Hellogoodbye - Shimmy Shimmy Quarter Turn

the wilted flowers that i gave 
were not as nice as your bouqet 
all the lyrics that i wrote 
not as smart as the words you spoke 
the starlight above my hometown 
aint as bright as the star ive found 
every drawing that i drew 
was never ever as cute as you 

I'm serious as a heart attack 
im looking in my almanac 
ive gotta find out all the things 
and find out where she got her wings 
shimmy shimmy quarter turn 
i feel like i will never learn 
how can i check lost and found 
when im too busy getting down 

gotta get it back to 
a back up plan to find you 
start acceleration 
take it back to square one 

gotta get it back to 
a back up plan to find you 
start acceleration 
take it back to square one 

i swear that im not kidding 
were just trying to fit in 
with all the other answers 
questions never confirmed 
states that keep us far apart 
turn down the beating of my heart 
mark the places in my book 
with photographs we never took 
i swear that im not kidding 
night time is so pretty 
with all the stars above your eyes 
im sneaking out and making ties 
states that keep us far apart 
track the beating with a chart 
mark the rythyms that i shook 
everytime i caught you look 

gotta get it back to 
a back up plan to find you 
start acceleration 
take it back to square one 

gotta get it back to 
a back up plan to find you 
start acceleration 
take it back to square one 

gotta get it back to 
a back up plan to find you 
start acceleration 
take it back to square one 

gotta get it back to 
a back up plan to find you 
start acceleration 
take it back to square one

FOOLISH GAMES*

You took your coat off and stood in the rain,
You're always crazy like that.
And I watched from my window,
Always felt I was outside looking in on you.
You're always the mysterious one with
Dark eyes and careless hair,
You were fashionably sensitive
But too cool to care.
You stood in my doorway, with nothing to say
Besides some comment on the weather.

Well in case you failed to notice,
In case you failed to see,
This is my heart bleeding before you,
This is me down on my knees, and...

These foolish games are tearing me apart,
And your thoughtless words are breaking my heart.
You're breaking my heart.
You're always brilliant in the morning,
Smoking your cigarettes and talking over coffee.
Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you.
You loved Mozart and you'd speak of your loved ones
As I clumsily strummed my guitar.
You'd teach me of honest things,
Things that were daring, things that were clean.
Things that knew what an honest dollar did mean.
I hid my soiled hands behind my back.
Somewhere along the line, I must've gone
Off track with you.


Well, excuse me, guess I've mistaken you for somebody else,
Somebody who gave a damn,
Somebody more like myself.


You took your coat off,
Stood in the rain,
You're always crazy like that.
