The Strokes

Soma is what they would take when hard times opened their eyes

Saw pain in a new way

High stakes for a few names

Racing with the sunbeams

Loosing against their dreams

In our eyes

I am


And go

In your eyes,

Said I am


And go

In your eyes

Let's go

When I saw her for the first time

Lips moved as her eyes closed

Heard something in his voice

"And I'll be there" he says

And he walks out

Somehow he was trying too hard

To be like them

I am


And go

In your eyes

And I am


Oh darling let me go

Try it once and they liked it

(They) Try to hide it

Said I've been doing this twenty five years

Well I'm not listening no more

And his friends they keep asking for more

Oh yeah

Oh but that's it
