Cardinal Song (The National)

Never look her in the eyes Never tell the truth If she knows you're paper You know she'll have to burn you Never tell the one you want that you do Save it for the deathbed When you know you kept her wanting you And do everything she'd never do Fall asleep with stranger's wives The wild wives of unknown men Good for you, you've just become Just another one of them Never say you miss her Never say a word And do everything she'd never do Don't let her see your cardinal eyes Don't let her see your cardinal eyes Let her treat you like a criminal So you can treat her like a priest Girls forgive my human mind Girls forgive me one more time Never tell the one you love that you do Save it for the deathbed And do everything she'd never do Don't let her see your cardinal eyes Don't let her see your cardinal eyes Jesus christ you have confused me Cornered, wasted, blessed and used me Forgive me girls i am confused Stiff and pissed and lost and loose Jesus christ you have confused me Cornered, wasted, blessed and used me Forgive me girls i am confused Stiff and pissed and lost and loose
