The National – Turtleneck Lyrics

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

Hope my mother mentioned dad will dance with me
I’d like to spin a while around the copperwood tree
There’s something about her eyes, I think her roots are rotten
This must be the reason she wears her hair up in knots

Oh no, this is so embarrassing
Oh, the pissing fits
Crying on their doorsteps and teachers losing grip
Some of them are so out of style, I cannot save them
I’ll just get whatever my salvation gave them

Keep the weed next to the bed
Light the wall, check the lip
Dim the lights a little lower
Hide your back or shrug your shoulders
Give the gift, then fix your hair
You have to get this turtleneck

The poor, they leave their cellphones in the bathrooms of the rich
And when they try to turn them off everything they switch to
Is just another man, in shitty suits, everybody’s cheering for
This must be the genius we’ve been waiting years for

Oh no, this is so embarrassing
Oh, the pissing fits
Crying on their doorsteps and teachers losing grip
Some of them are so out of style, I cannot save them
This must be the death that my salvation gave them

Keep the good weed near the bed
And light the wall, check the lip
Dim the lights a little lower
Hide your back or shrug your shoulders
Give the gift, then fix your hair
You have to get this turtleneck

Keep the good weed near the bed
Light the wall, check the lip
Dim the lights a little lower
Hide your back or shrug your shoulders
Give the gift, then fix your hair
You have to get this turtleneck

● “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
