Lyrics:

We’re always told to keep a stiff upper lip,
have our nose and hands clean,
knuckle down and never knuckle under,
la-di-da, dust up and take charge.

I guess we gotta find ourselves in an ivory tower,
full of belts and braces,
not enough minutes in an hour,
and billy-o buckle down,
all the way til the sweet sweet end.

Stop and take a breath, its only a matter of time...

But while the jury’s still out,
and my years short,
I'd rather get loved up.
Wearing my heart on my sleeve,
and I'd rather get loved up.

And what does it really mean
if I find myself on Carey street?
At least I got the ground beneath my feet,
and im not losing my mind on cloud nine.
And you damn well know
that im so gonna take one for the road,
and if its one over eight,
then I guess we’ll just see how it goes.

Play the goat fast and loose,
and pull out all the stops...

But while the jury’s still out,
and my years short,
I'd rather get loved up.
Wearing my heart on my sleeve,
and I'd rather get loved up.

So hold off on the third degree,
whats wrong with me being me?
I'm all about the rack and ruin,
don’t really care what it is you’re doing,
why talk the talk, when you can save your breath?
Ill take a sight for sore eyes,
throw up the smoke and mirrors
cause I love surprises,
shake a leg then break it,
give some love then take it.

Have yourself a look, life is moving on...

But while the jury’s still out,
and my years short,
I'd rather get loved up.
Wearing my heart on my sleeve,
and I'd rather get loved up.
we’ve never had it so good,
and I'd rather get loved up.
Making mistakes while we’re still lucky,
and I'd rather get loved up.
Tomorrow's not coming all that soon,
and I'd rather get loved up.
But while the jury’s still out,
and my years short,
id rather get loved up.
Wearing my heart on my sleeve,
and I'd rather get loved up.
