Autumn Sweater
Yo La Tengo Lyrics


When I heard the knock on the door
I couldn't catch my breath
Is it too late to call this off

We could slip away, wouldn't that be better
Me with nothing to say, and you in your autumn sweater

I tried my best to hide
In a crowded room, it's nearly possible
I wait for you, oh, most patiently

We could slip away, wouldn't that be better
Me with nothing to say, and you in your autumn sweater

So I looked for your eyes
And the waves looked like they'd pour right out of them
I'll try hard, I'll try always
But it's a waste of time
It's a waste of time if I can't smile easily
Like in the beginning
In the beginning

We could slip away, wouldn't that be better
Me with nothing to say, and you in your autumn sweater

We could slip away, wouldn't that be better
Me with nothing to say, and you in your autumn sweater

You in your autumn sweater
You in your autumn sweater
You in your autumn sweater

When I heard the knock on the door
I couldn't catch my breath
Is it too late to call this off
We could slip away
Wouldn't that be better
Me with nothing to say
And you in your autumn sweater
I tried my best to hide in a crowded room
It's nearly possible
I wait for you, oh, most patiently
We could slip away
Wouldn't that be better
Me with nothing to say
And you in your autumn sweater
So I looked for your eyes
And the waves looked like
They'd pour right out of them
I'll try hard, I'll try always
But it's a waste of time
It's a waste of time if I can't smile easily
Like in the beginning
In the beginning
We could slip away
Wouldn't that be better
Me with nothing to say
And you in your autumn sweater
We could slip away
Wouldn't that be better
Me with nothing to say
And you in your autumn sweater
You in your autumn sweater
You in your autumn sweater
You in your autumn sweater

Drove to my wedding sweating bullets listening to this song. 13 years happily married.

this was the first song my wife and I played to kickstart the dance party after our first dance ("...is it too late to call this off?")
worked surprisingly well.

This album helped me write my undergrad thesis in circa 2004

Mark Crane

"in circa" is redundant; too many prepositions. Simply "circa" will do ...

Aline Almeida

also helped me to write my master's dissertation, I think we discovered a magical element of writing

@Wasim Mustafa Cool! My major was Psychology, but my thesis was focused heavily in Disability Studies. I'm glad I did it... still, the whole process turned me off of any profession that required constant research, getting grants, and so on...
and data analysis. Ugh.
