The record is broken,
And these cheap words you're hearing. (We all know you've heard it all before)
They keep our souls aligned,
I wonder how she tastes,
It tastes..
My ego never felt so good,
Her dress fell faster
And we all know what comes after.

I feel this night has begun,
This fight isn't won,
Don't get me wrong.

Is there anyone who can make me see?
Help me breathe.
Is there anyone who can make me feel alive inside?
Sink or swim is all I know tonight,
Well take me to the bed, it feels so right.
Wake me up.

The slow short breathing,
That I placed my hands,
On your waist.
Don't tell me to stop..
It calls me out.

I feel this night has begun,
This fight isn't won,
Don't get me wrong.

Is there anyone who can make me see?
Help me breathe.
Is there anyone who can make me feel alive inside?
Sink or swim is all I know tonight,
Well, take me to the bed, it feels so right.
Wake me up.

You honestly believe,
You meant something to me.
I thought you knew the game,
Collect your shit, deal with the shame.
No tears to make it stop,
The rain go right on top.
The walk from here is long,
So think about how I did you wrong,
How I.. Did you wrong..

Take me to the bed.
Because it feels so right,
Feels so right.
Take me to the bed.. Tonight,
Tonight.

Now we move,
So much faster than before.
Straight to my room,
And baby you knock down the door.
But I'm still waking up,
In these self inviting whores..
These self inviting whores..
Made me bring out the sun.

Your body's played its role,
It's ruined my game.
And now I can't believe,
I've done it.
But somehow I still feel,
But I still feel,
So far gone...

    General CommentThis is what I have:

    "The record is broken
    And these cheap words you're reading
    (You don't know, you've heard it all before)
    They keep our souls alligned
    I wonder how she tastes
    (It tastes)
    My ego never felt so good
    Her dress fell faster
    And we all know what comes after

    I feel this night has begun
    This fight isn't won't
    Don't get me wrong

    Is there anyone who can make me see
    Let me breathe
    Is there anyone
    Who can make me feel alive inside
    Sink or swim is all I know tonight
    Well take me to the bed
    It feels so right
    Wake me up

    The slow short breathing
    I place my hands on your waist
    Don't tell me to stop
    It calls me out

    You honestly believe
    You meant something to me
    I thought you knew the game
    Collect your shit
    Deal with the shame
    No tears'll make it stop
    Claim your heart attack
    The world for now is gone
    I think about how I did you wrong
    
Take me to the bed
    Because it feels so right
    Take me to the bed tonight

    Now we move
    So much faster than before
    Straight to my room
    And baby you knock down the door
    But I’m still waking up
    And these self inviting arms
    Make me bring up the time
    Your body's played its roll
    It's ruined my game
    And now I can’t believe
    I'm done and
    But somehow I still feel
    I still feel
    So far gone…"

    General CommentPretty sure it's, 'is there anyone who can make me see the air we breathe' 'no tears to make it stop' and 'and baby you knocked down the door'...jonny has the most amazing voice but it's so hard to figure out what he's saying sometimes! haha<3

    General Comment"They keep our souls aligned, I wonder how she tastes.
    It tastes."

    "Is there anyone who can make me see,
    Help me breathe."

    "This should be,
    That I play my hands on your waist."

    "Well you should deal with the shame,
    No tears to make it stop,"
    After that I hear something about "the rain".

    "Take me to the bed,
    Because it feels so right,
    Feels so right.
    Take me to the bed tonight,
    Tonight."

    "Straight to my room,
    And baby you knock down the door."

    "Your body's played it's role,
    It's role in my game.
    And now I can't believe,
    I've done it."

    General CommentThere are a lot of mistakes in this one...
    This is what I have:

    The record is broken.
    And these cheap words you're hearing,
    (We all know you've heard it all before...)
    They keep our souls aligned.

    Her dress fell faster,
    and we all know what comes after.

    I feel this night has begun.
    This fight isn't won.
    Don't get me wrong.
    Is there anyone who can make me see, help me breathe?
    Is there anyone who can make me feel alive inside?
    Sink or swim is all I know tonight.
    Well, take me to the bed, it feels so right.
    Wake me up.

    With slow, short breathing,
    I place my hands on your waist.
    Don't tell me to stop.
    It calls me out.

    But I'm still waking up.
    And these self-providing arms,

    Song MeaningI actually think this song is about people looking for love through prostitution, and some are still longing for the real thing, and some feel absolutely no remorse. I also think the title says a great deal, it's also about people trying to get to others just for sexual reasons, and how it feels right, but it's actually wrong.

    General Commentfor some reason it sounds like he's saying in the end
    "i still feel so fucked up"
    instead of..
    "i still feel so far gone""
