Reptilia
The Strokes Lyrics


He seemed impressed by the way you came in
"Tell us a story, I know you're not boring"
I was afraid that you would not insist
"You sound so sleepy, just take this, now leave me"

I said, please don't slow me down if I'm going too fast
You're in a strange part of our town

Yeah, the night's not over, you're not trying hard enough
Our lives are changing lanes, you ran me off the road
The wait is over, I'm now taking over
You're no longer laughing, I'm not drowning fast enough

Now every time that I look at myself
"I thought I told you, this world is not for you"
The room is on fire as she's fixing her hair
"You sound so angry, just calm down, you found me"

I said please don't slow me down if I'm going too fast
You're in a strange part of our town

Yeah, the night's not over, you're not trying hard enough
Our lives are changing lanes, you ran me off the road
The wait is over, I'm now taking over
You're no longer laughing, I'm not drowning fast enough

Arghya Das

Soy el fuego que arde tu piel
Soy el agua que mata tu sed
El castillo, la torre, yo soy
La espada que guarda el caudal

Tú el aire que respiro yo
Y la luz de la luna en el mar
La garganta que ansio mojar
Que temo ahogar de amor

¿Y cuáles deseos me vas a dar?
Dices tú, 'mi tesoro basta con mirarlo'
Y tuyo será
Y tuyo será

Holy sh*t y'all, I've had this song in my head for literal months, but only the opening part, absolutely none of the lyrics so I couldn't google it (it was just the intro dunun du du dun repeating guitar riff) but the only place I've ever heard this song was in a music history class my freshman year of high school (so like 2017), and I was so desperate to find out what song it was I emailed that teacher, and even he wasn't sure what song it was, but I told him that it was rock music and that the artist was male (I also vaguely remembered something about it reminded me of lizards, but my brain makes really weird connections and associations so this was not considered a vital piece of information), so he told me a few artists that we studied that fit the criteria, but when each artist has possibly hundreds of songs it was impossible to narrow it down enough to even entertain the idea of finding it, so I gave up. It's a few weeks later now, I'm supposed to be asleep, but I was just thinking about lizards, idk why I just like lizards, and somehow the word reptilia floated into focus just enough for me to, without meaning to, go "hey thats a song title" which I literally have no clue how I even remembered that, but oh my god was it the fastest I've ever gotten out of bed. I'd consider this the most important revelation I've had during quarantine. I absolutely cannot believe I found this song.

Well, you've quite possibly found the song that led you the one of the best bands in the world. "Reptilia" is one of the songs that led me to the rest of the work.r#TheStrokes #Reptilia
