Local Natives – When Am I Gonna Lose You Lyrics

When Am I Gonna Lose You Lyrics By Local Natives


Wait, when am I gonna lose you?
How will I let you slip through?
Careless or unkind?
Trace the curving on the coastline
Santa Lucia cliffside
Stay here for the night
I remember you said
Everything has its place
Now we’ll lie in our bed
Wondering how to explain

You
When am I gonna lose
You
When am I gonna lose
You
When am I gonna lose
You
When am I gonna lose

Take another one if you need it
Do you already feel it?
I felt it from the start
A gray silhouette of you dancing
A shadow play that we’re cast in
On the cabin walls

You were floating to me
In a slow motion fade
I could finally see
That you believed in fate

You
When am I gonna lose
You
When am I gonna lose
You
When am I gonna lose

I remember you closing the shutters
And laying down by my side
And the light that was still slipping through
It was painting your body in stripes

I remember the trees summoned down
Like an archangel choir
And the ocean was all we could see
And I knew I wanted you

When am I gonna lose
You
When am I gonna lose
You
When am I gonna lose
