Chairlift - Polymorphing Lyrics




There's something better than what you're asking for
Kid, kid, tonight
Something better than what you're asking for
Kid, kid, tonight
Something better than what you're asking for
Kid, kid, tonight
Something better than what you're asking for
Kid, kid, kid, kid

I could not be more forgiving
Dr. Lucy, fancy living
Stick your shift in, polymorphing
Sound my guns when we're together
Shake a rain stick, guide the weather
Take the day off, I surrender

Oh darling
If this heart was a garden would you till it?
If this life was a pulse would you feel it?
If this love was a wound would you heal it?

There's something better than what you're asking for
Kid, kid, tonight
Something better than what you're asking for
Kid, kid, tonight
Something better than what you're asking for
Kid, kid, tonight
Something better than what you're asking for
Kid, kid, kid, kid

Fill her up with serotonin
Pyrotechnic, oxytocin
Overdosing, polymorphing
In the sense within the warzone
Undercover in the ozone
Bungee jumping on the upswing

Oh darling
If this heart was a garden would you till it?
If this life was a pulse would you feel it?
If this love was a wound would you heal it?

There's something better than what you're
Something better than what you're
Better than, better than, night
Kid, kid, kid, kid
There's something better than what you're
Something better than what you're
Better than, better than, night
Kid, kid, kid, kid

Heart, heart
Polymorphing

Oh darling
If this heart was a garden would you till it?
If this life was a pulse would you feel it?
If this love was a wound would you heal it?
Oh just make it better or something

There's something better than what you're
I do better than what you're
I do better than what you're
There's something better than what you're
I do better than what you're
Night
There's something better than what you're
I do better than what you're
Night
Kid, kid, kid, kid

I'm polymorphing
(Everybody just calm the fuck down)
I'm polymorphing
Polymorphing
Tonight
Tonight
Tonight

Chairlift Polymorphing Comments
  1. Wayne O'Brien

    EVERYBODY CALM THE F#CK DOWN

  2. THE SEX DOLL CHANNEL

    0:25 cute armpit hair though. So she does shrooms and has the pit hair. confirmed hippy girl! 😍

  3. Jordan Hawkes

    Critically underrated

  4. Monsieur Monsieur

    I listened to this song when it first came out and I fell in love for the first time at 23 and strongly associate it with that feeling. It was intense and magical. That relationship has since came and went and now I'm falling in love with someone new, someone better than what I was asking for. Its funny that its a song about parting ways. Cheers kid. It wasn't forever, but it was magic.

  5. ican't Feel

    i want to be hugged like how caroline hugs those breads

  6. PlanInch

    Big quality difference between Sidewalk Safari and this, you lost yourself in shitty rnb vibes.

    Thank you, Caroline and Patrick, for making such beautiful music all these years. Your music has deeply resonated with me. It brought me some of my closest friends. It got me through some of my darkest times. It breaks my heart to know this is the last video from Chairlift. I love you guys and your music and I'm sad to see Chairlift part.

  78. Sophie Lambros

    thank you for your creativity and uplifting rhythms and tunes. you're both so interesting as musicians and artists. your videos are pure art, this one included. I love how unique chairlift has been. ❤

  79. dasneonlicht

    I discovered you guys through your video for "Amanaemonesia" at a dance party back in 2012. The video was so strange, I had to look you up the next day. Soon after, I fell in love with Something -- a brilliant album. One more lighthearted video was a nice way for you to say good-bye. I can't wait to see your your final show in New York next Saturday.

    You both are talented, gifted musicians, with a beautiful sense of humor, and you've been heroes to me. Farewell, and thank you for everything.

  80. Kat Wharton

    I discovered you guys by accident years ago and fell in love. I can't believe we have to say goodbye so soon. Thank you for such beautiful music over the years and I hope you continue to do amazing things with your talents, even after this Chairlift chapter has closed.

    honelybaby patterson

    check caroline polachek if u didnt!!

  81. ViIZIOnVoRtExZ

    Her eyebrows are sooooo bushy

  82. KC Nham

    4:42, almost looks like she's stroking a very long, stiff penis. Or could be just my floury, bready hallucination.

  83. Starry&Bohemian

    Could Be for Chic Prince Sade n Blood Orange fanatix...
    I like more their previous more "electronized" (or "eelectrosized") orientation... but this is good anyway

  84. Nicola Ayuntika

    this is just too emotional for me. And no, Patrick, I can't calm the fuck down :(

    Thank you very much, chairlift.

  85. Kaique Jorge

    caralho, e a banda acabou. não acredito =[

  86. Elias Rosales

    CHAIRLIFT forever!

  87. Dexter Meneses

    This is amazing. Looking forward for more.

  88. Arshey Amurao

    No, I'm not crying, you are!

  89. Leon Avalos

    I was so happy singing along, then started crying ffs! Thank you for everything you have given us guys, and everything you've shared with us. This was the perfect farewell song! I've always loved Polymorphing, but now I love it even more. It's so good to see that both of you are turning into something -even- better. Can't wait to see what projects you two are working on! Thank you again.
