Crooked Teeth (Album Version)

Crooked Teeth (Album Version)

Death Cab for Cutie

It was 100 degrees as we sat beneath a willow tree
Whose tears didn't care they just hung in the air
And refused to fall, to fall
I knew I'd made a horrible call
And now the state line felt like the Berlin wall
And there was no doubt about which side I was on

Cause I built you a home in my heart with rotten wood that decayed from the start
Cause you can't find nothing at all if there was nothing there all along
No you can't find nothing at all if there was nothing there all along

I braved treacherous streets
And kids strung out on homemade speed
And we shared a bed in which I could not sleep
At all...
At night, the sun in the trees
Made the skyline look like crooked teeth
In the mouth of a man who was devouring, us both
You're so cute when you're slurring your speech
But they're closing the bar and they want us to leave

And you can't find nothing at all if there was nothing there all along
No you can't find nothing at all if there was nothing there all along

Idle war of head versus heart
It's always this way
My head is weak it always speaks
Before I know what it will say

Cause you can't find nothing at all if there was nothing there all along
No you can't find nothing at all if there was nothing there all along
There were churches, theme parks and malls
There was nothing there all along
