Oh I like you so very much so much in fact I gotta wake you up
It’s not that I have words to speak
I just wanna see you looking at me
In a way, that states
In an hour when the sun comes up
We’re gonna put on our shoes we’re gonna shake the dust
Open the door with your brand new key
We won’t be afraid of being sweet
to ourselves
Or anybody! anybody else!

Oh I miss you so very much so much in fact i gotta call you up
It’s not that I have news to bring
I just wanna make your telephone ring
So it shows and you know
In a week when I fly back home
We’re gonna jump in bed and be all alone
you’ll make biscuits and I’ll make tea
We’ll curl up close and then fall asleep
To the sound… of no one else no else around

And if Ive learned anything at all
In this short life of mine (it’s this)…
If you hear that joy has come to town
Track it down, take a picture and tape it to your eyes

Oh I love you so very much so much in fact I'm gonna switch it up
I'm gonna take this room that I built for fun
And burn down the walls in front of everyone
So they see, you and me
Dancing in our sleepy clothes
With two big smiles and a bowl of hope!
That we’ll drink down like ginger tea
The heat will help us forget everything
That you and I, that you and I have seen

And if Ive learned anything at all
In this short life of mine (it’s this)…
If you hear that joy has come to town
Track it down, take a picture and tape it to your eyes

    General Commenti think that Marc Bianchi gives off a whole new vibe under xoxo, panda than he does under her space holiday. true, it is the same man with the same experiences but i feel that he expresses them differently.

    General Commenti agree with erbylikewhoa. i was totally thinking this music was somewhat shins-esque. hah.

    this is my new favorite song. it makes me feel like getting up and clapping (as he tells us to do, ironically). not to mention, i love the lyrics as always.

    he's genius, for lack of a better word.

    General CommentAgreed that it sounds like the shins but it also sounds like a mix of The Animal Collective. I kind of find this funny because the main singer of animal collective signs stuff xoxo, panda.

    Either way Marc Bianchi still stays true to his truthful yet touching lyrics. Not many artist these days have the bullocks to actualy be themselves and say whats on their heart. which in my opion is the deffenition of an artist.

    Its just good to hear someone singing about what love really is and not only the good times in life but also the hard times. rather than sleeping with every girl he meets and just not giving a flying eff to the morality of the youth listening.

    and yes bakeoffs he is a genius for lack of better words

    General CommentThis song makes me so hopeful for things to change and for the future and for distance of all kinds to be bridged at one point sooner or later. It's so refreshing to hear him singing such a hopeful tune.

    General Commenti agree with erbylikewhoa, i immeduialty thought of the shins (a favorite of mine) when i first listened to this song.

    i love this song, the overall message, and its tune. i think it's such a refreshing, genuine.. oh, and for lack of a better word, cute song!

    her space holiday is one of the most under-appreciated bands out there today for sure!

    Memoryi went to a her space show recently. and marc biachi dedicated this song to my girlfriend and i. he said we looked really happy and cute. at the end of the show, i met him at the merch booth, and being too drunk, i didn't have much to say, unfortunately. but he told my girlfriend that we "looked so happy out there" and that he'd never been that happy.

    if he only knew how wrong he was.
