The National – Conversation 16 lyrics

I think tke kids are in trouble
Do not know what all the trouble's are for
Give them ice for their fevers
You're the only thing I ever want anymore

Live on coffee and flowers
Try not to wonder what the weather will be
I figured out what we're missing
Tell you miserable things after you are asleep

Now we'll leave the silver city cuz all the silver girls
Gave us black dreams
Leave the silver city cuz all the silver girls
Everything means everything

It's a Hollywood summer
You can never believe the shitty thoughts I think
Meet our friends out for dinner
When I said what I said I didn't mean anything

We belong in a movie
Try to hold it together til our friends are gone
We should swim in a fountain
I do not want to disappoint anyone

Now we'll leave the silver city cuz all the silver girls
Gave us black dreams
Leave the silver city to all the silver girls
Everything means everything

I was afraid
I'd eat your brains
I was afraid
I'd eat your brains

Cuz I'm evil
Cuz I'm evil

I'm a confident liar
Have my head in the oven so you know where I'll be
I try to be more romantic
I wanna believe in everything you believe

But I was less than amazing
Do not know what all the trouble's are for
I fall asleep in your branches
You're the only thing I ever want anymore

Now we'll leave the silver city cuz all the silver girls
Gave us black dreams
Leave the silver city to all the silver girls
Everything means everything

I was afraid
I'd eat your brains
I was afraid
I'd eat your brains

Cuz I'm evil
Cuz I'm evil
Cuz I'm evil
