Pay for Me

The National


I thought I'd come and see you
And your long and lazy scene

Given stage direction, finger on a magazine
I'll call you what I knew you
I can't get used to your new name

Send a body double over with your keys
She'll see you in an hour
Everybody quiet please
Essex House is down the road
The actors want to be alone

Your room is still and soft
As a jeweller's
Incidental music coming down the hall
Remember when I never had to wait for you at all
I wish my hands were yours
As I lay your keys on a magazine

Take me to Laguardia
My baby's gonna pay for me

Bottle from the duty-free
I'll drink it all across the sea
Lay me down business class
Headphones and a sleeping mask

She's gonna pay for me
She's gonna pay for me

Brother, I wish you were home
Just tell me you're not alone
Call me back, I'm on a plane
I think I'm somewhere over Spain
I'm in the dark without the stars
I've never seen a black so dark
Thought I'd be above the rain
Somewhere on a higher plane

Oh brother, I wish you were home
My brother, I wish you were home

Baby, you're asleep by now
You never stayed awake for me
You never waited up for me
No, you never waited up for me
Now there is nothing I can do
I lost you but I beat the sound
Couldn't if I wanted to
The Concorde doesn't turn around

Oh brother, I wish you were home
My baby is in a room alone
My brother, I wish you were home
