You I’ve got your picture in a box inside the closet with the démodé You I keep your letters behind the clock, and though the ticking stopped I know the time it is (It is) a fundamental state we fabricate to gauge the benefit of forgetfulness and quantify the rest You’re an undertow pulling out the seeds You commit to hide our situation (baby, come on) I am overgrown – pulling at the seams you commit to hide – mending your guilt till its out of time You, insert you covert point of view in half truths and restrained exchange And silence While I dissect the content of your careful construction (Construction is) a fundamental state we fabricate to raise an edifice we can jointly brace – against our better sense You’re an undertow pulling out the seeds You commit to hide our situation (baby, come on) I am overgrown pulling at the seams you commit to hide – mending your guilt till its out of time What are you waiting for? (What you can’t ignore) You move someone, then move aside Regret your makings and proceed as blind So blindly we go follow the guise, just like faithless true believers make a home in lies We’re building facades till they’re out of mind

I know that look when you’re getting all depressed I know what you need You're my dancing queen Hey, I get it when you're upset; when you can't let go, you put on that dress, you kick on the beats, and you get down to business (is) 
 (business) is so hard these days the way you wander No you just can't see the light so you fight, fight, fight Oh but you're fighting on the wrong side When you can’t let go You put on that dress to find that you're nothing but a mess. 
 Let it go tonight Let the beat take over Get up and get high That's your answer 
 You’ll know the time is right, ‘cause when you feel it cuts right to the heart, and saying like you mean it never seemed to be that smart But keeping to yourself is like a river that runs to an ocean in a sea so deep and turbulent 
 Let it go tonight Let the beat take over Get up and get high That's your answer 
 I know it feels your light is out The sun's set and you might never find love, but you're holding all the light on your tongue So close your eyes and take a step Open up your mouth and take a breath

When he’s on your side he could take you home right now, put you in the bedroom, take you for a ride and only ever let you go when you’re caught, when you’re careless And when you want it, he’ll take you to the roof, to the edge, and when it matters – it goes silent. He will put on a show uh oh oh And show off what he knows (He says) You should follow me I know where the water flows But, if you need a taste, pay up with your love and gold But, if I knew the way, I’d find a place where we can go (that’s) Just like a dream What you want, you make it And all around There’s enough, just take it And if anyone should need a drink, then we drink ‘cause there’s plenty, but not just because you’re looking for the setting sun Now back in the day mom and I’d watch the TV games And when someone won the race, water would come streaming down their face And when I’d wonder why Mom would clarify “There’s more to life than what you know. There are some years that take their toll, and Respite is a reminder of regrets” When nobody gets Your love or respect In the end you’ll pretend that you think you can’t get Any better (all the time) So let’s play make believe ‘til we believe we are far from dreaming, and what you need is there for the taking And if anyone should need a drink, then we drink ‘cause there’s plenty, and not just because, and not just because you’re always looking for the setting sun (oh, my love)

I look up at the two of us Now I know just what you see, save an instinct that won’t subside, which stirs the suffering in me But it’s the same without any difference My heart beats with a fever The sun rises and sets in the blue You fool, just open up your eyes So, I must be leaving Well I found a way to get paid what you get for a little less work. But each step you take gents and ladies will make conjectures as to your worth And it’s not worth waking up pleasing anyone else but yourself this time. When all the stars in the sky tell us where we are going you know it’s right to move, and set off my love Unashamed of this restiveness beckoning me towards the bend, to fold, turn, collect incidence, but always peering out o’er the edge ‘Cause it’s the same without any difference This fever in my chest is enough The moon moves and changes disguise You fool, just open up your eyes Well I found a way to get paid what you get for a little less work. But each step you take gents and ladies will make conjectures as to your worth And it’s not worth waking up pleasing anyone else but yourself this time. When all the stars in the sky tell us where we are going you know it’s right to move, and set off my love, set off my love (You may not get what you want, but you get what you need You may not get what you want, but you get what you need. Am I what you want, my love? Or is there something else that you need? Am I what you want, my love? Or is there something else that you need?)
