There were roman candles and Catherine wheels outside
Inside, all was deadly quiet
Corner cut, medium weight and I arrive late
I caught you spelling baby names with sparklers on your patio
And you didn’t know, that I’d been writing letters to other girls
In shaky, shaky handwriting

We swooned like 50’s housewives
Buzzing like a hive
The room is spinning faster than a 45

And we come alive
We come alive
We come alive

Well you were an octopus and I was an orang-utan
And everybody in there saw the way that we carried on
But everyone who knows me, knows I make up all these stories

We swooned like 50’s housewives
Buzzing like a hive
The room is spinning faster than a 45

And we come alive
We come alive
We come alive
We come alive
We come alive
We come alive
