Lyrics about Bellingham

January 31, 2010

From Death Cab for Cutie, a band that formed in Bellingham while they were students at Western…

The song is called, “A Movie Script Ending.”

Whenever I come back
The air on Railroad is making the same sounds
And the shop fronts on Holly are dirty words
(Asterisks in for the vowels)
We peered through the windows
New bottoms on barstools
But the people remain the same
With prices inflating, inflating…

I’m not sure what dirty word they’re talking about at a shop on Holly, but I’ll vouch and say that although a Long Island at the Beaver is a bit more expensive now than it was while I was in college, the bartender is still the same guy who checks your ID each time, even though you know for sure he remembers you from prior visits.
