thirty-eight: “new country” by the walkmen.

brooklyn. october 2010.

I had somehow forgotten about this song. I guess that’s why the ‘shuffle’ option on an iPod is sometimes necessary.

The news is all good
And I’m flying higher
I’m back on my own
Don’t worry about me
I got no more baggage
I threw all my old things away
I got your letter
Thanks for the offer
I really don’t need a thing
Open the door in front of me

The sun is now shining down on me
Meet me as soon as you can
Bring me the money you owe for me
I’m taking my head out of the sand

Oh, maybe I’ll go see the world
There’s plenty of places to see
Voices I never have heard
Look at the way it ought to be

Oh, I’m all alone
Oh, I’m all alone
I know you’re still listening to me
Isn’t a lot as far as I see

    Love this song! Love the sentiment, love the atmosphere, love how I am able to relate it to my life. Can’t wait for The Walkmen’s new album!
