  • I want to live where soul meets body
    And let the sun wrap its arms around me and
    Bathe my skin in water cool and cleansing
    And feel
    Feel what it's like to be new

    'Cause in my head there is a Greyhound station
    Where I send my thoughts to far off destinations
    So they may have a chance of finding a place where they're
    Far more suited than here

    Ba-da-ba-da-ba-ba, ba-da-ba-ba, ba-da-ba-ba
    Ba-da-ba-ba, ba-da-ba-ba-da-ba-da-ba

    I cannot guess what we'll discover
    When we turn the dirt with our palms cupped like shovels
    But I know our filthy hands can wash one another's
    And not one speck will remain

    I do believe it's true
    That there are roads left in both of our shoes
    But if the silence takes you
    Then I hope it takes me too

    So brown eyes I'll hold you near
    'Cause you're the only song I want to hear
    A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere

    Where soul meets body
    Where soul meets body
    Where soul meets body

    And I do believe it's true
    That there are roads left in both of our shoes
    But if the silence takes you
    Then I hope it takes me too

    So brown eyes I'll hold you near
    'Cause you're the only song I want to hear
    A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere

    A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere
    A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere
    A melody softly soaring through my atmosphere Writer/s: Benjamin Gibbard

  • Robyn from Jonannesburg, South AfricaI love this song so much! It is definately my favorite. It has such depth and meaning!
  • Sofia from Bangkok, ThailandTo this song speaks meditation
    -'where soul meets body'
    -'That there are roads left in both of our shoes,
    if the silence takes you, then I hope it takes me too' - two people have different plans in life, but if they just let themselves go into silence (niravana) then they can both excape their future apart.
  • Joe from Baltimore, MdThis is just one of those songs that just sucks you right in, it's very hypnotic. Next to "Crooked Teeth," it's one of best songs off of "Plans."
  • Sam from Powell, OhOne of the most soothing songs I've ever heard. I'm a great fan.
  • Peter from Carmel, InMy favorite song of theirs. I love it!
