lyrics

dig in the ground, not looking for blue sky
but for the silver dollar that lays buried there
my hands older by ten or so years
then when i planted it

it’s a token, a rusty metaphor
to put in your hands so i can show you
but this garden’s only rich with seeds and roots
so coin poor

what do you want? i ask
cos i can take everything, everything
and give it to you
what can i say? i ask
i’ll take all the words
and all the notes, all the notes
they’re all for you

these perfect props are not what i’m looking for
‘cause nothing is harmless anymore
‘cause every adjective comes with opposites
i kept it so i could be kept

about

beekeeper Vancouver, British Columbia

beekeeper is an indie post-pop power trio from Vancouver. We play danceable, singable, thinkable tunes. We meld dissonance and odd time signatures with beautiful pop hooks and male/female three-part harmonies. Our live show is quirky, unpredictable, and musically satisfying. It is not rare for our sets to end with the entire audience on stage. ... more
