I Should Live in Salt Lyrics

by The National

Don't make me read your mind
You should know me better than that
It takes me too much time
You should know me better than that

You're not that much like me
You should know me better than that
We have different enemies
You should know me better than that

I should leave it alone, but you're not right
I should leave it alone, but you're not right

Can't you write it on the wall
You should know me better than that
There's no room to write it all
You should know me better than that

Can you turn the TV down
You should know me better than that
There's too much crying in the sound
I should know you better than that

I should leave it alone, but you're not right
I should leave it alone, but you're not right

I should live in salt for leaving you behind, behind

Think about something so much
You should know me better than that
Start to slide out of touch
You should know me better than that

Tell yourself that someone knows
You should know me better than that
Learn to appreciate the void
You should know me better than that

I should live in salt for leaving you behind, behind
I should live in salt for leaving you behind, behind
