Tegan And Sara

Intervention (feat Margaret Cho)

Play

It's not your birthday
But all your friends and family are here
What's the occasion?
'Cause the motive seem unclear
Some are happy, some are shedding lots of tears
They're saying now
What they should have said for years
We're doing this 'cause
We're concerned about your health
We're doing this to, save you from yourself

Welcome, to your intervention
We need some of your attention
You've got a problem we must mention
We're not gonna put you in detention
But we think you need, think you need
An intervention

We know all of the paramedics on a first name basis
Don't you see how bloated
Your pretty face is
Time forgives, time erases
Time will catch what the dragon chases
We will mend what we lost to the meth
And we're sick of loving you to death

Welcome, to your intervention
We need some of your attention
You've got a problem we must mention
We're not gonna put you in detention
But we think you need, think you need
An intervention

Tegan: (clears throat)
Margaret, S-Sara, Sara, Sara, Sara and I
Wanted to um write, write this letter
And we wanted to write this letter to you, to you
Because well we,
We wanted to make sure we said everything.

Margaret:
Oh, look who can read!
You know what, you know something?
I can read too!
You don't have to read me a, a letter, Teeegan!
Just to prove that you're better than me!
I'm not, you don't know me!
Sara, you don't know me!
You don't - (throws up)
I'm sorry, was that your jack-o lantern?
I'm so sorry.
I'm sorry, Tegan.
I'm sorry, Sara.
I-Is there anything - you think I need help?

No more hugs 'til you give up drugs
I know it sucks for once think about us
No more hugs 'til you give up drugs
I know it sucks for once think about us
No more hugs 'til you give up drugs
I know it sucks for once think about us
No more hugs 'til you give up drugs
I know it sucks for once think about us
