (2007).

If the trials at hand are really getting you down
We had a close call
I didn't even see it, then another one
I hardly believed it at all

What the writers say, it means shit to me now
Plants and animals
We're on a bender when it's 80 degrees
The end of December, what's going on?

Only for you and me

With a showing of hands, who's going back to the south?
We're hungry, next that I know
Been running a blender in a lightning storm
Disguised as a blessing, I'm sure

Knowing ahead, there comes a fork in the road
Pants have got to go
We're on an island on the fourth of July
Looks like the tide is going home

In time I'd find
A little way to your heart
Down to the general store for nothing specific
Gonna wash my bones in the Atlantic shore

Only for you and me
