The National Fan Tumblr
on my feet i stand tonight, stand and step up to the light
an extraordinary man unbroken in the breaking light
forever after days, stand and make myself a crown
to the table i step alone, hold my own above the ground
take my shot under the light, heroes come a common way
One of the lyrics that puzzled The National listeners was the chanting lyric at the end of Secret Meeting. Here are some of the speculations about what the line might be, on The National Forum
-Dont draw an ace and fold it
-Paul is dead
-stop talking, its important
- I’m talking, its important
- throw the dice
- chalk and ice and fall down.
- I’ve got a tape recording
- Don’t tuck an ace and fold it
- Italian Ice Importer
- It’s Topher Grace, ain’t it?
The Full line is “I’m talkin’ ace this morning”
What were your guesses?
(ok, I had time on my hands..random quotes from The National-yes, I’m obsessed lately)
Now I’m stuck in New York and the rains coming down, still in line for the Vanity Fair.
Since I’ve been listening to the National pretty much 24/7 lately I noticed that they keep telling me to put something somewhere. So I decided to put them all together…which makes me obsessive/weird/a loser (hey you forgot to put “cool” on that list…no I didn’t)
I wanna hurry home to you, …
Sometimes I have to remind myself of these things during the workday.
