Death Cab For Cutie - Title and registration Lyrics




The glove compartment is inaccurately named
And everybody knows it.
So i'm proposing a swift orderly change.

Cause behind its door there's nothing to keep my fingers warm
And all i find are souvenirs from better times
Before the gleam of your taillights fading east
To find yourself a better life.

I was searching for some legal document
As the rain beat down on the hood
When i stumbled upon pictures i tried to forget
And that's how this idea was drilled into my head

Cause it's too important
To stay the way it's been

There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade
And now that it's gone it's like it wasn't there at all
And here i rest where disappointment and regret collide
Lying awake at night

There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade
And now that it's gone it's like it wasn't there at all
And here i rest where disappointment and regret collide
Lying awake at night (up all night)
When i'm lying awake at night.

  14. Caring Is Creepy

    I thought that Ben Gibbard was ALWAYS the lead singer!!  

    Who was this English bloke?

    Surfer Blood

    lol  I don't know if you're kidding or not    solid

  17. Erin Frost

    I was searching for some legal document
    As the rain beat down on the hood
    When i stumbled upon pictures i tried to forget
    And that's how this idea was drilled into my head

    Cause it's too important
    To stay the way it's been

    There's no blame for how our love did slowly fade
    And now that it's gone it's like it wasn't there at all
    And here i rest where disappointment and regret collide
    Lying awake at night .

  18. dafootballfreak

    I can’t believe this album is already 15 years old!!

  19. Flor Serna

    Why does it sound like there is a tape error of some sort here?

  20. JewToTheRescue

    This is one of their best songs but omg the 360p and video encoder do it no justice. This sounds awful. We need a new version uploaded, this is tragic.

  21. Loba E. Von Wahnsinn

    The glove compartment is inaccurately named
    And everybody knows it
    So I'm proposing a swift orderly change

    'Cause behind its door, there's nothing to keep my fingers warm
    And all I find are souvenirs from better times
    Before the gleam of your taillights fading east
    To find yourself a better life

    And here I rest where disappointment and regret collide
    Lying awake at night, up all night
    When I'm lying awake at night

  22. Georgia Emery

    death cab never fails to put out that poignant shit. you could be in the best mood ever but after an album or two youre contemplating the best way to tie a knot.

    bravo

  31. Sam Chambers

    I came from 2003, where The O.C. and some girl's MySpace page looping this song had me chance upon what would become my favorite band. This was also the soundtrack to my adventures in FFXI and my first love.

  53. ryan a.g.

    i really want Tom DeLonge to cover this song

    Cooked Meat

    Drunk? Or sober? Jk if he sang it sober in the studio he could pull it off. Especially with how he pronounces his words in his music it would be decent.

    David Cook

    One strange one It requires more effort, perhaps?

  93. countrymadness

    Owl city, young the giant, gotye, death cab. Gawd my taste in music is weird.

    R0b0tR0ck

    No it's not, in fact it's very plain, average, and basic

    Margaret Adelle

    Yeah, those sound like they'd come from the same Pandora station.

    Ebani

    @R0b0tR0ck Basics work on all lvls, tho in my case it's mostly nostalgia...

    Warm Numel

    @R0b0tR0ck Except Death Cab is better than those other artists.

  94. Angelica Pineiro

    that looks like it hurts...

  95. Mogamango

    Some guys have all the luck. I was born with glass bones and paper skin.. Every morning I broke my legs.. And every afternoon I break my arms.. At night, I lie awake in agony until my heart attacks put me to sleep.
