lyrics

i guess they had it when they said i was a simple man
but even simple men can try a complicated plan

blue sky above me
crazy this was lovely
blue sky above me
green grass around me
body on the ground, see
blue sky above me

i can’t watch you play bourgeois, i’ve had too much to drink
i can’t keep you happy, all sweet maidens are extinct
and i can’t say i’m damaged, that’s just lazy monochrome
but i caaaaaaaaan

i can flee in longing to a frigid libertine
and i can give another every bit that’s left of me
i can still remember every painting, every poem
but i caaaaaaaaan

this was happiness, i’ll take all these things that are on your desk, tell me ohhhh
signs of loving care, break into your house, shadowy despair, tell me ohhhh
the table and the bed, all the places that ownership was bred, tell me woaahhh
but the tragedy is that you and me
are just like anyone else

blue sky above me
crazy this was lovely
crazy, you were lovely

i guess i’ve learned that i am capable of giant lies
and it is in that spirit that i do apologize

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
