Lyrics for “91” by Bleachers

 

It’s Ninety-One, a war is on, I watch in black, white and green
My mother dances around like there ain’t no rip in the seam
While she waltzes with ghosts I can feel what went wrong
She’s here but she’s not

Just like her, I’m not home
Just like her, I’m not home
Just like her, I’m not home
I’m here but I’m not
Just like her, I’m not home
Hey, I’m here, but I’m not

Storefronts change a new war on so I rip floor boards from our place
Black out all our windows then I kick them from their frames
Now you can dance with anyone tattoo yourself a fucking sleeve
And you’re here but you’re not

Just like you, I can’t leave
Just like you, I can’t leave
Just like you, I can’t leave
Hey I’m here but I’m not
Just like you, I can’t leave
I’m here but I’ve been gone just a little too long now

Oh, someone new walks along steals the weight from your war
Flickers of light and you’re sure that you have been here before
Oh, she could have anyone but she’s asking after your dreams
Yeah I know what I’m not
But looking at you I can’t leave

Just like you, I can’t leave
Just like you, I can’t leave
Oh, I know what I’m not
Just like you, I can’t leave
I know what I’m not
Just like you I can’t leave
I’m here, but I’m not
Just like you, I can’t leave
I’m here, but I’m not
Just like you, I can’t leave
We’ve been gone just a little too long now
