LBEP lyrics

LIVING, BREATHING

If in a song you find a shovel
let it dig you up and leave you all unsettled
it's a terrible, wonderful feeling
I'm living, breathing      

And though you misaddressed it
heaven sent it
and so it came to me
by way of a melody
in a dream I'm dropping matches
fanning the fire by batting eyelashes
you've got that thing I need
a hot hook and heart on your sleeve
and maybe all it means
I'm living, breathing      

And when you left it
I buried my nose in your jacket
I meant everything I said
in the note I put in the pocket
In this light I can't see past it
Where would you be if you were my glasses?
But I don't need to see
I'll get on my hands and knees
hook me  up to the heart on your sleeve
I'm living, breathing

If I'm gonna do down let me go like this
lighting up a dancefloor
wet and plugged in

 

MIRROR

I need your full attention
I got you a present
it's a mirror so fine
that you have got to see it to believe it
look deep into my eyes
reach out and touch me baby
you can stay tonight
it's a wicked weevil
been gnawing at your mind
but may I remind ya
that you are primed, yeah
primed
to reach your full potential
powerful influential
you've got it all inside
I'm just the mirror
the string around your finger
look deep into my eyes
Turn your attention
to your own reflection
well hello there, good lookin
I'll be watching you
watching me
watching you
watching me
in the mirror undressing
no one can touch you baby
you're out of sight
it's a wicked weevil
been gnawing at your mind
but may I remind ya
that you are primed, yeah
primed
to reach your full potential
powerful, influential
you've got it all inside
I'm just the mirror
the string around your finger
look deep into my eyes

Put your palms up to the glass
I'ma reach out and touch you right back
lean in with parted lips
I'ma exhale and make a wish
that you see me
feel me
this is a message from your one and only
see me
feel me
primed
to reach your full potential
powerful, influential
you've got it all inside
I'm just the mirror
the string around your finger
look deep into my eyes
eyes
eyes
eyes

THEY TORE DOWN THE SK8 PARK

You must have fallen on your head as a baby
so sad, sorry
passed out in the way of
the portal to your happy place
but you're a teenage dream on your skateboard
there's no waking Rip Van Winkle
Tony, baby, maybe you'll never wake up
They tore down the sk8 park

You were left on the step as a baby
too bad, such a pity
Why climb that mountain sober?
Have a drink and ollie over!
Cause you're a teenage dream on your skateboard
there's no waking Rip Van Winkle
Tony, baby, maybe you'll never wake up
They tore down the sk8 park

He's a mean dog you should stay away from
He's a viper waiting for his victim
Tony, you're in bad condition
Broken
Something's missing

You're a teenage dream on your skate board
there's no waking Rip Van Winkle
Tony, baby maybe you'll never wake up
They tore down the sk8 park

EGYPTOLOGY

Me and my man Tutankhamen
we've got some things in common
golden from top to bottom
and royal spoiled rotten

I go where he go
I follow my pharoah
to the underworld disco
down in Old Cairo
bury me baby
underneath the bass boom
afterparty's raging
eternally in Tut's tomb
take my life I'll rise again
to shake it like an ancient Egyptian

Me and my girl Cleopatra
that queenie carpetbagger
all royal style and swagger
kickin' asp and comin' atcha
Yo! Osiris
I'm twice as nice as Isis
let me ride shotgun sarcophagus
bury me baby
underneath the bass boom
afterparty's raging
eternally in Tut's tomb
take my life I'll rise again
to shake it like an ancient Egyptian

You can't take it with you
(can't take it, no you can't)
we're all going back to sky and sand
the only safe place is in the bass boom
it just gets dug up if it's in your tomb
So this is what we'll do:
You bring the hot licks
I've got lyrics
we can carve em out in
golden hieroglyphics
bury me baby
underneath the bass boom
afterparty's raging
eternally in Tut's tomb
take my life I'll rise again
to shake it like an ancient Egyptian
