Lyrics

I feel so possessive darling
Keep my toes close to you
With pointed finger I still
Count myself in sets of two

We’ll be so progressive darling
Solar cell on our roof
We’ll renew our vows each morning
Hyperloop our kids to school

I can be malignant darling
When the truth is plain to see
I thought you for hours this week
I’m your best shot presently

I say hands up
I say hands down
When I look inside me baby
You’re throwing me all around
I see flash bulbs
I see LEDs
No matter where I look man
You’re the brightest light in front of me

I seem so pathetic darling
Check my phone constantly
Texts loop like a mantra through me
Buzzing blasts of dopamine

I say hands up
I say hands down
When I look inside me baby
You’re throwing me all around
I see flash bulbs
I see LEDs
No matter where I look man
You’re the brightest light in front of me

We can see the sea change darling
When we touch wirelessly
With our sweaty clothes and eyebrows
We’ll remember how it feels to feel everything

Please don’t go, la la la...
