Conor Oberst - I Got the Reason No.2

rate me

You know a lot can happen after everybody falls asleep

Ask the forest fire, ask the cop walking on the beat

And do right by them, work a little in your dreams

Don't let time rob you, hold onto your memories

In the glass houses, in the pages of the Rolling Stone

I get a sick feeling, like I'm rocking in a little boat

I hear the big church bell, it's ringing like a mobile phone

It's such a long Sunday drive to be taking it all alone

I want to belong to a reason

And cut a new key to the kingdom

And if anybody asks me, say I want to belong

If anybody asks me, say that it won't take long now

If anybody asks me, say I'm going to get it done

If anybody asks me, say I got a reason, oh

In the vast hard drive, in the satellites that kick and spin

They keep the old footage so everything can live again

Pretty pink roses, the ostrich and the elephant

It's the last Noah's ark, so everything's got to fit

In the creased pages of a letter I been trying to send

To a young widow who is desperate for some kind of friend

You'll find a long list of eligible, handsome men

Who want to lay with her upon the table of the elements

They're going to hold strong to a reason

And cut a new key to the kingdom

And if anybody asks 'em, say they're going to belong

And if anybody asks 'em, say that it won't take long now

And if anybody asks 'em, say Man I'm trying to get it done

And if anybody asks 'em, say they've got a reason, oh
