Song-A-Day: January 26

Another Album Anniversary for today’s Song-A-Day as four years ago today Beach House’s Teen Dream was unveiled, capturing the band’s dream pop style better than any of their other albums had with the possible exception of their most recent release Bloom. Our Song-A-Day for today is the beautifully relaxing “10 Mile Stereo”.

The heart is a stone and this is a stone that we throw
Put your hand on this stone, it’s the stone of a home you know
They say we will go far, but they don’t know how far we’ll go
With our legs on the edge and our feet on the horizon

They say we can throw far but they don’t know how far we throw
With our legs on the edge, and our feet on the horizon
The heart is a stone, and this is a stone that we throw
They say we will go far, but they don’t know how far we’ll go

It can’t be gone, we’re still right here
It took so long, can’t say we heard it all
Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell
Tear a moment from the days that carry us on forever

This push and pull is the force of a wave of time
In the heat of the night, we would cry, you are not mine
They said we would go far, but they don’t know how far we’d go
’cause this heart is a stone, and this is a stone that we throw

It can’t be gone, we’re still right here
It took so long, can’t say we saw it all
Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell
Tear a moment from the days that carry us on forever

It can’t be gone, we’re still right here
It took so long, can’t say we felt it all
Limbs parallel, we stood so long we fell
Love’s like a pantheon, it carries on forever
