Buenos Aires Beach (The War on Drugs)

My barricades feel open now So I leave behind the bridge With a flag with a western wave and a simple stitch to fix I'll hold myself together now as you take me through the ditch Where the sky crumbled on the floors You'll sweep me off of my back You'll save me from the rumble you spoke of before And the one who saved you Ain't the one who you were banking on When your highs were cutting through my lows Enter through the side door please I know you wish to speak with me Of old neglected promises Of stolen souvenirs How you could hear the ocean But you could not see the breeze When the sky was setting on a Buenos Aires beach And the sun was shining on the one I wish to see And the fates are shifting under land You're beating on the floors You're sleeping on the same ones you've been sweeping on You're the one that saved me And the one that I was banking on When your highs were cutting through my lows So hold me up against the tree You used to measure me in feet And set your sights to green And all the cross-town boys and on They show up with the sea shells in their eyes But you know what they want By the glow of your skin And you can overdress for him But it will soon grow old And this winter it came to pass So much slower than the last And now there's nothing left to grasp In our hands and nothing left to catch So they'll speak of the past In the future perfect tense Of places we will go Before we grow old
