"Rooftops and Invitations" as written by and Chris Carrabba....
The first time you looked at her curves you were hooked
And the glances you took, took hold of you and demanded that you stay
And sunk in their teeth, bit your heart and released
Such a charge that you need another touch, another taste, another fix

[Chorus:]
She just might get you lost
And she just might leave you torn
But she just might save your soul
If she gets you when she gets you any closer

She leads you up, points out skylines and stars, steeple chases in bars
And took your keys and demanded that you stay
The city longs well for rooftops and invitations
All lace in secret places, she moves you to touch with her hands

[Chorus]

Under the cold sheet, where the welcomed touch of skin and skin will meet
Out on the inside where a girls prize is at the tip of your tongue
Where every move and each impulse brings clarity
To stay like this is everything you'll ever need

She just might get you lost
And she just might leave you torn
But she just might save your soul
But she gets you any closer

She just might get you lost
And she just might leave you torn
But she just might save your soul
But she gets you any closer

Can you believe your eyes

    General CommentThe version I have ends with "can you believe your eyes" instead of "to be continued...". Hmmm.
    Well I can definately see why they named this new album Dusk and Summer, many of them are about summer and things happening in summer. Like this song, Currents and Stolen... and there's probably more. It's nice that this CD comes out at the beginning of they summer, I want to just lie on the sunny beach and listen to it.

    General CommentThis song's harmonies are the best of the album, especially with "she gets you any closer" at the end of the song.

    General Commentgood job on the lyrics... a few things... the itunes liner notes provides some lyrics... they're pretty helpful:
    its 'steeplechases and bars...'
    and at the end of what you have it continues:
    'under the cool sheet
    where the welcome touch
    of skin and skin will meet
    hot on the inside where the girl's prize is
    at the tip of your tongue.
    when every move and each impulse
    brings clarity
    to stay like this is everything
    you'll ever need.
    she just might get you lost
    and she just might leave you torn
    but she just might save your life
    is she gets you any closer.
    can you believe your eyes?'

    absolutely gorgeous song. anyway, hope thats helpful.

    General CommentI think that this song is about the new romance, the first verse being when they first met, and he instantly fell in love, and then the second being the first kiss and he was instantly hooked with her.

    i think the chorus is about how after he knows that it might not work, as " she just might get you lost" this may mean that he'll get left in the moment, or she'll leave him and he'l fell lost and alone. and then "she might just leave you torn" meanin shes gonna leave him and break his hear. and "she might just save your soul" as in actually it could go worng, but there is a chance she could be his saviour.

    i think the third verse is about how she takes him upstairs to his room, and the fourth being how it becomes obvious that she wants sex, and she puts his hand down her underwear. im not sure if "lace and secret places" means that he knows its wrong, or if its new to him, so he feels like a kid, with the "secret" place.

    the next verse is them both being naked and having sex. i think the last two lines are about him going down on her, with "hot on the inside where the girls prize is, at the tip of your tongue" being his tonge on her g - spot.

    the next verse is to do with him just wanting to stay like it forever and is pretty self explanatory. then the chorus again reiterates how he knows it could be good or bad.

    and the last line, "can you believe your eyes?" is him in shock at what has actually just gone on.

    i think that the next song on the album "so long, so long" is the morning after the night before, ie, this song.

    an amazing song tho, DC never fail to impress.
