Death Cab’s “I Will Possess Your Heart” was their first single off of their sixth studio album album Narrow Stairs.  The song was nominated for Best Rock Song at the 2009 Grammy Awards but lost to Bruce Springsteen’s “Girls i Their Summer Clothes”.  In 2008 it was named the iTunes UK song of the year and the music video won the 2008 MTV Video Music Award for Best Editing. 

I Will Possess Your Heart

How I wish you could see the potential,
The potential of you and me,
Its like a book, elegantly bound but,
In a language that you cant read (just yet).

You gotta spend some time, love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you’ll find love.
I will possess your heart.

There are days when outside your window,
I see my reflection as I slowly pass.
And I long for this mirrorred perspective,
When we’ll be lovers, lovers at last.

You gotta spend some time, love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you’ll find love.
I will possess your heart.

I will possess your heart.
I will possess your heart.

You reject my advances and desperate pleas.
I won’t let you let me down so easily, so easily.

You gotta spend some time, love.
You gotta spend some time with me.
And I know that you’ll find love.
I will possess your heart.
