Transcript:

CONAN: Please welcome Okkervil River!
Okkervil River: You sit in the center of your hometown and there's leaves in the streets and presents around Check it out In love and in life All the way it seemed like '89 But not even close to our eyes Down the road Down, down the road They seemed like a very bad mess Where we wanna keep away from them It was not long ago we saw the place to go Tell me about the greatest show or the greatest movie in the world Or the greatest star off the radio We're always going to be your best friend you said at one time You say it again all wait down the line Not even delose all right Down a hall in your house Down a road in December Down, down, down deep river, down, down, down the deep river I need a rescue party the worse thing they've seen and standing all around the tree And I'm so sorry that I can't stop crying Oh, I know They told you about the summer sky Maybe they said there's a great cold spirit in the southern sky Or they said all your friends, all your best, best friends are going to gather around your bed at night We'll that don't make it all right because it's still so far from all right down a hall in your house Down a road in December Down, down the deep river Up the stairs four flights Can you feel my heart shiver Down, down the deep river Walking in the dawn with that dream getting dimmer and dimmer Down the river And we can't go back down the deep river Are we going down, down, down, down the deep river Down the deep river.
