New Candles

This song is by Death Cab for Cutie and appears on the album You Can Play These Songs With Chords (1997).

You tried you all 13 channels
But they burn me out again
'Cause it's over when...
When ever they say

And I quit sending postcards
'Cause no one knew what to revere
The mailman can't come in to explain

So I'm out of gasoline, and I hate this seat, and it's hard to never mind
It's hard to never mind

I bought myself new candles
But they only burn old flames
I guess it's all the same anyway
Looked through my high school annuals
To see who I still knew
But my point of view's forever changed

All this gasoline just goes to show that no one ever minds
It's building up, bottle rocket time

All your energy just says to me that you never can unwind
Just bring it down, bring it down this time

Should it count against me if I keep everything that you'll send to me?
Well, are you going to find me? City parks aren't empty all the time
With Union down you know I know that this will never change

And I think way too much about the way things should be said
'Cause it just can't leave my head all the way

It seems my brand new candles will catch on fire today!
I think I might get burned anyway

All this gasoline just goes to show not everything is nice
I do my best, don't know what is right
All your energy just says to me that you never can unwind
Just bring it down, bring it down in time
Please bring it down, bring it down
