Ben Gibbard Teardrop Windows Lyrics

Last updated: 11/12/2012 07:38:00 AM


Teardrop windows crying in the sky, he is all alone and wondering why
Ivory white, but feeling kinda blue, cause there's no one there to share the view
There's too many vacancies, he's been feeling all so empty
And when the sun sets over the Sound, he just goes to sleep

Built in boast, as the tallest on the coast
He was once the city's only toast
In old post cards, was positioned as the star, he was looked up to with fond regard
But in 1962 the Needle made it's big debut
And everybody forgot what it outgrew

He wonders where the workers are, who once filled every floor
The elevators operate, but don't much anymore, anymore, anymore
Teardrop windows crying in the sky, how the years have quickly passed him by
Gleaming white against the deepest baby blue, he is lonely just like me and you
There's too many vacancies, he's been feeling all so empty
When the sun sets over the Sound, he just goes to sleep
There's to many vacant seats, he's been feeling all so empty
And when the maids, they turn off the lights, he just goes to sleep
