"STD Dance" as written by Alex Ebert, Joey Waronker, Justin Meldal-johnsen, Oliver Goldstein and Tim Anderson....
Freedom's the source of the lightning sparks when you're dancing
Freedom's the shine, let it peal your mind when you're dancing

Freakin' out in (on) the sun
This is time on (on) the run
This is life that tear me down
This is life this Sunday kite
That's life with anything,
Girl just start pretending
You're the stuff
You're the mind
Just get on down
Stop the time

This Saturday night
Appetite
This is what you can be
Somethin' like
Dynomite
This is what you can be
Do it right
Escalate
This is what, like candy
Oh, you're so good
You're so good
You're so good
You're so...

Freedom's the shine, let it peal your mind when you're dancing
Freedom's the shine, let it peal your mind when you're dancing

Just show me you're love
Just show me you're love
Hey, just show me you're love
Just show me you're love

Spotlight
Blue suede shoes
Give a fuck
Attitudes
Hot night
What to do
Run down mansion
Laural canyon
Kill your time
Genocide it
Warpin' space
Back to grace
Hey, take your place
Do the movement
You'll kiss bliss
When you are ruin
Connecting things
Connecting bings
Unified front
Expanding sun
Toasted
Before you know it
Let go
That soul you're holdin'
Pressure builds
Now you're exploding
Flashin' light
Bliss tonight
Pressure builds
Now you're exploding
Out your mind
Out of sight

Freedom's the shine, let it peal your mind when you're dancing
Freedom's the shine, let it peal your mind when you're dancing

Just show me you're love
Just show me you're love
Hey, just show me you're love
Just show me you're love

Freedom's the source of the lightning sparks when you're dancing
Freedom's the shine, let it peal your mind when you're dancing
Freedom's the source of the lightning sparks when you're dancing
Freedom's the shine, let it peal your mind when you're dancing

Just show me you're love
Just show me you're love
Hey, just show me you're love
Just show me you're love

La-da-dee-down

Freedom's the shine, let it peal your mind when you're dancing
La-da-dee-down

    General Commentthe grammatical choice is interesting, because it sounds the same, but the lyrics would change meaning depending on if it is

    just show me you're love
    or
    just show me your love


    HMMM

    hehe

    General CommentI don't even think he's saying "your." It just sounds like, just show me love.

    General CommentSo few comments. Weird.

    No, there's definitely another syllable in there between "me" and "love." And Luxamnesiac makes a good point.

    I think the song is a plea for a friend (I see the friend as a girl) to let go and dance. To dance so freely that lightning sparks from you and your body shines. "Just show me your love" seems to hint that a boy is asking a girl to dance with him, and there's something intimate about it. And that very long, catchy verse ("Spotlight, blue suede shoes...") sounds like a description of their night out dancing.

    It's all about the DANCE! Gotta love it.
