Cold War Kids

Cold War Kids - Every Valley Is Not a Lake

rate me

Don't bother grandma 'cause she's right

Or you'll be in some mess

I see how you see her, creaky bones,

Bitchin' 'bout IRS

Well take a look child, through this photo album

Just think they'd used to sell out a baseball stadium

Nineteen forty-eight

Well now you'll graduate and you think

You're going to move out now

I will congratulate you as soon

As you pay your own way

Not tryin' to stick a pin in your shiny new balloon

Your alimony check won't buy a bigger room

Or a new car

Don't ever think about comin' 'round here

With that junoir from up the street

His sneakers squeakin' on the kitchen tile,

Hat pulled below his eyes

That boy is trouble in his sleep

You got your father's wreckless charm, babe

Long as you givin', some body take

Well, every story is not the gospel, babe

Let me put it in another way

Every valley is not a lake

Before I let you go with your friends,

Got one more thing to say

You think my love is tough, should've seen

Your grandma in her day

Oh, use your wits child,

'Cause nothing stays the same

In forty years my song will be public domain

Oh oh oh

Sharp top, quick switch

Sharp top, quick switch

Well make

My own apology bad
