Modern Baseball “Wedding Singer” Lyrics

Find it hard to believe tonight
In a curiously well kept house built before I was born
This year we’re gonna stamp out the sorry feeling
Rain on summer vacation
Five blocks from Tasker-Morris station
Fuck the ride home if I can’t find two bills to rub together before

Midnight rolls around
I thought you heard me sing your spirit’s sound
You turned in early
Left the TV flickering its staged
Romance across your face

Said goodbye from the front porch
I always wonder if you’re smiling at us or if you’re looking away
I’d ask, but either way I feel sorry for you
Locked your love in a screenshot
They all work that way, but I’ve been wishing I could say that I don’t
The selfish side likes to think my execution’s more
Of an honest one, these artists all cut cloth with underscore
Conviction blacked out, friction flies me back to Baltimore
To wait for you
And I’m stuck here too

Until midnight rolls around
I thought you heard me sing your spirit’s sound
But you turned in early
Left the TV flickering its staged
Romance across your face

Editor’s note: The song starts at the 1:17 mark of the video.

Philly pop punk quartet Modern Baseball shared a music video for their new song, “Wedding Singer,” off their upcoming third studio album, Holy Ghost. Watch above.

Previously, we’ve heard two tracks off the new record, “Everyday” and “Apple Cider, I Don’t Mind” in a double-release that premiered on NPR.

These songs are a lot more serious and emotional than their witty breakthrough 2014 LP, You’re Gonna Miss It All. The music video, however, does show Modern Baseball’s frivolous side in times of stress with roller blading, night clubs, and mannequins. The clip was directed and written by Kyle Thrash, who also did their documentary, “Tripping in the Dark” and the Holy Ghost Album Trailer.

“Wedding Singer” is a melodic pop punk jam with honest lyrics, a vigorous bass line, and energetic guitar riffs. There’s a strange breakdown toward the end, which may just be in there to sync with the music video. We’ll know for sure when the new album drops next week.

Holy Ghost is set to release May 13, 2016 on Run for Cover Records. Pick it up on Amazon.

Modern Baseball will be headlining The Holy Ghost Tour this summer with Joyce Manor and Thin Lips. For for their latest music, news, and tour dates, check out Modern Baseball’s Zumic artist page.
