Lyrics

Ginger Ale

Written By: eMKeh (Monica Komlos)

let's get out of here
before they turn on the lights
this bar is starting to spin
and everyone's looking alike

and they cut me off
so i'm drinking a ginger ale
and they cut me off
so i'm thinking it's time we bailed out of here

you look so beautiful
in the back of the taxi cab
and i'm so glad we left
now i have you all to myself

and as i reach for the keys down in my coat
you changed your mind- you said you wanted to go home- alone

let's get out of here
before they turn on the lights
this bar is starting to spin
and everyone's looking alike

and they cut me off
so i'm drinking a ginger ale
and they cut me off
so i'm thinking it's time we bailed out of here

when we pull up to my place
the meter's ticking away
you were holding my hand before
now you don't even look my way

and as i reach for the keys down in my coat
i get out of the cab and walk myself
up to my door- alone

let's get out of here
before they turn on the lights
this bar is starting to spin
and everyone's looking alike

and they cut me off
so i'm drinking a ginger ale
and they cut me off
so i'm thinking it's time we bailed out of here

Routine

Written By: eMKeh (Monica Komlos)

Just about when the night turns into day
The lamplights flicker, and we’re still
Hidden away in bed

Underneath the sky as it starts to brighten
The rays seep through the curtains making
Our eyes widen

Is it really time to get up?

I feel like making the day up
Making believe that we’re in control of it
I feel like lying in bed and making believe
That we have control of it
Over this straight life

It’s so routine
So predictable

We’re standing behind the line
I won’t steal your ideas if you don’t steal mine

All we have to do is prove it
Why on earth just can’t we do it
All of the effort that goes into it

All for what, all for not
