about

This track was originally called "Cartwheeling," and it was written for a then-autobiographical album called Self-Portraits. The lyrics and melody were completely reworked during the Adventure sessions.

lyrics

LYRICS
Think on those nights, the lights, the crowd, the songs, the scene
Grasp at a final memory as you swing east
You're just behind the w__ing
Catch the city spread out, a picture in grey and brown and green
It don't reveal a thing

And now these films, the pills, the chimes, the clouds beneath
The pouty girls in uniforms, pressed and clean
The engines si__ng
A song that's between liberation and apology
As you take leave

Now the photographs: Look far away; seem fake
As they turn as they turn yeah
All these lives and they turn as they turn, yeah
All these photographs: So far away;
Watch them fade as they turn, as they turn yeah

about

Little Cinema New York

We're an indie pop band that lives between Brooklyn and Austin. We love old books, balmy weather, star charts and Basquiat. Our spirit animal is Sir Ernest Shackleton and our first album is about Adventure. We don't care for the red thread, the Moon in Capricorn or the Yankees. Definitely not the Yankees.
