Matt & Kim - Cameras

[Verse 1]
Sun's going down let's get together
On the bridge we’ll meet up tonight
Black pants, red sweatshirt, and brown bags
Above the East River’s northern lights
You see what I see, I thought it make believe
Watched the sun rise on my street
Old cement makes for a solid place to lay
Bed of light grey, my bed of light grey

[Verse 2]
While I know it’s letters that can spell
I hear now it’s words that can say
I decided to start writing less
And I’m talking more everyday
Sixteen of our friends, a five seat bright red van
Curbside view, turn off of Grand
Pound my steering wheel, we yell to the windshield
I’m finally home, I’m finally home

No time for cameras
We’ll use our eyes instead
No time for cameras
We’ll be gone when we’re dead, oh
No time for cameras
We’ll use our eyes instead
I see flashes of gold

According to the Cameras Songfacts, "the song is based on our culture, in which everything is documented. The duo told Spin Magazine: "Fifty years from now, I'll wish we had documented more of our tours. But, really, it's just about having fun and being able to remember and reflect on it, without technology."
