Quick, get in,
Then wait for the door.

For a few seconds we'll do
What we've been waiting.

What I've been waiting
All night for.

As each floor passes,
I wish more and more,
That you lived at the top floor.

Two million feet tall
And you lived at the top floor.

Oh, now I realize more and more
That I would love to be the one,
Oh, I would love to be the one
Who makes you happy...
Or feel anything at all.

We've never even said a single thing out loud,
But I won't hold that against us.

Even if you were here,
We'd still let our eyes do the talking.

I find myself always forgetting this thing that should be involuntary.

You gotta breathe,
You gotta breathe,
You gotta breathe,
Oh, it's so cliche how you make my thoughts stop.

Oh, I would love to be the one,
Oh, I would love to be the one
Who makes you happy...
Or feel anything at all.

Oh, I would love to be the one,
Oh, I would love to be the one
Who makes you happy...

Quick, get in,
Then wait for the door.

    General CommentHewlett gets it's name from the hall at UNC-W with the same name.
    I talked to the band about it and Chase said:
    "Hewlett is indeed about the dorm. The elevator in specific. The entire song is about an impromptu, drunk make-out session i had in that elevator one night freshman year."

    :)!
    so there's the story. from one of the amazing boys, himself.
