She was out for lunch It was a friday special Something bout buckets of wings It’s almost saturday I hope the weather can stay Wanna look good for the social She was truly adamantly checked out locked in It’s nice to wind down Not until you walked by and you whisper first (Have an open mind stop pleading the fifth) A scenario like if you pull me first (You could give a little bit coming off too stiff) You could say there’s only one calling out for me You would grab my hand for fun Ask me not to leave under the awning I get it couldn’t go that way, but could you imagine Oh I get it couldn’t go that way, but wouldn’t you love it She was truly adamantly checked out locked in It’s nice to wind down Not until you walked by, and you whisper first (Have an open mind stop pleading the fifth) A scenario like if you pull me first (You could give a little bit coming off too stiff) You could say there’s only one calling out for me You would grab my hand for fun and ask me not to leave Only one calling out for me You could grab my hand for fun Ask me not to leave under the awning

It’s so much better when you look back on it Remind me of the order Was I resting on your shoulder Remind me of the sweetness Oh on top of my lips And I, I wanted to get close to you So I thought of something we could do Another reason to wait, another reason to wait We’re gonna keep on dancing, We’re gonna keep on dancing Another reason to wait, another reason to wait We’re gonna keep on dancing, We’re gonna keep on dancing We gotta, we gotta keep dancing All is ours (keep dancing) On and off, when we want Oh, oh (keep dancing) On and off, when we want Excuse me for a second But movement is my blessing And pardon my directness But you’re what I’m missing And I, I wanted to stick next to you So I thought of something we should do Another reason to wait, another reason to wait We’re gonna keep on dancing, we’re gonna keep on dancing Another reason to wait, another reason to wait We’re gonna keep on dancing, we’re gonna keep on dancing Another reason, another reason We’re gonna keep on - dancing, we’re gonna keep on - dancing We gotta - keep going All is ours is ours, when we want All is ours is ours, when we want All is ours is ours All is ours is ours To dance It’s so much better when we look back on it

Should be a breeze balancing on a slope Show me your teeth over piles of lemons Two bowls of them gleam I guess so, how’d you manage? We’re stealthy and very lucky You ain’t you and I’m famished Was working ‘til I stopped it Should be a breeze balancing on a slope Lift with your knees Carry boxes of lemons too iffy for me I guess so How’d you manage We’re stealthy and very lucky You ain’t you and I’m famished Was working ‘til I stopped it You ain’t you, you ain’t you, you ain’t you Should be a breeze - balancing

Vision focused on blurry relation press stop Missing focused on pressure to breathe in, press stop It was kind of a toss up cuz I cut my losses And I was all for it just to feel rigid Racing for power and towering over And we were the keepers out in the open Mission lonely without the patience, it’s up Blessed calling on every hiccup, slip up It was kind of a toss up cuz I cut my losses And I was all for it just to stay rigid Racing for power and towering over And we were the keepers Out in the open (But you were closest, and we were closer, and I was over) (Because your behavior cracks the windows, and I was over) We can work on it We can work If you need me I’ll be here soon enough If you need me I’ll be here soon enough If you need me I’ll be here soon enough Did you need me? It was kind of a toss up cuz I cut my losses And I was all for it just to stay rigid Racing for power and towering over And we were the keepers out in the open

Given the chance you would love isn’t that how you phrased it? Risen like dough in the streets didn’t have to be honest Nothing gets lost it’s for keeps isn’t that how you like it, yeah Glitter for eyes to disguise what we deal with most days We won’t get through since we weren’t living I’m stuck on you ‘til we lose the feeling We won’t get through since we weren’t living I’ll wait for you ‘til we lose the feeling Hey, my timing was all wrong Hey, my timing was all wrong Hey, my timing was all wrong Hey, my timing was all wrong Waiting for dawn for the glow for some sunlight to bathe in But we don’t wanna go just yet get set right there Nothing gets lost it’s for keeps isn’t that how you like it, yeah Shimmer for lips to dismiss what we go through most days We won’t get through since we weren’t living I’m stuck on you ‘til we lose the feeling We won’t get through since we weren’t living I’ll wait for you ‘til we lose the feeling Hey, my timing was all wrong Hey, my timing was all wrong Hey, my timing was all wrong Hey, my timing was all wrong That feeling!

Miss U 03:56
I collected greatness when you were not around I had cushions and clouds, softest I have found But none of what I’m saying is real No none of what I’m saying is real I might miss you, but I won’t show it Yeah I miss you, but I won’t show it Not again So I slept on it. I thought about what it meant for me, how many times I’ve felt swept, how many times I’ve felt left, and it’s not so bad, turns out you’re just really really busy like everyone else living here… where does the time go, right? Right? I might miss you, but I won’t show it Yeah I miss you, but I won’t show it And I, I miss you, I And I, I miss you, I It’s so silly in its simplicity It’s just something that I’m itching to get out (On the way to certainty or not) (Awful close to certainty or not) It’s so silly in its simplicity It’s just something that I’ve been meaning to get out But none of what I’m saying is real, no none of what I’m saying is real. I might miss you but I won’t show it Yeah I miss you but I won’t show it

Love Trade 04:15
You stoppin’ through, I might as well face it Call all your friends, we could get it rollin’ Feelin’ so good when we dance til close Cuz you so smooth about it The nights run off around you not sure what I’d do without you Caught in your arms when the lights turn on You said my world surrounds you So baby don’t leave without me, without the thought of me Oh yeah, the thought of me Before it gets away Watching also tracking the center of the heart forgiven Prizes if you care, fonder of the gesture The puzzle’s on the box above it Never one to lose my mind bout you and I Didn’t mean to cut in line but you trade love for lies Slithering across the soul many nights I never meant to give up hope but you trade love for lies For lies Vibe with me ‘til the next day on the low on the low You said I look good no I look great, so incredible And I hear what they keep saying on the low on the low But I see what you do for me my heart my soul Feelin’ so good when we dance ‘til close, cuz you so smooth about it The nights run off around you, not sure what I’d do without you Caught in your arms when the lights turn on You said my world surrounds you So baby don’t leave without me Counting everything Watching also tracking the center of the heart forgiven Prizes if you care, fonder of the gesture The puzzle’s on the box above it Never one to lose my mind bout you and I Didn’t mean to cut in line but you trade love for lies Slithering across the soul many nights Never one to give up hope but you trade love for lies

Am I Less 04:31
I could let you up I could let you hold me Unless I’m washing the dreams and drying ‘em clean You could try for me You could tell me stories Less I’m thinking of ways to tiptoe away Am I less? Am I less? It wasn’t good It’s understood Two orders neat Your eyes on me What if I’m not yours, I’m not yours ah I could give you up Finally close a chapter Catch you floating away closing up to erase You would try for me Only say the right things While I’m rearranging and backing away Am I less? Grip loosens quick Dead air fresh take What I perceived Toying with me What if I’m not yours, I’m not yours ah Yours
