Yeasayer Lyrics


"Let Me Listen In On You"

They’re slipping through the holes again
Those fire ants, they bite
And they don’t make love like we used to
We don’t read by candlelight

And I’ll watch out for you my friend
If you keep an eye on my place while I’m out of town
And memorize this handshake
So I’ll know you need to be put down

I’d like to help you but my hands are tied
Don’t look so nervous you’ve got nothing to hide

I can make your dreams come true
If you let me listen in on you
Let me listen in on you

Digging through the bottles and the cans alone
I didn’t mean to slice my fingers to the bone
I’m kind of high from your lullaby
I won’t admit the reason why

I’d like to help you but my hands are tied
Don’t look so nervous you’ve got nothing to hide

I can make your dreams come true
If you let me listen in on you
I can make your dreams come true
If you let me listen in on you
Let me listen in on you

Have you seen the big guns in the bay?
The evil that men do in picture books we call them brave
Do you need a translator to get you through your day?
They’re primed and ready to come out of their caves

Do you need a translator
Do you need a translator
Do you need a translator
Do you need a translator

I’d like to help you but my hands are tied
Don’t look so guilty, you’ve got nothing to hide

I can make your dreams come true
If you let me listen in on you
I can make your dreams come true
If you let me listen in on you
Let me listen in on you
