Metabolism – The Strokes

I want to be outrageous
But inside I know I’m plain
So plain, just plain
Always, in pain?

Silently obsessed with it
Just like anyone I guess
Tryin’ for the perfect life
End up bein’ in denial

I wanna be somebody
Wanna be somebody like you
Like you, like you, like you
Like you, instead of me

Silently obsessed with it
Just like anyone I guess
Tryin’ for the perfect life
End up bein’ in denial

Two Kinds Of Happiness – The Strokes

Happiness is two different things
What you take and then what you bring
One is pleasure, one is the flame
One’s devotion, one’s just deranged

Inside everyone
Love conquers alter-joy

Don’t waste your heart
Don’t waste your heart
One has nothing to do with the other

One to take it from with my love
One’s an instinct, one takes some will
One you laugh and one makes you kill
What’s lovely is that one’s for the end

Inside everyone
Love conquers alter-joy

Don’t waste your heart
Don’t waste your heart
One has nothing to do with the other

Don’t you give in

When It Started – The Strokes

Won’t decide, but he won’t debate
Said, “Thanks my friend,” but he was too late
Oh why, oh why
I don’t know

So you think things move pretty fast down here
Well just wait my dear ’till you look up there
Oh maybe someday you’ll know

Had his second kid, was an early night
Got to be well dressed ’cause he hates to fly
Oh loves his job, takes it home

Anything they wanted
They could have it, have it
Didn’t even notice
I don’t mind it, mind it

Won’t decide, but he won’t debate
Said, “Thanks my friend, thought that we was dead”
Oh why, oh why
I don’t know

Think things move pretty fast down here
But just wait my dear ’till we get up there
Oh maybe someday they’ll know

Come on tell me does she warm the room
When he comes
Or does he just know how to leave
When it gets cold

Well I don’t care, I don’t care
‘Cause it’s free

Trying Your Luck – The Strokes

You said you couldn’t stay
You’ve seen it all before
I know

They sold you on their way
Oh, honey, that’s OK

No harm, he’s armed
Setting off all your alarms
When I find out
I hope it’s you who set this trap

And storefronts rarely changed
At least I’m on my own again
Instead of anywhere with you

But, to me, it’s all the same

And I lost my page. Again
I know this is surreal
But, I’ll try my luck with you
This life is on my side
Well, I am your one?
“Believe me, this is a chance,” oh oh

Let’s see what’s for sale
He’s trying hard to give his job a chance
Oh, it’s never gonna be
It’s sad, but I agree
The signals don’t seem right
They last for just one night, and then
I’m sorry that I said:
“That we were just good friends”

No harm, he’s armed
Setting off all your alarms
They’re trapped
I can’t be there in time
I’ll think about that

And I lost my page again
I know this is surreal
But, I’ll try my luck with you
This life is on my side
Well, I am your one?
“Believe me, this is a chance,” oh oh
