shimmy shimmy quarter turn

the wilted flowers that i gave

were not as nice as your bouqet

all the lyrics that i wrote

not as smart as the words he spoke

the starlight above my hometown

aint as bright as the star ive found

every drawing that i drew

was never ever as cute as you



serious as a heart attack

im looking in my almanac

ive gotta find out all the things

and find out where you got your wings

shimmy shimmy quarter turn

i feel like i will never learn

how can i check lost and found

when im too busy getting down



gotta get it back to

a back up plan to find you

start acceleration

take it back to square one



i swear im not kidding

were just looking to fit in

with all the other answers

to questions never confirmed

states that keep us far apart

turn down the beating of my heart

mark the places in my book

with photographs we never took

i swear im not kidding

the night time is so pretty

with all the stars above your eyes

im sneaking out and making ties

states that keep us far apart

track the beating with a chart

mark the rythyms that i shook

everytime i caught you look
