"Like a Call" as written by and Bird/cecil/sutherland/perry/mildren....
All the cars down the bottom, windmill chasing
calling police so, so we're placing
weight on minds
Red sports car Northwest dated, counting the sleeps
I'm counting, waiting
stalled inside

There's no tires to save our skins
(they're bald and old)
their advice won't change our plans

Through an old telescope for close up faces
you're cornering the fire it works in your favor
Like the all night long at 3am feeling
you get in your legs when you're dancing on the ceiling
friends of mine

And you change the beat disguised
like a call to realize

you just made a pass in that reflection
you're fixing your hair or asking questions
you decide
turn it around, the place is a fountain youth, you're squealing
offering advice that sounds appealing
nervous fun

'cept the cheating's in your blood
and the hardest word is love

Let's not starve here today, none of that behavior
(i'm not revealing, unless your feelings are long term)
eating like a princess, I'm gonna save you
stay at mine
And we're carving up the courses we're not playing
(i'm not revealing, unless your feelings are long term)
don't want to hear the swear words you're spraying

I'm not revealing unless your feelings are long term
I'm not revealing unless your feelings are long term
I'm not revealing unless your feelings are long term

It's like a, it's like a call
It's like a, it's like a call
It's like a, it's like a call

    General CommentThis is easily my favorite song ever. I listen to it at least five times a day and i have for over a year and i still love it.

    im not too sure about the lyrics but from the part about lets not starve and eating like a princess and all of the pars about bald and old and fountain youth i think its abot a self conscious woman and a man telling her shes fine.

    General CommentYeah this song is amazing. The whole A.I.H Finger's Crossed album is mindblowing!
    this is the first time i've seen the lyircs and on first glance it seems like it's about focusing on love and the truth in a selfish and fake world.
    am quite possibly wrong tho.

    General CommentOk, so. After rereading the lyrics a couple times, I've come to the conclusion that this involves a car chase, or at least the writer is being chase by police while driving a "'88 red sports car"

    The whole first half of the song has many references, worn tires
    calling police
    old telescope? (I picture a helicopter camera)
    Cramped legs
    Passing in that reflection?

    I dunno, its just a thought. Feedback anyone?

    General CommentAlso I have no idea what that would have to do with the last few lines of the song.

    Maybe I'm just crazy
