perfect song/bitters and absolut

The National, demiştim; şu iki şarkısı ile devam edelim:

Perfect Song

ten years older than i was
what i brought you down to see,
what i thought would make you fall in love

wearing off on our dreams
someday man i'm gonna be no different than the other rivers
i tried to look at you but i couldnt break the ice
you stood out there for an hour freezing
put your hand around my back
i guess you thought i needed that

i never try to find you
i hope you don't remember me
i hope your not alone

wanted me to take you home
you said you'd rather be alone
i never thought of that
car is warm and we had wine
but i couldn't find the perfect song


now our furniture for the one with crows feet and i can't even remember the call
sometimes i can feel your weight when i close my eyes
seven times i was under you

i never try to find you
i hope you dont remember me
i hope your not alone
i don't wanna know what your thinking
i'm looking out the window
just fucking drinking


shallow frame and shaky sticks but i know there's a river in me
shallow minded adult tricks but i know there's a river in me

Bitters and Absolut

sweetie, you don't look so good
your bottom lip is bleeding.
i cut it on your collarbone
go on, go back to sleep.

sugar, who were you thinking of?
you woke me with your breathing.
honey, how am i supposed to tell?

if i were a spy in the world inside your head
would i be your wife in a better life you led?

thought i saw you on the stairs
of this american century.
i went up through all the years
you were years ahead of me.
remember when you dipped your hand?
i never saw it coming.

you took the wind out of me.

if i were a spy in the world inside your head
would i be your wife in the better life you led?

i'd do you better than you do
i'd do you better than you ever will
when i am on bitters and absolut.
