Slow Burn

Cue the music, let it build

the melancholy soundtrack of a summer indie film

I'm the quirky, unconventional leading guy

I say stupid garbage no one’s ever said in their real life

 

like "I've been taking bigger breaths lately

cause you told me not to hold it waiting for you to commit"

 

Slow Burn

I'd trade a kiss from her for a laugh to pass your lips

Slow Burn

My heart goes pitter patter, pitter patter; batter up, I'm up next

Slow Burn, Slow Burn ‘cause it’s the only light I know

while there’s hope for you and me, I burn real slow

 

So let’s stay home tonight my love

I don't like crowded rooms or the silly folk that fill them up

my introversions not a charming trait

my wits not good for much but thinking up useless stuff to say

 

Like "My hopes are sleeping quietly in bed

cause you told me not to get them up dreamin’ one day you'd commit!"

 

Slow Burn

I'd trade a kiss from her for a laugh to pass your lips

Slow Burn

My heart goes pitter patter, pitter patter; batter up, I'm up next

Slow Burn, Slow Burn ‘cause it’s the only light I know

while there’s hope for you and me, I burn real slow

 

I didn't know better, so I didn't better

I held onto hope when its best I forget her

I didn't know better, so I didn't better

Love has a spirit and I followed the letter

I didn't know better, so I didn't better

I've loved her so long and I can't quite remember

all of my eggs in her basket won't hatch

but I've counted each one and now I want 'em all back!

 

Slow Burn

I'd trade a kiss from her for a laugh to pass your lips

Slow Burn

My heart goes pitter patter, pitter patter; batter up, I'm up next

Slow Burn, Slow Burn ‘cause it’s the only lie I know

while there’s hope for you and me, I burn real slow
