"Million Years" as written by and Alex M T Ebert....
I love you like grave danger
Like moon shining disguise
When I wake up with your makeup
And spread blush cross the sky

Like a meteor crush
I'm gonna tell the world
Been a million years full of tears
But I found my girl

My notion of love devotion
Was a corrosion of mind
Then come cupid and now I'm stupid
And I feel it's just fine

Like exploding face
I'm gonna tell the world
Been a million years full of fears
But I found my girl

It's a spun tongue
It's a holy shit
It's a loud cry from the heart
It's a live death
It's a big breath
It's a no more we're apart

Like a rainbow crash
As we bow and swirl
Been a million years full of tears
But I found my girl

Like exploding sun
Let the light unfurl
Been a million years full of fears
But I found my girl

    General CommentI believe the second line is actually "like moonshine in disguise"
    ... everyone loves moonshine!
    I love this song. I think it's pretty obvious what it's about. It's just so cute and very sincere.

    My OpinionGenerally I dislike swearing in songs but I actually like the use of 'holy shit' in this song.

    General CommentLyrics should be:

    I love you like grave danger
    Like moonshine in disguise
    When I wake up with your makeup
    And spread blush cross the sky

    Like a idiot crush
    Imma tell the world
    Been a million years full of tears
    But I found my girl

    My notion of love devotion
    Was a corrosion of mind
    Then come cupid and now I'm stupid
    And I feel it's just fine

    Like exploding fates
    Imma tell the world
    Been a million years full of fears
    But I found my girl

    It's a spun tongue
    It's a holy shit
    It's a loud cry from the heart
    It's a live death
    It's a big breath
    It's a no more we're apart

    Like a rainbow crash
    As we bow and swirl
    Been a million years full of tears
    But I found my girl

    Like exploding sun(s)
    Let the light unfurl
    Been a million years full of fears
    But I found my girl

    I don't know for sure, but I think the uncredited line is:
    "And ya feel ya say(me) way" which is a slurred way of saying "And you feel the same way"

    General CommentI love the "holy shit" in here too. It's what pops into my mind when I see something incredible or overwhelming, like the feeling you get when you find the right one.
