Julian Casablancas - Left & Right In The Dark Lyrics




Running in the parking lot, I'm four years old
I am lost, those were the days
The soft murmur of voices in the other room
Comforting you, as you fall asleep

Staring at the mother-daughter clones go by
We're in a race against time
And time might be winning

And it's not gonna take all day long
Watching the urban decay all around us, oh boy
And I'm on my way on somewhere
Feels like I'm going left and right in the dark
How long must we wait, how long must this take?

Wake up

I'm ashamed I think maybe sometimes
I might have used tricks to make you like me more
When I found you I was running wld
Let's get outta here, and let's travel there

I wanna know what are you baby
'Cause I think, I think you don't know

Sliding across the Indian wildnerness
Like the wind gliding down soft roads.
6am and you're in Hollywood
And you're dancing, we made it

We are turning back the Earth so fast
That it feels a lot slower

And it's not gonna take all day long
Watching the urban decay all around us, oh boy
And I'm on my way on somewhere
Feels like I'm going left and right in the dark
How long will it take
To fix what they break

Wake up

Your Achilles heel is you like to feel
Your fingers on the wheel
Some live in a palace some live in the sewer.
The director, the actor,the crew and the viewer.
Boys get their toys and girls get their dolls and
Nothing much gets easier in the final stages

How you're spending the day is the same as your life.
And you're watching the time run away.

Wait up
Wake up

    Beautiful word, "ethereal".

  10. ryouga Ac

    Best song Julián

  11. Norman Garcia

    I wish he would have released this song on the charts or made a video. Could have been bigger than taken for a fool or under cover of darkness (at the time)

  13. Alicia Hart

    Your Achilles heel is that you like to feel your fingers on the wheel

  14. Satsuki

    Running in the parking lot I'm four years old
    I am lost, those were the days
    The soft murmur of voices in the other room
    Comforting you as you fall asleep
    Staring at the mother-daughter clones go by
    We're in a race against time
    And time might be winning
    And it's not going to take all day though
    Watching the urban decay
    All around us, oh boy
    And I'm on my way, oh, somewhere
    Feels like I'm going left and right in the dark
    How long must she wait, how long must you stay
    Oh wake up
    Wake up
    Oh wake up
    Wake up
    Oh wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up
    I am ashamed I think maybe sometimes
    I might have used tricks to make you like me more
    When I found you I was running wild
    Let's get outta here
    What's the trouble there
    I wanna know
    What were they thinking
    'Cause I think
    I think it too
    Sliding across the Indian wilderness
    Like the wind riding down sore throats
    Six a.m now you're in Hollywood
    And you're dancing, we made it
    We are turning with the earth so fast
    That it feels a lot slower
    And it's not going to take all day though
    Watching the urban decay
    All around us, oh boy
    And I'm on my way, oh, somewhere
    Feels like I'm going left and right in the dark
    How long will it take to fix what can't break
    Oh wake up
    Wake up
    Oh wake up
    Wake up
    Oh wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up
    Your Achilles heel is you like to feel your fingers on the wheel
    Some live in the bottle, some live in the zoo
    With the director and the actor and the crew and the viewers
    Boys get their toys and girls got their dolls and
    Nothing much gets easier in the final stages
    Are you spending today as the same
    As your life in corruption and temper in the way
    Oh wake up
    Wake up
    Oh wake up
    Wake up
    Oh wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up
    Wake up

    Some corrections:

    "Some live in the palace, some live in the sewer

    Nothing much else changes in the final stages
    How you're spending the day is the same as your life
    And you're watching the time running away"

    I think it's more existential about time since the whole song is about memories. Wake up and live your life sort of thing that gnaws at youth.
