The National - Apartment Story Lyrics

Be still for a second while I try and try to pin your flowers on
La, la, la, la, la
Can you carry my drink? I have everything else
I can tie my tie all by myself
I'm getting tied, I'm forgetting why

Oh, we're so disarming, darling, everything we did believe
Is diving, diving, diving, diving off the balcony
Tired and wired, we ruin too easy
Sleep in our clothes and wait for winter to leave

Hold ourselves together
With our arms around the stereo for hours
La, la, la, la, la, la, la, la
While it sings to itself or whatever it does
When it sings to itself of its long lost loves
I'm getting tied, I'm forgetting why

Tired and wired, we ruin too easy
Sleep in our clothes and wait for winter to leave
And I?ll be with you, behind the couch
When they come on a different day, just like this one

We?ll stay inside till somebody finds us
Do whatever the TV tells us
Stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz for days
We?ll stay inside till somebody finds us
Do whatever the TV tells us
Stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz

So worry not, all things are well
We?ll be alright, we have our looks and perfume

Stay inside till somebody finds us
Do whatever the TV tells us
Stay inside our rosy-minded fuzz

So worry not, all things are well
We?ll be alright, we have our looks and perfume on
