The Gaslight Anthem – National Anthem lyrics

I never will forget you my American love
And I'll always remember you, wild as they come
And though if I saw you I'd pretend not to know
The place where you were in my heart is now closed
I already live with too many ghosts

Now everybody lately is living up in space
Flying through transmissions on invisible airwaves
With everything discovered just waiting to be known
What's left for God to teach from his throne?
And who will forgive us when he's gone?

So, take what you need now honey
And do what you like
Don't worry about me Mama, I'm alright

And I can't stand the weather, no I never liked the rain
We drink on the job then we go home early
And I remember she used to look so good in that dress
Now she just screams how I promised her more than this
Take it easy baby, it ain't over yet

So, take what you need now honey
And do what you like
Don't worry about me Mama, I'm alright

And if there's something you need
And if there's something you find
Whatever gets you through the night
Whatever gets you through the night

I never will forget you my american love
And I'll always remember you wild as they do come

    He's singing about an old love of his that he really cared about. He will never forget her, but he can't go back because it is too hard for him. No one around him really knows what is going on or what the future will bring. They just live in the moment hoping that despite mistakes they make they will be forgiven. He's trying to move on with his life, but he still thinks of her. It seems he wishes things could be different and that he wants her to know that he will still be here for her if she needs him.
