I don't bleed you
i just need to see you
I would love to turn your vice
and make silly twice

She isn't dreamy
she just needs to see me
drowning in the main stream flow
and frowning where ever I go

So come down little one
leave your place in the sun
So come down little one
leave your place in the sun

I come in bleeding
stumbling round and needing
I love to burn your trash
and make a picture with the ash

I come storming before your cloud starts forming
I would love to cut your hair
and leave an empty promise there

So come down little one
leave your place in the sun
So come down little one
leave your place in the sun

Start your engine but don't forget to mention
to your friend that I need work
don't reminded her I'm a jerk

Inter clowning
and join me while I'm downing
drink to get some poision herbs
curtisy of the Suburbs

So come down little one
leave your place in the sun
come down little one
leave your place in the sun
come down little one
leave your place in the sun
come down little one
leave your place in the sun
come down little one
leave your place in the sun

    General Commenthave you actually heard the song? its brilliant and one of the sweetest things I've ever heard... they're a really strange band, its an amazingly talented pop songwriting black dude and these two emaciated sort of indie hipster kids... its the perfect band for a girl like me who's two favorite bands are wu tang and belle and sebastian, if i'm not too lazy i'll post more lyrics, they have like 4 albums out its stupid only this song is posted

    as for the meaning... he loves a girl who loves him too, but stubbornly refuses to get off her high horse about everything. shes the kind of girl who has a "place in the sun." he simultaneously needs her to be the good one who holds things together ("don't forget to mention/ to your friend that i need work") and wants her to let go of herself ("join me while i'm drowning")

    i read that this was about his ex-wife, so maybe all the animosity at the beginning means that their not together anymore... but hes singing these cruel things in the sweetest possible melody, so i think there's some ambivalence
