You All Loved Him Once
Conor Oberst Song Lyrics

Artist: Conor Oberst
Album: Salutations (2017)


You all loved him once
And not without cause
He fed you through the winter
He led you through the fog
You hid behind his body to be sheltered from the mob
You all loved him once
And not without cause.

You all loved him once
When his glory was unmatched
Your signal when to celebrate was the bugle of his laugh
But when it came time to stand with him
You scattered with the rats
You all loved him once
That time has passed.

You all loved him once
When the future was opaque
His reassuring visions were the pillars of your faith
Through a thousand false horizons
He could always fly it straight
You all loved him once
That turned to hate.

You all loved him once
An uncommon love at that
What you saw as a pedestal
Was his elevated path
So to satisfy the philistines
You stabbed him in the back
You all loved him once
Imagine that.

You all loved him once
You ate out of his hand
He mirrored your confusion
So that you might understand
When your soul was an experiment
He drew a diagram
You all loved him once
It ended bad.

You all loved him once
And not without cause
He helped carry your baggage
When your strength was nearly gone
Though more and more was put on him
He tried his best to take it on
You all loved him once
Not without cause
You all loved him once
Now he is gone.
