Without Permission (The National)

Oh, well I just don't know How you could go without permission Cause where (well?) if you're not there Well I just don't care for this omission Every moment brings me down when you're not around But all I'm asking for is come back for just one day So where did you go And do you now know how to be happy Cause here well it's pretty clear When you're not near me I am unhappy Every moment brings me down when you're not around But all I'm asking for is come back for just one day And make it worth the while just to see your smile That's all I'm asking for Oh I've come to know You had to go without permission Cause it was how, how I wore you down And how I dragged you round my sole ambition Every moment brings me down when you're not around But all I'm asking for is come back for just one day And make it worth the while just to see your smile That's all I'm asking for, my dear
