Uncalm, uncalm, uncalm
listen to the drummer, just listen to the strings
listen to the DJ just rappin' and things
once I get a message from you, I get all edgy
my minds racing but you know I'm not ready, uh, I say
for you, baby all our dreams trickle through
we are back in your teenage bedroom
Salvador Dali honeymoon, for you

It's like you and me on Plymouth Rock
embarking on a journey that I never thought
would happen to me so effortlessly
sparks flying, your laughter is a symphony
spring, what a little moonlight can do
soon the summer sun is on you
all the while we don't hear the news or feel blue

On the scales of desire your absence weighs
more than someone else's presence
I wanna kiss reason goodbye today
I wanna show it's purple essence
on your lips baby it'll fade away
return your natural iridescence
on the scales of desire your absence weighs
more than someone else's presence

You make me feel uncalm and I think I like it
make me think of a song that I could not write yet
melodies create themselves, I'm just a conduit
you make my heart accelerate and I'm on to it
for you baby there's so much that I will do
to be near the sweetness on you
funny everything seems so new when with you

On the scales of desire your absence weighs
more than someone else's presence
I wanna kiss reason goodbye today
I wanna show it's purple essence
on your lips baby it'll fade away
return your natural iridescence
on the scales of desire your absence weighs
more than someone else's presence
uncalm, uncalm, uncalm

    General CommentIt's about a guy who's head-over-heels in love with a girl...and he's never experienced anything like it before. It's such a sweet song.

    General CommentThis song is "our" song for my girlfriend and I for so many different reasons, each line has a seperate meaning, and it was crazy because when i first showed it to her we were putting up Salvador Dali posters in her bedroom.... "back in your teenage bedroom, salvador dali honeymoon." by the way anyone know what exactly a salvador dali honeymoon is?

    General Commentit's about that feeling you get when you're around someone you love, or even like for that matter. how you get all jittery and everything.
