“Slow Show” by The National

“I made a mistake in my life today. Everything I love gets in drawers.”

Standing at the punch table swallowing punch
Can’t pay attention to the sound of anyone
A little more stupid, a little more scared
Every minute more unprepared

So you can

God, I’m very, very frightening, I’ll overdo it

Looking for somewhere to stand and stay
I leaned on the wall and the wall leaned away

My leg is sparkles, my leg is pins
I better get my shit , better gather my shit in
You could drive a car through my head in five minutes
From one of it to the other

I wanna hurry to you
Put on a slow, dumb show for you and crack you up
So you can put a blue ribbon on my brain
God I’m very, very frightening, I’ll overdo it

You know I dreamed about you
I missed you for, for 29 years


I'm routinely overestimated.
