Take a Walk (Album Version) Lyrics

Take A Walk (散步) (Album Version) - Passion Pit

All these kinds of places

Make it seem like it's been ages

Tomorrow some new building

Will scrape the sky

 

I love this country dearly

I can feel the ladder clearly

But I never thought

I'd be alone to try

 

Once I was outside Penn Station

Selling red and white carnations

We were still alone my wife and I

 

Before we married saved my money

Brought my dear wife over

Now I work to bring

My family stateside

 

But off the boat they stayed

A while then scattered

Across the coast

 

Once a year I'll see them

For a week or so at most

I take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

Take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

Take a walk

I take a walk

Take a walk take a walk

 

Take a walk

Take a walk

 

Practice isn't perfect

But the market cuts the loss

I remind myself that times

Could be much worse

 

My wife won't ask me questions

There's not so much to ask

And she'll never flaunt

Around an empty purse

 

Once my mother-in-law came

Just to stay a couple nights

Then decided she would stay

The rest of her life

 

I watch my little children

Play some board game

In the kitchen

And I sit and pray

They never feel my strife

 

But then my partner called to say

The pension funds were gone

We made some bad investments

Now the accounts are overdrawn

I take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

Take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

Take a walk

Take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

 

Honey it's your son

I think I borrowed just too much

We had taxes we had bills

We had a lifestyle to front

And tonight I swear

I'll come home

And we'll make love

Like we're young

 

And tomorrow you'll cook dinner

For the neighbors and their kids

We can rip apart those Socialists

And all their damn taxes

But see I am no criminal

I'm down on both bad knees

 

I'm just too much a coward to admit

When I'm in need

I take a walk

Take a walk take a walk

 

Take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

 

Take a walk

Take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

Take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

Take a walk

 

Take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

 

Take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

Take a walk

I take a walk

Take a walk take a walk

 

Take a walk

 

Take a walk take a walk

 

Take a walk
