The Shins Bait And Switch Lyrics

Last updated: 10/28/2012 07:30:49 AM

I finally had all my ducks in a row
Peace and quiet by means of subtraction
How she got in I'm not sure that I know
Two weeks on and my spine was in traction
My eyes in a basket

My gut and my heart are so out of phase,
And that kind of girl she ain't nobody's daughter
I'm just not used to these powerful waves
She's shining the brass and I'm taking on water
What am I to do now?

I call on a beautiful witch,
with a moral compass Bait and switch
Hide from my physic derailleur
Drive this car to the sea
Spend the night as high as I can
In a towering hemlock

But it's no use I can always be found
A creature of habit has no real protection
I tell her I'll leave if she don't settle down
She see's it's a lie on closer inspection
Like everyone else does

Been rubbing a terrible charm
Holding smoke in my arms
I'm just a simple man
Cursed with an honest heart
Watch her go and tear it all apart

Been rubbing a terrible charm
Holding smoke in my arms
I'm just a simple man
Cursed with an honest heart
Watch her go and tear it all apart
