  • I couldn't find quiet
    I went out in the rain
    I was just soakin' my head to unrattle my brain
    Somebody said you disappeared in a crowd
    I didn't understand then
    I don't understand now

    Am I the one you think about when you're
    Sitting in your faintin' chair drinking pink rabbits?
    Am I the one you think about when you're
    Sitting in your faintin' chair drinking pink rabbits?

    And everybody was gone
    You were standin' in the street 'cause you were tryin' not to crack up
    It wasn't like a rain it was more like a sea
    I didn't ask for this pain it just came over me
    I love a storm, but I don't love lightning
    All the waters coming up so fast, that's right

    Am I the one you think about when you're
    Sitting in your faintin' chair drinking pink rabbits?
    Am I the one you think about when you're
    Sitting in your faintin' chair drinking pink rabbits?

    And everybody was gone
    I was standing in the street 'cause I was trying not to crack

    I was solid gold
    I was in the fight
    I was coming back from what seemed like a ruin
    I couldn't see you coming so far
    I just turn around and there you are

    I'm so surprised you want to dance with me now
    I was just getting used to living life without you around
    I'm so surprised you want to dance with me now
    You always said I held you way too high off the ground

    You didn't see me I was falling apart
    I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in the park
    You didn't see me I was falling apart
    I was a television version of a person with a broken heart
    You didn't see me I was falling apart
    I was a white girl in a crowd of white girls in a park
    You didn't see me I was falling apart
    I was a television version of a person with a broken heart

    And everybody was gone
    You were standin' in the street
    Cause you were trying not to crack up
    Now I only think about los angeles when the sun kicks out
    Now I only think about los angeles when the sun kicks out

    You said it would be painless
    The needle in the dark
    You said it would be painless
    It wasn't that at all
    You said it would be painless
    The needle in the dark
    You said it would be painless
    It wasn't that at all (when the sun kicks out)

    You said it would be painless
    The needle in the dark (when the sun kicks out)
    You said it would be painless
    It wasn't that at all Writer/s: Aaron Dessner, Matthew Berninger, Zoe Randell
