Empty Nest lyrics

by

Silversun Pickups


[Verse 1]
Did you notice, did you notice our friends are running late?
So time to misbehave
When they get here, will they see clear the seeds that we have sown?
And speak of how they've grown?

[Refrain]
I will be here when they leave
I'll be rolling up my sleeves

[Verse 2]
Bitter taste of time wasted, a tickle in your throat
Nothing new to note
All fetters are feathers that keep us in suspense
They break and then they mend

[Refrain]
I wanna see you in your dreams
I need something new to see
I will see this to the end
I have no need to pretend

[Chorus]
Should've known I gotta get this off my chest
I'm allowed to keep around this empty nest
It's so much to clean up a clever mess
Should've known, should've known

[Verse 3]
Did you notice, did you notice our friends are running scared?
And seem so unprepared?
How'd we get here? How'd we get here? Did we get here on our own?
Have we always been alone?

[Refrain]
I wanna hear you when you speak
I have no need to critique
I wanna keep this winning streak
I have no breath underneath

[Bridge]
Sit in a room right next to you
And now I wanna leave
Sit in a room right next to you
And now I wanna leave
[Chorus]
Should've known I gotta get this off my chest
I'm allowed to keep around this empty nest
It's so much to clean up a clever mess
Should've known, should've known

[Verse 4]
Did you notice, did you notice I'm feeling uninspired?
I think I'm crossing wires
How'd we get here? How'd we get here? Did we get here on our own?
The seeds are overgrown

[Refrain]
I wanna see this to the end
I have no need to pretend

[Chorus]
Should've known I gotta get this off my chest
I'm allowed to keep around this empty nest
It's so much to clean up a clever mess
Should've known, should've known

[Outro]
Sit in a room right next to you
And now I wanna leave
Sit in a room right next to you
And now I wanna leave
Sit in a room right next to you
And now I wanna leave
Sit in a room right next to you
And now I wanna leave
Sit in a room right next to you
And now I wanna leave
