Death Cab For Cutie - Your New Twin Sized Bed Lyrics




You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed.
With a single pillow underneath your single head.
I guess you decided that that old queen was more space than you would need.
Now it's in the alley behind your apartment with a sign that says it's free.

And I hope you have more luck with this than me.

You used to think that someone would come along.
And lay beside you in a space that they belong.
But the other side of the mattress and box springs stayed like new.
What's the point of holding onto what never gets used?

Other than a sick desire for self-abuse.

And I try not to worry, but you've got me terrified.
It's like you're in some kind of hurry to say goodbye,

You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed.
You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed.

  1. lesley.l

  2. Jacq

    This song takes me back to summer, it got me through a breakup.

  3. matt klasen

    “It’s like we’re in some kind of hurry to say good bye.” No matter where I am in life and throughout so many different stages, I always come back to DCFC. Needless to say I’ve been listening to them again 😌 it’s been so healing.

  4. Salty Scholar

    This song should have WAY more views!!

  5. Kenneth Law

    seasons come and go and ´Up' can't Rhinemann exchange...;)

  6. Hyrum Wood

    this song reminds me of the army. I bought this CD from the PX circa 2009 during AIT(advanced individual training) at Fort Rucker in Alabama.

  7. Madison Taylor

    I'm here because of The Regrettes <3

  8. Steph V

    Always loved this song...calling my name now that I just downsized to a twin myself😜😁😥

  9. Alan Peters

    Definitely one of my favs on the album

  10. SteventheThorn

    one of their very best songs

  11. Jessica Maia

    One of Death Cab's most underrated songs and one of my favorites

  12. Phantasma

    I had this girl who i thought was something. I bought a queen sized bed for when she arrived. She broke up with me and 2 years later and always look at the spawning of a bed so absent.

  13. Eric Lupercio

    why would you sleep on only one side of a mattress?

    Anietyt Retra

    when you are so used to someone, someone specific sleeping on that side, it's their side. When they are gone it is still their side, the space you experienced with them everynight.

    Endirrin

    @Anietyt Retra Sounds like you speak from experience. You okay?

    Anietyt Retra

    @Endirrin hey, yeah I'm good! Though I've experienced this to a small degree with w a partner a while ago

    Endirrin

    Sometimes I'm lonely. Other times I'm okay being single. I've never been in a relationship.

    Anietyt Retra

    @Endirrin you'll experience it one day! Only good though when it's the right person, otherwise it's best to be alone

  14. Harry indeed

    My favorite of the album. Just so beautiful.

    You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed
    With a single pillow underneath your single head
    I guess you decided that that old queen was more space than you would need
    Now it's in the alley behind your apartment with a sign that says it's free
    And I hope you have more luck with this than me
    You used to think that someone would come along
    And lay beside you in a space that they belong
    But the other side of the mattress and box springs stayed like new
    What's the point of holding onto what never gets used?
    Other than a sick desire for self-abuse
    And I try not to worry, but you've got me terrified
    It's like your some kind of hurry to say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye
    You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed
    You look so defeated lying there in your new twin size bed

  17. jacob Franklin

    God I know his pain much to well... Its not easy to deal with... I do hope she has more luck then me

  18. Peter Kariotakis

    It's amazing how much heartbreak this song brings up when I listen to it. It's an amazing song, it just hurts. DCFC knows me all too well.

    Stephanie Walker

    This album is a masterpiece but I think that plans is even more so. What Sarah said makes me cry every time
