Let's just have some fun. Let's tear this shit apart. Let's tear the fucking house apart. Let's tear our fucking bodies apart, but let's just have some fun. All the bad names gone and the good ones were all wrong. I know things will be brighter later tonight. New York, I Love You. You're near but you seem so far. I'm so excited, I can't wait to meet you there and I don't care. Don't worry 'cause I'm not the kind that kiss and tell. I'll follow you into the park, through the jungle through the dark, and I'll be anything you ask and more. I don't want to wonder, if this is a blunder. I don't want to worry whether, we're gonna stay together till we die. New York, you're perfect don't please don't change a thing. I like it. Yeah, I know that I'm sleeping cause this dream's too amazing. And so I stayed up all night, slept in all day. I'm not gonna crack. It's the magical mystery kind.
I'm going in for the kill. It doesn't matter what you did. Who you were hanging with. Drop your guard, you don't have to be smart all of the time. Past and present, they don't matter, now the future's sorted out. But let me tell you I have never planned, while lessons learned go down the drain. You bought a new bag of pot, said let's make a new start. That's the way we get by. Some people just want to lie on beaches in the Caribbean. We just want to have a good time. Some people want some people to do as they please. We just want to have a good time tonight. Some people want to do crazy things to green amphibians. We just want to have a good time all the time. Like we did it over summer long. We found a new kind of dance in a magazine, tried it out it's like nothing you ever seen. Fall in love to 'Down on the Street'. We believe in the sum of ourselves. Do you mind if I take you home tonight, stay another day if that's okay. I would go along with someone like you. I got a hunger and I can't seem to get full, but you've got the love I need to see me through. And you'll never be alone. I know its right I know its okay, and I'd like to see you now and again. You sweet talk like a cop and you know it. I'm doing it for a thrill. We get high in back seats of cars, laugh until we think we'll die.
This is my sound. One, two, ready, go. I am wasted but I'm ready. Do I have to keep up the pace, to keep you satisfied. Lie down you know it's easy. Think it's not what you say, what you say is way too complicated. We want our film to be beautiful, not realistic. Perceive me in the radiance of terror dreams. You tried to reach deep but you never got in, and now you're outside me, you see all the beauty. You're the only one that knows. There's a possibility I wouldn't know. I don't want to jump in. I just want to make it. I want to love you madly. Go Slow. I want to love you now. Go Slow. I don't want to fake it. Go Slow, when the elephants arrive all the dishes rattle in the cupboards. And they'll always be something there for you. Maybe mother told you true. Things have gotten closer to the sun, and I've done things in small doses. I can't believe in everything, but most nights we've raided the same kingdoms, and none of our secrets are physical. I'll forgive and forget before I'm paralyzed. We could stick around and see this night through. So don't think that I'm pushing you away when you're the one that I've kept closest. This isn't another girl-meets-boy.
Stop, it's too late, I'm feeling frustrated. I'm hoping you'll understand, but you're bringing me down. I've explored you with the detachment of an analyst. So take me down, down through this. It's easy, but it seems so hard. Live through this and you won't look back. Now and then it seems that life is just too much. We put faith in our concerns. I'm nothin' much, I know it's true. I lack the style and the pedigree, and my chances are so few. Know the emptiness of talking blue the same issue. I would've been the one. This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin. Everything seems to go wrong when I stop drinking. Kill the common law that missed. This is a church that should believe. Kill the white within the bliss. How can I explain, I need you here and not here too. Just listen to me I won't pretend to understand the movement of the wind or the waves out in the ocean.
How do you keep it together? Tape holds things that cannot stick. I'm all, all unraveled. I'm flunking out, I'm flunking out, I'm gone, I'm just gone. I can never find the truth. Yes, I was the one. Everything seemed to go my way last night. Everything seems so wrong to me this morning. I'm nothin' like what I'd like to be. I need some meaning I can memorize, the kind I have always seems to slip my mind. Why am I dealing with this feeling? And just maybe I'm to blame. Sometimes it seems that the going is just too rough. So tell me when you hear my heart stop. For all I've heard but I'm not sure, I'm maxed out like a credit card. Thinking about tomorrow won't change how I feel today. And things go wrong no matter what I do. I'll continue to be my worst enemy.
