  • Go, ahead and tell me you got all you want
    Fiver says you're wrong
    And I suppose you've come down to help me
    Move things along

    And we lapped it up and we're wise enough to know
    How it goes to get me honey
    But we're wise enough to know
    How it goes to get me honey
    'Cause we know this feeling all a little too well

    Listen, the distance between us, could've took a while
    Once we closed that difference, you turned up like a friend of mine
    Every once in a while, the little things make me smile
    As if one of our longshots paid off
    One of our longshots paid off

    So yeah, go, ahead and tell me something real
    Come on, how'd you feel?
    And I suppose you've come down to help me
    Answer to the riddle
    To the riddle

    Why we laughed it off and we're wise enough, who knows?
    How it goes to get me honey
    But we're wise enough to know
    How it goes to get me honey
    'Cause we know this feeling all a little too well

    Listen, the distance between us, could've took a while
    Once we closed that difference, you turned up like a friend of mine
    Every once in a while, the little things make me smile
    As if one of our longshots paid off
    One of our longshots paid off

    And it's by the by
    If it makes those nights fine
    We were side by side again
    And now, we're all careless and loved up
    You know exactly how it goes
    When you're giving us all kind of reason
    Thought I had to go
    Follow the heart I believe in, 'cause one of us must know
    When you're giving us all kind of reason
    Thought I had to go
    Follow the heart I believe in, 'cause in the past it's done me good
    So good, so good, so good

    Listen, the distance between us, could've took a while
    Once we closed that difference, you turn up like a friend of mine
    Every once in a while, the little things make me smile
    As if one of our longshots paid off

    Listen, the distance between us, could've took a while
    Once we closed that difference, you turn up like a friend of mine
    Every once in a while, the little things make me smile
    As if one of our longshots paid off
    One of our longshots paid off
    One of our longshots paid off Writer/s: Ryan Evan McCann
