The National - Friend Of Mine

If I know you, you're out wandering on the internet wastelands somewhere. This song is for you. Even if you're not reading this, at least it's the spirit of the thing that counts. As for the video, unfortunately I couldn't find a better one, heh.



Hey, where the hell are you
You don't call me back, John

Won't you come here and stay with me

Why don't you come here and stay with me


Hey, where the hell are you

You don't call me back, John

Won't you come here and stay with me

Why don't you come here and stay with me


Show up here loaded with bells on your toes

I don't care what you're into

I'll put velvet ropes around you, if that's what you need

Why did you listen to that man, that man's a balloon
Oh, you gotta get out and get back to me

John, you gotta get out and get back to me


Why did you listen to that man, that man's a balloon
Oh, you gotta get out and get back to me

Take his limousine, you gotta get back to me


I'm getting nervous

na, na, na, na, na, na, na

No sign of a friend of mine

na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Red hair and blue eyes

I'm getting nervous

na, na, na, na, na, na, na

No sign of a friend of mine


I was in a train under a river when I remembered what

What I wanted to tell you, man

What I wanted to tell you, man

I got two sets of headphones, I miss you like hell

Won't you come here and stay with me

Why don't you come here and stay with me


I'm getting nervous

na, na, na, na, na, na, na

No sign of a friend of mine

na, na, na, na, na, na, na

Red hair and blue eyes

I'm getting nervous

na, na, na, na, na, na, na

No sign of a friend of mine

na, na, na, na, na, na, na


Why did you listen to that man, that man's a balloon

Oh, you gotta get out and get back to me

Why did you listen to that man, that man's a balloon

John, you gotta get out and get back to me

Why did you listen to that man, that man's a balloon

Fake a heart attack, you gotta get back to me

Why did you listen to that man, that man's a balloon

John, you gotta get out and get back to me
