The National – I'll Still Destroy You lyrics
[Verse 1]
It's so easy to set off
The molecules and the caplets
They all have something against me
Nothing I do makes me feel different

[Pre-Chorus 1]
This one's like your sister's best friends in a bath calling you to join them
Can't avoid them
This one's like your mother's arms when she was young and sunburned in the '80s
It lasts forever

[Verse 2]
The more level they have me
The more I cannot stand me
I have helpless friendships
And bad taste in liquids

[Pre-Chorus 2]
This one's like the wilderness without the world
I'm gonna miss those long nights with the windows open
I keep re-reading the same lines always up at 5am every morning
Like a baby

It's just the lights coming on
It's just the lights coming on

[Verse 3]
I have no positions
No point of view or vision
I'm just trying to stay in touch with anything I'm still in touch with

[Pre-Chorus 3]
The sky's getting white
I can't find a lighter anywhere I'm going crazy
But I'm not crazy
Put your heels against the wall
I swear you got a little bit taller since I saw you
I'll still destroy you

It's just the lights coming on
It's just the lights coming on
