  • I can love you
    Or better yet, I can leave you alone
    Leave my phone
    Untouched like, say, I don't know

    And if I try hard
    And if I sing all the songs
    Would you notice
    That's what I want?
    Oh, I don't know

    But it's glamorous for days
    And I picked up all the sayings
    Are there drug dealers in your parts?
    Now you know how literal my songs are

    I can love you
    Or better yet, I can leave you alone
    Throw out phone
    Go to Heathrow and just fly home

    But it's glamorous for days
    And I picked up all the sayings
    Are there drug dealers in your parts?
    Now you know how literal my songs are

    World War III
    I got an all new pain
    Coming up your street
    On the Northern Line
    Like endlessly
    World War III
    Between you and me
    Coming up your street
    In South Kensington
    Like endlessly
    Almost endlessly

    I can love you
    Or better yet, I can leave you alone Writer/s: Donovan Woods

Who writes a song about a name they found in a phone book? That's just one of the everyday things these guys find to sing about. Anything in their field of vision or general scope of knowledge is fair game. If you cross paths with them, so are you.
