Outer South - Conor Oberst lyrics

I Got The Reason, No. 2
Conor Oberst Song Lyrics

Artist: Conor Oberst
Album: Outer South (2009)


You know a lot can happen after everybody falls asleep
Ask the forest fire, ask the cop walking on the beat
And do right by them, work a little in your dreams
Don't let time rob you, hold onto your memories.

In the glass houses, in the pages of the rolling stone
I get a sick feeling, like I'm rocking in a little boat
I hear the big church bell, it's ringing like a mobile phone
It's such a long sunday drive to be taking it all alone.

I want to belong to a reason
And cut a new key to the kingdom.

And if anybody asks me, say I want to belong
If anybody asks me, say that it won't take long now
If anybody asks me, say I'm going to get it done
If anybody asks me, say I got a reason, oh...

In the vast hard drive, in the satellites that kick and spin
They keep the old footage so everything can live again
Pretty pink roses, the ostrich and the elephant
It's the last noah's ark, so everything's got to fit.

In the creased pages of a letter I been trying to send
To a young widow who is desperate for some kind of friend
You'll find a long list of eligible, handsome men
Who want to lay with her upon the table of the elements.

They're going to hold strong to a reason
And cut a new key to the kingdom.

And if anybody asks 'em, say they're going to belong
And if anybody asks 'em, say that it won't take long now
And if anybody asks 'em, say man I'm trying to get it done
And if anybody asks 'em, say they've got a reason, oh...
