Gimme Sympathy

Album: Fantasies (2009)
  • Get hot
    Get too close to the flame
    Wild open space
    Talk like an open book
    Sign me up

    Got no time to take a picture
    I'll remember someday
    All the chances we took
    We're so close to something
    Better left unknown
    I can feel it in my bones

    Gimme sympathy
    After all of this is gone
    Who would you rather be
    The Beatles or The Rolling Stones
    Oh seriously, you're gonna make mistakes,
    You're young
    Come on baby play me something like
    Here comes the sun

    Don't go
    Stay with the all unknown
    Stay away from the hooks
    All the chances we took
    We're so close to something
    Better left unknown
    I can feel it in my bones
