Day I Die (The National)

I don't need you, I don't need you Besides I barely ever see you anymore And when I do it feels you're only halfway there Young mothers love me even ghosts of Girlfriends call from Cleveland They will meet me anytime and anywhere The day I die, the day I die Where will we be? The day I die, the day I die Where will we be? Don't do this, I don't do this to you Don't expect me to enjoy it 'Cause I really don't have the courage not to turn the volume up inside my ears For years I used to put my head inside the speakers In the hallway when you get too high and talk forever The day I die, the day I die Where will we be? The day I die, the day I die Where will we be? The day I die, the day I die Where will we be? The day I die, the day I die Where will we be? I get a little punchy with the vodka just like my great uncle Valentine Jester did But he had to deal with those people like you who made no goddamn common sense I'd rather walk all the way home right now than to spend one more second in this place I'm exactly like you Valentine, just come outside and leave with me Let's just get high enough to see our problems Let's just get high enough to see our fathers' houses The day I die, the day I die Where will we be? The day I die, the day I die Where will we be? The day I die, the day I die Where will we be? The day I die, the day I die Where will we be?
