National, The - You've Done It Again, Virginia Lyrics




You had fun, but you couldn't get him out of the car
I guess mamma's boys only go so far
You went in and put a record on
To make it sound like someone was home
And thanked yourself for pouring yourself a drink

Try to figure out and laugh yourself to the showers
Burn yourself alive and join the monster squad
They say in this place you can reinvent yourself

Well you've done it again, Virginia
Made another masterpiece while I was dreaming
How does it feel to feel like you?
Brilliant sugar, brilliant sugar, brilliant sugar, turn over

A cool, tall, drink of water
is all you ever wanted to be
And if you had another wish to wish
you'd be fun and moving

But you can't talk to people, right?
You can't tell a story
You're tall, long legged
and your heart's full of liquor
And me and everybody are just ice in a glass

Try to figure out and laugh yourself to the showers
Burn yourself alive and join the monster squad
They say in this place you can reinvent yourself

Well you've done it again, Virginia
Made another masterpiece while I was dreaming
How does it feel to feel like you?
Brilliant sugar, brilliant sugar, brilliant sugar, turn over

    I bought this album yesterday, like i saw it in my music store and I almost had a heart attack :D then I looked at the price and it was kinda expensive :l but my dad said: ´´ Hey, Money is meant to spend boi, if you really like it, buy it ´´ and i was like OH WHAT THE HELL :D. 1 hour later I was crying at home while listening to it by the magnificence of the songs. It was worth the price.

    @kmacmuzikmafia27 In one of the segments from the recent making-of/performance series, when they did a bunch of new songs off High Violet at the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Matt talks about the "impressionistic" quality of their lyrics and singing, and how it's kind of more engaging when one mishears the lyrics, as it allows one to project themselves into the music. ;)

  20. Dana Conrad

    This is actually the version I prefer, and definitely one of my favorite songs

  21. Sara Darling

    @vanderlylegeeks This is totally not The National's "older stuff".

    Rob Ogden

    It is now ;)

  22. Marius Weber

    1 guy did not do it again (fuck probably)

  23. nubbs

    is that sufjan with the brass?

  24. Kelly MacLeod

    I always thought he was saying "sugar brain, sugar brain, sugar brain turn over" but according to most lyric sites it's "brilliant sugar." I can definitely hear my mistake now, lol. I still like my version though :)

  25. Pat
