Nada Surf – Animal lyrics
Well I used to get high
And dance all around the house
Cleaning rearranging
While I'd let it all out

Those happy times I'd say to myself
This is it don't stop
All will be well
If you only never stop the clock

You gotta learn to cut losses
And recognize new truths
Or you'll never get anywhere that is of any use

Sometimes you can't see the sea
Even from a boat
So whatever hints you get
You better hurry and take note

I'm here because I knew that this time
I'd be haunted
Visited by peaceful ghosts
Who knew what I really wanted

Even so benign
Could be you and I making toast
I'm here because they call it falling
And I fell so slow
But I heard you calling
But now you're gone
And you're all I want

I forgot that's what people do
They pair off two by two
Until one of them turns blue

I don't have much practice
A really needing someone
So I need you to show me how
It can be sensibly done

'Cause I need you like
A string needs a kite
To get to the sky

I look for the sound of wind
To put in my headphones
To help these walls dissolve
Take me to another zone

'Cause I'm an animal
And I have one life
You're an animal
And you have one life
