National, The - I Should Live In Salt Lyrics




Don't make me read your mind
You should know me better than that
It takes me too much time
You should know me better than that
You're not that much like me
You should know me better than that
We have different enemies
You should know me better than that

I should leave it alone but you're not right
I should leave it alone but you're not right

Can't you write it on the wall?
You should know me better than that
There's no room to write it all
You should know me better than that
Can you turn the TV down?
You should know me better than that
There's too much crying in the sound
I should know you better than that

I should leave it alone but you're not right
I should leave it alone but you're not right
I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind

Think about something so much
You should know me better than that
Start to slide out of touch
You should know me better than that
Tell yourself it's all you know
You should know me better than that
Learn to appreciate the void
You should know me better than that

I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind
I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind
I should live in salt for leaving you behind
Behind

  8. James Fleming

    Love how this song throws a measure of 5 every so often. So cool.

    mason tom

    what is a measure of.5?

    Kurbisa

    @mason tom They use a rhythmic combination of 5/4 and 4/4 in the composition. It's difficult to properly explain it, but one can actually count it with some effort.

  9. Chris Drummond

    I love salt, and that's why I'm on 2 blood pressure medicines. I don't smoke or drink caffeine, and I'm still not in the best of health.

    Don't make me read your mind
    You should know me better than that
    It takes me too much time
    You should know me better than that
    You're not that much like me
    You should know me better than that
    We have different enemies
    You should know me better than that
    I should leave it alone but you're not right
    I should leave it alone but you're not right
    Can't you write it on the wall?
    You should know me better than that
    There's no room to write it all
    You should know me better than that
    Can you turn the TV down?
    You should know me better than that
    There's too much crying in the sound
    I should know you better than that
    I should leave it alone but you're not right
    I should leave it alone but you're not right
    I should live in salt for leaving you behind
    Behind

  22. ronald reagan

    listened to this basically on repeat last year, while in the middle of me and my gf fighting. we eventually broke up, really badly, and this song still reminds me alot of our last times together before everything fell apart. still love her

    John Williams

    It's like I had written these words buddy. I was in a similar situation and 6 months on, I'm having to pick through the debris of what was left of our life together.
    And it's miserable.

    squashmylemon

    AuralAudacity ASMR

    o jesus so fucking depressing.

  23. Natalie Waters

    I'm in total love with this song!!!!

  24. With you

    Never heard of this band but they were lumped in with one of my faves in an article so I looked up some of their tunes and lyrics... This one hit me like an arrow to the chest

    Holliday

    +1ManNamedDan What is the name of one of your favs? I'm looking for music close to this style if you have any good suggestions.

    With you

    The Shins "Caring Is Creepy"  would be closest as well as Boy and Bear *Harlequin Dream" might be a couple songs to match the National's mood, the article I was reading was "Bands from the 90's - 2000's still going strong today"... one of them was Queens of the Stone Age, which are one of my faves but they're much more "sex drugs rock&roll" than The National but I still appreciate a well crafted song and also enjoy stepping out of my my comfort zone to find new. Let me know if any of these strike home with you and I might find you something else to dig.

  25. Shameus Blackley
