Val Jester

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

Build a fire for Val Jester
Build a room for your love
Take your time when you tell her
How she lives in your blood

You should have looked after her better
You should have looked after her more
You should have locked the door

Fill her coat with weapons
And help her get it on
'Cause one day when she goes
She's gone

You should have held onto her better
You should have held onto her more
You should have locked the door

All the most important people in New York are nineteen
All the most important people in New York
All the most important people in New York are nineteen
All the most important people in New York
