Don't Swallow the Cap

Album: Trouble Will Find Me (2013)
  • Pull out breaks behind the houses
    I don't see what's strange about this
    Tiny bubbles hang above me
    It's a sign that someone loves me
    I can hardly stand upright
    Hit my head up on the light
    I have faith but don't believe you
    This love ain't enough to leave you

    Everything I love is on the table
    Everything I love is out to sea

    I have only two emotions
    Careful fear and dead devotion
    I can't get the balance right
    Throw my marbles in the fight
    I see all the ones I wept for
    All the things I had it in for
    I won't cry until I hear
    'Cause I was not supposed to be here

    Everything I love is on the table
    Everything I love is out to sea
    I'm not alone
    I'll never be
    Into the bone
    I'll never grieve

    I'm tired, I'm freezing, I'm dumb
    When it gets so late I forget everyone
    I need somewhere to stay
    Don't think anybody I know is awake
    Calm down, it's alright
    Keep my arms the rest of the night
    When they ask what do I see
    I see a bright white beautiful heaven hangin' over me

    I'm not alone
    I'll never be
    Into the bone
    I'll never grieve
    And if you want, (too seriously)
    To see me cry. (don't swallow the cap)
    Play Let It Be (pat yourself on the back)
    Or Nevermind, (too seriously)

    There's a time to leave, there's a time to think about
    What I wanna say to the girls at the door
    I need somewhere to be
    But I can't get around the river in front of me
    Come down, it's alright
    Lead my arms the rest of the night
    When they ask what do I see
    I see a bright white beautiful heaven hangin' over me

    I'm not alone, (too seriously)
    I'll never be, (don't swallow the cap)
    Into the bone, (pat yourself on the back)
    I'll never grieve (too seriously)
    And if you want, (too seriously)
    To see me cry, (don't swallow the cap)
    Play Let It Be, (pat yourself on the back)
    Or Nevermind, (too seriously)Writer/s: Aaron Dessner, Bryce Dessner, Matthew D. Berninger
