  • A soft sound
    To the way she wears her hair down
    Covering up her face
    Oh what a let down
    I don't seem to be having any effect now
    Falling all over the place

    But you're losing your words
    We're speaking in bodies
    Avoiding me and talking 'bout you
    But you're losing your turn
    I guess I'll never learn
    Cause I stay another hour or two

    For crying out loud, settle down
    You know I can't be found with you
    We get back to my house
    Your arms, my mouth
    Now I just stop myself around you

    A small town
    Dictating all the people we get around
    What a familiar face
    Do you get what I mean now?
    I'm so fixated on the girl with the soft sound
    And hair all over the place

    But you're sure that I'd learn
    I'm pushing through bodies
    Avoiding me and walking around you
    But you're cold and I burn
    I guess I'll never learn
    Cause I stay another hour or two

    For crying out loud, settle down!
    You know I can't be found with you
    We get back to my house
    Your arms, my mouth
    Now I just stop myself around you

    A soft sound
    To the way she wears her hair down
    Covering up her face
    Oh what a let down,
    I don't seem to be having any effect now
    Falling all over the place

    But you're losing your words
    We're speaking in bodies
    Avoiding me and talking 'bout you
    But you're losing your turn
    I guess I'll never learn
    Cause I stay another hour or two

    For crying out loud, settle down!
    You know I can't be found with you
    We get back to my house
    Your arms, my mouth
    Now I just stop myself around you
