Everlasting Arms
Vampire Weekend Lyrics


I took your council and came to ruin
Lead me to myself, leave me to myself
I took your council and came to ruin
Leave me to myself, lead me to myself
Oh I was made to live without you
But I'm never gonna understand, never understand
Oh I was born to live without you
But I'm never gonna understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up for the fields trapped beneath the chandelier
It's going down

I thought it over, and drew the curtain
Leave me to myself, lead me to myself
I hummed the Dies Irae you played the Hallelujah
Lead me to myself, don't leave me in myself

If you'd been made to serve a master
You be fighting by the open night, fighting by the hand
Could I have been made to serve a master
When I'm never gonna understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up full of fear trapped beneath the chandelier
It's going down
Hold me in your everlasting arms
Looked up full of fear trapped beneath the chandelier
It's going down
Hold me in your everlasting arms

I took your counsel and came to ruin,
Leave me to myself, leave me to myself
I took your counsel and came to ruin,
Leave me to myself, oh lead me to my cell
Oh I was made to live without you,
But I'm never gonna understand, never understand
Oh I was born to live without you,
But I'm never gonna understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Look up full of fear, trapped beneath the chandelier
That's going down

I thought it over and drew the curtain,
Lead me to my cell, lead me to my cell
I hummed the Dies Irae as you played the Hallelujah
Lead me to my cell, oh lead me to my cell

If you'd been made to serve a master
You'd be frightened by the open hand, frightened by the hand
Could I have been made to serve a master
Well I'm never gonna understand, never understand

Hold me in your everlasting arms
Look up full of fear, trapped beneath the chandelier
That's going down
Hold me in your everlasting arms
Look up full of fear, trapṗed beneath the chandelier
That's going down

Hold me in your everlasting arms

ok i have always thought he said "japanese" chandelier instead of "trapped beneath the chandelier"

Love how this one takes all the elements of their first album- classical bits, african beats, guitar solos- and makes it sound way more matured. Such a great album

I just found this song today and see you've uploaded it on the same day three years ago. Can't believe it has been that long already.
