Lay down in the doorway
In front of me
Make yourself impossible
From Italy

I remember a kid in the water
I remember a world on fire
I was just coming out of it
It was so hot all summer

I get so far, so fast
I get so far, so fast

A storm that blackens
The quiet sea
You went running right into it
Away from me

We have friends in good houses
We have kids in the trees
How I have nothing but sleepless nights
About everything?

I get so far, so fast
I get so far, so fast

Don't you know someday somebody will come and find you?
If you don't know who you are anymore, they will remind you
We don't see you around here anymore, it's okay
But I will say your name out loud
And you will be home

There are so many things that drive me crazy
What you think I am, it's never been me

Hearing your voice always saves me
Can you get away and talk to me?

So Far, So Fast Lyrics

The National – So Far, So Fast Lyrics

Lay down in the doorway
In front of me
Make yourself impossible
From Italy

I remember a kid in the water
I remember a world on fire
I was just coming out of it
It was so hot all summer

I get so far, so fast
I get so far, so fast

A storm that blackens
The quiet sea
You went running right into it
Away from me

We have friends in good houses
We have kids in the trees
How I have nothing but sleepless nights
About everything?

I get so far, so fast
I get so far, so fast

Don't you know someday somebody will come and find you?
If you don't know who you are anymore, they will remind you
We don't see you around here anymore, it's okay
But I will say your name out loud
And you will be home

There are so many things that drive me crazy
What you think I am, it's never been me

Hearing your voice always saves me
Can you get away and talk to me?
