The National – Day I Die Lyrics

Day I Die by The National
Album: Sleep Well Beast
Released : 2017
Genre: Indie Rock

I don’t need you, I don’t need you
Besides I barely ever see you anymore
And when I do it feels you’re only halfway there
Young mothers love me even ghosts of
Girlfriends call from Cleveland
They will meet me anytime and anywhere

The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?
The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?

Don’t do this, I don’t do this to you
Don’t expect me to enjoy it
‘Cause I really don’t have the courage not to turn the volume up inside my ears
For years I used to put my head inside the speakers
In the hallway when you get too high and talk forever

The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?
The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?

The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?
The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?

I get a little punchy with the vodka just like my great uncle Valentine Jester did
But he had to deal with those people like you who made no goddamn common sense
I’d rather walk all the way home right now than to spend one more second in this place
I’m exactly like you Valentine, just come outside and leave with me

Let’s just get high enough to see our problems
Let’s just get high enough to see our fathers’ houses

The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?
The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?

The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?
The day I die, the day I die
Where will we be?

○ Listen to “The National” Songs

● “I Need My Girl ”

[ Quotable ]
I’m under the gun again
I know I was a 45-percenter then
I know I was a lot of things
But I am good, I am grounded
Davy says that I look taller
But I can’t get my head around it

● “About Today ”

[ Quotable ]
How close am I
To losing you?
Hey
Are you awake?
Yeah, I’m right here
Well, can I ask you
About today?

● “Fake Empire ”

[ Quotable ]
Turn the light, out say goodnight
No thinking for a little while
Let’s not try to figure out everything at once
It’s hard to keep track of you falling through the sky
We’re half awake in a fake empire
