My Favourite Song of 2020

Kyoto by Phoebe Bridgers is my favourite song released in 2020.

It always invokes powerful emotions in me and makes me think of my relationship with someone in my life.


Day off in Kyoto, got bored at the temple Looked around at the 7-11 The band took the speed train, went to the arcade I wanted to go, but I didn't You called me from a payphone They still got payphones It cost a dollar a minute To tell me you're getting sober And you wrote me a letter But I don't have to read it I'm gonna kill you If you don't beat me to it Dreaming through Tokyo skies I wanted to see the world Then I flew over the ocean And I changed my mind (Ooh) Sunset's been a freak show on the weekend So I've been driving out to the suburbs To park at the Goodwill and stare at the chem trails With my little brother He said you called on his birthday You were off by like ten days But you get a few points for tryin' Remember getting the truck fixed when you let us drive it 25 felt like flying I don't forgive you But please don't hold me to it Born under Scorpio skies I wanted to see the world Through your eyes until it happened Then I changed my mind Guess I lied I'm a liar Who lies 'Cause I'm a liar

You can purchase Kyoto as part of the album Punisher on Bandcamp.
