Life Is Simple in the Moonlight
The Strokes Lyrics


Animals on TV singing
About some pain that they once felt
There's no one I disapprove of more or root for more than myself
I wanted to pretend that it was better, better, better on the phone
I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous and alone

So we talk about ourselves and how
To forget the love we never felt
All the old jokes that work so well
You never were so sure, was the moment

Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Get out of the way

Got to get to climb your tree in the light of the living ghost I see
She sees her father in that old man's eyes while secretly he stares at her thighs
Animals on TV singing about some pain they felt at some point
I didn't wanna tell you I was jealous, jealous, jealous, what's the point?

As I watched the velvet drapes appear
And the door was closed for forty years
As we hide what we don't want to hear
As we hide our dream, near here

He is coming from a part of hell
Where, like Nanbu, I don't go down well
He can tell that we're oblivious
It's addiction and routine as well

Making fools out of the best of us
Making robots of the rest of us
In that sense, I tell, in America today
There's a crime, just like going out westward, says

Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Don't try to stop us
Get out of the way
