Business Dinners

Album: Sucker Punch (2019)
  • Oh, you just want me to be
    Sweeter, better, angel, yeah
    Business dinners
    You just want me to be
    Pictures, numbers, figures, yeah
    Deeper, smarter
    And I'll just try to be me

    In the silence, on my own
    Trapped in my head from the moment I wake up
    Oh, I've been feeling kinda low
    Trapped in my head from the moment I wake up

    Standing on the shoreline, I just wanna swim and float
    (I just wanna know)
    Swept over by the undertow, I just wanna swim and float
    (You just want me, just want me to be)

    Sweeter, better, angel, yeah
    Business dinners
    You just want me to be
    Pictures, numbers, figures, yeah
    Deeper, smarter
    And I'll just try to be me, ooh (I just, I just, I just, I just)
    I'll just try to be me, ooh (I just, I just, I just, I just)
    I'll just try to be me, ooh (I just, I just, I just, I just)
    I'll just try to be me, ooh (I just, I just, I just, I just)
    I'll just try to be me

    La-la-la-la, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la-la-la, la-la-la-la

    There's a castle in my room
    I want it all, but I don't wanna wake up
    You say I got some attitude
    'Cause I want it all and I don't wanna wake up

    Standing on the shoreline, I just wanna swim and float
    (Oh, you wanna go)
    Swept over by the undertow, I just wanna swim and float
    (You just want me, just want me to be)

    Sweeter, better, angel, yeah
    Business dinners
    You just want me to be
    Pictures, numbers, figures, yeah
    Deeper, smarter
    And I'll just try to be me, ooh (I just, I just, I just, I just)
    I'll just try to be me, ooh (I just, I just, I just, I just)
    I'll just try to be me, ooh (I just, I just, I just, I just)
    I'll just try to be me, ooh (I just, I just, I just, I just)
    I'll just try to be me

    La-la-la-la, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la, la, la, la, la, la
    La, la-la-la, la-la-la-la
    La-la-la-la, la-la, la-la
    La, la, la, la-la
    La, la-la-la, la, la-la-la-la
    La, la
    I'll just try to be me Writer/s: Martin Stilling, Noonie Bao, Patrik Berger, Sigrid Solbakk Raabe
