Fake Empire

Lyrics: The National
Music: The National

Played by Bob Weir in the Bridge Sessions with members of The National at TRI Studios in 2012.

Stay out super late tonight
Picking apples, making pies
Put a little something in our lemonade and take it with us
Were half-awake in a fake empire
Were half-awake in a fake empire

Tiptoe through our shiny city
With our diamond slippers on
Do our gay ballet on ice
Bluebirds on our shoulders
Were half-awake in a fake empire
Were half-awake in a fake empire

Turn the light out say goodnight
No thinking for a little while
Let's not try to figure out everything at once
Its hard to keep track of you falling through the sky
Were half-awake in a fake empire
Were half-awake in a fake empire
