Bright Eyes & Neva Dinova – Happy Accident ;

A long, long time ago (was 2004 really that long ago?) Bright Eyes and Neva Dinova released an EP together entitled One Jug of Wine, Two Vessels, remember that? Yeah, the memory’s a little foggy for me too but WAIT, don’t get too upset about it because on March 23rd, Saddlecreek is going to rerelease the EP again with (wait for it…) four new songs and ‘Happy Accident’ is one of the four that made the cut!

Yeah, I know. I thought I left Bright Eyes in the past too, but I guess it’s just one of those bands that will always have a bittersweet place in the music library that makes up my life – more bitter than sweet but who’s counting, really?

Bright Eyes & Neva Dinova – Happy Accident lyrics

(I think)

there are lots of things i could have done
little tokens of my love
that i was always saving up to spend
it’s the thought that counts, i guess
even when it don’t make sense
even when it’s easy to forget
too much time for the self employed
i heard you scream in your mother’s voice
so afraid you’d become her in the end
you want a life that you can not live
well, that’s what keeps you competitive
throw another shower for a friend

you can tell me where it is
cause i’m looking for that happiness
come on, tell me where it is
for the sake now of the argument
come on, tell me where it is
cause i’m looking for that happiness
come on, tell me where it is
cause i’m looking

not yet a mother but a good complex
you like the boys when they’re scared of sex
what a shame that they grow up to be men
well maybe father does know best
and that the reason why he left
all your pride to the last ditch you defend
took a while to accept our fate
another chance it eliminates
once we did there was nothing to pretend
they always say ‘there’s a time and place’
so maybe ours will consolidate
if they do, i will greet you as a friend

you can show me where it is
cause i’m looking for your happiness
come on, show me where it is
now you found it all by accident
come on show me where it is
cause i’m looking for your happiness
come on tell me where it is
cause i’m looking

I happen to like the song and I recommend having a listen. If you like it, take it with you!
