Okkervil River Lyrics


Seth went to my school in our town of 500 people in New
Hampshire. My first encounter with him was sitting next to
him on a school bus. He was eating Handi-Snacks and had
clear braces, so the artificial cheese was all caught up in
there with the crumby crackers. He and Alex Arcone and
Chris Kimball transformed our tiny school into a theater of
the surreal. They would crawl across the classroom floor
mid-lecture to touch the social studies teacher lightly on
the wingtip. "Loose pause!" one of them would say, and the
group would More...

Review about Okkervil River songs
I Wished She Had Kept Fighting | Reviewer: R.I.P Shannon
    ------ About the song Red performed by Okkervil River

Will Sheriff is a rare man to view a porn star so compassionately. I wished Shannon had gotten out of the business and did what it took to get her life together. She may not have realized it, but she had a lot to live for.

Okkervil River's songs for Shannon Wilsey | Reviewer: Nicole
    ------ About the song Red performed by Okkervil River

I read on the Wikipedia that "Red" "Savannah Smiles" and "(Shannon Wilsey on the) Starry Stairs" were written for Shannon Wilsey, better known to the world by her porn name, Savannah. Shannon was a lovely and lonely girl. I heard about her life on E! True Hollywood story. I had never cried so hard over someone who died before I was born. The songs River wrote for Shannon are incredible, wonderful, artistic, and thoughtful. I never tire of listening to them.

Stunning | Reviewer: Aviad
    ------ About the song A Stone performed by Okkervil River

Listened to this frist about 5 mionutes ago, and while I was doing something completely different this was in the background.
I just stopped what I was doing and had to go back to the beginning to realize the genius of what I'd just heard. It was that part that goes "the bitter dismay of a lover who brought fresh bouquets every day when she turned him away to remember some knave who once gave just one rose, one day" WOW. Beautiful stuff, deep, pithy. This guy KNOWS what writing music is all about. Okkervil are a great band. This proves it.

Amazing. | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song A Stone performed by Okkervil River

This song is one of the only songs that can knock me off my feet.
The lyrics are amazing. Will Sheff conveys real emotion in his lyrics. Deffinately the best song writer ever in my eyes.
Also, I relate to this song completely.

    ------ About the song A Stone performed by Okkervil River

an example of timeless, genius songwriting

and the singing is unbelievably real

and the lyrics are up there w/ dylan thomas, sylvia plath, chasing Walt Whitman up a 21st century alley in the night w/ a bottle of wine

Love to a Monster Lyrics | Reviewer: jponsford1@cogeco.ca
    ------ About the song Unless It Kicks performed by Okkervil River

Lover now that you've left me I'm glad you're unlovely, cause if you could take all the heat in your heart and just hang it from you,I wouldn't be able to bear the way you can not love me,it's much easier of me to make a monster out of you,so here I go substituting the glow from your temples,all our sighs and our trembles,and each last letter sent you,from the cheap little pen of this weak little man who was singing, out his jangling ringing, and hopefully stinging attack upon you,yeah so here I go just exploding the hope we'll be speaking,some day years from now seeking,friendship and understanding, yeah i hope you get angry and hurt and have the hardest of landings,and I hope your new man thinks of me when he sees what a number I did on you (c'mon boys)I grow tired of this song I turn my eyes to the blonde in the bleachers, she's a lovely young creature, I think she's seeking adventure,I think she's ready to see that the world ain't so sweet nor so tender,I won't break her just bend her and make her into my new ringer for you,I stay in the same comfy town write the same old songs down drive the same streets, seek the same sense of dull peace,the same sweet words to the chippies,the same walk by the road where the same muddy snow's finally moving, but I'll fight off the spring I don't want lovely things I don't want the earth new

One of the greatest songs | Reviewer: George
    ------ About the song Okkervil River Song performed by Okkervil River

This song is very catchy. The lyrics portray something powerful and yet from a distance it looks just like it's title describes it; the Okkervil River Song.

This song is a great song. Okkervil is an amazing band. I would hold them next to candle (www.myspace.com/candlemusic) or perhaps Sufjan Stevens (http://www.myspace.com/illinoiseispretty) .

black is beautiful | Reviewer: Mike Lehtonen
    ------ About the song Black performed by Okkervil River

I love the driving beat synchronized with the great lyrics -- the jealous anger that we hate to express! Maybe best rock song ever (previously I thought was Ramones "Bonzo Goes to Bitburg) (1985)

in hot cream, in sweet moans | Reviewer: cate108
    ------ About the song So Come Back, I Am Waiting performed by Okkervil River

This is one of the most beautiful Okkervil River songs, if you can even measure in that fashion. It's drawn out and raw and angry but so very, very lovely. One to really give you goosebumps.
