Unbearably White - Vampire Weekend

Unbearably White Vampire Weekend - Lyrics

Written By : Ezra Koenig

[Verse 1]
Baby, I love you
But that is not enough
Pulling away is being unbearably white
I ran up the mountain
Out of your sight
The snow on the peak was just unbearably white

The city was freezing
An elegant flow
The wind at the doorway was unbearably cold
You walked through the bedroom
And sat down all right
The page of your notebook was unbearably white

[Chorus]
There's an avalanche coming
Don't cover your eyes
It's what you thought that you wanted
It's still a surprise
It's hard on the body
It's hard on the mind
To learn what kept us together, darling
Is what kept us alive

[Verse 2]
Sooner or later
The story gets told
To tell it myself would be unbearably bold
Present it with darkness
Return to the light
Could've been smart but just unbearably bright

[Chorus]
There's an avalanche coming
Don't cover your eyes
It's what you thought that you wanted
It's still a surprise
It's hard on the body
It's hard on the mind
To learn what kept us together, darling
Is what kept us alive

[Bridge]
Call it a day
Call it a night
Careless and cold
And just unbearably white

Call it a day
Call it a night
Careless and cold
And just unbearably white

Call it a day
Call it a night
Careless and cold
And just unbearably white

[Verse 3]
Baby, I love you
But that is not enough
And pulling away is being unbearably white
I ran up the mountain
Out of your sight
The snow on the peak was just unbearably white

[Outro]
Call it a day
Call it a night
Careless and cold
And just unbearably white
