This song may be about grape kool-aid.


You can wear jeans if you want.
A dress just invites a waiter's stares
and I'm a modest man.
you look just fine in jeans.
Your ass looks fine in jeans.

Put on your flat-bottomed shoes
'cause the click of high-heels on pavement
is anything but the sound
of love between a boy
...and a lady

And the taste of your lips
is like fake grapes
it's the taste of purple drinks
left on the porch in summer.
It's that kind of taste
It's that kind of warm.
and it's so, so

We'll run down the street
pavement pounding through our feet
With our mouth open wide
til yr purple tongue touches mine.

Then we'll sugar crash
into the picture window
in front of your house

like a pair of birds
with flattened heads and broken necks
like there really is
nothing between us
but our clothes.

We'll lie on the floor
watch the ceiling fan spin
and swear
that we'll never do this again
but we will.
but we will.

It's not completely my fault that feelings sound so melancholy. I promise.
