City Middle

This song is by The National and appears on the album Alligator (2005).

Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la
Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la

I've got $500 in twenties and I've got a ton of great ideas
I'm really worked up
I'm on a good mixture, I don't want to waste it
I'm on a good mixture, I do not want to waste it

I want to go gator around the warm beds of beginners
I'm really worked up

Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la
Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la

I have weird memories of you wearing long red socks and red shoes
I have weird memories
I have weird memories of you pissing in a sink, I think
I have weird memories of you

I wanna go gator around the warm beds of beginners
I'm really worked up
I wanna go gator around the warm beds of beginners
I'm really worked up

Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la
Karen, take me to the nearest famous city middle where they hang the lights
Where it's random and it's common versus common, la, la, la

I have weird memories of you
Wearing long red socks and red shoes
I have weird memories
I have weird memories of you
Pissing in a sink, I think
I have weird memories of you

Parking your car, you said
"I'm overwhelmed", you were
Thinking out loud, you said
"I'm overwhelmed", you were
Parking your car, you said
"I'm overwhelmed", you were
Thinking out loud, you said
"I'm overwhelmed", you said

"I think I'm like Tennessee Williams
I wait for the click
I wait but it doesn't kick in
I think I'm like Tennessee Williams
I wait for the click
I wait but it doesn't kick in"

I have weird memories of you
Wearing long red socks and red shoes
I have weird memories
I have weird memories of you
Pissing in a sink, I think
I have weird memories of you

I have weird memories of you
