Chateau Lobby

Album: I Love You, Honeybear (2015)
  • Emma eats bread and butter
    Like a queen would have ostrich and cobra wine
    We’ll have satanic Christmas Eve
    And play piano in the chateau lobby

    I’ve never done this
    Baby be gentle
    It’s my first time
    I've got you inside

    People are boring
    But you’re something else completely
    Damn let’s take our chances

    I wanna take you in the kitchen
    Lift up your wedding dress someone was probably murdered in
    So bourgeoisie to keep waiting
    Dating for twenty years just feels pretty civilian
    I’ve never thought that
    Ever thought that once in my whole life
    You are my first time

    People are boring
    But you’re something else I can’t explain
    You take my last name

    First time you let me stay the night
    Despite your own rules
    You took off early to go cheat your way through film school
    You left a note in your perfect script
    Stay as long as you want
    And I haven’t left your bed since

    I haven’t hated all the same things
    As somebody else since I remember
    What’s going on for
    What are you doing with your whole life
    How about forever

  • Chris Hogarth from Los AngelesWhat a Great song! I never understood the lyric "lift up your wedding dress that someone's probably been murdered in" But , that's the point I guess.
