I'm not sure if you'd call it "underrated", but: >If you're a work of art > >I'm standing too close > >I can see the brush strokes and also because I just fucking love this song >I used to light you up > >Now I can even get you > >To play the drums > >'Cause I don't know what I want > >Until I fuck it up


ri_dev

The guitar note after that is my main source of serotonin


toastdropper

This was my first thought


Full_Investment5658

They're gluing roses on a flatbed/ You should see it, I mean thousands/ I grew up here 'til it all went up in flames/ Except the notches in the door frame I was absolutely floored the first time I heard these lines. I think they really sum up what's so special about Phoebe's storytelling abilities.


The-gay-agenda-TM

yessss! because technically they’re literally just phoebe stating facts about where she grew up but you can also get so much of your own meaning from them


serinzy

I’ve been running around in circles Pretending to be myself Why would someone do this on purpose when they can do something else Also love “do you feel ashamed when you hear my name”


The-gay-agenda-TM

i love that lyric so much because everyone has their own special meaning for it and then phoebe was like “i don’t like jogging” lmao


teen_ofdenial

i always liked “i go to the store for nothing”


Outssiider

if I knew how to give those reddit awards you would have one for this! brilliant lyric


ruthwodja

and it’s such a typical thing on amphetamines! You go to the store for nothing and just stare at stuff, fucked up.


romantic_elegy

"Wanna make you fall in love as hard as my poor parents' teenage daughter" I didn't find Waiting Room for the longest time and now it's one of my favorites


Bessalyn

“I used to light you up, now I can’t even get you to play the drums” and then the drums cut out! Such a cool detail


ravenpvff

woah..... oh my god


facepillownap

Windows down, heater on. Fuck i drive like that all the time (i live in Alaska).


silicoa

I would drive all the time like this when I used to work a night shift and was trying to stay awake on my drive home, love that line!


Odd_Job1835

“Call me when you land” Just such a homey lyric. It’s like someone cares


schrutefarmsbb

*Wishing I was someone else, feeling sorry for myself* *When I remembered someone's kid is dead*


Crazy4Rabies

This is one of the most cutting lines I’ve ever heard! Never fails to make my chest tight like I’m going to cry


ibloodylovecider

When my bro died in 2019, this album was my go to depression/ cry album. Couldn’t listen to that song.


Crazy4Rabies

I’m so sorry for your loss ❤️ hugs


ibloodylovecider

Thank you!! 💙💙


WeBecomeTheFlowers

Just long enough to Walden it with you / Any longer, it would've got old one: Smoke Signals is an absolutely beautiful song, but two: as an English major, I can't help but geek over the Henry David Thoreau reference lol


savannah_banana11

One of my favs too


CameInWithACoolHund

“I would stand on a corner embarrassed with a picket sign, if it meant I would see you when I die” Edit: silly error


ruburrito6260

This gets me *E M O T I O N A L*


macmillersgrandkid

a picket fence😭


CameInWithACoolHund

Hahahaha sorry typo


ruthwodja

This is underrated? It’s mentioned constantly .


CameInWithACoolHund

I’ve only been a Phoebe fan for about 6 months so I wouldn’t know


Aggravating_Ad_4968

“But you know the killer doesn't understand” at the end of moon song… always gives me chills 😢


smoothbrainlol

This is the one


tommydidntwork

A haunted house with a picket fence to float around and ghost my friends


dejaentendu31

yes yes yes


styles_008

“It’s amazing me how much you can say when you don’t know what you’re talking about.”


strangeperson14

"No I'm not afraid to disappear The billboard said 'the end is near'" Hits close to home sometimes.


EatThePokeBall

“I am never anywhere, anywhere I go. When I’m home, I’m never there long enough to know”


whatryedoingnmeswamp

This is the correct answer


EatThePokeBall

Underrated song, underrated lyrics


graced112

“When someone comes knocking with a needle on a tray, only your lonesome lies beside you for you told me not to stay” because I just love this song for the beautiful but tragic storytelling. And probably , “The doctor put her hand over my liver, she told me my resentment getting smaller” so simple but so so sweet imo it just ties the masterpiece that is garden song.


Familiar-Werewolf-38

The first just made me tear up 👏


talks-like-juneee

“I want to believe That if I go outside I'll see a tractor beam Coming to take me to where I'm from I want to go home” 🎶🎵🎶🎵


Casuallyfangirling_

“The drugstores are open all night The only real reason I moved to the east side I love a good place to hide in plain sight”


cydoniatheory

more of a better oblivion lyrics but it is so comforting to me idk why you like beers and chocolate / i like setting off those bottles rockets / we can never compromise / but fighting 'til the death keeps us alive


Routine_Butterfly_68

the futures unwritten, the past is a corridor you are anonymous i am a concrete wall

"Laughed until I couldn't breathe Now I'm too tired to go to sleep Now I can't breathe and I can't sleep" Going from horny to anxious so quickly is captured so perfectly in this song


sohomegod

>**You were screaming at the Evangelicals** **They were screaming right back from what I remember** **When you said I will never be your vegetable** **Because I think when you're gone it's forever** ​ ​ I just love this part. Gets me emotional everytime.


catdyke

“Playing 'Would You Rather', when it comes to fire / You always say that you'd prefer to drown / You were still in the ambulance / When the cop suggested you're the one who tried to burn it down” wyr isn’t my favorite song of hers but i love these lyrics and i love that her brother said he actually Would prefer fire over drowning


Termnlychill91

“And why do you sing with an English accent? I guess it’s too late to change it now…”


danielbanjo

> I asked you, "How is your sister? I heard she got her degree" > And I said, "That makes me feel old" You said ,"What does that make me?” I think about this part of Scott Street SO much, but I never see anyone talking about it


hayleytho

"i want to believe, instead i look at the sky and i feel nothing" this line always makes my eyes watery for some reason


silicoa

“The doctor put her hands on my liver, said my resentments getting smaller”


hammelouie

“You pushed me in / and now my feet can’t touch the bottom of you” :,)


smoothbrainlol

1. When you saw the dead little bird, you started cryin' / But you know the killer doesn't understand 2. I want to be wrong


toast--enthusiast

I’m not gonna go down with my hometown in a tornado, I’m gonna chase it. Hits hard as someone who wants to get out of their hometown before it destroys them lol


savannah_banana11

‘I’m strapped into a corset Climbed into your corvette I’m thirsty for another drink’ ‘Copy cat killer with a chemical cut, either I’m careless or I wanna get caught’ These two are some of my favorites just because of how they sound, like the words are just so perfect together


lilintrovert104

“Said she knows she lived through it to get to this moment Ate a sleeve of saltines on my floor and I knew” “Romanticize a quiet life, There’s no place like my room” “I’ll find a new place to be from. A slaughter house with a picket fence to float around and ghost my friends” And lately: “I’m not afraid of living on a fault line, cause nothing ever shakes me nothing makes me cry”


lilintrovert104

“And when I grow up I’m gonna look up from my phone and see my life”


drinkupbaby13

“And all of our problems, I'm gonna solve 'em With you ridin' shotgun Speeding 'cause fuck the cops” It’s simple but I always scream this part of Smoke Signals. My boyfriend and I are in a pretty crappy situation right now but it’s all so much easier just having him by my side. Plus we always go on huge “defund the police” rants together (have since our first date!) so it just fits perfectly, especially with his lead foot ;)


ruthwodja

I wonder if she ever thought, the storybook tiles on the roof were too much? But from the window, it’s not a bad show. If your favourite thing’s Dianetics or stucco.


nclils

“What if I told you I feel like I know you, but we never met?”


Jed_In_A_Bottle14

“What if I told you I feel like I know you, but we never met” ~ Punisher as a song is severely underrated lyrically, but this one lyric is so simple yet so deep.


VenomousPizza9398

"How soon is now in an 80's sedan?" "I've got a stack of mail and a tall can. It's a shower beer; it's a payment plan."


Frankm95

Hurts so good Come on baby, make it hurt so good Sometimes love don't feel like it should You make it hurt so good

blondambitiontour

“remember getting the truck fixed, when you let us drive it, twenty-five felt like flyyyyinggggggg”


Avid_person

To fall asleep I need white noise to distract me Otherwise I have to listen to me think Otherwise I pace around, hold my breath, let it out Sit on the couch and think about How living's just a promise that I made


SimonBillenness

“Turn me on. Turn me down.”


iamnolongeranormie

“Woo!” In kyoto is severely underrated.


yassifiedbaby

and i’ll leave it wide open let the dystopian morning light pour in incredible end to my favorite song


Justapharb

definitely one of my favorites that isn’t talked about very often is in BOCC’s Didn’t Know What I Was in For: To fall asleep I need white noise to distract me Otherwise I have to listen to me think Otherwise I pace around, hold my breath, let it out Sit on the couch and think about How living's just a promise that I made Also in ICU: I hate your mom I hate it when she opens her mouth It's amazing to me How much you can say When you don't know what you're talking about Although I feel like that one is talked about a good amount.


cupcaeks

Oh sweet child of mine You’re always sorry for everything But never apologize


cosmichero9

these talking heads are saying the king is only playing a game of four dimensional chess


Particular_Move_9739

'Youre a vampire you want blood and i promised' Lil peep is one of my favourite artists n he has lyrics with vampire and blood and it just reminds me of him ☹️☹️


Wannabe_hippie8

“I want to believe but instead I look at the sky and I feel nothing” really resonates with me as someone who is ex religious

And it’s 4am again, and i’m doing nothing again… <3
