Pink Skies - Bryan Zach Lyrics

Bryan Zach CHORDS

Pink Skies

The kids are in town for a funeral
So pack the car and dry your eyes
I know they got plenty of young blood left in 'em
And plenty nights under pink skies you taught 'em to enjoy

[Verse 1]
So clean the house, clear the drawers, mop the floors, stand tall
Like no one's ever been here before or at all
And don't you mention all the inches that are scr*ped on the doorframe
We all know you tiptoed up to 4'1" back in '08

[Chorus]
If you could see 'em now, you'd be proud
But you'd think they's yuppiеs
Your funeral was beautiful
I bet God hеard you comin'

[Verse 2]
The kids are in town for a funeral
And the grass all smells the same as the day you broke your arm swingin'
On that kid out on the river
You bailed him out, never said a thing about Jesus or the way he's livin'


[Chorus]
If you could see 'em now, you'd be proud
But you'd think they's yuppies
Your funeral was beautiful
I bet God heard you comin'
[Instrumental Interlude]

[Chorus]
If you could see 'em now, you'd be proud
But you'd think they's yuppies
Your funeral was beautiful
I bet God heard you comin'

[Outro]
The kids are in town for a funeral
So pack the car and dry your eyes
I know they got plenty of young blood left in 'em
And plenty nights under pink skies you taught 'em to enjoy

The lyrics of a song describe a gloomy funeral in which the speaker encourages people to prepare for a journey and keep their calm despite the emotional weight. The speaker mentions "plenty of young blood" and "plenty of nights under pink skies," implying that the younger generation has hope or vitality in the face of loss. The concluding line, "You taught 'em to enjoy," could imply that the deceased individual gave a lesson about finding joy and accepting life.
The song is set in a tiny community, where everyone from the previous generation returns for the burial. The speaker considers what they left behind and what they bring with them, emphasizing the combination of pride and isolation. The song also mentions yuppies, which are young urban professionals or upwardly mobile professionals who work high-paying positions in cities.
The lyrics portray a mix of pride, reflection, and irony or cynicism, implying that if someone were to observe anything now, they may feel proud but also perceive it differently, possibly describing others as "yuppies." The idea of a beautiful burial and God hearing someone approaching adds depth, potentially implying a spiritual or afterlife perspective.
