Lemonworld lyrics-pablo

Backstory: Just playing with formatting in Pablo while I was listening to the song “Lemonworld” by The National. Bittersweet song, and this excerpt inspired a tiny bit of vision : a long drive, alone with thoughts, off for a short break that is nothing more than that but everything in the moment. You and your sister live in a Lemonworld I want to sit in and die…

The National employs some dense lyricism but it hits me right here. And no, I’ve never been in an army.

The rest of the song:

This pricey stuff makes me dizzy
I guess I’ve always been a delicate man
Takes me a day to remember a day
I didn’t mean to let it get so far out of hand
I was a comfortable kid
But I don’t think about it much anymore
Lay me on the table, put flowers in my mouth
And we can say that we invented a summer lovin’ torture party
I’m too tired to drive anyway, anyway right now
Do you care if I stayed?
You can put on your bathing suits
And I’ll try to find something on this thing that means nothin’ enough
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
I want to sit in and die
You and your sister live in a Lemonworld
Doo doo doo doo doo doo doo doo
Losin’ my breath
Doo doo doo doo doo doo
