29 years lyrics – the national

could you tell the enchantment i said goodbye
i met a girl called disillusionment
could you tell her i made the headlines
this boy drawed wings on everything

could you tell her to check the headlines
this boy burns angels in the river
you know i dreamed about you
for 29 years before
i saw you

you know i dreamed about you
i missed you for 29 years
bird that flys out of order
underneath the sky

i run up to the rainbow, girl
just to p*ss it by
i’ll never have a change of heart
i swore i’d never sing

i have no heart this one is gone
and now i wear the wings
you know i dreamed about you
for 29 years before
i saw you

you know i dreamed about you
i missed you for 29 years
you know i dreamed about you
for 29 years before
i saw you

you know i dreamed about you
i missed you for 29 years
you know i dreamed about you
for 29 years before
i saw you
