Dashboard Confessional – Hands Down

[You know that one song. That one that when you start to like someone, you listen to the song over and over and over again? Yeah, that… ]

 

Breathe in for luck.
Breathe in so deep.
This air is blessed, you share with me.
This night is wild, so calm and dull.
These hearts, they race, from self-control.
Your legs are smooth, as they graze mine.
We’re doing fine.
We’re doing nothing at all.

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me.
So won’t you kill me?
So I die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst,
to break or bury, or wear as jewelry.
Whichever you prefer.

The words are hushed, “let’s not get busted.”
Just lay entwined here, undiscovered.
Safe in here from all the stupid questions.
“Hey did you get some?”
Man that is so dumb.
Stay quiet, stay near, stay close, they can’t hear.
So we can get some.

My hopes are so high that your kiss might kill me.
So won’t you kill me?
So I die happy.
My heart is yours to fill or burst,
to break or bury, or wear as jewelry.
Whichever you prefer.

Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember.
Always remember the sound of the stereo.
The dim of the soft lights.
The scent of your hair, that you twirled in your fingers.
And the time on the clock, when we realized “It’s so late!”
And this walk that we share together.
The streets were wet, and the gate was locked,
So I jumped it, and let you in.
And you stood at the door, with your hands on my waist.
And you kissed me like you meant it.
And I knew…that you meant it.
