She knows exactly what to do,
Whenever I'm alone with her.
I can barely make a move
By the time she opens up her eyes
She sings to me at night
She's singing

She knows exactly what to do,
Whenever I'm alone with her.
I can barely make a move
By the time she opens up her eyes
She sings to me at night
She's singing

I know that she barely knows me
And I'm faking love with her
It's like I'm singing karaoke
And I forgot the second verse
But I, can make up my own words
Oh Dakota, I know our love is new.
I barely know ya
I'm falling over you
It's the way you do, the things you do
That make me fall in love with you
Dakota, are you in love with me too?

She's got a little bit of money and a little bit of this
And it's all she needs to live
I got a little bit of love, and a little bit of that
And it's all I have to give
This time I'll try not to show, whoa
That I am not letting go

Oh Dakota, I know our love is new.
I barely know ya
I'm falling over you
It's the way you do, the things you do
That make me fall in love with you
Dakota, are you in love with me too?

I'll show ya, I'll show ya
And you'll know, and you'll know, I'm not letting go

I'll show ya, I'll show ya
And you'll know, and you'll know, I'm not letting go

Oh Dakota, I know our love is new.
I barely know ya
I'm falling over you
It's the way you do, the things you do
That make me fall in love with you
Dakota, are you in love with me too?

Oh Dakota, I know our love is new.
I barely know ya
I'm falling over you
It's the way you do, the things you do
That make me fall in love with you
Dakota, are you in love with me too?

I'm in love with you, are you in love with me too?

    General Comment:This song is adorble. It makes me think of when you first meet someone, and you and that person really click. Like insanely well, and you almost thing that you could be in love w/ that person. Even though it is impossible, bc you just met them, and you barely know them.

    General Comment:This bit right here,

    "It's like I'm singing karaoke
    And I forgot the second verse
    But I, can make up my own words
    Oh Dakota, I know our love is new
    I barely know ya..."

    I just imagine the karaoke bar. This guy is singing a song, he forgets the words and he just decides to sing to her instead. I just think that's crazy romantic. That would win me over any day!

    I know that she barely knows me
    and i'm thinking love with her (?)
    It's like I'm singing karaoke
    And I forgot the second verse
    But I, can make up my own words
    Oh Dakota, I know our love is new.
    I barely know ya
    I'm falling over you
    It's the way you do, the things you do
    That make me fall in love with you

    a little bit of money and a little bit of this
    and it's all she needs to live
    i've got a little bit of love, and a little bit of that
    and it's all i have to give
    this time i'll try not to show
    that i am not letting go

    Oh Dakota, I know our love is new.
    I barely know ya
    I'm falling over you
    It's the way you do, the things you do
    That make me fall in love with you
    Dakota, are you in love with me too?

    i'll show ya, i'll show ya
    and she'll know, and that i'm not letting go

    Oh Dakota, I know our love is new.
    I barely know ya
    I'm falling over you
    It's the way you do, the things you do
    That make me fall in love with you
    Dakota, are you in love with me too?
    well i'm in love with you, are you in love with me too





    i thinkkk these are the correct lines, besides that line that i'm iffy about
    i love this song :) dont like it much by on the FOB mix tape, i think it sounds very.. fueled by ramen, which i don't dig
    but i loved it live and i like it acoustic!

    General Comment:This is a pretty self-explanatory song. He's falling/fallen in love with this girl named Dakota even though he barely knows her. :) very cute song.

    General Comment:it's "fake in love with her" not "thinking love"

    how does that make sense?
