Meaningless

This song is by Jon Brion and appears on the album Meaningless (2001).

Oil tankers in the national guard
I came to meet you
My car died in your yard
Why turn the key
There's so much here to see
These are my memories

Of precious places, precious things
That were meaningless before
We'd seen them together

Old hinges squeaking in the rain
That hotel by the highway where we stayed
There's something every hour
Who needs the Eiffel Tower
When we've got memories

Of precious places, precious things
That were meaningless before
We'd seen them together

The pen, the car
The paint, the pier
The moon and star
The message clear
Liberty raised her hand to us
As if to say
It's OK
Live today
Live today

I said don't leave me, don't break the tie
Then I left you and time went rolling by
And here's what I can't stand
I know that every landmark triggers memories

Of stupid places and silly things
That were meaningless before
We'd seen them together
That were meaningless before
We'd seen them together
That were meaningless before
We'd seen them together
