Passion Pit - Take A Walk Lyrics

All these kinds of places
Make it seem like it’s been ages
And tomorrow’s sun and buildings scrape the sky.
I love this country dearly
I can feel the latter 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.
Got off the boat, they stayed a while
then scattered ‘cross the coast.
Once I’ll year I’ll see them for a week or so at most.
I took a walk
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
Ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh
I took a walk
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
Ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh
Practice isn’t perfect
but the market cuts a 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.
What’s my mother lacking
Just to stay a couple nights
And decided she would stay the rest of her life.
And 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
He made some bad investments, now the accounts are overdrawn
I took a walk.
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
Ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh
I took a walk
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
Ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh
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.
But tomorrow , you’ll cook dinner for the neighbors and their kids.
We can rip apart the socialists and all their damn taxes.
You’ll 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 took a walk.
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
Ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh
I took a walk
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
Ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh
I took a walk
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
Ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh
I took a walk
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
(take a walk, take a walk, take a walk)
Ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh-ohh
