The Police And The Private

Lyrics

Get straight, wait here while I try to find the exit sign
When we stop asking strangers, no one wants what we want
Keep one eye on the door, keep one eye on the bag
Never expect to be sure

Love it just wish I knew what exactly was the message here
Fox theater next week, metric show will be sickness!!
Cool.
really enjoying this
This is absolutely amazing. The lyrics blow me away.
Does metric have one bad song??? Love this band!
I like this song, I just wish I knew what it was about.
I get the Jenny Lewis reference, especially if you listen to Emily Haines' solo stuff, but they come from different areas, and you can hear the disparate influences in both of their bands. This song really is wonderful and is what attracted me to Metric.
So wonderful
like ittttttttttt lots:)
This also reminds me of Rilo Kiley. Doesn't it sounds a bit like Jenny Lewis?
like it
Cute song, great lyrics.
