Foster The People-Best Friend

Yesterday was National Best Friend Day, so we thought it would be nice to dedicate this post to this sweet thing called Friendship. We chose "Best Friend" by Foster The People. For those who don't know them, Foster the People is an indie-pop band from the USA. They were only formed in 2009 and after struggling in the music industry, they produced the massive hit "Pumped Up Kicks", which led them to the top of every music chart. Their second album "Supermodel" is out now and Best Friend has released with a rather weird music video. Dedicated to all the weird but strong friendships out there. Check it out on Lyrics On My Wall.




Foster The People-Best Friend

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You do everything you can
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
(When you find it all around)
Yeah, it comes in waves but it's hardest from the start

Feelings sleeping in the field again
I can feel, I can feel, I can feel
It's beginning to end
Premonitions smiling in the dark
I can see, I can see, I can see
The story's starting to arc
It dries up

I've been a spoken word
I've been a river bed
I've been a rabid force
And let it flow out from within
Sometimes it feels like I only dream in black and white
And color's so oh

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You do everything you can
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
(When you find it all around)
Yeah you say it's what you need
And hide your eyes when you're close to me
(With your feet up in the clouds)
Well, it comes to waves but it's hardest from the start

Waves in theta sleeping into dreams
I can feel, I can feel, I can feel
The celestial beings
Wilted pleasures leave you with a breath
I can see, I can see, I can see
The beauty in the mess
It dries up

I've been a river bed
I tried to salt the wound
I've carried more than I can
I feel I've got a lot to prove
Sometimes it feels like I only dream in black and white
And color's so oh

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You do everything you can
'Cause you're never gonna let it get 'em down
(When you find it all around)
Yeah you say it's what you need
And hide your eyes when you're close to me
(With your feet up in the clouds)
You oughta know that I'm here no matter where you want to go
(With your head hanging upside down)
Well, it comes to waves but it's hardest from the start

I am here, no matter where you are
I'm waiting here with open arms
No matter where you are
Sometimes you have to wait until it passes by
Like a satellite or star
No matter where you are

(When your best friend's all strung out)
You know it!
Uh uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh
(With your feet up in the clouds)
Oh yeah, you know it!
Uh uh uh uh, uh uh uh uh
(When your best friend's all strung out)
Oh yeah, you know it!
You oughta know that I'm here no matter where you want to go
(With your head hanging upside down)
Oh yeah, you know it!
That's how you know
That your best friend's all strung out
