DeVotchKa Lyrics


Lady future's arms are lily white
They stretch before you come inside
There's room enough, she's generous
Come on, come up, while we're still young

You want to love your life from a prison?
Of all this uninvited altruism
The homemade weapons you're fashioning
Are hellbent on doing us both in

You never mean what you say
Why don't you say what you mean?
I never get anywhere
I get the space in between
Beautifully mutilated
Instantly antiquated
I will admit I almost always underestimate it

You better mean what you say
Why don't you say what you mean?
I never get anywhere
I get the space in between
Beautifully mutilated
Instantly antiquated
I will admit I almost always underestimate it

Let's begin at the beginning
Let us revisit the past
Like when the houselights are dimming
Like silver screen photograph

It makes a beautiful sound
When nobody else is around
It has a wonderful way
Of eating up entire days

We'll go swimming in libations
Forgive unexplained lacerations
The otherworldly manifestations
I could live in the breath you're wasting

You never mean what you say
Why don't you say what you mean?
I never get anywhere
I get the space in between
Beautifully mutilated
Instantly antiquated
I will admit I almost always underestimate it

You never mean what you say
Why don't you say what you mean?
I never get anywhere
I get the space in between
Beautifully mutilated
Instantly antiquated
I will admit I almost always underestimate it

You better mean what you say
Why don't you say what you mean?
I never get anywhere
I get the space in between here
We go over again beautifully mutilated
Instantly antiquated let's wash our hands
Of everything
I will admit I almost always underestimate it

You don't owe them anything
No, you don't owe them anything
No, you don't owe them anything

You never mean what you say
Why don't you say what you mean?
I never get anywhere
I get the space in between
Beautifully mutilated
Instantly antiquated
I will admit I almost always underestimate it

You never mean what you say
Why don't you say what you mean?
I never get anywhere
I get the space in between
Beautifully mutilated
Instantly antiquated
I will admit I almost always underestimate it
