Not the Same Anymore
The Strokes Lyrics


You're not the same anymore
Don't wanna play that game anymore
You'd make a better window than a door
Oh, the strangers they implore
It gets so easy to ignore
Just like the girl next door

Uncle's house, it was noon
Sorry boy, I can't implore ya
You are strange, but I like you
Sorry this is overdue
I promised I would do it right
Her and a boy on a Saturday night

And now the door slams shut
A child prisoner grows up
To seek his enemy's throat cut
I'm on and on it, on and on and on
We're on the way, fuel the jet
Can see that what he wants, he gets
What does your sworn enemy regret?

I didn't know, I didn't care
I don't even understand
Did somethin' wrong, I wasn't sure
Stay on top of this, or else
I was afraid I fucked up
Yeah, yeah, yeah
I couldn't change, it's too late

And now it's time to show up
Late again, I can't grow up
And now, it's on me they've given up

Uncle's house, I forget
Violent tendencies I get
Your timin' sucks, she went overboard
Don't forget, you are insured
I didn't know, I wasn't sure
Can't remember all that well
I couldn't change, was too late
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Verse 1]

Letra en español (la cuarentena me tiene traduciendo todoo jajja)

Ya no eres el mismo
No quiero jugar más a ese juego
Haces mejor una ventana que una puerta

Oh, los extraños que imploran
Se hace tan fácil ignorar
Igual que la chica de al lado

La casa del tío, era mediodía
Perdón chico, no puedo emplearte
Eres un extraño, pero me gustas
Perdón esto está atrasado
Prometí que lo haría bien
Ella y un chico en una noche de sábado

Y ahora la puerta se cierra de un portazo
Un chico prisionero crece
Para buscar el corte de garganta de su enemigo

Estamos en camino, combustible en el jet
Puedo ver lo que él quiere, lo que consigue
¿De qué se arrepiente tu enemigo jurado?

No lo sabía, no me importaba
Ni siquiera lo entendía

Hice algo mal
No estaba seguro
Mantente al tanto de esto, de lo contrario

Tenía miedo
Lo arruiné, sí
No pude cambiarlo, es demasiado tarde

Y ahora es tiempo de mostrarse
Tarde otra vez, no puedo crecer
Y ahora depende de mí que hayan renunciado

La casa del tío, me olvidé
Consigo tendencias violentas
Tu puntualidad apesta
Ella se fue por la borda
No te olvides que estás asegurado
No lo sabía
No estaba seguro
No puedo recordar eso muy bien
No pude cambiarlo, era demasiado tarde, sí

-¿Valió la pena esperar 7 años por un álbum de The Strokes?
-Valió cada maldito segundo

This is definitely a song you need to listen to with headphones to fully hear the beauty in each instrument, especially the bass outro.

Ryan Ransom

I'm not much of a headphone listener but I tried this song with them and man was it beautiful. Small parts I've never really heard while in the car. The ending instrumental had me very introspective

zaidabanksnyc

Totally agree!
