Vampire Weekend – Run

Every dollar counts
And every morning hurts
We mostly work to live
Until we live to work
She said, “You know,
There’s nowhere else to go.”
But change in rows
It struck me that the two of us could RUN.

Worlds away from cars
And all the styles and bars
Where a little bit of competition means so much
And a little bit of change is all your little fingers touch
I said, “You know,
There’s nowhere else to go.”
But change in rows
It struck me that the two of us could RUN.

‘Cause honey with you
Is the only honest way to go
And I could take two
But I really couldn’t ever know

Honey with you
And a little powered radio
We could try.

So lead my feet away
‘Cuz all they do is stay
And I don’t think your eyes
Have ever looked surprised.

She said, “You know,
There’s no where left to go.”
But we have found
It struck me that the two of us could RUN

‘Cause honey with you
Is the only honest way to go
And I can take two
For I really couldn’t ever know

Honey with you
And a little powered radio
We could try.


Vampire Weekend – Cousins

You found a sweater on the ocean floor
They’re gonna find it if you didn’t close the door.
You and this model sit outside the side
In a house on a street they wouldn’t park on at night.

Dad was a risk taker. His was a shoe maker.
You greatest hits 2006, little listmaker.
Caught in the melody, you wait in the car.
You were born with ten fingers and you’re gonna use them all.

Interest in girls as I discovered myself
If your odd-life was greater
You’ll be toastin’ my health
If an interest in culture,
You should be lining the walls.
When your birth right is interest
You could just accrue it all.

Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
Its a line that is always running.
Me and my cousins, and you and your cousins,
I can feel it coming

You could turn your back on the bitter world

Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
Its a line that is always running.
Me and my cousins, and you and your cousins,
I can feel it coming

Me and my cousins and you and your cousins
Its a line that is always running.
Me and my cousins, and you and your cousins,
I can feel it coming
