Oh, when I lift you up
You feel like a hundred times yourself
I wish everybody knew
What's so great about you

Oh, but your love is such a swamp
You don't think before you jump
And I said I wouldn't get sucked in
I...

This is the last time

Oh, don't tell anyone I'm here
I got Tylenol and beer
I was thinking that you'd call somebody
Closer to you

Oh, but your love is such a swamp
You're the only thing I want
And I said I wouldn't cry about it
I...

This is the last time
This is the last time

We were so under the brine
We were so vacant and kind
We were so under the brine
We were so vacant

We were so under the brine
We were so out of our minds
We were so under the brine
We were so vacant

Oh, when I lift you up
You feel like a hundred times yourself
I wish everybody knew
What's so great about you

Oh, but your love is such a swamp
You don't think before you jump
And I said I wouldn't get sucked in
I...

I won't be vacant anymore
I won't be waitin' anymore
I won't be vacant anymore
I won't be waitin' anymore
I won't be vacant anymore
I won't be waitin' anymore
I won't be vacant anymore
I won't be waitin' anymore

Jenny, I am in trouble
Can't get these thoughts out of me
Jenny, I'm seeing double
I know this changes everything

Jenny, I am in trouble
Can't get these thoughts out of me
Jenny, I'm seeing double
I know this changes everything

It takes a lot of pain to pick me up
It takes a lot of rain in the cup
Baby you gave me bad ideas
Baby you left me sad and high

Wow, these lyrics sound painfully tragic. And I still love this man's voice.

Saw this act live, warming up for REM. Just as amateurish and boring only more so. Great opportunity to get up and go grab a pretzel. 

 
can you grab me a beer, I'm hoping if I am drunk this might sound better, actually get me a tequila, about 10 shots please

I like pretzels.  Can you get me one while you're up?
Sounds like the Stereo MC's
Matt Johnson?

Both bands that started off very promising. Not much left to love today. Well that's my opinion.

прикольно. подымается настроение...
Nice filler.  
every time:
"What is that ham handed drumming?"
oh 
The guitar at the start was so promising I turned up the volume.
Oh well... {#Stupid}

Every song on this album is an absolute gem. 10/10.

Eagerly anticipating their next album.

Well, decent bottom end on this one though.
These guys put on GREAT Concerts! Wish I was able to see them again and soon! Thanks RP for sharing!

I´m so in love with this song...can´t stop listening...

 

Mostly love the "I won´t be vacant anymore...I won´t be waiting anymore..." part...you can literally feel the hurt ...


LIKE, like
Is the song title a promise?
A lot of The National songs belong on RP.  This song is no exception.

Great track from a great album from a great band...
From Ohio and this is best CD so far, have been listening to this and the Box Rebellion. 
what's with The National and this Jennifer woman?
I like this and I disagree with that guy down there.  Sort of like people who are bored are boring ya know?
Really, really liking the new one from The National. It's had a permanent spot in my car's CD player for months. This is one of my favorites from the record. Thanks to RP, I've grown to love The National.
This is the last time... Please, Bill!

So dull, so lifeless, so incoherent, so The National


Annnnd ......here we go! {#Lol} 
I quite like it... his voice reminds me a bit of the voice of Tim Kasher from Cursive. 

Bill... you should play some songs from Cursive... very interesting band.  
ugh...

I won't be listening anymore... I won't be listening anymore... to this song....
