Countdown

Album: Wolfgang Amadeus Phoenix (2009)
  • Countdown unless you're juvenile, let's go
    God bless you're missed somewhere
    We're sick for the big sun
    It doesn't matter what you did
    And if you did like you've been told

    True...and everlasting, that's what you want
    True...
    True...and everlasting, that's what you want
    Don't say no, you're breakfast eaten alone
    Sister let go, you're borderline withdrawn
    Down and lit from the bottom
    There's a misfit

    Better than looks
    Better than looks
    Better than looks
    Better than looks
    We're sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick
    We're sick for the big sun
    Alone though and drip drip drip drip drip drip drip
    I realize that too

    Your lonesome will
    Is this knowledge?
    As forgiven as you know somewhere
    Your face will remain on
    It doesn't matter what you did
    And if you didn't ride, let's go
    Could...an everlasting, that's what you want
    Cool, cool...and everlasting that's what you want
    Don't say no, you're breakfast eaten alone
    Do you remember when twenty-one years was old?
    Down and lit
    It doesn't matter that you killed us

    Better than looks
    Better than looks
    Better than looks
    Better than looks
    We're sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick sick
    We're sick for the big sun
    Alone and drip drip drip drip drip drip drip
    I realize that too

    True, true and everlasting
    Didn't last that long
    We're the lonesome
    We're the lonesome
    Yeah
    True and everlasting
    Didn't last that long

    True, true and everlasting
    Didn't last that long
    We're lonesome
    We're the lonesome
    Yeah
    True and everlasting
    Didn't last that long
    We're the lonesome
    We're the lonesome Writer/s: CHRISTIAN MAZZALAI, FREDERIC MOULIN, LAURENT MAZZALAI, THOMAS CROQUET
