Punch Brothers Don’t Get Married Without Me

You’re right we’re wrong for now

Just bailing water while the ship goes down

When we could float away

On separate rafts to die another day

But it’s more than time apart my love

It’s time to handle this without kid gloves

Ripping the Band-Aid off

May not be pretty least the bleeding’s stopped

I think

Let’s not fool ourselves

Taking a break is dragging out a breakup too long

Help yourself to whatever you like with whomever you like

But don’t get married without me

We lost the battle won

That doesn’t mean we can’t have any fun

This war’s not over yet

We called a truce no need to get upset

I know you know I still love you

Anyone else is a lateral move at best

And who says I’ll be able to move at all

‘Til I cozy back up to you this fall

But still

Let’s not fool ourselves

Taking a break is dragging out a breakup too long

Help yourself to whatever you like with whomever you like

But don’t get married without me

Let’s not fool ourselves

‘Cause we aren’t cowards

We aren’t liars

We’re just two people who are not in love

Right now

Let’s not fool ourselves

Taking a break is dragging out a breakup too long

Help yourself to whatever you like with whomever you like

But don’t get married without me

Punch Brothers It’ll Happen

It’ll happen

It’s gonna happen babe

But it hasn’t happened yet

I’m not gonna let you get

ahead of yourself

It’s your Achilles heel

Though I want it as bad as you

We’ve gotta try to see it through

Our own excitement

Your excitement babe

Hasn’t let that happen yet

and it won’t if you forget

what happened last time

Punch Brothers Who’s Feeling Young Now?

I wasn’t tired

I’m never tired

Youth will not be wasted on this one

In a dark room

Another dark room

She said hey you’re gonna like this

It’s easy to like by candlelight if not under the sun

Who’s feeling young now?

Dark room to doorway

Doorway to sidewalk

Youth will not be wasted on this one

In a thick fog

Another thick fog

I said hey this isn’t like me

It’s a little like there could be something new under the sun

Who’s feeling young now?

They try to tell us and at times we try to listen

But we can’t hear a thing when all we think about are all the things we think we might be missing

‘Cause if we think we are we are

And if we don’t we aren’t worth the time it takes to think of making love with who we’re kissing

They tried to tell us and at times we tried to listen

No!

She wasn’t perfect

Nobody’s perfect

Gray hair ain’t a crown of wisdom

When you’re a young man

‘Til you’re an old man

She says hey you look a lot like

Someone I liked who flew just far enough under the sun to never come down

Who’s feeling young

They try to tell us and at times we try to listen

But we can’t hear a thing when all we think about are all the things we think we might be missing

‘Cause if we think we are we are

And if we don’t we aren’t worth the time it takes to think of making love with who we’re kissing

They tried to tell us and at times we tried to listen

Punch Brothers Clara

Someday don’t wake up I want you to get some rest

Someday if she’s hungry I’ll bring her to you

Clara once upon a time your mother didn’t love your father the best

But he made believe that she did one day it was true

Go back to sleep my daughter

Go back to sleep my wife

I’m waiting for you there

Someday I wake up and she’s still a song to play

Someday but you’re ready to hear it’s for you

Clara once upon a time your father knew he’d scare your mother away

Singing lovers live in a dream that keeps coming true

Go back to sleep my daughter

Go back to sleep my wife

I’m waiting for you there

It’s gonna be a long night

It’s gonna be a long night

And the sun may never shine

On what I think I’ve seen in your eyes

On what I think I’ve seen in your eyes

‘Cause your eyes are not a window

Your eyes are not a window

Your eyes are not a window

They’re a one way mirror to my soul

Someday don’t wake up I want you to get some rest

Punch Brothers No Concern Of Yours

Well it’s no concern of yours my friend it’s no concern of yours

The nail that’s sticking up will just get hammered to the board

And it’s no concern of yours my friend it’s no concern of yours

It’s hard to hold your head up when it’s in your hands

To wash off last night’s trouble in a clean white shirt

If anyone can do it I can

And it’s no concern of yours my friend it’s no concern of yours

The finest looking apple can be rotten to the core

And it’s no concern of yours my friend it’s no concern of yours

We’re not here to talk about me

We’re here to get things done

‘Cause if we do my daddy won’t have ruined both his sons

He’s going down

It’s no concern of yours my friend it’s no concern of yours

A word can break as easy as it’s spoken snarled or sworn

And it’s no concern of yours my friend it’s no concern of yours

When your name is on this building take me out for lunch

After three or four Old Fashioneds tell me what you’ve heard

Then you’d better listen closely I’ll only say it once

Punch Brothers Clementine

They’re waking you up to close the bar

The street’s wet you can tell by the sound of the cars

The bartender’s singing Clementine

As he’s turning around the open sign

Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Though you’re still her man

It seems a long time gone

Maybe the whole thing’s wrong

What if she thinks so

But just didn’t say so

You drank yourself into a slow-mo

And made an angel in the snow

Anything to pass the time

And keep that song out of your mind

Oh my darling, oh my darling, oh my darling

Clementine

Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Dreadful sorry, Clementine

Punch Brothers Magnet

I pinned her to the wall and said

I wanna take you home

I wanna take you home, think about it

She threw me to the floor and said

I wanna take you home

I wanna take you home, think about it

What’s the center between two centers of attention?

Is there a center between two centers of attention?

All our attention between two centers of attention and then there’s

Cause I’m a magnet

And you’re a magnet

And we’re pushing each other away

We’re pushing each other away

We’re pushing each other away

Baby I’m a blank cheque

And you’re a blank cheque

To whose order we going to pay?

To whose order we going to pay?

To whose order we going to pay?

I laughed away to tears and said what if you took me now

What if you took me here, think about it

She locked the hallway door and said

You gonna take me now

You gonna take me here, don’t think about it

But I’ve thought about it

What’s the center between two centers of attention?

Is center of attention is some center of attention?

All our attention between two centers of attention and then there’s

Oh yes

Cause I’m a magnet

And you’re a magnet

And we’re pushing each other away

We’re pushing each other away

We’re pushing each other away

Oh baby I’m a blank cheque

And you’re a blank cheque

Our very own order to pay

Our very own order to pay

Our very own order to pay

Cause we’re pushing each other away

We’re pushing each other away

We’re pushing each other away

We’re pushing each other away

Cause we’re pushing each other away

We’re pushing each other away

Baby I’m a magnet

Punch Brothers Packt Like Sardines In A Crush’d Tin Box

After years of waiting nothing came

As your life flashed before your eyes

You realize

I’m a reasonable man

Get off, get off, get off my case

I’m a reasonable man

Get off my case

Get off my case

After years of waiting

After years of waiting nothing came

And you realize you’re looking,

Looking in the wrong place

Get off my case

Get off my case

Get off my case

Punch Brothers Familiarity

It’s on

Again you hate it but you know it then

You know it and so do your friends

And you can sing together when

It’s on

Pretend you love it because you love them

As you explode out of your phones (amen)

to make some music of your own (amen)

You can hate it softly to yourself alone

A man among amens

A ringing bell, or programmed drums or both

I couldn’t tell but I rejoice

A smoke machine or a swinging thurible

it was hard to see but I lifted up my voice

We’ve come together over we know not what…

A call to prayer, or the last for alcohol

we didn’t care; We knelt and bowed our heads

Or did we dance?

Like we may never get another chance to disconnect

We’ve come together

Over we know not what to say I love you

I love you, I love you

I mean it, I want to feel it

God help me feel it

I love you

God knows I mean it

God help me feel it

God knows we mean it

God help us feel it…

We lie in bed

The wireless dancing through my head

Until I fear the space between my breaths

I see an end to where I don’t love you like I can

Cause I’ve forgotten how it feels (amen)

To love someone or thing for real (amen)

So darling when you wake, remind me what we’ve done

That can’t be shared, or saved, or even sung

It’s on

Again you nod your head and take my hand

Though I’m not sure where we’ll go (amen)

To worship more than what we know (amen)

As long as you’re there I won’t be alone

A man among amens
