Arcade Fire – Keep The Car Running lyrics
Every night my dream's the same.
Same old city with a different name.
Men are coming to take me away.
I don't know why but I know I can't stay.

There's a weight that's pressing down.
Late at night you can hear the sound.
Even the noise you make when you sleep.
Can't swim across a river so deep.
They know my name 'cause I told it to them,
But they don't know where And they don't know
When It's coming, when It's coming.

There's a fear I keep so deep,
Knew it's name since before I could speak:
Aaaah aaaaaah aaaaah aaaaaah
They know my name 'cause I told it to them,
But they don't know where And they don't know
When It's coming, Oh! when It's coming

Keep the car running

If some night I don't come home,
Please don't think I've left you alone.
The same place animals go when they die,
You can't climb across a mountain so high.
The same city where I go when I sleep,
You can't swim across a river so deep.
They know my name 'cause I told it to them,
But they don't know where
And they don't know
When It's coming, Oh! when is it coming?

Keep the car running
Keep the car running
Keep the car running
