Music Monday: Secret Crowds

Who didn’t love Blink 182? And what the hell do they have to do with this band? Well, they share a lead singer,  Tom DeLonge. People seem either to love or hate his voice, and I happen to fall into the “love” category. Together with that withepic, sweeping, power pop sound  and feel-goodish lyrics that I love, Secret Crowds is one of my favorite AVA songs. I think I’m even getting a line from it tattooed on my body someday (bolded).

———–

If I had my own world
I’d fill it with wealth and desire
A glorious past to admire
And voices of kids out walking dogs
Birds, planes, cleanest cars

If I had my own world
I’d love it for all that’s inside it
There’d be no more wars, death or riots
There’d be no more police, packed parking lots
Guns, bombs sounding off

If I had my own world
I’d build you an empire
From here to the far lands
To spread love like violence

If I had my own world
I’d build you an empire
From here to the far lands
To spread love like violence

Let me feel you, carry you higher
Watch your words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

If I had my own world
I’d show you the life that’s inside it
The way that it glows when you find it
The way it survives with it’s family
Its friends or it’s enemies

Let’s make this a new world
I swear you can go if you want to
I know that you have that within you
Inventing the first clean and usable
God’s greatest miracle

If I had my own world
I’d build you an empire
From here to the far lands
To spread love like violence

If I had my own world
I’d build you an empire
From here to the far lands
To spread love like violence

Let me feel you, carry you higher
Watch our words spread hope like fire
Secret crowds rise up and gather
Hear your voices sing back louder

  1. I loved Blink 182 back in the day, but I haven’t been able to get into any of the later bands like A&A or +44. Usually listening to them just makes me long for the old days and put on some Blink. I still listen to the Mark, Tom, & Travis show on a regular basis–what a great live album that was.

  2. Yeah, I never got into +44 either (only Really heard one song, “When Your Heart Stops Beating”, I think). You should really give AVA a chance, though :)
