Girl on the Wing
The Shins Lyrics


One wound up punch of intuition
Lays flat my whole take on us
You're the girl on the wing of a barnstormer
The tidal rabbit who came of age before her time

Could have been so good-natured
If I'd relented when you insisted
But we've been backed against
All nature's walls for too long
You felt abandoned by me
I recall the sunshine as you were melting
And though the comedy softens the fall
They still hear us with their ears to the wall

I sold all my evil motives
No icicles stuck in my hide
I'm through with riddles, I know we're little
Just help me feel warm inside

Before we take this ride and let it slide
Into the cracks where fall and winter collide
I surrender all my gall in a song of modern love
Remember you're the one who summoned me above any other kind
Any other kind

Could have been so good-natured
If you'd relented when I insisted
We take a week off, let the garden grow by itself
And let the gluttons fill themselves with all the worst of the gory nineties
And though the comedy softens the fall, we still fall short

Before we take this ride and let it slide
Into the cracks where fall and winter collide
I surrender all my gall in a song of modern love
Remember you're the one who summoned me above any other kind
Any other kind

Lyrics:
One wound up punch of intuition
Lays flat my whole take on us.
You're the girl on the wing of a barnstormer
The tidal rabbit who came of age before her time.

We could have been so good-natured
If i'd relented when you insisted,
But we've been backed against
All nature's walls far too long.

You felt abandoned by me,
I recall the sunshine as you were melting
And though the comedy softens the fall
They still hear us with their ears to the wall.

I sold all my evil motives,
No icicles stuck in my hide.
I'm through with riddles, i know we're little
Just help me feel warm inside.

Before we take this ride and let it slide
Into the cracks where fall and winter collide.
I surrender all my gall in a song of modern love.
Remember you're the one who summoned me above any other kind.

We could have been so good-natured
If you'd relented when i insisted,
We take a week off, let the garden grow by itself
And let the gluttons fill themselves with all the worst of the gory ninties.
And though the comedy softens the fall, we stall fall short.

Before we take this ride and let it slide
Into the cracks where fall and winter collide.
I surrender all my gall in a song of modern love.
Remember you're the one who summoned me above any other kind

Song reminds me of taking walks by myself in Germany with my headphones and tuning out everybody else.

That walllllll part gives me this euphoric feeling in my gut.

the ghost with the most.

I recall the sunshine as you were melting.

until we take this ride, and let it slide
into the past where fall and winter collide
I surrender all my gall
in a song of modern love.
remember you're the one who summoned me above any
any other kind.

First shins' song I ever heard. I've listened to pretty much all their released work so far. This one still ranks among my top 3 favorite songs of them.
