The National – 29 Years lyrics

Could you tell me the enchantment and say goodbye
I met a girl called disillusionment

Could you tell her I made the headlines
Says 'boy draws wings on everything'

Could you tell her to check the headlines
Says 'boy finds angels in the river'

You know I dreamed about you
For 29 years before
I saw you
You know I dreamed about you
I missed you for 29 years

Birds are flying out of water
Underneath the sky
I run up to the rainbow girl
Just to pass her by
I'll never have a change of heart
My swan will never sing
I have no heart the swan is gone
And now I wear the wings

You know I dreamed about you
For 29 years before
I saw you
You know I dreamed about you
I missed you for 29 years

You know I dreamed about you
For 29 years before
I saw you
You know I dreamed about you
I missed you for 29 years

You know I dreamed about you
For 29 years before
I saw you
