Cavetown – Paul Lyrics

Play this song
[Verse 1]
Oh, the last time I saw Paul
I was horrible and almost let him in
But I stopped and caught the wall
And my mouth got dry
So all I did was take him for a spin
[Verse 2]
Yeah, we hopped inside my car
And I drove in circles ’round the freight train yard
And he turned the headlights off
Then he pulled the bottle out
And then he showed me what is love
[Chorus]
I’ll be your morning bright goodnight shadow machine
I’ll be your record player, baby, if you know what I mean
I’ll be your real tough cookie with the whiskey breath
I’ll be a killer and a thriller and the cause of our death
[Verse 3]
In the blossom of the months
I was sure that I’d get driven off with thought
So I swallowed all of it
As I realized there was no one who could kiss away my shit
[Chorus]
I’ll be your morning bright goodnight shadow machine
I’ll be your record player baby if you know what I mean
I’ll be your real tough cookie with the whiskey breath
I’ll be a killer and a thriller and the cause of our death
[Verse 4]
Paul, I know you said that you’d take me any way I came or went
But I’ll push you from my brain
See, you’re gentle, baby
I couldn’t stay, I’d only bring you pain
[Outro]
I was your starry-eyed lover and the one that you saw
I was your hurricane rider and the woman you’d call
We were just two moonshiners on the cusp of a breath
And I’ve been burning for you baby since the minute I left
