"Shimmy Shimmy Quarter Turn" as written by and Forrest Kline....
The wilted flowers that I gave
Were not as nice as your bouquet
All the lyrics that I wrote
Not as smart as the words you spoke
The starlight above my hometown
Ain't as bright as the star I've found
Every drawing that I do
Is never ever as cute as you

I'm as serious as a heart attack
I'm looking in my almanac
I've gotta find out all the things,
Find out where she got her wings
Shimmy shimmy quarter turn
I feel like I will never learn
How can I check lost and found
When I'm too busy getting down

Gotta get it back to
A back up plan to find you
Start acceleration
Take it back to square one [Repeat x2]

I swear that I'm not kidding
We're just trying to fit in
With all the other answers
To questions never confirmed
States that keep us far apart
Track the beating of my heart
Mark the places in my book
With photographs we never took
I swear that I'm not kidding
The night time is so pretty
With all the stars above your eyes
I'm sneaking out and making ties
States that keep us far apart
Track the beating with a chart
Mark the rhythms that I shook
Every time I caught you look

Gotta get it back to
A back up plan to find you
Start acceleration
Take it back to square one [Repeat x4]

    General Commenti love hellogoodbye, they're so unique, and they fucking rock. i've noticed there are two versions of this song too..the one with "flawless victory" at the end of it from mortal combat is the best.
