The Hold Steady - Hanover Camera Lyrics


The lighting made it look like she’s been captured
Sitting up and staring into space
Suddenly she turned to me and said you seem pretty harmless
The dosage was open for debate

The party with the python in the shower
Heather with the henna on her hands
Once we started mixing it with sodium bicarbonate
We got back stage and hung out with the band

I went down around the Fisherman I was looking for a hook
I was hoping that I’d find something by lunchtime
The coolest thing about her was she had her own apartment
It’s still an inconvenient place to die

The party with the python in the shower
Heather with the henna on her hands
Once we started mixing it with sodium bicarbonate
We got back stage and hung out with the band

They said you’re the one that really makes it happen
If you’re ever on the west coast give a shout
The manager asked if we’d break off a little package
The singer put his finger in my mouth

We were up against the miracle
Maxed out every night
Our knees were shot from way too many prayers
I swear I saw soldiers selling single cigarettes
Stationed about halfway up the stairs

Yeah sure
At certain speeds it all becomes a blur
And we’re friends
But it seems a little soft around the edge

And it starts
Once she turns the torch into the dark
It ends
Once she puts her hand over the lens

I remember you were tender when you tried to make it better
You sang to me that song about the shipwreck
The hand that held the camera was trying not to tremble
The lighting made her look like she’s a hostage

Yeah sure
At certain speeds we all feel insecure
Yeah sure
The borderlines they smear into a blur

It starts
We sing and put our hands over our hearts
It ends
When Heather puts the cap back on the lens
