​Bitters & Absolut

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

Sweetie, you don't look so good
Your bottom lip is bleeding
I cut it on your collarbone
Go on, go back to sleep
Sugar, who were you thinking of
You woke me with your breathing
Honey, how am I supposed to tell

If I were a spy in the world inside your head
Would I be your wife in a better life you led

Thought I saw you on the stairs
Of this American century
I went up through all the years
But you were years ahead of me
Remember when you dipped your hand
I never saw it coming
You took the wind out of me

If I were a spy in the world inside your head
Would I be your wife in the better life you led

I'd do you better than you do
I'd do you better than you ever will
When I'm on bitters and Absolut

If I were a spy in the world inside your head
Would I be your wife in a better life you led

I'd do you better than you do
I'd do you better than you ever will
When I'm on bitters and Absolut
When I'm on bitters and Absolut
