Lyrics:

Everyone stares when you walk in the room

They stare when you go

You've got so much control

How could anyone say no

They rarely do

That's why you're you

And why you're winning

And I don't even miss you at all

No no

Caught in the light, you would idly spin

Your skeleton ring

See it shine when you sing

To the window with no meaning

From Tennessee your harmony

Would leave your spirit

And I don't even miss you at all

No no

Silver the shores of isles I've known

Boulevards of dancing boats

You keep the old ember burning

With meadows in mind

As the coaches go by

These thoughts of you will die

They rarely do

That's why you're you

And why you're winning

And I don't even miss you at all

No no

Silver the shores of isles I've known

Boulevards of dancing boats

Silver the shores of isles I've known

You know, there is some music that plays the world. Listening to Fleet Foxes takes me to the mountain tops, to the dewy meadows and lakes that are so still they are a mirror for the dark pines. Want to be there? Headphones in, eyes closed, and mind free.

"...As the coaches go by these thoughts of you will die. They rarely do, that's why you're you and why you're winning. And I don't even miss you at all. No no...."This song is both haunting and beautiful.

i sing the line, "and i don't even miss you at all" to myself when i'm nervous or lonely. this song is so great, and it's such an anthem to me.

Why is this only a B side? I can see why Winter Hymnal is an A side, but this is better

I think that most of their songs are too slow for my liking. That is why I like White Winter Hymnal so much.

@jrtomlinson88 unfortunately, i have yet to find a means to download the music. there's a few songs you could probably download off of youtube (the guitar duet and some live stuff) but robin has been working on some more solo stuff... hopefully an EP or LP down the road

@CyclingTrivialities Did he ever do an album of his solo stuff? I can only find white antelope myspace page and you can't buy the songs.

@hmmstirfry if you like this, check out white antelope - robin pecknold's solo endeavor. this song is more akin to his solo stuff than the foxes', but it's amazing nonetheless
