Vampire Weekend - Sympathy Lyrics


I think I took myself too serious. It’s not that serious.

Alone in someone’s bedroom
She firmly took my hand
The isolation ended
I began to understand

In the ping-pong match of constant desire
I was never gonna get ahead
‘Cause I was looking in the mirror

Now we’ve got that sympathy
What I’m to you, you are to me
Let’s go

Judeo-Christianity
I’d never heard the words
Enemies for centuries
Until there was a third

In the ping-pong match of constant desire
I was never gonna get ahead
‘Cause I was looking in the mirror

Now we’ve got that sympathy
What I’m to you, you are to me
Let’s go

Diego Garcia
Surrounded by the waves
Lonely in the ocean
But in every other way
It was full of love
And the warmest fellow-feeling

Now we’ve got that sympathy
What I’m to you, you are to me
Let’s go

I didn’t have your sympathy
But I knew where to start
Explaining to you patiently
That the one who broke my heart
Would have broken yours
And thrown the pieces in the river

Now we’ve got that sympathy
What I’m to you, you are to me
Let’s go

Let’s go
Let’s go

Let’s go

Desperate for an enemy
But too afraid to kill
Use the pain of someone else
And triumph for their will
And spill the blood of the arrogant mosquitoes

Now we’ve got that sympathy
What I’m to you, you are to me
Let’s go
