Do you ever do a thing or two just to wait?
When you don’t have a thing to say
I’ll try to take this slow, but I don’t know
I don’t want to wait
A time to look, at for the folks who try to say
That we don’t know till we’re old
That’s how it goes
But I think I know

Please pick me I’m a terrible mess
You know I just can’t help it, and I just got to confess
You do what you do; well I can’t have a rest
So still I’m gonna do everything
I’m going to make it right
I’m gonna make it good
I’m gonna do it alright
I’m gonna write it down
I’m gonna make a sound

Cause I’m doing everything for you
Because I love to be near you
So, this just takes me away to place where I’m happy
I’m doing everything for you
Yeah you know that I adore you
And I just can’t take it anymore

You know I got to know

So I’ll be making up things for you to see
Like romantic lights rounding Italy
Cause you deserve the very best
And I’ll never rest
So I’ll be sure to pass that test
And I just smile and say whooooaaaa
Cause you just got to know
That every time you stay
Never goes away
Your reach is to the stars
And shines like the clouds and lights up this whole world (that’s right)
And bless your heart; you’ve made me happy again
It’s been so long and I’m sick of pretending
You’ve been light in the brain in my head
So still I’m going to do everything
I’m gonna make it right
I’m gonna make it good
I’m gonna do it alright
I’m gonna write it down
I’m gonna make a sound

Cause I’m doing everything for you
Because I love to be near you
So, this just takes me away to place where I’m happy
I’m doing everything for you
Yeah you know that I adore you
And I just can’t take it

Cause I don’t want to, wait for another day
I can feel this is right
I don’t want to make this go on for too much longer
And you’ve got a ring less finger
And I can go buy a ring right now
Well, actually I don’t have any money
But that’s ok, cause I can figure it out

I’m doing everything for you
Because I love to be near you
So, something just takes me away to place where I’m happy
I’m doing everything for you
Yeah you know that I adore you
And I just can’t take it anymore

I’m doing everything
Yeah you know I’m doing everything

    General Commentdoes nobody own a physical copy of this CD to see that it clearly says "the brain in my head" in the lyric booklet?

    this song is playing at my wedding in about 100 years when that time comes.
    "bless your heart, you've made me happy again" cutest love song ever? i think so.

    General CommentI typed out these lyrics as I was listening to the songs, and if you’ve ever listened to the Rocket Summer you know there are times you can’t quite make out exactly what Bryce is saying, so some lines are just my best guess. But the majority of the lyrics are right. If you think he sings something other then what I typed, let me know and I’ll listen to the song again and if I think your right I’ll change it (if I can).

    General CommentThis song is good. I've got a few of the other tracks, don't want to get to many and spoil the album for myself, but this is actually my least favorite, not because this is bad..but the others are amazing.
    Just...amazing.

    General Commenti think he says

    "you've enlightened the pain in my heart"

    but i can see how it seems confusing cuz it seems to me like he says the brain in my heart but that doesnt make sense.

    ya good song

    General Commentis it possible he's saying

    "you've lightened the pain in my heart"?

    like, the person he's singing about has taken
    away a bit of the pain or heartache or whatever?
