*Please turn on annotations! Lyrics fixed*

To comments correcting the mistakes in the video: calm down lol
I fixed them in the description and with annotations a little after I posted the video which was 4 years ago. Sorry if you can't see the corrections if you're on your phone or tablet.

Also, when I first found the song, there were 2 sites with these lyrics on them and I just posted what I saw.
Of Monsters & Men's new album, My Head is an Animal, will be released April 3rd! You can pre-order here:
Hey! Hey! Hey!

I don't like walking around this old and empty house
So hold my hand I'll walk with you my dear
The stairs creak as you sleep it's keeping me awake
It's the house telling you to close your eyes

And some days I can't even dress myself
It's killing me to see you this way
'Cause though the truth may vary this ship will carry
our bodies safe to shore

Hey! Hey! Hey!

There's an old voice in my head that's holding me back
Well tell her that I miss our little talks
Soon it will be over and buried with our past
We used to play outside when we were young and full of life and full of love

Some days I don't know if I am wrong or right
Your mind is playing tricks on you my dear
'Cause though the truth may vary this ship will carry
our bodies safe to shore

Don't listen to a word I say
The screams all sound the same
Though the truth may vary this ship will carry our bodies safe to shore

You're gone, gone, gone away I watched you disappear
All that's left is a ghost of you
Now we're torn, torn, torn apart there's nothing we can do
Just let me go we'll meet again soon
No wait! Wait! Wait for me!
Please hang around, I'll see you when I fall asleep

Don't listen to a word I say
The screams all sound the same
Though the truth may vary this ship will carry
our bodies safe to shore
