I remember your silhouette on Dyes Inlet
Against the silver sheen of a moon like painted glass
Under stars out on a pier; a celestial sphere
We were weightless as the waves that disappeared

Northern lights filled our skies
Empty nights synchronized
We shared a clove cigarette on the parapet
As the TVs glowed from the windows of the model homes
And I'd never be that close again to your lips and perfect skin
As the tide receded into the unknown

Northern lights filled our skies
Empty nights synchronized
Northern lights filled our skies
Empty nights synchronized

I remember your silhouette on Dyes Inlet
Northern lights filled our skies
Empty nights synchronized
Northern lights filled our skies
Empty nights synchronized

My favorite album of the last decade.  The whole thing is great from top to bottom.  I credit Radio Paradise for my appreciation of this band.
A bit of linguistic trivia for youse. In Scots GĂ idhlig, the Northern Lights are called na fir-chlis, which translates as 'the merry dancers'. I've always found that cute :o)

One of my favorite Death Cab songs. Awesome when they play it live, too.
Some songs of theirs are easily dismissed, but this is one of the ones that most definitely has a higher-level kind of jam going on in it! Dig!
Got turned onto this band here...took a few listens... but I can dig what I have heard! Thanks RP!
Not one of my DCFC favourites, ok, but they have produced more interesting songs than this one.
Until he sang I was sure this was The Cure. 

However. . . good tune. What the pop charts should be playing. . . if they still do the charts because I seriously don't know if they do!
Really like this!
loving this new one !!
