The National – Pretty Forever lyrics

What would she do?
If she could kick time?
Would she go back?
Her arms were mine

Would you go back to four weeks ago?
And tell her everything
Whoever everything

How could she pick
And how could she say
She's already made too many mistakes
She's first at the walls, little baby ones

She tried to cage it if she weren't too smart for that
If she weren't too smart for that

She wants be happy forever
She just wants to be high
She wants to be pretty forever
She just wants to be tied

She be your mother if she had a choice
She'd make more money if she were a boy
We put her away, but she'd try it again
She'd try it again, and keep her mouth shut
Yeah, she'd keep her mouth shut

What would we do?
If it wouldn't matter
We'd still fall apart
One way or another
So would the city
And so would the east
And so on
And so on

She wants to be happy forever
She just wants to be high
She wants to be pretty forever
She just wants to be tied
