Sorrow

SCROLL

The National – “Sorrow”

Sorrow found me when I was young
Sorrow waited, sorrow won
Sorrow, they put me on the pill
It’s in my honey, it’s in my milk

Don’t leave my hyper heart alone on the water
Cover me in rag and bone sympathy
‘Cause I don’t wanna get over you
I don’t wanna get over you

Sorrow’s my body on the waves
Sorrow’s a girl inside my cake
I live in a city sorrow built
It’s in my honey, it’s in my milk

Don’t leave my hyper heart alone on the water
Cover me in rag and bone sympathy
‘Cause I don’t wanna get over you
I don’t wanna get over you

Don’t leave my hyper heart alone on the water
Cover me in rag and bone sympathy
‘Cause I don’t wanna get over you
I don’t wanna get over you

The National is an indie rock band formed in Cincinnati, Ohio in 1999 and currently based in Brooklyn. They have been compared to Joy Division, Leonard Cohen, Wilco and Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. The name was chosen because it “didn’t mean anything” and the lyrics are written and sung by Matt Berninger, a baritone.
