Pearl Jam – Sirens

Sirens is the fourth song from Pearl Jam’s tenth album, Lightning Bolt. This song is, once more in the album, a quite different song from the band’s traditions, becoming a more explicit love song that was not even present on Backspacer. Sirens can be considered a ballad, some of them became very popular among the fans, just like Better Man and Last Kiss, and its hoped to become a single.

The song is a ballad but without a big hook in the chorus. Sirens is played by Mike McCready with a capo placed on the second fret of his guitar.

Pearl Jam – Sirens Lyrics:
Hear the sirens, hear the sirens
Hear the sirens, hear the circus so profound
I hear the sirens more and more in this here town
Let me catch my breath to breathe then reach across the bend

Just to know we’re safe, I am a grateful man
This light is pit, alive and I can see you clear
Oh, I could take your hand, and feel your breath
For feel that someday will be over
I pull you close, so much to lose

Knowing that nothing lasts forever
I didn’t care, before you were here
A distant laughter, with the everafter
But all things change, let this remain

Hear the sirens covering distance in the night
The sound, echoing closer, will they come for me, next time?

For every choice, mistake I made, is not my plan
To see you in the arms of another man
And if you choose to stay, I’ll wait, I’ll understand

Oh, it’s a fragile thing, this life we lead, if I think too much, I can’t get over
When by the graces, by which we live our lives with death over our shoulders
Want you to know, that should I go, I always loved you, held you high above too
I studied your face, the fear goes away.

It’s a fragile thing, this life we lead, if I think too much, I can’t get over
When by the graves, by which we live our lives with death over our shoulders
Want you to know, that should I go, I always loved you, held you high above too
I studied your face, the fear goes away, the fear goes away, the fear goes away.
