“All the Wine” by The National

“I carry the dollhouse safe on my shoulders through the black city, nightlights are on in the corners and everyone’s sleeping upstairs all safe and sound, all safe and sound.”

I’m put together beautifully, big wet bottle in my fists, big wet rose in my teeth

like every Californian
So tall I take over the street with high-beams shining on my back
A wingspan unbelievable,

And all the wine is all for me
And all the wine is all for me

I’m so sorry but the motorcade will have to go around me this time
‘Cause God is on my side and I’m the child bride

And all the wine is all for me
And all the wine is all for me

I carry the dollhouse safe on my shoulders
Through the black city, nightlights are on in the corners
And everyone’s sleeping upstairs
All safe and sound

All safe and sound
I won’t let the psychos around
All safe and sound
I won’t let the psychos around

I’m in a state, I’m in a state
Nothing can touch us, my love
I’m in a state, I’m in a state
Nothing can touch us, my love

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
