Boston
by Vampire Weekend

Chestnut Park on a Saturday night
Mystical boys feelin' alright
Raggedy wisdom falls from my hands
The ladies of Cambridge know who I am

I've had dreams of Boston all of my life
Chinatown between the sounds of the night

But if you leave I just don't think I could take... it
Take... it
Take... it
Take... it

Graveyard bricks were falling in style
The Lady's the pharaoh, Charles is the Nile
That's the museum price you could pay
As the stones of your fathers stand there today

I've had dreams of Boston all of my life
Chinatown between the sounds of the night

But if you leave I just don't think I could take... it
Take... it
Take... it
Take... it

I've had dreams of Boston all of my life
Chinatown between the sounds of the night

'Cause when you left my room to go to the kitchen
I imagined that you were dead
A morbid streak runs through the whole of my family
But for you I could put it to rest

But if you leave I just don't think I could take... it
Take... it
Take... it
Take
