Crush'd

Album: Say Anything (2009)

  • When I was eight years old
    Before puberty took hold
    I thought I'd
    End up beside a princess bride
    And love was indivisible
    Never mind how my taste reflects
    A disturbing Oedipal complex
    It's not awkward girl
    The compliments are coming next

    You're no witch, you're no wench,
    You're like Bjork with better fashion sense
    A phone, 50 cents, and I'm building up my confidence
    Respect to your work, you're an artist,
    I'm a silly jerk
    I think that dynamic could work
    So work it

    I have a total crush on you, baby
    And I can't let it go, oh no
    I have a total crush on you baby, baby!
    If only I could let you know

    When we spoke no joke
    I started shedding slutty girls
    Like snake skin, my collection
    Acquired through shallow misdirection
    And as I drive tonight
    West coast sky
    Daring me to try
    I feel alive tonight
    Possibility, that I'm your guy
    Though I suffer from dyslexia,
    Mild man-orexia
    And my hair cannot commit
    To one popular genre of music
    And though they all claim,
    That a girl can't take a boy's last name
    Or end up divorced and estranged
    I'm counting on you

    I have a total crush on you, baby
    And I can't let it go, oh no
    I have a total crush on you baby, baby!
    If only I could

    Your other suitors are no poets
    They're only actors who can play guitar
    Have I won your heart?
    They're not students or screenwriters
    They're only models that they taught to read
    Love would you agree?

    I have a total crush on you, baby
    And I can't let it go, oh no
    I have a total crush on you baby, baby!
    If only I could

    Quite sure you love me, Sherri
    Quite sure I love you too
    We should make a verbal agreement to only to kiss each other
    Cause one time, beneath the sky, outside my new york pigsty
    I saw a vision of you and I! haha!

    Did it hurt? Did it hurt? Did it hurt,
    When you fell from heaven girl?
    Did it hurt? Did it hurt? Did it hurt,
    When you fell from heaven girl?
    La da-da da-da da-da, la da-da da-da
    La da-da da-da da-da, la da-da da-da Writer/s: MAXIM BEMIS
