Song Of The Day!

I KNOW this song is old news now. But I think since I've been listening to it daily for months and months and I'm still not even the slightest bit bored of it, it deserves a mention. And I way prefer it to the original... I'm sorry, it's just better. Although, thanks to Arcade Fire for some wicked lyrics.



In the suburbs I
I learned to drive
And you told me we'd never survive,
Grab your mother's keys we're leaving.

You always seemed so sure 
That one day we'd be fighting 
In a suburban war, 
Your part of town against mine. 

I saw you standing on the opposite shore 
But by the time the first bombs fell, 
We were already bored. 
We were already, already bored. 

Sometimes I can't believe it, 
I'm moving past the feeling. 
Sometimes I can't believe it, 
I'm moving past the feeling again. 

Kids wanna be so hard 
But in my dreams we're still screaming and running through the yard 
And all of the walls that they built in the seventies finally fall, 
And all of the houses they built in the seventies finally fall. 
Meant nothing at all, 
It meant nothing. 

Sometimes I can't believe it, 
I'm moving past the feeling. 
Sometimes I can't believe it, 
I'm moving past the feeling and into the night. 

So can you understand? 
Why I want a daughter while I'm still young, 
I wanna hold her hand 
And show her some beauty 
Before all this damage is done. 
But if it's too much to ask,
If it's too much to ask, 
Then send me a son. 

Under the overpass 
In the parking lot we're still waiting, 
It's already past 
So move your feet from hot pavement and into the grass. 
Cause it's already past, 
It's already, already past. 

Sometimes I can't believe it, 
I'm moving past the feeling. 
Sometimes I can't believe it, 
I'm moving past the feeling again. 

I'm moving past the feeling, 
I'm moving past the feeling. 
In my dreams we're still screaming, 
We're still screaming, 
We're still screaming.
