Local Natives - Cards & Quarters Lyrics

Cards and quarters
Means to ends
Surgeon General warns against
Safe in the knowledge
A short walk back
Punch-line I ruin
But we both laugh
Leaves steeping longer
Knowing glance
Make our appearance
Our minds have gone back home
Brave in her movements
Scared to dance alone
There's a cave made of sheets
And I, I know we want to be inside
Take off all of your clothes and climb
Into a cave of sheets tonight
Steal away
You and me
To a cave made of sheets

  6. Tara G

    Wow, I never knew there was an original song?! Last year, I have heard the remix called Card Slinger by Local Natives x Gold Panda x Star Slinger; which I thought was various mixers/djs working together to create a song. I was hooked! Now I know. And I like the vocals and music in both versions! Thank you for posting. :) I will definitely research more on Local Natives.

    Such a classic Local Natives song! Hope they go back to this sort of sound while still being innovative and fresh sounding. I know, not an easy task.

    They have been for me too for a while now. I still listen to this album quite a lot. One of the best albums to come out in a while.

  18. MrBlueSkyMrNight

    This song has some elements of Steve Miller band, Fleetwood Mac and
    Crosby Stills & Nash. Good combination.
