Death Cab for Cutie – Kids in ’99 Lyrics

Kids in ’99 by Death Cab for Cutie


Thinkin’ ’bout those kids
Thinkin’ ’bout those kids back in ’99
Gas leakin’ in the creek
A firecracker then a spark
In a moment they were

Gone, gone
Gone, gone

House shaken by the blast
Black smoke filled the wind of the landscape
Sirens crying through the streets
Choppers hovering like vultures above a meal

Gone, gone
Gone, gone
Gone, gone
Gone, gone

In the waters where we used to swim
Where we thought we would be young forever
But beads that glisten on your sunburnt skin
Evaporated in the flames and embers

Thinkin’ ’bout those kids
Thinkin’ ’bout those kids back in ’99
Wonder who they were then
Not a spark then a flash
In a moment they were

Gone, gone
Gone, gone
Gone, gone
Gone, gone
Gone, gone
Gone, gone
