Something Vague - Bright Eyes
Something VagueFevers and Mirrors indie Bright Eyes folk singer-songwriter emo
This Bright Eyes track is one of the many high points of Fevers and Mirrors. Although slightly more down tempo and relaxed, it is a perfect chaser to The Calender Hung Itself. Arguably the most emotional, and perhaps self reflective track on the record, it is somewhat of a musical roller coaster with an abrupt end.
Bright Eyes is an indie rock band consisting mainly of American singer, guitarist, and songwriter Conor Oberst. Bright Eyes also features multi-instrumentalist/producer Mike Mogis, keyboard player Nate Walcott and a rotating lineup of collaborators drawn primarily from Omaha, Nebraska, United States' indie music scene.

But mostly the view is accurate.
You see your breath in the air
As you climb up the stairs
To that coffin you call your apartment.
And you sink in your chair,
Brush the snow from your hair
And drink the cold away.
You're not really sure
What you're doing this for
But you need something to fill up the days.
A few more hours.
There's a dream in my brain that just won't go away.
It's been stuck there since it came a few nights ago
I'm standing on a bridge in the town where I lived
As a kid with my mom and my brothers.
And then the bridge disappears
And I'm standing on air
With nothing holding me.
And I hang like a star,
Fucking glow in the dark,
For all those starving eyes to see,
Like the ones we've wished on.
But now I'm confused.
Is this death really you?
Do these dreams have any meaning?
No. No, I think it's more like a ghost
That's been following us both.
Something vague that we're not seeing,
Something more like a feeling.
