Take a Walk (Passion Pit)

All these kind of places Make it seem like it’s been ages Tommorrow some new building will scrape the sky I love this country dearly I can feel the ladder clearly But I never thought I’d be alone to try Once I was outside Penn station Selling red and white carnations We were still alone My wife and I Before we marry, save my money Brought my dear wife over Now I work to bring my family state side But off the boat they stayed a while and Scattered across the coast Once a year I’ll see them for a week or so at most I took a walk Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk Take a walk, oh-oh-oh I took a walk Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk Take a walk, oh-oh-oh Practice isn’t perfect But the market cuts the loss I remind myself that times could be much worse My wife won’t ask me questions There's not so much to ask And she’ll never flaunt around an empty purse Once my mother-in-law came Just to stay a couple nights And decided she would stay the rest of her life I watch my little children Play some board game in the kitchen And I sit and pray they never feel my strife But then my partner called to say the pension funds were gone He made some bad investments Now the acounts are overdrawn I took a walk Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk Take a walk, oh-oh-oh I took a walk Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk Take a walk, oh-oh-oh Honey it’s your son I think I borrowed just too much We had taxes we had bills We had a lifestyle to front And tonight I swear I’ll come home And we'll make love like we’re young And tomorrow you’ll cook dinner For the neighbors and their kids We could rip apart those socialists and all their damn taxes You’ll see I am no criminal I’m down on both bad knees I’m just too much a coward to admit when I’m in need I took a walk Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk Take a walk, oh-oh-oh I took a walk Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk Take a walk, oh-oh-oh I took a walk Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk Take a walk, oh-oh-oh I took a walk Take a walk, take a walk, take a walk Take a walk, oh-oh-oh-oh
