Dead Sea
The Lumineers Lyrics


I stood alone, upon the platform in vain
Puerto Ricans they were playing me salsa in the rain
With open doors and manual locks
In fast food parking lots

I headed West, I was a man on the move
New York had lied to me, I needed the truth
Oh, I need somebody, I needed someone I could trust
I don't gamble, but if I did I would bet on us

Like the Dead Sea
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
You'll never sink when you are with me
Oh Lord, like the Dead Sea

Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
The finest words you ever said to me
Honey can't you see,
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea

You told me you were good at running away
Domestic life, it never suited you like a suitcase
You left with just the clothes on your back
You took the rest when you took the map

Yes, there are times we live for somebody else
Your father died and you decided to live
It for yourself you felt, you just felt it was time
And I'm glad, 'cause you with cats, that's just not right

Like the Dead Sea
You told me I was like the Dead Sea
You'll never sink when you are with me
Oh Lord, I'm your Dead Sea

Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
The finest words you ever said to me
Honey can't you see
I was born to be, be your Dead Sea

I've been down, I've been defeated
You're the message I was heeding
Would you stay,
Would you stay the night?

Dead Sea,
Told me I was like the Dead Sea
Never sink when you are with me
Oh Lord, I'm your Dead Sea

Whoa, I'm like the Dead Sea
The nicest words you ever said to me
Honey can't you see
I was born to be your Dead Sea

joyce nogueira

Eu estava sozinho em cima da plataforma em vão
Os porto-riquenhos estavam tocando sua salsa na chuva
Com portas abertas e fechaduras manuais
Em estacionamentos de fast food
Eu fui para o oeste eu era um homem em movimento
Nova York mentiu para mim, eu precisava da verdade
Oh, eu preciso de alguém, eu preciso de alguém que possa confiar
E eu não jogo, mas se jogasse, apostaria em nós

Como o mar morto
Você me disse que eu era como o mar morto
Você nunca vai afundar quando estiver comigo
Oh Senhor, como o mar morto
Woah, eu sou como o mar morto
As melhores palavras que você já me disse
Querida, você não vê
Eu nasci para ser, ser o seu mar morto

Você me disse que era boa em fugir
A vida doméstica nunca lhe serviu como uma mala
Você partiu apenas com as roupas em suas costas
Eles levaram o resto quando você tirou uma soneca
Sim, há tempos em que vivemos para alguém
Seu pai morreu
E você decidiu viver por si mesma, você sentiu
Você só sentiu que era hora
E eu estou contente, porque você com os gatos
Isso simplesmente não é correto

Como o mar morto
Você me disse que eu era como o mar morto
Você nunca vai afundar quando estiver comigo
Oh Senhor, como o mar morto
Woah, eu sou como o mar morto
As melhores palavras que você já me disse
Querida, você não vê
Eu nasci para ser, ser o seu mar morto

Eu estive para baixo, eu fui derrotado
Você é a mensagem que vou acatar
Você ficaria comigo
Você ficaria a noite
Oohh

Como o mar morto
Você me disse que eu era como o mar morto
Você nunca vai afundar quando estiver comigo
Oh Senhor, como o mar morto
Woah, eu sou como o mar morto
As melhores palavras que você já me disse
Querida, você não vê
Eu nasci para ser, ser o seu mar morto
