Lemonworld
The National Lyrics


So happy I was invited
Gave me a reason to get out of the city
See you inside watching swarms on TV
Livin' and dyin' in New York, it means nothing to me
I gave my heart to the Army
The only sentimental thing I could think of
With cousins, and colors and somewhere overseas
But it'll take a better war to kill a college man like me

I'm too tired to drive anywhere, anyway right now
Do you care if I stay?
You can put on your bathing suits
And I'll try to find somethin' on this thing that means nothin' enough
Losin' my breath, do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
Losin' my breath, do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

This pricey stuff makes me dizzy
I guess I've always been a delicate man
Takes me a day to remember a day
I didn't mean to let it get so far out of hand
I was a comfortable kid
But I don't think about it much anymore
Lay me on the table, put flowers in my mouth
And we can say that we invented a summer lovin' torture party

I'm too tired to drive anywhere, anyway right now
Do you care if I stay?
You can put on your bathing suits
And I'll try to find something on this thing that means nothin' enough

You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do-do

Losin' my breath
Do-do-do-do-do-do-do

So happy I was invited
Give me a reason to get out of the city
See you inside watching swarms on TV
Livin' or dyin' in New York it means nothing to me
I gave my heart to the Army
The only sentimental thing I could think of
With cousins and colors and somewhere overseas
But it'll take a better war to kill a college man like me
I'm too tired to drive anyway, anyway right now
Do you care if I stayed?
You can put on your bathing suits
And I'll try to find somethin' on this thing that means nothin' enough
Losin' my breath, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Losin' my breath, doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld

Never had a band connect so emotionally with me. Has to be the most finely crafted music out there.

Brittany Hottmann

So happy I was invited.

This pricy stuff makes me dizzy. 😊

It'll take a better war to kill a college man like me.

I've been listening to this song on repeat for days. I just rediscovered the National after not listening to them for a few years and I had forgotten how rich and comforting this album is. Like rolling yourself up in a soft heavy nihilism blanket

You’re doing the Lawd’s work.

Rawov Un Lapin

Thanks, this thing makes a whole lot more sense when the entire thing is in front of you

Dan Golz

The drummer is genius. The whole band is, really....

Roger Topham

@Adam Devlin interesting observation...i'm also a huge fan of SY and Sister/Daydream Nation especially. Would note though that that particular rhythm is a version of "Motorik," said to have been popularized (I use that term loosely) by bands such as Can and Kraftwerk. SY uses it a bunch. The Cure also uses it , especially in their older stuff (e.g., A Forest). But yeah, I like basically anything with that drumbeat and some fat guitar chords with some space in them.
