Girl Sailor
The Shins Lyrics


The gutter may profess its love
Then follow it with hesitation
For there are just so many of
You out there for rent

A stronger girl would shake this off in flight
And never give it more than a frowning hour
But you have let your heart decide
Loss has conquered you
You've won one too many fights
Wearing many hats every time
But you won't win here tonight

You made it through the direst of straits alright
Can you help it if plain love now seems less interesting?
You haven't changed an ounce in my eyes
And I cannot lecture you

And does anything I say seem relevant at all?
You've been at the helm since you were just five
While I cannot claim to be more than a passenger

But, you've won one too many fights
Wearing all of your clothes at the same time
Let the good times in tonight
Oh girl sailor don't sink her
This time

Just a moment or two from now
Not a mind will retain even a trace
Of the thoughts that I struggle to tell
And how our stack of cards just fell

So settle this once and for all
The light no longer shows the cracks around my door
And I have no lantern to light your way home tonight

You are not some saint who's above
Giving someone a stroll through the flowers
You've got so much more to dream of
Oh girl sailor, don't sink her
This time
This time
This time

La canaleta puede profesar su amor 
A continuación, siga con vacilación 
Porque hay tan muchos de 
Usted por ahí en alquiler 

Una chica fuerte sacudía esto adelante en 
el vuelo y nunca le dan más de una hora con el ceño fruncido 
Pero de haber dejado su corazón decida Pérdida 
ha conquistado 

usted ha ganado una demasiadas peleas 
de varios papeles cada vez 
Pero no va a ganar esta noche 

usted lo ha hecho a través de la más extrema de los estrechos bien 
¿se puede hacer nada si llano amor ahora parece menos interesante? 
no ha cambiado la onza en los ojos 
Y no puedo dar una conferencia 

y hace todo lo que digo parece relevante en absoluto? 
usted ha estado a la cabeza desde que eras sólo cinco 
Aunque no puedo pretender ser más que un /> 
sin embargo, los pasajeros que has ganado una demasiadas peleas 
el uso de todos de su ropa al mismo tiempo 
Deja que los buenos tiempos del final de esta noche
 Oh, chica, vela ella, no se hunden ella esta vez 

Sólo un par de segundos a partir de ahora < br /> No es una mente conservará incluso un /> 
y cómo nuestra pila de tarjetas acaba de caer 

Así que resolver esto de una vez por todas 
La luz ya no muestra las grietas alrededor de la puerta de mi 
Y no tengo la linterna para iluminar su camino a casa esta noche 

Usted no es un santo que está por encima de 
Darle a alguien un paseo a través de las flores 
tienes mucho más que soñar 
Ay niña, navegar ella, no le daba un vuelco este momento

*El canal podria profesar su amor,
y duespues gesitar,
Pero ahi demasiados como tu
En renta

Una chica mas fuerte sacudiria esto rapidamente,
Y nunca le daria mas de una hora (de pensamiento),
Pero tu haz dejado a tu corazon decidir,
La perdida te a conquistado,

Haz ganado demasiadas peleas,
Usando muchos sombreros al mismo tiempo,
Pero no ganaras aqui esta noche,

Ahz sobrevivido los mas peligorosos estreches,
Puedes hacer algo si el amor simple ahora parece menos interesante?
No as cambiado una pisca en mis ojos,
I no te puedo darte una enseñanza.

Y me preunto si cualquier cosa que aga parece relevante?
Tu haz estado en el timon desde que tenias 5 años,
Mientras que you no puedo aclamar ser mas que un pasajero

Pero tu haz ganado demasiadas peleas,
Usando toda tu ropa al mismo tiempo,
Dejemos los buenos tiempos terminar hoy,
Oh chica, vela el barco, no lo undas,
esta vez,

En solo un momento o dos
Nisiquiera una mente recordara nisiquiera un rastro
De los pensamientos que luche para contar,
Y como nuestro mazo de cartas se cayo

Entonces decidamos esto de una vez para siempre,
La luz ya no muestra su grieta alrededor de mi puerta,
Y no tengo una lampara para brillarte un camino a casa,

Tu no eres un santo que esta arriba de todo,
Dandole a alguine una caminata por las flores,
Tienes mucho mas de que soñar,
Oh chica, vela el barco, no lo undas,
Esta vez,
Esta vez,
Esta vez.

Disculpa mis faltas de ortografia lol

4th time tonight and i just pulled back the blankets. i'll switch to my iTunes and put Girl Sailor in a loop. The play count's going way up tonight. Maybe I should loop the whole album

I am neither a sailor nor a girl, yet somehow this song resonates on so many levels. Go figure.
