Oh a devil got in me
Ohh split hearts unevenly
Mmm just like Virginia
Cuz the honey in ya
Is a hornet on a sleeve
Oh we could have kept it fun
Ooh you play hard I play the pun
Put my fingers in your buttons
Oh like kissing cousins
Making fabrics come undone

Oh honey let me calm down
And lay your weary head
Oh sister won't you calm down
And leave some things unsaid
Because a restless heart
(ooh your restless heart)
Is gonna burst before it's dead

So keep it in the cash
Ooh will it grow or motor crash
Cuz we're not like love calls barking
But something's spin and sparking
Pushing hard against a dash

Sugar won't you calm down
And let me run about
Oh sister won't you calm down
Before this all goes south
Because a reckless heart
(ooh your reckless heart)
Is a head in a lion's mouth

I'm gonna play these strings
And play them against your heartbeat


Oh so she performed this action on the heart
incisions decisions doesn't fall apart
Oh so she performed this action on the heart
incisions decisions doesn't fall apart

    My OpinionLove this song. It is very sensual, summery, and like the rest of their songs, the music matches the lyrics perfectly.

    Minor corrections to the lyrics:
    "...but my fingers in your buttons are like kissing cousins..."
