Is This It
The Strokes Lyrics


Can't you see I'm trying?
I don't even like it
I just lied to
Get to your apartment
Now I'm staying
There just for a while
I can't think 'cause
I'm just way too tired

Is this it?
Is this it?
Is this it?

Said they'd give you anything you ever wanted
When they lied, I knew it was just stable children
Trying hard not to realize
I was sitting right behind them

Oh dear, can't you see? It's them it's not me
We're not enemies
We just disagree
If I was like him, all pissed in this bar
He changes his mind, says I went too far
We all disagree
I think we should disagree, yeah

Is this it?
Is this it?
Is this it?

Can't you see I'm trying?
I don't even like it
I just lied to
Get to your apartment
Now I'm staying
There just for a while
I can't think 'cause
I'm just way too tired

비정한세상

0:04 Is This It
[Verse 1]
Can't you see I'm trying? I don't even like it
I just lied to get to your apartment
Now I'm staying there just for a while
I can't think 'cause I'm just way too tired

[Chorus]
Is this it?

[Verse 2]
Said they'd give you anything you ever wanted
When they lied, I knew it was just stable
Children trying hard not to realize
I was sitting right behind you

[Bridge]
Dear, can't you see? It's them, it's not me
We're not enemies, we just disagree
If I was like him, all pissed in this bar
He changes his mind, says I went too far
We all disagree, I think we should disagree, yeah

2:35 The Modern Age
[Verse 1]
Up on a hill, here's where we begin
This little story, a long time ago
Start to pretend, stop pretending
It seems this game is simply never-ending

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, in the sun, sun, having fun, it's in my blood
I just can't help it
Don't want you here right now, let me go
Oh, let me g-g-g-g-g-g-g-go

[Chorus]
Leaving just in time, stay there for a while
Rolling in the ocean, trying to catch her eye
Work hard and say it's easy, do it just to please me
Tomorrow will be different, so I'll pretend I'm leaving

[Verse 2]
I feel so different now, we trained at A-V-A
I wish you hadn't stayed, my vision's clearer now but I'm unafraid
Flying overseas, no time to feel the breeze
I took too many varieties

[Pre-Chorus]
Oh, in the sun, sun, having fun, it's in my blood
I just can't help it
Don't want you here right now, let me go, woo!
Darling, let me g-g-g-g-g-g-g-go

[Chorus]
Leaving just in time, stay there for a while
Rolling in the ocean, trying to catch her eye
Work hard and say it's easy, do it just to please me
Tomorrow will be different, so this is why I'm leaving

6:08 Soma
[Verse 1]
Soma is what they would take when
Hard times opened their eyes
Saw pain in a new way
High stakes for a few names
Racing against sunbeams
Losing against fig trees
In your eyes

[Chorus]
And I am
Stop
And go
In your eyes
See, I am
Stop
And go
In your eyes

[Interlude]
Let's go

[Verse 2]
When I saw her for the first time
Lips moved as her eyes closed
Heard something in his voice
"And I'll be there," he says
Then he walks out
Somehow he was trying
Too hard to be like them

[Chorus]
And I am
Stop
And go
In your eyes
And I am
Stop
Oh, darling let me go

[Outro]
Tried it once and they liked it
And tried to hide it
Says, "I've been doing this twenty-five years"
Well, I'm not listening no more
And these friends, they keep asking for more
Oh, yeah, oh, but that's it

8:46 Barely Legal
12:44 Someday
15:51 Alone, Together
19:04 Last Nite
22:21 Hard to Explain
26:10 When it Started
29:07 Trying Your Luck
32:35 Take it or Leave it



It'S JuSt AnDrEw

@Finn Tallahassee HTF The song makes me feel comforting and calms me down I get angry often and quickly and out of shame when I appeared on YouTube I was ashamed to do and say certain things like it would be to show me The real face or telling someone like you or a Minecraft gamer to subscribe to me is not mandatory but it would mean something about it I was the most ashamed I have others that I did not want to make them out of shame but a few or satisfied and repeat is not mandatory














Thanks for reading

Barely Legal


[Verse 1]
I didn't take no shortcuts
I spent the money that I saved up
Oh, mama running out of luck
But like my sister, don't give a fuck
I wanna steal your innocence
To me, my life, it don't make any sense
These strange manners, I love 'em so
Why won't you wear your new trenchcoat?


[Verse 2]
I should have worked much harder
I should have just not bothered
I never show up on weekdays
And something that you learned yesterday
Drive you to work and you'll be on time
These little problems, they're not yours, they're mine
Come on, listen to what I say
I've got some secrets that'll make you stay


[Pre-Chorus 1]
I just want to turn you down
I just want to turn you around
Oh, you ain't never had nothing I wanted, but
I want it all, I just can't figure out
Nothing


[Chorus]
And all together, it went well
We made pretend, we were best friends
Then she said, "Oh, you're a freak"
They ordered me to make mistakes
Together again, like the beginning
It all works somehow in the end
The things we did, the things you hide
But for the record, it's between you and I


[Verse 3]
Oh, I didn't take no shortcuts
I spent the money that I saved up
Oh, mama running out of luck
And like my sister, don't give a fuck
I wanna steal your innocence
To me, my life, it just don't make any sense
Oh, strange manners, I love 'em so
Why won't you wear your new trenchcoat?


[Pre-Chorus 2]
I just want to misbehave
I just want to be your slave
Oh, you ain't never had nothing I wanted, but
I want it all, I just can't figure out
Nothing


[Chorus]
And all together, it went well
We made pretend, we were best friends
Then she said, "Oh, I can wait"
They ordered me to make mistakes
Together again, like the beginning
It all works somehow in the end
The things we did, the things you hide
But for the record, it's between you and I

Someday

[Verse 1]
In many ways, they'll miss the good old days
Someday, someday
Yeah, it hurts to say, but I want you to stay
Sometimes, sometimes
When we was young, oh man, did we have fun
Always, always
Promises, they break before they're made
Sometimes, sometimes


[Chorus]
Oh, Maya says I'm lacking in depth
I will do my best
You say you wanna stand by my side
Darling, your head's not right
Ah, see, alone we stand, together we fall apart
Yeah, I think I'll be alright
I'm working so I won't have to try so hard
Tables, they turn sometimes
Oh, someday
No, I ain't wasting no more time

[Interlude]
(Trying, trying)


[Verse 2]
And now my fears, they come to me in threes
So I sometimes
Say, "Fate, my friend, you say the strangest things
I find sometimes"


[Chorus]
Oh, Maya says I'm lacking in depth
Shit, I will try my best
You say you wanna stand by my side
Darling, your head's not right
Ah, see, alone we stand, together we fall apart
Yeah, I think I'll be alright
I'm working so I won't have to try so hard
Tables, they turn sometimes
Oh, someday
I ain't wasting no more time

Alone, Together

[Verse 1]

No choice now, it's too late
Let him go, he gave up
I gave up
Lisa said, "Take time for me"
Dropping him down to his knees
Ah, chest down


[Chorus]
Take me away, see, I've got to explain
Things, they have changed in such a permanent way
Life seems unreal, can we go back to your place?
Oh, "you drink too much" makes me drink just the same


[Verse 2]

People tried, felt so right
Giving themselves good advice
Looking down sometimes felt nice
He knows it's justified to kill to survive
He then, in dollars, makes more dead than alive
Let's suck more blood, let's run three hours a day
The world is over but I don't care


[Chorus]
'Cause I am with you, now I've got to explain
Things, they have changed in such a permanent way
Life seems unreal, can we go back to your place?
Oh, "You drink too much" makes me drink just the same


[Bridge]
The first time, it happened too fast
The second time, I thought it would last
We all like it a little different
