lyrics

When I was moving house I found a shoebox packed
With every letter that you wrote me all preserved intact
From 2000 to 2003
And the mixtapes with tracklists all written by hand
So carefully selected, only one song per band
You hoped might resonate with me

While the others were all out there getting drunk with their friends
We just talked to other lonely kids on MSN
While pirating the Manics and the Smiths
And a soundtrack made us feel like we could be enough
As if all of those songs could have been written about us
The Mountain Goats, The Faint, Magnetic Fields and Flaming Lips

Ball of burning spacerock spinning through the dark
I wish you every good thing, wherever you are
Well we all survived somehow
And though I never see you now
I still believe in certain bonds that never break
So send me your co-ordinates
I'm making you a tape

The last time we spoke you were down on your luck
Oh did you hear that The Weakerthans split up?
I always thought you’d be a writer or a rock star
Well I never had anything worthwhile to say
But you always wrote back anyway
You said “I’ll change the world we live in, please don’t change the way you are”

Ball of burning spacerock spinning through the dark
I wish you every good thing, wherever you are
Well we all survived somehow
And though I never see you now
I still believe in certain bonds that never break
So send me your co-ordinates
I'm making you a tape

Music connects me to people, connect me to music
Connects me to you
Music connects me to people, connect me to music
Connects me to you
Music connects me to people, connect me to music
Connects me to you
Music connects me to people, connect me to music
Connects me to you
