    LYRICS

    As I walk through the streets of my new city
    my back feeling much better, I suppose
    I've reclaimed the use of my imagination
    for better or for worse, I've yet to know
    but I always knew you'd be the one to understand me,
    I guess that's why it took so long to get things right.
    Suddenly I'm lost
    On my street
    On my block

    Oh why, Oh why
    Oh why haven't you been there for me?
    Can't you see, I'm losing my mind this time?
    This time it's for real, I can see

    The tops of trees are turning red
    The beggars near bodegas grin at me
    I think they want something
    I close my eyes, I tell myself to breathe

    and be calm.
    Be calm.
    I know you feel like you are breaking down.
    I know that it gets so hard sometimes.
    Be calm.

    I'm scared that everyone is out to get me.
    "These days before you speak to me you pause."
    "I always see you looking out your window."
    "After all, you lost your band, you left your mom."
    Now every single crack, every penny that I pass,
    says I should either leave or pick it up
    But with every single buck I've made
    I'm saddled with bad luck that came

    the moment I was baptized
    or when I found out one day I'm gonna die
    if only I could find my people or my place in life
    and when they come a'carolin'
    so loud, so bright, the theremin
    will lead us to a chorus
    where we'll all rejoice and sing a song that goes:

    Oh be calm.
    Be calm.
    I know you feel like you are breaking down.
    I know that it gets so hard sometimes,
    Be calm.
    Take it from me, I've been there a thousand times.
    You hate your pulse because it thinks you're still alive
    and everything's wrong
    It just gets so hard sometimes
    Be calm.

    I don't remember much that night,
    Just walking, thinking fondly of you
    Thinking how the worst is yet to come
    When from that street corner came a song
    And I can't remember the man,
    The panhandler or his melody.
    The words exchanged had far exceeded any change I'd given thee.

    FUN. stopped making music, and that's a shame. their music still helps people, or at least me. they shine light into my life. they're like a dead star whose light can still be seen in the night sky. I hope they'll continue making these masterpieces some day, and be this living star again.

    I love rading all these comments that say this song helps them through their anxiety- it helped me as well, when I had severe anxiety in eleventh grade. I just love that so many people realize that a song that sounds like it's falling apart is purely cathartic. Such an amazing feeling, such an amazing song.

    Until now, I thought that Fun. was just a little above-average pop band with some songs good and some kinda meh. But this song definitely made me a fan.
