Soma is the third song of the 1st album of The Strokes: Is This It.


Soma is what they would take when, hard times opened their eyes

Saw pain in a new way

High stakes for a few names

Racing against sunbeams

Losing against fig trees

In your eyes, I am

Stop, and go

In your eyes, I am

Stop, and go

In your eyes

Lets go

When I saw her for the first time lips moved as her eyes closed

Heard something in his voice

"And i'll be there," he says and he walks out

Somehow he was trying too hard to be like them

And I am

Stop, and go

In your eyes, and I am

Stop, oh darling let me go

Try it once and they liked it, and tried to hide it

Says I've been doing this twenty-five years

Well I'm not listening no more

And these friends they keep asking for more

Oh yeah

Oh but thats it
