Couldn't Believe - Broods


The Experience: You gave me a list of your promises. Listen to this, listen to this, listen to this... They promised you the world. And you believed them...


Music video: Still waiting. 

The Meaning of Couldn't Believe: Our problem is we want to believe the people who promise us the world - I couldn't believe my luck. The world should be that way, should be safe for the innocent. But it isn't. The jaded despairing sarcasm of lost innocence is the key note to Couldn't Believe. And that lost innocence - not the hurt itself - is the greatest tragedy.

Ask yourself: Have you learned to tread the fine line of hope between gullible innocence and jaded despair?

Album: Conscious (2016)

LYRICS:

You got the key from under the mat
Took off your coat and hung up your hat
I burnt my fingers trying to help
You burnt the wood, you burnt the wood, you burnt the wood

We hid under blankets of ignorance
Cause that was the only time that it all made sense
You gave me a list of your promises
Listen to this, listen to this, listen to this

And I couldn't believe my eyes
I couldn't believe my ears
I couldn't believe my luck
I couldn't believe you're here

And I couldn’t believe my eyes
I couldn’t believe my ears
But I’m looking at you now
And I can’t believe we’re here

You never kept anyone for long
I was the worst at being alone
You came around when I needed you
Let’s give in to this, give in to this, give in to this

And I couldn't believe my eyes
I couldn't believe my ears
I couldn't believe my luck
I couldn't believe you're here

And I couldn’t believe my eyes
I couldn’t believe my ears
But I’m looking at you now
And I can’t believe we’re here

You care for me
You ask of me
I'll do it

And I couldn't believe my eyes
I couldn't believe my ears
I couldn't believe my luck
I couldn't believe you're here

And I couldn’t believe my eyes
I couldn’t believe my ears
But I’m looking at you now
And I can’t believe we’re here

And I couldn’t believe my eyes
I couldn't believe we're here
