Song Description

Awesome back beat, bridged well between indie rock and chill dance music.

Story Behind the Song

An unforgettable night of unrequited love, mischief and people watching.

Lyrics

Verse 1:
I won't disturb you dear when I leave here in the morning
I think it best that I not serve a warning, delay us from admitting just what we did

My head aches as evidence from a night of heavy drinking
Designed to interrupt, distort our thinking, distract from things once felt with young maliced hearts

Verse 2:
The girl I knew back in school she had a different way to get you
In subtlety she found herself a warm ruse enough to make you feel some more alive

When I first became aware of the flash of early interest
The trumpets blared loud enough to deafen, and others seemed extras in a dream

Chorus 1:
I don't know what was done that made you leave
But now we've gone and fucked it up, completely, completely

Verse 3:
When Jack left the party ran to fish his friend out of the river
I stuck around long enough to find a reason to stay as I caught you from afar and all others went dark
The night moved, I found myself in a room had grown more crowded but still unseen by the one that had held my attention
'Til the cops came to kick, kick, us out into the night

Bridge 1:
The familiar feeling of the tightening of your grip when you're on my mind

Verse 4:
Under cover of darkness I found you, free to forget history, allowed to pretend this was a first meeting, allow ourselves to indulge and put the past in its place

And briefly the girl from back in school returned, the one I knew before the rules the one before the boredom,
The girl who could put all at ease if just given the chance

Chorus 2:
I don't know what we said that made it bleed
But now we've gone and fucked it up, completely

I don't know what we did that made you leave
I don't know what was done that made you leave
But now we've gone and fucked it up, completely, completely

Bridge 2:
The familiar feeling of the tightening of your grip when you're on my mind
You throw me out of synch, would it be easier to just let it be?
The familiar feeling of the tightening of your grip when you're in my mind

V5:
Now where does this leave us, I don't want to think myself too hasty
Each moment I feel my feelings ever-changing
I've worked too hard getting whole to just give it away

And briefly I'm reminded of trumpets loud enough to deafen
With a stillness found only with divine intervention
It's the thought that I take with me on my way out the door
