lyrics

Sunday afternoon preparing for my cannonball
From the highest diving stall when you caught my eye
Your tail swinging side to side like a fancy parasol
The most ancient mating call was like morphine straight in my eye

It came on strong like dime store man cologne
I needed a fix, till it made me sick
Well they said don't, but i just did
Sticks and stones, have to live with it
Every stab it felt just like a kiss
I puckered mine, you made a fist,
Then towed the line, and I felt a lift
I never thought i'd end up just like this

The sky began to bloom with a swarm of fireflies
I sniffed the fumes of paradise and then I lost my mind
A midnight stroll with you left me weak in the knees
I could barely breathe when your hand brushed by mine

It came on strong like dime store man cologne
I needed a fix, till it made me sick
Well they said don't, but i just did
Sticks and stones, have to live with it
Every stab it felt just like a kiss
I puckered mine, you made a fist,
Then towed the line, and I felt a lift
I never thought i'd end up just like this

And these wild times I thought they would carry me
I got strung out on all that ecstasy
I know that you barely noticed me
I was a peasant in the presence of your majesty

Now love feels ten feet tall and 3000 miles away
Got straddled by a fantasy till it kicked me in the mouth
Now I drink every bottle on the shelf
How quickly you can find yourself with your face stuck to the ground

It came on strong like dime store man cologne
I needed a fix, till it made me sick
Well they said don't, but i just did
Sticks and stones, have to live with it
Every stab it felt just like a kiss
I puckered mine, you made a fist,
Then towed the line, and I felt a lift
I never thought i'd end up just like this
