Strings

Album: Young the Giant (2011)
  • Oh what did I say?
    She's all shook up
    Lost in the summer, man
    We're burning up
    The time don't show
    When the sun gets carried
    The tide curves off your body
    Oh you'll stay with me

    I, now I will show you
    It's how I lie
    When no one told you

    Oh what did I say?
    She's all shook up
    Vision by the seaside
    We move
    But I don't know
    When the fire gets hazy
    The flames roll down and off her body
    Oh you'll stay with me

    I, now I will show you
    It's how I lie
    When no one told you

    So ride, Sherry, ride, Sherry, ride
    I will show you
    We'll go in the night
    Wondering why no one told you

    Now I can walk the stones of the shoreline
    And taste the ocean salt when the cold shines
    My words are rolling soft down your south side

    I, now I will show you
    It's how I lie
    When no one told you

    So ride, Sherry, ride, Sherry, ride
    I will show you
    We'll go in the night
    Wondering why no one told you

    Why, you know it goes, you know it goes
    Why, you know it goes, you know it goes
    Why it goes Writer/s: ERIC MATTHEW CANNATA, FRANCOIS PAUL COMTOIS, JACOB JOHN TILLEY, PAYAM REZA DOOSTZADEH, SAMEER GADHIA
