Two Weeks

The East Pointers

Canada love! My friend helped me discover this band during our “fall road trip shenanigans”, to which now I’m obsessed with them! They’re from the East Coast in Canada (hence the East Pointers). They’re rather folk in nature, but they also tend to fall under Indie/Alternative … my favourite kind of music!

This song is really beautiful, though a sad undertone about working so much that it causes a strain on a relationship. What I do love is the Canadian references in the song, such as the airports…it’s the little things, people.


Monday morning, minus eighteen
Another west jet ‘YYG’ to Calgary
Always knew that she’d get used to me leaving
Someday
A lot less words
Now her tears have run dry
I can tell by the way she doesn’t hold me as tight
And she’s thinking she’s better off alone
Nobody warned me
Nobody told me
I’d leave there so broke
Come back so lonely
I’m killing my soul
For the life that I’m leaving behind
Two weeks on
And two weeks off
My blood is wearing thin
And my stomach’s in knots
Too much thinking ‘bout about the time
You have lost
When it’s two weeks off

I punch in idol whiskey on my breath
By the night comes
I take whatever I can get
Blowing back on money
I should’ve sent home
Two more days and I’m east bound
I’ll be praying she’ll be there when I touch down
Maybe there’s a job home
That’ll keep me this time
Nobody warned me
Nobody told me
I’d leave there so broke
Come back so lonely
I’m killing my soul
For the life that I’m leaving behind
Two weeks on
And two weeks off
My blood is wearing thin
And my stomach’s in knots
Too much thinking ‘bout about the time
You have lost
When it’s two weeks off

Nobody warned me
Nobody told me
I’d leave there so broke
Come back so lonely
Two weeks on
And two weeks off
My blood is wearing thin
And my stomach’s in knots
Too much thinking ‘bout about the time
You have lost
When it’s two weeks off

Monday morning, minus eighteen
Another west jet
‘YYG’ to Calgary


TAG! YOU’RE ALL IT!

As I mentioned last week, I’ll probably tag some specific people in the last post. For now, have fun!
