LYRICS: The National – Tropic Morning News

[Verse 1]

I wasn’t starting yet

I didn’t even think you were listening

I wasn’t ready at all

To say anything about anything interesting

It’s a thing you have

You just don’t know that you do it

You wait around in a conversation

While I get in and start stumbling through it

[Chorus]

I was so distracted then

I didn’t have it straight in my head

I didn’t have my face on yet or the role or the feel

Of where I was going with it all

I was suffering more than I let on

The tropic morning news was on

There’s nothing stopping me now

From saying all the painful parts out loud

[Verse 2]

Got to my feet

Feeling that I’d let you down

Wanted to say it slow and perfect

But it all somehow got switched around

Something went off on its own

My dumb, automatic chit-chat

It’s not what I meant to say at all

There’s no way you can attach me to that

[Chorus]

Got up to seize the day

With my head in my hands feeling strange

When all my thinking got mangled

And I caught myself talking myself off the ceiling

I was suffering more than I let on

The tropic morning news was on

There’s nothing stopping me now

From saying all the painful parts out loud

[Post-Chorus]

Oh, where are all the moments we’d have?

Oh, where’s the brain we shared?

Something somehow has you rapidly improving

Oh, what happened to the wavelength we were on?

Oh, where’s the gravity gone?

Something somehow has you rapidly improving

[Bridge]

You found the ache in my argument

You couldn’t wait to get out of it

You found the slush in my sentiment

You made it sound so intelligent

You can stop and start an athlete’s heart

How do I feel about it?

I would love to have nothing to do with it

I would like to move on and be through with it

[Verse 3]

I’ll be over here lying near the ocean

Making ocean sounds

Let me know if you can come over

And work the controls for a while

[Chorus]

I was so distracted then

I didn’t have it straight in my head

I didn’t have my face on yet or the role or the feel

Of where I was going with it all

I was suffering more than I let on

The tropic morning news was on

There’s nothing stopping me now

From saying all the painful parts out loud

[Post-Chorus]

Oh, where are all the moments we’d have?

Oh, where’s the brain we shared?

Something somehow has you rapidly improving

Oh, what happened to the wavelength we were on?

Oh, where’s the gravity gone?

Something somehow has you rapidly improving
