The National – Nobody Else Will Be There lyrics

[Verse 1]
You said we're not so tied together
What did you mean?
Meet me in the stairwell in a second
For a glass of gin

[Chorus]
Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there
Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there

[Verse 2]
Can you remind me the building you live in
I'm on my way
It's getting cold again but New York's gorgeous
It's a subway day

[Chorus]
Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there
Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there

[Verse 3]
Why are we still out here?
Holding our coats
We look like children
Goodbyes always take us half an hour
Can't we just go home?

[Verse 4]
Hey baby, where were you back there
When I needed your help?
I thought that if I stuck my neck out
I'd get you out of your shell
My faith is sick and my skin is thin as ever
I need you alone
Goodbyes always take us half an hour
Can't we just go home?

[Chorus]
Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there
Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there
