29 Years

This song is by The National and appears on the album The National (2001).

Could you tell the enchantment, I said goodbye
I met a girl named "disillusionment"
Could you tell her I made the headlines?
'Cause this boy draws wings on everything
Could you tell her to check the headlines?
'Cause this boy burns angels in the river

You know, I dreamed about you for 29 years before
I saw you
You know, I dreamed about you
I missed you for 29 years

Bird that flying out of order
Underneath the sky
I run up to the rainbow, girl
Just to pass it by
And I'll never have a change of heart
My swan will never sing
I have no heart, the swan is gone
And now I wear the wings

You know, I dreamed about you for 29 years before
I saw you
You know, I dreamed about you
I missed you for 29 years
You know I dreamed about you for 29 years before
I saw you
You know I dreamed about you for 29 years before
I saw you
