"Lets Play Clowns!" as written by and Murchy Johnson....
Before we leave home, our night is still
And we lay on the bed fully dressed
This is a new thing
And we both deserve this,
One night with no one.
It's rare to feel this expensive
But next to a girl like her
It's impossible not to.
In this house, in this town.
Before we leave home, we are alone
And now new thoughts come
If the car won't start, would it be better if it did?
But I know it will
And this we'll lose
A moon to look to
From inside out
Without the lights on
It's still early
A bright 10:30
And we speed through the evening.

    General Commentyo,I love this band it's so chill and you can you just lie back with someone you cxare about and listen to the whole CD in silence but you'll feel like you spoke the whole time,and your bodies dont have to touch,it'll just fell right.

    General CommentI love how so many of their songs are about girls, and the uplifting times they have with them. All of their music is so interestingly fun, it really puts me in a better mood.

    General CommentTrue that.
    Just so calming and relaxing.
    If you're ever feeling down, listen to MTB.

    General Commentim pretty sure this song is about just wasting away the day with one you love and not caring "If the car won't start, would it be better if it did?" is the best line in the song....MOTB rox

    i love this.
    it's beautiful,
    like they've spent their time having sex with other people,
    so tonight, they're just laying in bed, clothes on.
    and they both deserve a night off from that life.
