lyrics

is this love or is this magic?
make me fawn or hide my face.
find the answers in your fabric,
the primal parts of your reptilian brain.

is this dumb or is this tragic?
rub your eyes til they sparkle and shine.
lend me love or i’ll send you packing,
you've always wanted to get out of van nuys.

let me love you like the first time —
drunk on each other and sober on wine.
let me leave you like the last time —
bruised and broken, dizzy and blind.

you and i, we’re falling fast,
just as fast as the american dream.
we’ve got our love and we’ve got our past,
and neither one appeals to me.

we lied in darkness after the war —
i found it hard trying to picture your face.
there’s some freckles under huge sunglasses,
your eyes are gone without a trace.

let me love you like the first time —
drunk on each other and sober on wine.
let me leave you like the last time —
bruised and broken, dizzy and blind.

we can make it for a while.
