Lyrics:

Verse 1

Leaving Home
Two rights, a quick left
Heavy head thinking 'bout cooling off
In the creek past the dead end

Sunburn
A few scrapes, grass stains
Summertime pealing off our clothes
Hop the fence neighbor just complains

Chorus

Don't point your finger at me
Just felt time gaining on me
And I found a shortcut
Don't try to coast by the scene
Or spend your whole life waiting
I found a shortcut, shortcut

Verse 2

Downstairs
A new pub, a new scene
Heavy head thinking 'bout wandering off
Nothing seems to ever break clean

Stumbling home
Two lefts, a quick right
Even now I can find my way
Screaming "Something In The Night"

Chorus

Bridge

I know why you said yes
It's no big secret
I diagnosed your complex
Don't deny your essence

And I know why you said please
When I found you on your knees

Chorus
