Get dressed in your bed
While she's asleep
It isn’t right
But it isn’t hard
This song is about the struggles that come with growing up and settling down. The Strokes' frontman Julian Casablancas is up and out the door before his wife is awake. Perhaps he’s heading to the studio making music or just hanging out with his buds.
Either way, Casablancas doesn’t feel like his action’s are “right.” Perhaps he should wake up and have breakfast with his wife like normal married couples do. But as he says, it “isn’t hard” for him to fall into his old, irresponsible habits.
