so long to the head strong lyrics – fleet foxes

this morning i received air mail letter 3 from my connection overseas.
i pulled the paper back,
you begin your attack and it means:

of all the places i laid down my head,
i think of two i regret
love isn’t easy my baby you’re sayin’ today

but tell mr. shoemaker i’ll be away
on a rocket or a comet or the dock of the bay
on a continental steam ship sailin’ away
on a one way ticket on a 1st cl*ss airplane
i wanna know what you’re thinkin’ about
don’t just let me go

four hundred days have p*ssed since i’ve heard from you last
i’m getting worried, i admit
maybe it’s nothing much
there’s nicer sh*r*s in sight
oh i just don’t know

of all the places i laid down my head i think of two i regret
love isn’t easy my baby we’d tell you today
but tell mr. shoemaker i’ll be away
on a rocket or a comet or the dock of the bay
on a continental steam ship sailin’ away
on a one way ticket on a 1st cl*ss airplane
i wanna know what you’re thinkin’ about
don’t just let me go

i’m sayin’ so long
i want my baby back
i know it’s hard to see
why she’s in love with me
i’m sayin’ so long
i want my baby back
i know it’s hard to see
why she’s in love with me
so long to the headstrong
i wasn’t qualified to lead that city life
that’s all i have to say
