This song goes like this.
And I might mess it up again, but...bare with me.)

Daddy please hear this song that I sing
In your heart there's a spark that just screams
For a lover to bring a child to your chest that could lay as you sleep
And love all you have left like your boy used to be
Long ago wrapped in sheets warm and wet

Blister please with those wings in your spine
Love to be with a brother of mine
How he'd love to find your tongue in his teeth
In a struggle to find secret songs that you keep wrapped in boxes so tight
Sounding only at night as you sleep

In my dreams you're alive and you're crying, as your mouth moves in mine soft and sweet, rings of flowers around your eyes and I'll love you for the rest of your life
You will see.

Brother, please, we are one in the same
And you left with your head filled with flames
And you watched as your brain fell out through your teeth
Push the pieces in place
Make the scar sweet to see
Don't you take this away
I'm still wanting your face on my cheek

And when we break we'll wait for our miracle
God is a place where some holy spectacle lies
And when we break we'll wait for our miracle
God is a place you will wait for the rest of your life

Two headed boy she is all you could need
She will feed you tomatoes and radio wires
And retire to sheets safe and clean
But don't hate her when she gets up to leave

    General CommentI'm a fan of Brand New but I'm an even bigger fan of NMH and I would never ever want to hear this cover.

    No one could ever do NMH any justice.
    I don't know why people keep trying.

    "They live to play their music not anyone elses"

    you typed that sentence on the lyrics page of a cover of a nmh by brand new.

    you are an idiot.

    re: megbrap

    i can't see any blatant spelling mistakes on this page, unless you're confusing typo's with spelling errors. realise is a british variation of 'realize', just in case that's what you were referring to.

    General CommentBrand New Has More Talent Than You. And As Far As Their Fan Base Liking Suicide... Their Fan Base Has Tranceneded The Stereotypical 'emo' Persona. Suicide Is For Those Ten And Eleven Year Olds Who Worship My Chemical Romance And Green Day. So If You Are Going To Criticize Brand New, I Suggest You Say Something Truthful. Not The Bullshit That You Just Said.

    General CommentOh lord, the emo stereotype from a Neutral Milk Hotel fanboy. How... moronic.

    I love NMH and Brand New, and this is my favorite NMH song, so I can't wait to hear this.

    General Commenthave you ever heard brand new?

    claiming they have no talent is obvious proof that you haven't.

    if you don't appreciate their talent in songwriting you obviously don't know much about good music.

    Go compare any artist you listen to's lyrics to Saetia. To Circle Takes the Square. To Portrait.

    Realise you're an idiot.
