Death Cab For Cutie – Bad Reputation lyrics

I know I got a bad reputation
And it isn't just talk talk talk
If I could only give you everything
You know I haven't got
I couldn't have one conversation
If it wasn't for the lies lies lies
And still I wanna tell you everything
Til I close my eyes

Suddenly I'm on the street
Seven years disappeared
Below my feet
Been breakin down
Do you want me now? Do you want me now?

Suddenly I'm down in Harold Square
Looking in a crowd
Your face is everywhere
Been turning round
Do you want me now? Do you want me now?

Don't try to be an inspiration
You're just wasting your time time time
You know I'm 'bout the best I'll ever be
I see it in your eyes
I know I got a bad reputation
And it isn't just talk talk talk
If I could only give you everything
You know I haven't got
I couldn't have one conversation
If it wasn't for the lies lies lies
And still I wanna tell you everything
Til I close my eyes

Suddenly I'm on the street
Seven years disappeared
Below my feet
Been breakin down
Do you want me now? Do you want me now?

Suddenly I'm in another place
Looking in the crowd
I think I see your face
Been turning round
Do you want me now? Do you want me now?

Do you want me now? Do you want me now? (2x)

Don't you think I've heard the talk
Nobody's gonna tell me who to love
Been breakin' down
Do you want me now? Do you want me now?

Suddenly I'm in Hello Square
Looking in a crowd
Your face is everywhere
Been turning round
Do you want me now? Do you want me now?

Do you want me now? Do you want me now? (2x)

But I'm just breakin' down down down down down
Been breakin' down down down down down (3x)
