Turn

Album: Beautiful People Will Ruin Your Life (2017)
  • I jump from thought to thought like a flea jumps to a light
    You could give an aspirin the headache of its life
    Maybe it's the crazy that I'd miss
    Watering plastic plants in the hope that they'll grow
    Seeing a message flash and then smashing up my phone
    Maybe it's the crazy that I'd miss
    It won't get better than this

    I like the way your brain works, I like the way you try
    To run with the wolf pack when your legs are tired
    I like the way you turn me inside and out
    I like the way you turn
    I like the way your brain works
    I like the way your brain works

    I want to get college girl drunk tonight
    No morning fears, no mountains to climb
    They say the best memories are the ones that we forget
    Like listening to Drake at your best friend's swimming pool
    Floating anti-clockwise in a red mushroom
    Maybe it's the crazy that I'd miss
    It won't get better than this

    I like the way your brain works, I like the way you try
    To run with the wolf pack when your legs are tired
    I like the way you turn me inside and out
    I like the way you turn
    I like the way your brain works
    I like the way your brain works

    Baby, it's the crazy I like
    I think I saw the world turn in your eyes
    Baby, it's the crazy I like
    And maybe it's the bullshit I'd miss
    Screaming at the moon in black lipstick
    Maybe it's the bullshit I'd miss
    It won't get better than this Writer/s: Blake Preston Harnage, Matthew Edward Murphy, Micah Rayan Premnath
