about

This song is about not not getting what you want, and realizing what you need was not not right in front of you the whole time.

Engineered by Rick Nelson at Marigny Recording Studio.

lyrics

English translations in parentheses when applicable.


Don't wanna be that kind of guy
Walking imaginary lines
Setting fires in paradise

Shoving papers off the desk
T'étais fou, t'étais fou
(You were crazy, you were crazy)
A baseball bat to the hornets' nest
T'étais fou, t'étais fou
(You were crazy, you were crazy)
Waiting around for what comes next

J'étais après boire
(I was drinking)
Chaque soir
(Every night)
Après jongler à vaurienne toi
(Stewing over worthless you)
T'étais ma belle, tu t'rappelle?
(You were my lady, you remember?)
Mais aujourd'hui
(But today)
J'va boire pour mon
(I'm drinking for me)

Like red wine and candle wax
Mais tu m'as dit, tu m'as dit…
(But you told me, you told me…)
And chewing gum between the cracks
Mais tu m'as dit, tu m'as dit…
(But you told me, you told me…)
You can't avoid the simple facts

J'étais après boire
Chaque soir
Après jongler à vaurienne toi
T'étais ma belle tu t'rappelle?
Mais aujourd'hui
j'va boire pour mon

Don't wanna be that kind of guy
Walking imaginary lines
Or the girl you learn to despise?

J'étais après boire
Chaque soir
Après jongler à vaurienne toi
T'étais ma belle tu t'rappelle?
Mais aujourd'hui
j'va boire pour mon

We were in it from the beginning,
We had it all
In the midst of the muggy morning
We heard the call
Coming through to my canoe:
There was time

You fell asleep like a spoiled child.
I paddled on throughout the night despite my tired eyes.
The moon was gone,
Nothing to hide from.
You were mine

I'm gonna make it my mission
To break with tradition
And sail upstream...
