Cardinal Song

This song is by The National and appears on the album Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers (2003).

Original video
Never look her in the eyes
Never tell the truth
If she knows you're paper
You know she'll have to burn you
Never tell the one you want
That you do
Save it for the deathbed
When you know you kept her wanting you

And do everything
She'd never do

Fall asleep with stranger's wives
The wild wives of unknown men
Good for you, you've just become
Just another one of them
Never say you miss her
Never say a word

And do everything
She'd never do

Don't let her see
Your cardinal eyes

Let her treat you like a criminal
So you can treat her like a priest
Girls, forgive my human mind
Girls, forgive me one more time
Never tell the one you love
That you do
Save it for the deathbed

And do everything
She'd never do

Don't let her see
Your cardinal eyes
Don't let her see
Your cardinal eyes

Jesus Christ, you have confused me
Cornered, wasted, blessed, and used me
Forgive me, girls, I am confused
Stiff, and pissed, and lost, and loose

Jesus Christ, you have confused me
Cornered, wasted, blessed, and used me
Forgive me, girls, I am confused
Stiff, and pissed, and lost, and loose
