lyrics

In an instant eclipse I'm shaking my hips to the music, making you sick. Well it's never been me to say anything about this or anything, it's just baby...

I am found facing a mountain. From this silent mound springs forth a fountain that I was not expecting. Let's sit down and talk. You stop objecting. That look, it says you're heart's not here. Just stop this, just smile, come here.

You say I'm too much like a child; That you're embarrassed cause I'm wild when I'm beside you. Ooo-ooo doo-doo-doo-doo-doo! It's a harsh word, it scrapes, but it's not about to change my whole face. I'm the same as back before you changed.

Now, I am found facing a mountain. From this silent mound springs forth a fountain that I was not expecting. Let's sit down and talk. You stop objecting. That look, it says you're heart's not here. Just stop this, just smile, come here.

And all the kings’ gentlemen can cheer and give me high fives and say I'm the man and that I can. But please don't mistake that I'm dragged across the rake every time you go the least bit below optimistic. You know that you're the only thing that makes me feel secure.

I'm broken up now. I'm inside of a cold room sideways. (Don't plug your ears. You won't want to hear this now.) Even sideways, I'm in love with all she's done. (Can't you see, aren't you finding, she's just tying you down?) No sirs we're just fine. We may just need some time. (Listen you're a lion in the dirt.) The light's too bright. Can I go inside and shut the blinds and close my eyes? (The light will sharpen you're teeth and make you fierce and stronger to fight.)

Come on now please won't you let me in so we can talk about everything that went down here. Come on now please now the situation's clear. Let's talk about everything that went down here.

'Cause I was not expecting this. Just sit down, let's talk. You stop objecting this. That look, it says you're heart's not here. Just stop this, just smile, come here.
