The National – Grease In Your Hair Lyrics

The National Grease In Your Hair Lyrics

This machine’s a backwards thinker
It looks for you until its neck hurts
Not so hard to be a person
If you’ve got something you can reference

Grease in your hair, fingernail polish
Water balloon eyes, totally honest

I’ve worked up a sincere speech
I just don’t know how I’m going to say it
The second I stand up I freeze
My only move here is to faint

Don’t splash apart, everything changes
All jumbled up, wide open spaces
Grease in your hair, fingernail polish
Water balloon eyes, totally honest

Down we go on the grass
Magnets make machines go crazy
I used to know you well
You’d give me such a future feeling
We’re in the middle of
Some kind of cosmic rearrangement
You were so funny then
And I kept thinking I would catch it

Stay in one state, nothing is stable
Whip on a cape, step on a cable

I have no more feeling for it
I have no more frame of mind
I have no more feeling for it
I have no more frame of mind

Grease in your hair, fingernail polish
Water balloon eyes, totally honest
Don’t splash apart, everything changes
All jumbled up, wide open spaces

Down we go on the grass
Magnets make machines go crazy
I used to know you well
You’d give me such a future feeling
We’re in the middle of
Some kind of cosmic rearrangement
You were so funny then
And I kept thinking I would catch it
I kept thinking I would catch it
I kept thinking I would catch it
I kept thinking I would catch it
