"Turn On Me" as written by and Aaron Dessner Matt Berninger....
Do you see rhythms in the ocean water when it reflects the moon?
If it hasn't already happened to you, it's gonna happen soon
Do the lines in your kitchen table only show you how to drown?
And your mother's angst the day you were born, the day you cut her down

You used to have me by the arm
You'd walk me up the darkest stairways
Gone to hide, I'm way too far
I've no idea where you are

Do leaves fall down in perfect sentences?
Do maggots crawl your name?
Do mirrors laugh at you behind your back?
Are you constantly ashamed?
Do rugs slither between your feet
And chase you slowly to the sea?
Do tree branches bend down and ask you
If you're finally ready?

You used to have me by the arm
You'd walk me up the darkest stairways
Gone to hide, I'm way too far
I've no idea where you are

When you turn, when you turn on me
Will I see when you turn, when you turn on me?
Will I see when I turn around will you be there
At the center of the world like you promised to be?
But you suddenly seem like a stranger
I can't tell anymore what you want from me

Does your family think you're too far gone? Do you wonder if they're right?
Are you different than you used to be? Are you alone somewhere tonight?
Do you think maybe you're just a little afraid and haven't really done the serious thinking?
Do I really need to hold your hand and walk you all the way up into the moonlight blinking?

You used to have me by the arm
You'd walk me up the darkest stairways
You've gone one to hide, I'm way too far
I've no idea where you are

When you turn, when you turn on me
Will I see when you turn, when you turn on me?
Will I see when I turn around will you be there
At the center of the world like you promised to be?
But when you suddenly seem like a stranger
I can't tell anymore what you want from me
