In Her Prime

The Strokes

Well I live this life and I was just seventeen

This house was built on mamas broken dreams

And then it took me by surprise

When she looked me in the eye


And I arrest these teachers

For what they have read

And give all your money to the living dead

Like a call girl in her prime

Arriving just in time


And I am a sentimental man

I try to reach to God with just one hand

Rejecting offers to be with you

All that does is to

Keep you by your side

A new way to wave goodbye

And I'm waiting

I'm not waiting!!

And I'm redefining what they could not deceive

Upon their big arrival and then she don't think

Take them off to war,

If you wanna ask me for some more

I'm taking your days

In her prime

Just in time
