Owl CitySunburn

So there we were, back home From somewhere inside my head Well bravely I fought off monsters beneath her bed Pillars of post-war books supported my frame of mind While she memorized the pages that I tried to not hide behind She took my hand in hers and whispered her love for me The lantern died that night but we didn't need to see Implying that she's the bees knees and I am the cats meow It's funny how she recalls when I can't remember now But when her smile came back And I didn't feel half as horrible She gave me a heart attack Just because she looked so adorable We both put our sunblock on Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn Yeah, But she got a tan and I got a sunburn I got a sunburn So there we were out there Unaware of where we'd been We kicked off our flip-flops And swung from the rooftops again It's awkward but I'll confess she's all I can think about And it's funny how I recall when she can't remember now But when her smile came back And I didn't feel half as horrible She gave me a heart attack Just because she looked so adorable We both put our sunblock on Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn Yeah, But she got a tan and I got a sunburn Oh afterglow, look out below! We left a trail of dust behind As we parted ways, she held my gaze, And left and imprint on my mind I tried not to cry as we said goodbye And hung the clouds above my town But I she'd a tear when she disappeared Cause now I'm a stranger on the ground (But when her smile came back And I didn't feel half as horrible She gave me a heart attack) We both put our sunblock on Laid on the beach and vowed that we'd live and we'd learn But she got a tan and I got a sunburn She got a tan and I got a sunburn Yeah, but she got a tan and I got a sunburn
