Don't get me wrong If I'm looking kind of dazzled I see neon lights Whenever you walk by
Don't get me wrong If you say, "hello", and I take a ride Upon a sea where the mystic moon Is playing havoc with the tide Don't get me wrong
Don't get me wrong If I'm acting so distracted I'm thinking about the fireworks That go off when you smile
Don't get me wrong If I split like light refracted I'm only off to wander Across a moonlit mile
Once in a while, two people meet Seemingly for no reason They just pass on the street Suddenly, thunder showers everywhere Who can explain the thunder and rain? But there's something in the air
Don't get me wrong If I come and go like fashion I might be great tomorrow But hopeless yesterday
Don't get me wrong If I fall in the mode of fashion It might be unbelievable But let's not say, "so long" It might just be fantastic Don't get me wrong

Larry from UkReally rather underrated song, both lyrically and musically. Your basic boy meets girl theme, but lifted hugely by great lines like "split like light refracted" and "upon the sea where a mystic moon is playing havoc with the tide". Then, to top it off, that great minor chord at the end... Can't help but love it.
Kacey Musgraves originally offered "Follow Your Arrow" to her friend Katy Perry. However, Perry thought Musgraves should record the song herself as it seemed, "like something that you would totally say."
