So we're not so tied together
What did you know?
Meet me in the stairwell in a second
For a glass of gin

Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there
Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there

Can you remind me the building you live in
I'm on my way
It's getting cold again but New York's gorgeous
It's a subway day

Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there
Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there

Why are we still out here?
Holding our coats
We look like children
Goodbyes always take us half an hour
Can't we just go home?

Hey baby, where were you back then?
When I needed your hand
I thought that when I stuck my neck out
I'd get you out of your shell
My faith is sick and my skin is thin as ever
I need you alone
Goodbyes always take us half an hour
Can't we just go home?

Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there
Nobody else will be there then
Nobody else will be there

Yeah...  F*** baritone and the people who like it.

 
That's what I used to say when I played the Alto Sax in Jr. High Band....damn baritones were so loud right behind us, and also behind us were the damn trombones.....part of why I didn't go on to Sr. High Band (and not practicing the sax too.) 

I think I agree though with others, at least on this track I'm going 6→5.  Maybe it sounds good in the flow of the entire album, although again, like some comments say, the album is not inspiring.  Oh well!  Long Live RP!!

Yeah... Think you meant boringtone.
To me the band has lost most of its appeal with this album. Sounds uninspired and boring.
This band is REALLY growing on me. Gotta get me sum National.

The first album from The National that I could really get into.  Not my favorite track of it but still pretty good.

I'm with you. Grinding, just-woke-up-with-a-hangover voice. Grim, repetitive, stone-gray, dull, un-melodic. Other than that, it's great!

The National must have listened to Asgeir...

I think the dreariness is part of the appeal to many of their fans - an aspect many can relate to apparently.  Maybe not...  At this point, this band's output seems more like a formula to me - cool atmosphere though.  Well, it works for them and their fans.

Hilarious.

I thought that only The National was allowed to imitate The National.
Funny, this sounded like someone imitating The National
