The National – You Had Your Soul With You Lyrics

You Had Your Soul With You Lyrics By The National


[Matt Berninger]
You had your soul with you
I was in no mood
Drift away, and I could forget
I had only one last feather left
I wore it on the island of my head
I had only one thing to do
And I couldn’t do it yet

[Matt Berninger]
You felt like heaven stood up with you
You said love fills you out
It moves you from the skeleton and pulls you around
I got in worse than anyone else
And I just can’t find a way to forgive myself
I had only one thing left
And I couldn’t see it yet

[Gail Ann Dorsey & Matt Berninger]
I have owed it to my heart every word I’ve said
You have no idea how hard I died when you left
If I yield to my trances
Will I get up close again?
I had only one thing to do
And I couldn’t do it yet
I had only one thing left
And I couldn’t see it yet

[Matt Berninger]
You had your soul with you
I was in no mood
You had your soul with you
I was in no mood
