When I watched you get undressed that was my Achilles heel
Then you took my cigarettes so what else will you steal?
Do yourself a favour, start before you tear yourself apart
Recent events make this heart unwind
And I’m aware I am a southern witch, but I’m predisposed to your kiss
When I’m with you I leave the dark behind

Do you believe in fun? (I surely do)
Do you believe in love? (I do if you ask me to)
I feel better hanging out with you
And I was dreaming (you’re always dreaming)
I found a reason (baby don’t start teasing)
Bright Eyes here’s to looking back at you

And when the sun gets up I’ll bring you marmalade
And in the afternoon we’ll drink lime in the shade
Somehow I have found myself lost in this circumstance
But you go to great lengths to tell me this is not a romance
What’s the hurry don’t you see?
The best part’s in not knowing
We can take our time
You don’t have to worry

Do you believe in fun? (I surely do)
Do you believe in love? (I do if you ask me to)
I feel better hanging out with you
And I was dreaming (you’re always dreaming)
I found a reason (baby don’t start teasing)
Bright Eyes here’s to looking back at you

    Song ComparisonI love Allo Darlin' + this song and all, but is it just me or does this song (or at least the vocal line) sound a lot like Nothing to be Done by The Pastels? (another amazing song btw)
