lyrics

I'll be at your door with one bright smile and two black eyes
You've known the whole time but you'll feign surprise
Don't act surprised, don't act so surprised

Why do they find me cold and hard
Like I’d fall in love with an empty bar?
Like I’d fall in love with an empty bar?

And at every turn, you find allegory
Well, we could go all night until morning
Or we could go all night (and see if we can’t outrun morning)

I'll be at your door with one bright smile and two black eyes
You've known the whole time but you'll feign surprise
Don't act surprised, don't act so surprised

And I’ll be in your arms with one bright smile and two wide eyes
You've known the whole time but you're still surprised
Don't act surprised, don't act so surprised
