Lyrics

She shone up bright like a knife
Wearing tennis shorts made of stripes
Hand in hand to the grass and we got it right
Got it nice, nice, nice

Just a glimpse of an ankle and I
React like it's 1805
And I'd swim to the poles just to find the right satellite
It'll take all of my strength to give up

But you all know I tried
So forget about it, girl
My head's like a kite
When such a creature I sight

To town, where your feet leave no prints on the ground
Have I left my home just to whine in this microphone?
It gets worse every time that we talk, can't afford to be just one in a flock
But that's your lot when you're after such a well-made lock who was classically trained to give up

And my friends know I tried, so forget about it, girl
Even I don't know why
I can't just stay the course, keep my hands on the wheel
Our detractors were right, my head's like a kite

'Cause all my thoughts run astray
And I'm a walking cliché
When such a creature I sight

I just can't, I just can't, I just can't stay the course
Keep my hands on the wheel
Our detractors were right
My head's like a kite
