The Matches – Future Tense lyrics

Can you believe, our parents once were young?
Before we all had to wear oxygen, yeah
Well I bet their lungs were full of toxins then
But what did they really know?
(What do do do you know?)

She said, "I'll fall asleep 'fore I fall in love
(What do do do you know?)
Your stories bore me, boy let's make something up"
(Right now, yeah!)
She pressed inside my shirt then gave me a shove
Said, "What do you know?"
(What do do do you know?)

You're all that I know
All that I know
All these stories, maybe for me
But they're all I know
Yeah, they're all I know, ohh
Will you like me? Oh oh oh
Will you like me?

She said, "I won't breathe to see retirement
(What do do do you know?)
And I don't believe in no environment"
(That's history!)
She cracked a smile, I just admired it
"What's next?", I asked, but she just laughed
(What do do do you know?)
Ha, I get a laugh, I get a laugh
But I'm not joking, you think I'm joking?
But I get a laugh, always a laugh
Will you like me? Oh oh oh
Will you like me?

Leave the present tense
Face the future tense
Oh oh, will you like me?

I said, "tomorrow's your wrapped box to give
(What do do do you know?)
The present is a just torn open gift"
(What choice in that?)
She said, "Why don't you go elope with
The sound of your own voice?"
(What do do do you know?)

The sound of my voice, the sound of my voice
Leaves me silence, I don't like it
The sound of my voice, the sound of my voice
Oh, oh, will you like me?
(What do do do you know?)
Oh, will you just like me?
Oh, oh, oh, hey, will you like me?
