"Every time I see you in the world you always step to my girl"


I am so very much in love with the new song "Step" from Vampire Weekend's new album, Modern Vampires of the City.

The lyrics are brilliant, and playful, and silly.....

***

Ancestors told me that their girl was better
she's richer than croesus, she's tougher than leather
I just ignored all the tales of a past life
stale conversation deserves but a bread knife

***

wisdom's a gift but you trade it for youth
age is an honor - it's still not the truth
we saw the stars when they hid from the world
you cursed the sun when it stepped to your girl.

maybe she's gone and I can't resurrect her
the truth is she doesn't need me to protect her
we know the true death - the true way of all flesh
everyone's dying but girl - you're not old yet

***

The gloves are off, the wisdom teeth are out
what you on about?
I feel it in my bones, I feel it in my bones
I'm stronger now, I'm ready for the house
such a modest mouse
I can't do it alone, I can't do it alone.

Every time I see you in the world
you always step to my girl.


Here's the video, have a little looksee:
