I’ve been hanging around you for sometime
I’ve been dancing around you for sometime

Can you feel my weight
While we sip the day away
Can you feel my weight
While we drink the day away

Let’s get drunk on ourselves
Let’s get drunk on ourselves

Ooh and then it happened
Ooh and then it happened
Ooh you split me open so tenderly
Ooh oh split me so perfectly


This isn’t love between us
Just a moment we share
Don’t pretend that you care
But I like the way you move me
For some time now
I like it in this place
No
I love it in this place


Ooh and then it happened
Ooh and then it happened

You said you would kill me
Hands wrapped around my neck
I feel so alive


Ooh and then it happened
Ooh and then it happened

You said you would kill me
Hands wrapped around my neck
I feel so alive

    General Commenthow come no one comment on this song?
    this is part of free compilation from ghostly intl and adult swim, which mean you can download directly from their site.

    i guess this song is about a man who met a woman in some placen, then their hang out together and "then it happened"..

    althought they dont share love between us just uhmm.. you know..

    General CommentAgreed, this is my favorite song on the "Ghostly Swim". It's a feel good song about just a moment between two people who get drunk and get close but don't want to make anything more out of it than what it is. "Lets get drunk on ourselves". I love it! The song's pretty straightforward until the end:

    "You said you would kill me, hands wrapped around my neck, I feel so alive." My personal interpretation is that they both just get so into it that they completely let loose. The confliction between her saying she'd kill him and him feeling so alive shows how sex can be different things to two people. If you look deeper into the song, it almost seems like she is the one saying that it's just sex and she doesnt want to get attached, but he does. He's the one who's been "hanging around you for some time", she splits him open. He tells her to not pretend that she cares, which almost sounds sarcastic: like he's trying to justify it to himself. So in the end, even though just hooking up with no meaning kills him, he feels alive just for the moment that he's doing it.

    How's that sound for an explanation?
