You look nice alright
and I like the way you nod after everything I say
like it actually means something
to you

And I like your record collection
Townes and Jens with a hint of Rickie Lee
And you’ve cleaned up the bathroom, made a really nice soup
but a bit too much sci-fi in your shelf with DVDs

But there’s some things you need to know about me:
I’m weak right now, real weak right now
I need proof before I dare to open this heart
so I prepared a quiz for you:

Would you freak out if I said I liked you?
Do you walk the line?
Is your IQ higher than your neighbour’s?
And is it very much higher than mine?

Can you sleep when I grind my teeth?
Do you look away if I slob when I eat?
Will you let me be myself?
Can you at all times wear socks?
because I’m still scared of feet

Do you talk in the middle of Seinfeld?
Do you read more than two books a month?
Do you get racist or sexist when you’ve had a few?
Is it fine if I make more money than you?

Have you slept with any people I work with?
Is there anyone you’d rather wish I’d be?
Do you still keep pictures of old girlfriends?
Are they prettier than me?

And if I’d fall, would you pick me up?
If I fall, will you pick me up?

    General CommentI love this song! I think it's about a girl who's recently been hurt and let down by a guy, and now she's too afraid to lay out her heart again. So when she meets this new guy who seems alright, she still can't open up because she's afraid of betrayal, so she basically asks him whether he would stick by her. So cute<3

    General Commentsuch a great song! the lyrics are really on the spot!
    basically she's been hurt before and now meets up with this new guy and she has all these silly demands when all she really wants is for this guy to stick around even when things in her life get bad

    General CommentUBER song seen her(them) live twice, you just got to love this music :D

    Some corrections though I’m weak right now, so weak right now.

    And if I’d fall, would you pick me up?
    And if I'd fall, would you pick me up?

    and after Can you at all times wear socks?
    because I’m still scared of feet

    there should come a "And if I’d fall, would you pick me up?And if I'd fall, would you pick me up?"

    General CommentWhen she says "Jens", is she referring to Jens Lekman? Because if so, I'm going to dance in a fit of joy. I LOVE BOTH OF THEM

    General CommentI'm pretty sure it says Lykke Li instead of Rickie Lee. (Especially considering that they're both swedish)
