Backseat Goodbye – 32 Ways To Make You Smile lyrics

You told me 32 ways, to make you smile
I did 31 within the first hour
You stood amazed in your delighted shoes
Bewildered but willing; didn't know what to do
So I grabbed your cold hand
Pressed it to my beating heart and said,
Isn't it neat?
How our bodies tick and we can move our feet?
Whenever and however we please!

You stared blindly while I waited politely, in the doorway by our school
Some cars passed and I noticed someone was singing "Us" by Regina Spektor
You know how I had a crush on her.
I know you don't like grey skies, we know our multiplication tables
You got straight As, while I was writing fairytales
And looking out window seals asking why, the sunshine liked my eyes and kissed my cheek,
When it knew I was in love with the moon, and of course with you.
Well, I sped it up 'cause you don't like slow songs
You're more of the literal kind yeah
You're more like the ocean's waves, you get closer at the end of the day.
When you know I can't see your face,
When you're sure I'm already lost
Love is oh so lovely, but it also comes with a cost
