Alphabet City Lyrics The National

[Verse 1]
I don't miss the world, not the way it was
I can't get there
Try to think of it, always at a loss
I can't get there

[Pre-Chorus]
All of your lonesomeness kept in your wallet
Nobody notices, baby, you got this

[Chorus]
I'll still be here when you come back from space
I will listen for you at the door

[Verse 2]
Take forever off anytime you want
I'll save your place
If anybody asks, I'll say you're coming back
We'll just have to wait

[Chorus]
Sometimes I wanna drive around and find you
And act like it's a random thing
I always wonder if you ever feel
Like I blew all chances of this happening

[Verse 3]
I'm not over it, don't know what it is
I can't get there
Something's wrong with me like it always is
I can't get there

[Pre-Chorus]
All of your lonesomeness kept in your wallet
Nobody notices, baby, you got this
Everything's orchestrated, follow the arrows
Let's meet where we used to in Alphabet City

[Chorus]
I'll still be here when you come back from space
I will listen for you at the door
Sometimes I barely recognize this place
When you're with me, I don't miss the world
