Knowing you
You'll wait for clear skies
To tell us how changes come about
With the sunlight
So we'll count every drop that falls
While you throw us some old line
This will pass, this will pass...

And I'm spending your time
Wasting your time
You're with all you've ever wanted
And I'm spending your time
Wasting your time
You're with all you've ever wanted

    General CommentThis song does indeed exist, go ahead and ask on the Strokes message board on their website.

    Anyways, Fab wrote the song for the credits of a Drew Barrymore documentary. it's an awesome song.

    basically, it's about a guy who's so full of himself that he thinks this stupid girl (whom the girl is really just very peaceful) should be fulfilled to simply be with him ("You're with all you've ever wanted") when it's really not the case.

    General Commenti heard a rumour on a forum somewhere that "Killing Lies", a song from the new album, was actually this re-recorded....if thats true then it would be amazing but im not getting my hopes up
