You’ve marched
To your pomp and your circumstance
You’re starched you’re a formal affair and I
Can’t breathe
You’re smart you know all those big words
And their meanings
But you aren’t very good at remembering
Small things

You say that you love me but I ask you
How much
So you spread your arms wide till behind you
Your thumbs touch
And you hold that position as I add it all up
Oh, in cold hard mathematical terms you’re
In love

So hold me, don’t think too hard about it
Would common sense allow it?
You wait too long and you’ll lose me
Just do it when you get the urging
Oh its not rocket surgery
When you know you love someone it’s easy

Your book heavy head is so weighted with
Deep thoughts
As you lay in my lap and we struggle with
Small talk
Try writing it down but you trip on
Writers block
So we just “hmmm mmm mmm”
On and on and on and on

We’re a pair you’re smart I’m romantic
Kiss like you care your mouth is mechanical
Words are air; over my head they blow
So blink once if you like it
And blink twice if you don’t
Three times, if you love it
And then just keep them closed

Were a pair you’re smart I’m romantic
Kiss like you care your mouth is mechanical
Words are air and over my head they blow
So blink once, once if you like and blink twice
Twice if you don’t three times, three times if you love
It and then just keep them closed

(Chorus X2)

    General CommentThe instrumentals and words in this song are so awkward, but it works because it's about being awkward. I think what she's trying to say is people that are book smart sometimes don't know how to handle personal relationships, and vice versa.
