Terrible Love
The National Lyrics


It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in
It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in
This quiet company
This quiet company

It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in
It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in
This quiet company
This quiet company
This quiet company

And I can't fall asleep
Without a little help
It takes a while to settle down
My shivered bones
Until the panic's out

It takes an ocean not to break
It takes an ocean not to break
It takes an ocean not to break
It takes an ocean not to break
Company
This quiet company
This quiet company

But I won't follow you
Into the rabbit hole
I said I would but then I saw
Your shivered bones
They didn't want me to

It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in
It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in
It takes an ocean not to break
It takes an ocean not to break
It takes an ocean not to break

This is!
[Verse 1
It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in
It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in

[Pre-Chorus]
It's quiet company
It's quiet company

[Verse 1]
It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in
It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in

[Pre-Chorus]
It's quiet company
It's quiet company
It's quiet company

[Chorus 1]
And I can't fall asleep
Without a little help
It takes a while to settle down my shivered bones
Until the panic's out

[Bridge]
It takes an ocean not to break
It takes an ocean not to break
It takes an ocean not to break
It takes an ocean not to break

[Pre-Chorus]
Company
It's quiet company
It's quiet company
It's quiet company

[Chorus 2]
But I won't follow you
Into the rabbit hole
I said I would, but then I saw your shivered bones
They didn't want me to

[Verse 1]
It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in
It's a terrible love and I'm walking with spiders
It's a terrible love and I'm walking in

[Bridge]
It takes an ocean not to break
It takes an ocean not to break
It takes an ocean not to break



Ravena Leal

É um amor terrível e eu estou caminhando com aranhas

É um amor terrível e eu estou caminhando

É um amor terrível e eu estou caminhando com aranhas

É um amor terrível e eu estou caminhando

Em sua companhia tranquila, sua companhia tranquila


E eu não consigo adormecer sem um pouco de ajuda

Leva um tempo para acalmar

Meus ossos trêmulos

Até que o pânico se estabeleça


É preciso um oceano para não quebrar


Companhia

Sua companhia tranquila

Sua companhia tranquila


E eu não vou te seguir até o buraco do coelho

Eu disse que iria

Mas então vi

Seu ossos trêmulos

Eles não me queriam


É um amor terrível e eu estou caminhando com aranhas

É um amor terrível e eu estou caminhando

É um amor terrível e eu estou caminhando com aranhas

É um amor terrível e eu estou caminhando


É preciso um oceano para não quebrar



Ravena Leal

É um amor terrível e eu estou andando com aranhas
É um amor terrível e estou indo
É um amor terrível e eu estou andando com aranhas
É um amor terrível e estou indo
É um compania tranquila,É um compania tranquila
E eu não consigo dormir sem uma ajudinha
Demora um tempo prara alcamar
Meus estremecidos ossos
Ate o pânico se estabelecer
Leva um oceano para não quebrar
Compania
É um compania tranquila
É um compania tranquila
Mas eu não
Vou te seguir para a toca do coelho
Eu disse que iria
Mas então eu vi
Que seus estremecidos ossos
Eles não me queriam tambem
É um amor terrível e eu estou andando com aranhas
É um amor terrível e estou indo
É um amor terrível e eu estou andando com aranhas
É um amor terrível e estou indo
Leva um oceano para não quebrar

Just discovered this song. How in the heck I avoided this song and band for this long is beyond me. Too much damn white noise hiding good indie music.

Here bc of TVD.

Fortunately, it doesn't matter now how long it took, you're here. Enjoy!

They’re on the Band Of Horses episode of Best Of ACL... that’s kinda the best mf white noise all bands would kill for, especially back around 2010.

@michael knight very nice indeed

Alessandro Caiazzo

david olusola

Whoever selected songs as themes for VD and originals is just heavenly

“It takes an ocean not to break!! It takes an ocean not to break!! It takes an ocean not to break!!” I really felt that, the way he put his soul into shouting those lyrics hit me deep.

Poritime

That line hits me too man <3

Today it's one year since my grandmother passed away. I remember that I was listening to this song while I had the news. Since that day I always think of her when I listen to it and I start to cry. This also inspired me a song for her, called "The quiet company". I hope that one day I'll can sing it in her memory with my band <3
