“Thinking Of A Place” – The War On Drugs [Official Audio Single]

LYRICS

It was back in Little Bend that I saw you
Light was changing on the water
Where birds above it flown
There was pain in your eyes
So you vanished in the night
Missouri River in the distance
So I lied upon the lawn

I remember walking against the darkness of the beach
Love is like a ghost in the distance, never reached
Travel through the night because there is no fear
Alone but right behind until I watched you disappear

I’m moving through the dark
Of a long black night
Just moving with the moon
And the light it shines
And I’m thinking of a place
And it feels so very real
Just moving through the dark

Once I had a dream I was falling from the sky
Coming down like running water
Passing by myself alight
In the morning, I would wake to the sound of summer falls
Like little whisper through the signs

I’m moving through the dark
Of a long black night
And I’m looking at the moon
And the light it shines
But I’m thinking of a place
And it feels so very real
Oh, it was so full of love!

Come and take my hand, babe
There’s a turn in the road that we’ve been taking
But it’ll set you free
Because there’s a rhythm in the way that we’ve been moving
Yeah, there’s a darkness over there, but we ain’t going

See it through through my eyes
Walk me to the water
Hold my hand and something turns to me
Love me every night
Drown me in the water
Hold my hand and there’s something turning me
See it through my eyes
Love me like no other
And hold my hand and something turns to me
And turns me into you

Lead me through the light
Pull me from the water
Hold my hand and something turns to me
Turns me into you
Just see it through my eyes
Love me like no there
Hold my hand and something turns to me
Turns me into you
Turn to me
Into you

This Saturday, April 22, marks Record Store Day 2017, and fans of The War On Drugs will be happy to know that the band will be releasing a limited-edition 12″ single titled “Thinking Of A Place.” Listen to it above.

The sprawling 11+ minute track begins with a relaxed synth into before breaking into a hazy rhythm with drums and guitar. Psychedelic guitar soloing and mellow harmonica playing color the track as well, adding an airy vibe.

At this time, the band doesn’t have any scheduled concerts for 2017. They also haven’t revealed any plans for a follow-up for 2014’s Lost in the Dream, which was one of our favorite albums that year.
