Weird goodbyes

Weird goodbyes


Memorize the bathwater, memorize the air
There'll come a time I'll wanna know I was here
Names on the doorframes, inches and ages
Handprints in concrete at the softest stages

I don't know why I don't try harder
I feel like throwin' towels into water

Get it down to nothin', everything that matters
Fever flashes, eyelashes and traffic patterns
Humidity, history, chemistry and panic
Swimsuits in the windows of electric minivans
[Refrain: Matt Berninger with Justin Vernon]
I don't know why I don't try harder
I've been goin' down some, some strange water

Move forward now, there's nothin' to do
Can't turn around, I can't follow you
Your coat's in my car, I guess you forgot
It's crazy the things we let go of
It finally hits me, a mile's drive
The sky is leaking, the windshield's crying
I'm feelin' sacred, my soul is stripped
Radio's painful, the words are clipped

The grief it gets me, the weird goodbyes
My car is creepin', I think it's dyin'
I'm pullin' over until it heals
I'm on a shoulder of lemon fields

What was I even leavin' for?
I keep goin' back and forth
I think now I'm about to see
Didn't know how sad it'd be

Memorize the bathwater, memorize the air
There'll come a time I'll wanna know when I was here
Names on the doorframes, inches and ages
Handprints in concrete at the softest stages

I don't know why I don't try harder
I feel like throwin' towels into water

Move forward now, there's nothin' to do
Can't turn around, I can't follow you
Your coat's in my car, I guess you forgot
It's crazy the things we let go of
It finally hits me, a mile's drive
The sky is leaking, the windshield's crying
I'm feelin' sacred, my soul is stripped
Radio's painful, the words are clipped

The grief it gets me, the weird goodbyes
My car is creepin', I think it's dyin'
I'm pullin' over until it heals
I'm on a shoulder of lemon fields
The grief it gets me, the weird goodbyes
My car is creepin', I think it's dyin'
I'm pullin' over until it heals
I'm on a shoulder of lemon fields

Biografia

The National are an indie-rock band from Cincinnati, Ohio. Although they released a self-titled debut album in 2001, they didn't attract much attention until Sad Songs For Dirty Lovers (2003) which received warm praise from critics. Alligator (2005) was something of a breakthrough, garnering several glowing reviews from prominent music websites. Their fourth album, Boxer (2007) did even better, and even earned them a slot performing on the Late Show with David Letterman. At the end of 2007, several magazines and critics named Boxer as one of their favorite albums of the year.
