Kill Devil Falls Lyrics

Just got back from Kill Devil Falls,
Draped my waterlogged clothes in the hall,
Reach for a beer, glad that I'm here,
When I realize that you're not around

Turn on some music and then the TV,
Go through the pile of mail waiting for me
Something I spy makes me pull it aside,

A letter from your hometown

How could you leave me, you heard what I said
I'll be at the waterfall clearing my head
Soaking up nature and thinking of you
But leaving's the last thing I thought you would do
I didn't plan to stop at the bar

But Kill Devil Falls is really so far
Who knew a day would turn into a week
But I learned my lesson,
And I can still remember the last one,

But this time will be different,
Until I do it again
Stared at the ceiling for over a day
But none of my questions are answered this way

Won't make any calls I'll just bounce off the walls
'Till I go back to Kill Devil Falls
How could you leave me, you heard what I said,
I'll be at the waterfall clearing my head,
Soaking up nature and thinking of you,
But leaving's the last thing I thought you would do
I didn't plan to stop at the bar,

But Kill Devil Falls is really so far,
Who knew a day would turn into a week
But I learned my lesson,
And I can still remember the last one,

But this time will be different,
But this time will be different,
And I stand at the face of the mountain,
(don't follow me)
And I step right up to the cliff side,
(gotta I learn how to lead)
And I stare straight into the future

(tell me what do you see)
This time's gonna be different
(oh oh oh)
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls
(oh oh oh)
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls
(oh oh oh)
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls

(oh oh oh)
I learned my lesson,
And I can still remember the last one.
But this time will be different
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls
Don't go back to Kill Devil Falls!

Phish is an American rock band most noted for its extended improvisations, elongated song compositions and the varied genres represented in their song repertoire. The band was formed in 1983 in Burlington, Vermont, United States where they all attended college. The band's lineup consists of Trey Anastasio (guitar, vocals), Page McConnell (keyboards, vocals), Mike Gordon (bass, vocals) and Jon Fishman (drums, vocals, vacuum cleaner). The band went on hiatus in 2000, but returned in 2002 only to split for what seemed for good in 2004. However, on September 30, 2008, the band announced, via their website, that they would reunite for three shows on March 6th, 7th and 8th, 2009 at the Hampton Colosseum. Later the band announced a summer tour for June of 2009 beginning with a night at Fenway Park and later added more dates in late July and August, featuring 4 nights at Red Rocks to begin the tour. The band has continued to be active since with continued touring and a new album.

Although the group received little radio play or MTV exposure, Phish developed a large following by word of mouth. Phish's music has elements of many genres including jazz, bluegrass, country, heavy metal, reggae, folk, rock, ska, pop, blues, progressive rock, show tunes, classical, acoustic, barber shop quartet and calypso.

While often compared to the Grateful Dead, Phish finds their roots in jazz and alternative rock as opposed to the Dead who were more influenced by folk, country and blues.

Each Phish concert is different in terms of the songs included and the order in which they appeared, and (for many songs) in the way in which they were performed. Also unique to Phish are their large summer festivals which draw upwards of 70K people to remote areas in Maine and New York State as well as close to 100K for their epic Millennium Show in the Everglades of South Florida.

Along with Bob Dylan and The Beatles, Phish were one of the first bands to have an Internet newsgroup - rec.music.phish - launched in 1991.

In regards to Phish, Rolling Stone magazine proclaimed "Given their sense of community, their ambition and their challenging, generous performances, Phish have become the most important band of the Nineties."
