lyrics

She says it’s liquid gold
And turns her back to me
She rubs it in my face
As far as I can see
And though we’re talking slow
It doesn’t change a thing, no
She smiles as she cries
I see bullets in her eyes

In the middle of a “how now, brown cow"
There goes that lady that we're told we have care about
It’s a joke and I know no one likes to think about it
But we know I’ll be the one to say what I’m thinking out loud
But after seeing what it’s like
We could have had ourselves a night
But it slipped between your fingers, your fingers, your fingers

I know that the way her heart spills
Couldn’t be much profounder
Couldn’t be much profounder
I know I’m walking on eggshells
Every time I’m around her
Every time I’m around her
I know that things ain’t getting easier
What if I don’t surround her?
Wouldn’t that astound her?
But what do I know?
What do I know?
What do I know?
Not much

The truth is to behold
There’s nothing new to say, no
It was played out in my head
in a different way, So
Even though you’re on the floor
You need to know what friends are for
When’s enough enough for you?
When’s enough enough?

I know that the way her heart spills
Couldn’t be much profounder
Couldn’t be much profounder
I know I’m walking on eggshells
Every time I’m around her
Every time I’m around her

I know that the way her heart spills
Couldn’t be much profounder
Couldn’t be much profounder
I know I’m walking on eggshells
Every time I’m around her
Every time I’m around her
I know that things ain’t getting easier
What if I don’t surround her?
Wouldn’t that astound her?
But what do I know?
What do I know?
What do I know?
Not much

about

Teenage Octopus Ann Arbor, Michigan

After lead guitarist Bobby Lewis formed Teenage Octopus in 2009, the band wasted no time hitting the Ann Arbor music scene with their fresh, unique sound. Influenced by alternative-rock bands such as Radiohead, Wilco and Spoon as well as jam-band pioneers Phish, the four-piece from University of Michigan's goal is to intertwine smart melodies and explorative jams. ... more
