"Can You Discover?" as written by Wes Miles and Rostam Batamanglij....
Oh baby baby babe,
How long am I supposed to wait
I think about you nightly
Oh can you tell i'm losing sleep

Oh what am I supposed to do?
It's hard to stay cool
When you smile at me
And I get nervous every time you speak

My bed's too big for just me
When you turn your eyes
I promise I won't care
Oh baby baby babe

Oh baby baby please
My heart sinks to my feet
Oh baby baby do you know
I think about you nightly

My bed's too big for just me
When you turn your eyes
I promise I won't care
Standing by your sister fair

Oh baby baby please
I think about you nightly
Oh baby baby babe

When I look into your eyes
I tend to lose my thoughts
Don't forget your stare
Oh what was that you said
Would you let me know
'Cause I can't read your mind
Oh can you tell
I can't even explain

Oh baby baby babe
Oh baby baby bae
Explain

    General CommentA beautiful recreation of the Ra Ra Riot original "Can You Tell." Since the lyrics are essentially the same, this song seems to be a cheery plea for some attention from the girl that the singer is so desperately trying to reach out to. An original fantastic song with added synth and a groovier, dancier vibe that makes the song that much more happy and perhaps even, optimistic.

    My OpinionDefinitely my favorite song off their LP. I agree with sentimentalist that it has an almost optimistic feeling despite the kinda desperate lyrics.
