Slipping Husband (The National)

Sit down dear we gotta talk You're acting like a kid We don't wanna hear about The things you never did You coulda been a legend But you became a father That's what you are today That's what you are today Spending all your time Somewhere inside your head Haunted by the important Life you coulda lead But your kisses aren't enough To keep your kids in line So you better straighten out yourself And give your baby time Cause if you don't give her what she needs She'll get it where she can She's lonely man Don't leave yourself alone for too many days Sooner than you know your gonna start slipping You'll end up talking to the ghost Of your wife as if you knew her Your eyes will put her everywhere And spending all your time Somewhere inside your head Haunted by the important Life you coulda lead You'll fuck yourself to clear your head You'll close your door and go to bed You'll try to sleep without a dream That's where she finds you That's where she finds you Don't leave yourself alone for too many days Sooner than you know your gonna start slipping Dear we better get a drink in you Before you start to bore us Dear we better get a drink in you Before you start to bore us Dear we better get a drink in you Before you start to bore us "Don't forget the alcohol oooh baby oooh baby ..."
