Vampire Weekend - Everlasting Arms Lyrics




I took your counsel and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself
I took your counsel and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself

Oh I was made to live without you
But I’m never gonna understand, never understand
Oh I was born to live without you
But I’m never gonna understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear, trapped beneath a chandelier that’s going down

I thought it over and drew the curtain
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself
I hummed the "Dies Irae" as you played the Hallelujah
Leave me to myself, don't leave me in myself

If you’ve been made serve the master
You’d be frightened by the open hand, frightened by the hand
Could I’ve made serve the master?
Well, I’m never gonna understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear, trapped beneath a chandelier that’s going down
Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up, full of fear, trapped beneath a chandelier that’s going down

Hold me in your everlasting arms

  1. Shreyas Bhave

    Just discovered vampire weekend -- on repeat for dayysss! This song is criminally underrated.

  2. Wilo Polis

    This one really grows on you. Seems forgettable at first but I grew to appreciate it more over time.

  3. Davy Roger

    Underrated asf

  4. spᄋᄋky ᅵᅵamma

    Try listening to this in reverse

  5. Ben Moore

    I think he is talking about being a ghost buster, going after slimer in the chandelier

  6. Eliza T

    Ok have any of you ever played paper Mario on N64?! That intro music sounds exactly like it 😂😂

  7. Usva Eden

    My favorite from Vampire Weekend <3

  8. McNabb, Lily

    Good songa

  9. doyouhaveleprosy

    i think this song koenig is mocking his doubts and failures to follow God perfectly but resigns to hqve faith regardless

  10. Dominique Payne

    I took your counsel and came to ruin,
    Leave me to myself, leave me to myself
    I took your counsel and came to ruin,
    Leave me to myself, oh lead me to my cell
    Oh I was made to live without you,
    But I'm never gonna understand, never understand
    Oh I was born to live without you,
    But I'm never gonna understand, never understand

    Hold me in your everlasting arms
    Look up full of fear, trapped beneath the chandelier
    That's going down

    I thought it over and drew the curtain,
    Lead me to my cell, lead me to my cell
    I hummed the Dies Irae as you played the Hallelujah
    Lead me to my cell, oh lead me to my cell

    If you'd been made to serve a master
    You'd be frightened by the open hand, frightened by the hand
    Could I have been made to serve a master
    Well I'm never gonna understand, never understand

    Hold me in your everlasting arms
    Look up full of fear, trapped beneath the chandelier
    That's going down
    Hold me in your everlasting arms
    Look up full of fear, trapṗed beneath the chandelier
    That's going down

    Hold me in your everlasting arms

    22-07-2018// i’ve decided im kicking out this mouse

  12. Lorelai M

    I just found this song today and see you've uploaded it on the same day three years ago. Can't believe it has been that long already.

  13. hippiecheezburger

    Song is very much how god is love

    FourEyePersonal

    How foolish.

    hippiecheezburger

    Well faith never turns its back, it’s always shining, the glory the good news

    Joshua Pierce

    I took the bibles counsel and came to ruin

    SmytheSmythe

    It’s about a man dettaching himself from religion. Not intentionally but a separation that is very much unstoppable. This is him coming to terms with how God is changing meaning right before his face

  14. Marina Bare

    Anyone here from Girls?no?fine.

  15. edward casas

    what does the background voice say in min. 2:15 and 2:18? or is it just a sound effect?

    Ry Garant

    Its a voice effecting thats saying "hold me in your everlasting arms" its just deepened and has some more tweks on it

  16. jersey Mcgee

    was gonna say i hear Paul simons you can call me al...

  17. Katherine P

    I loooove this song!!!

  18. Fatt Managan

    A bit of Simon and Garfunkel sprinkled throughout this track.

    Wolfe

    Fatt Managan which song does it remind you of

  19. David Mix

    Paul Simon said yes you can borrow some of my flavor

    Adam Burris

    to which ladysmith black mambazo "yeah it's cool"

    Burt Gaming

    David Mix This is a lot like a Darker and more depressing Paul Simon Type sound tho

    NB 1294

    It's like Paul Simon for millennials.

    Burt Gaming

    @NB 1294 Not every millennial is bad ya know. Yes most of them are bad but not all of them. Its not their fault they were born at that time.

  20. Supreme Duckboy

    This song is fuego

    pescaditoaguirre
