Spy Theme 00:55

Chorus I know that growing olds not fun When it feels like yr the only one But if it's over and you think your done Don't take us with you when yr gone Don't take us down down down down down Verse All my life I have faith Things will change Things will stay No rewind on this tape Spit it out Or change tastes Chorus Verse So go out To a show Tell a friend Tell the world A million places to be The scenes not over til you want it to be

Verse I found midnight Beneath the lake Took it back to the cave just to fade away And in the moonlight I found sunshine In the moonshine beneath my bed Chorus We saw him just the other day His teeth were black and his eyes were gray Verse On the turntable is Tony Bennet And I keep thinking I'm clark gable A step behind Bending spoons with my mind I pass the time counting glasses of wine
4.
Verse I hope you dance. But if you don't I'd understand Warm by the fire Away from the pan. If yr conspiracy theories come true What would you do Get high on the chemtrails A dream come true Chorus 20 years from now We'll look back at how Stayed up late that day Dance the night away Lost in the crowd Aloft in the sound Verse Dawn to dusk Yr skin makes me blush Las Vegas or bust Replacing dust with dust If all of your conspiracy theories come true What would you do Add em up and stack into steps A dream come true But if we get high on the chemtrails Or drunk on Manhattans

Rebound 02:26
Heart-broken and attractive A sad, sloppy mess Looking for approval And easily impressed Beware they say, but why would I listen? I need to know what I've been missin' I'm no one you can trust All little boy lonely with curious lust Confusion turns me upside down Lost as quickly as I'm found But soon enough it turns around On the rebound Call it fate or true love Never forced romance Fall into a new love Maybe perfect love by chance Beware they say, but why would I listen When it feels this good? No one lives their life Doing all the things they say they should Confusion turns me upside down Lost as quickly as I'm found But soon enough it turns around On the rebound

Did we break up To test the effects in space Or did you wake up With those tears rolling down your face We'll be fine but in no time The sunshine fades away There'll be no more gravity To pull those tears slowly down your face In the shuttle with you In my airtight suit And then I wake up To the sounds coming off of the streets But when I take off and Get myself some coffee I'm so haunted By the faces and places around me There's no intermission Is this your Mission Or can I stay At the party with you In my favorite suit In the shuttle with you In my airtight space suit
