The National – Empire Line Lyrics

Empire Line by The National
Album: Sleep Well Beast
Released : 2017
Genre: Indie Rock

You’ve been sleeping for miles
So what did you see?
Here the skies been falling white flowers
And there’s ice in all the trees
I’ve been tapping the table
I’ve been hoping to drink
There’s a line that goes all the way from my childhood to you

Can’t you find a way?
Can’t you find a way?
You are in this too
Can’t you find a way?

I’ve been trying to see where we’re going, but you’re so hard to follow
And I don’t think we’re getting anywhere any time soon
We have so much in common, I don’t know what I’m expecting
You just keep saying so many things that I wish you won’t

Can’t you find a way?
Can’t you find a way?
You are in this too
Can’t you find a way?

I’ve been talking about you to myself
Cause there’s nobody else
And I want what I want
And I want everything
I want everything
I’ve been talking about you to myself
Cause there’s nobody else
And I want what I want
And I want everything
I want everything

Can’t you find a way?
Can’t you find a way?
You are in this too
Can’t you find a way?

○ 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
