All The Time
The Strokes Lyrics


Those that try anything once
Should we care about the only ones?

All the time that I need is never quite enough
All the time that I have is all that's necessary

You're livin' a lie
You're livin' a lie
You're livin' too fast
You've got to cope with the past
You never ask why
You never ask why
You're livin' a lie
Baby, you're flying too high

No one talks
About the war
On my block
Or by the shore

All alone in a room
Do you want what I want, too?
All the time in the world
Is all that's necessary

You're livin' a lie
You're livin' a lie
You're livin' too fast
You've got to cope with the past
You never ask why
You never ask why
You're livin' a lie
Baby, you're flying too high

You never ask why
You never ask why
You're livin' a lie
Baby, you're flying too high
Don't get on your phone
Don't reach for the door
You know the answer that you're looking for

You're livin' a lie
You're livin' a lie
You're livin' too fast
You've got to cope with the past
You never ask why
You never ask why
You're livin' a lie
Baby, you're flying too high

The coolest band ever

Mr. Spideydude

@Aurora I like 1D but of course they're a bigger band, they were pop and a *boy band*, which is garners a massive audience.

1D has more awards but they're mostly popularity awards, which aren't bad but also don't compete directly with guys like The Strokes (btw, they have a Grammy lol). 1D have great songs both musically and lyrically, but they're way simpler than Strokes songs (again, not that it's a bad thing).

Btw, the guy didn't even say that The Strokes were the best, but that they were the coolest. No point in coming to a Strokes music video to comment that 🤷🏽‍♂️

You again

@Fallen Mind listening to this indie song / faceless humming by The Impures/// is a Great underrated hidden gem song

@Aurora I know what you wanted to say but I mean, the awards are not everything I think that Is more important what the band has done to the music

Stop trying to copy and invent yourself

I would love a jacket like his from the MTV 2 dollar bill concert. It's just so cool looking.

His dad owned a modeling agency . Try looking at his stuff.
