The National – Born To Beg lyrics
[Verse 1]
Crushed on the train
We'd stand by the window
Sweat through the hard parts of June
We hugged it out and ducked it on purpose
Nothing else I needed to do

[Chorus]
I was born, born to beg for you

[Verse 2]
Later that year in the back of the Warsaw
I thought you and I might be okay
Spinning and quiet
You leaned in against me
Said, "I'm gonna have it all some day."

[Chorus]
I was born to beg for you
I was born, born to beg for you

[Bridge]
I'd cry, crawl
I'd do it all
Teakettle love, I'd do anything
I'd cry, crawl
I'd do it all
Teakettle love, I'd do anything

[Break]
New York is older
And changing its skin again
It dies every ten years
And then it begins again
If your heart was in it
I'd stay a minute
I'm dying to be taken apart

[Chorus]
I was born to beg for you
I was born to beg for you

[Bridge]
I'd cry, crawl
I'd do it all
Teakettle love, I'd do anything
I'd cry, crawl
I'd do it all
Teakettle love, I'd do anything
