Parquet Courts – Black Widow Spider Lyrics

Parquet Courts Black Widow Spider Lyrics

I’m trying to forget about someone I love
I’m trying to leave the person behind
I’m trying not to think about someone dear
But trying don’t work sometimes

I’m trying not to picture a face I saw
A face that has been burned in my mind
I’m trying not to think of seeing it again
Was that the final time?

I’m trying to save up money for something I want
Something I hope will give peace of mind
But peace comes in pieces of pea-sized bits
Will I get enough in time?

I go out to a movie in the city, man
I can’t seem to shake off a mood
I like to watch an actor and act like them
Pretend I’m a different dude

Eyes on my every move, black widow spider
Climb, climb, climb into me, black widow spider

I never wanted nothing from no one or
I never ask for anything more
God is gladder to be suffered and never talk
The way I did before

I’m trying to forget about someone I love
I’m trying to leave the person behind
I’m trying not to think about someone dear
But trying don’t work sometimes

Always fine company, black widow spider
Climb, climb, climb into me, black widow spider
