The National - Turn on Me

Текст песни: Turn on Me

[Verse 1]
Do you see rhythms in the ocean water when it reflects the moon?
If it hasn't already happened to you, it’s gonna happen soon
Do the lines in your kitchen table only show you how to drown?
And your mother's angst the day you were born, the day you cut her down

[Pre-Chorus]
You used to have me by the arm
You'd walk me up the darkest stairways
Gone too high, I’m way too far
I've no idea where you are

[Verse 2]
Do leaves fall down in perfect sentences?
Do maggots crawl your name?
Do mirrors laugh at you behind your back?
Are you constantly ashamed?
Do roots slither between your feet and chase you slowly to the sea?
Do tree branches bend down and ask you if you're finally ready?

[Pre-Chorus]
You used to have me by the arm
You'd walk me up the darkest stairways
Gone too high, I'm way too far
I've no idea where you are

[Chorus]
When you turn, when you turn on me
Will I see you when you turn, when you turn on me?
Will I see you? When I turn around will you be there?
At the center of the world like you promised to be?
Will you suddenly seem like a stranger?
I can't tell anymore what you want from me

[Verse 3]
Does your family think you're too far gone?
Do you wonder if they’re right?
Are you different than you used to be?
Are you alone somewhere tonight?
Do you think maybe you’re just a little afraid and haven't really done the serious thinking?
Do I really need to hold your hand and walk you all the way up into the moonlight blinking?

[Pre-Chorus]
You used to have me by the arm
You’d walk me up the darkest stairways
I've gone too high, I'm way too far
I've no idea where you are

[Chorus]
When you turn, when you turn on me
Will I see you when you turn, when you turn on me?
Will I see you? When I turn around will you be there?
At the center of the world like you promised to be?
Will you suddenly seem like a stranger?
I can’t tell anymore what you want from me
