Travel through the night…

På Record Store Day udsendte The War On Drugs en 12’er med et såkaldt ‘early mix’ (splittet op i to) af ‘Thinking Of A Place’, en ny fritflydende sang på 11 minutter, der formodentlig har endelig destination på det nye album, der ventes senere på året. Vi bragte straks da her på siden ‘Thinking Of A Place’, men der skulle lige gå mere tid før det gik op for os, hvor god en sang der egentlig er tale om. Så find lige 11 minutter og 12 sekunder til at nyde denne uforstillede perfektion af lyd, toner og sansning…

It was back in Little Bend that I saw you
Light was changing on the water
Where birds above had 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, ever-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 whispers 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
Let it 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 other
Hold my hand and something turns to me
Turns me into you
Turn to me
Into you
