The National – Once Upon a Poolside Lyrics

The National Once Upon a Poolside Lyrics (feat. Sufjan Stevens)

Don’t make this any harder
Everybody’s waiting
Walk-on’s almost over
Teenagers on ice
Try to keep my distance
Talking of forgiveness
Once upon a poolside
Underneath the lights

What was the worried thing you said to me?

I’ll follow you everywhere
While you work the room
I don’t know how you do it
Tangerine perfume
I’m not doing anyone
Any kind of favors
Watching airplanes land
Sink into the pavement

What was the worried thing you said to me?

I can’t keep talking, I can’t stop shaking
I can’t keep track of everything I’m taking
Everything is different, why do I feel the same?
Am I asking for too much? Can’t hear what you’re saying

What was the worried thing you said to me?
I thought we could make it through anything

This is the closest we’ve ever been
And I have no idea what’s happening
Is this how this whole thing is gonna end?
This is the closest we’ve ever been

Don’t make this any harder
Everybody’s waiting
Walk-on’s almost over
Teenagers on ice
Try to keep my distance
Talking of forgiveness
Once upon a poolside
Underneath the lights

What was the worried thing you said to me?
I thought we could make it through anything
