Yes you do...
And soon I will too
You, smile awhile
Yeah, yes you do

And do, make a pass
Oh yeah, at last!

"You only carry the tones you care to use--"
- "Yes you do, yes you do"
"And pass 'em off and smile, and prove--"
- "Yes you do"

"You use your days as seven day vacancies--"
- "Yes you do, yes you do"
"Your passport always flatters you--"
As expected it's true

Do you care to begin?
Then,
Take me in, take me in, take me in
I'll pass into fade

Do you care to begin?
Then,
Take me in, take me in, take me in
I'll pass into your place
On the days between
Yeah...

You, pass us too
Yeah, yes you do
And so,
Take me too
Oh yeah, at last!

    General Commentthe beginning is wrong, pretty sure. it's:

    yes you do,
    yes you do,
    yes you do,
    and soon i will too.
    you smile a while.
    yeah. yes, you do.

    General CommentLyrics updated. I hope the format is satisfactory. I admit that I was stumped by those two lines and now I understand the song better. My thanks to everyone who contributed.

    This is a real catchy song about flirtation. The heroine sees an acquaintance by chance at the airport and they flirt--exchanging phone numbers, sharing the photos from their passports. I think she accuses him of being evasive, "passing" people off. In turn, he interrupts her accusations, again exhibiting more of his trademark evasiveness. And then she challenges him for a date/relationship? (Whoa, is this a scene from those teen soap operas like the O.C?)

    I'm so excited RSR are back together with a new album that's coming out! I can't believe they are still unsigned. I'm been hoping that since lead singer Lisa Lobsinger has connections with Broken Social Scene, her band would be signed to their label, Arts & Crafts... Who's with me?
