I've doubled my pace
For half of your smile
I'm tiger-posed
I'm doggy-bagged
Crime or offense
Don't make you cry
I love your heart
I've combed your eyes
I see it in your feet
Racing to mine

And I like to dream
I'm caught in the sky
I hang by the fears that
Staple my life
The winter was long
The mountains were high
The fire burns blue
As I wave my goodbyes
This isn't the town where
I wanna die

I'm worth the time
In all sincerity
I'm honestly happy
With you

So let's make it fast
Like lightning through the cars
But just like the sixties
We won't get very far
I'm into looks
But I'm also into books
I see it in your smile
I see it in your smile

    General Comment:This is off of the new album..Dave sings it with Emily from Metric. At first I wasn't that crazy about it, but it's starting to grow on me. It sounds closest to anything off of Logic from all of the new stuff, in my opinion.

    I think he's asking someone to make a decision, like he's been waiting around and is ready to move on with his life, and he's asking her to come with him.

    General Comment:this is such a pretty song!! my favorite parts are

    As I wave my goodbyes
    This isn’t the town where
    I wanna die

    So let’s make it fast
    Like lightning through the cars
    But just like the sixties
    We won’t get very far

    General Comment:The lyrics on the album insert say "I'm with the times" instead of "I'm worth the time," and I'm pretty sure that's what Dave/Emily were singing, but "I'm worth the time" definitely makes more sense.

    This song brings me the image of a man and a woman meeting and feeling exactly the same way about each other, understanding each other completely. So they talk to each other about their fears and dreams, about what they see in each other, and they decide to be together.

    If I'm right, Dave/Emily's duet was the perfect way to do this song. If I'm wrong, their duet was still perfect.
