Start A War

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

Original video
We expected something, something better than before
We expected something more
Do you really think you can just put it in a safe
Behind a painting, lock it up and leave
Do you really think you can just put it in a safe
Behind a painting, lock it up and leave

Walk away now and you're gonna start a war

Whatever went away, I'll get it over now
I'll get money, I'll get funny again
Whatever went away, I'll get it over now
I'll get money, I'll get funny again

Walk away now and you're gonna start a war

We expected something, something better than before
We expected something more
You were always weird but I never had to hold you
By the edges like I do now
You were always weird but I never had to hold you
By the edges like I do now

Walk away now and you're gonna start a war

Whatever went away, I'll get it over now
I'll get money, I'll get funny again
Whatever went away, I'll get it over now
I'll get money, I'll get funny again

Walk away now and you're gonna start a war
Walk away now and you're gonna start a war
