Vampire Weekend - Ya Hey lyrics

Oh, sweet thing
Zion doesn't love you
And Babylon don't love you
But you love everything

Oh, you saint
America don't love you
So I could never love you
In spite of everything

In the dark of this place there's the glow of your face
There's the dust on the screen of this broken machine
And I can't help but feel that I made some mistake
But I let it go, ya hey, ya hey, ya hey

Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name

Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Only "I am that I am"
But who could ever live that way?
Ut deo, ya hey
Ut deo, deo

Oh
The Motherland don't love you
The Fatherland don't love you
So why love anything?

Oh, good God
The faithless, they don't love you
The zealous hearts don't love you
And that's not gonna change

All the cameras and files, all the paranoid style
All the tension and fear of a secret career
And I can't help but feel that you see the mistakes
But you let it go, ya hey, ya hey, ya hey

Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name

Through the heart and through the flames
You won't even say your name
You say, "I am that I am"
But who could ever live that way?
Ut deo, ya hey
Ut deo, deo

Outside the tents
On the festival grounds
As the air began to cool
And the sun went down

My soul swooned
As I faintly heard the sound
Of you spinning "Israelites"
Into "19th Nervous Breakdown"

Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name

Through the fire, through the flames
You won't even say your name
Only "I am what I am"
But who could ever live that way?
Ut deo, ya hey
Ut deo, deo

Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Only "I am that I am"
But who could ever live that way?
Ut deo, ya hey
Ut deo, deo
