This song is by The National and appears on the album Boxer (2007).

Original video
Ada, don't talk about reasons why you don't want to talk
About reasons why you don't wanna talk
Now that you got everybody you consider sharp
All alone, all together, all together in the dark

Leave it all up in the air
Leave it all up in the air
Leave it all
Up in the air

Ada, put the sounds of your house in a song
Try to be speechless for a minute
If you think you're gonna faint, go out in the hallway
Let them all have your neck
Ada, don't stay in the lake too long
It lives alone and it barely knows you
It'll have a nervous breakdown and fall
Into a thousand pieces around you

Stand inside an empty tuxedo with grapes in my mouth
Waiting for Ada
Ada, hold onto yourself by the sleeves
I think everything counts a little more than we think

Leave it all up in the air
Leave it all up in the air
Leave it all
Up in the air

Ada
Ada
Ada
Ada, I can hear the sound of your laugh through the wall

Ada, don't talk about reasons why you don't want to talk
About reasons why you don't wanna talk
Now that you got everybody you consider sharp
All alone, all together, all together in the dark

Leave it all up in the air
Leave it all up in the air
Leave it all
Up in the air

Ada
Ada
Ada
Ada, I can hear the sound of your laugh through the wall
Ada
Ada
Ada
Ada, I've been hoping you know your way around
