Lyrics

Simple Songs

Written By: Jared Salvatore

The first afternoon
Our first carousel
You stole my heart and sat across the room

In bloom
A perfect sketch
I know I'll love all of your details

Your shampoo
Your champagne
The outline of your silhouette and tenets

But I'm mute
And ashamed
I know I'm gonna say something stupid

When did this get so complicated
When did we stop writing simple songs
A "hello, how you doin', what do you love?"
Isn't good enough

Yeah, it's true
We just met
I know I'm still a stranger to you

It's too soon
This two-step
I can't help but feel I'm stepping on your toes

When did this get so complicated
When did we stop writing simple songs
A "hello, how you doin', what do you love?"
Isn't good enough

This anticipation makes us
This anticipation makes us
This anticipation
It makes us

That smile you threw
Sweet caramel
It's almost as if you want me around

But it's cool
Just say when
And I'll fade into the background

Queen Of Broken Promises

Written By: Jared Salvatore

It was Sunday; well, technically Monday
We hadn't gone to sleep yet
We were watching SportsCenter at 5AM
It was our ninth time seeing the top ten

You said you would do everything or nothing with me any day
It seems a theme developed
And grew along the way

We wrote the best-seller
On wasted potential
And did everything for a while
Pipe-dreaming through the night
But now nothing's come since I've been home
Even though you said you would
And you can't know for sure
And I'll never know for good

The queen of broken promises
Holds court in the back of my mind
And I don't mind
At least I don't think so
I'm the king of laying down hypotheses
For the things you never do
But as long as you come this time
I guess I'll forgive you

So I've turned my apathy on
In the last five minutes
Trying to make sure I haven't gone
And taken the waiting and lost myself in it
I've been known to take you over
Storm the castle, steal the crown
But you've blocked me out for now

We wrote the best-seller
On wasted potential
And did everything for a while
Pipe-dreaming through the night
But now nothing's come since I've been home
Even though you said you would
And you can't know for sure
And I'll never know for good

The queen of broken promises
Holds court in the back of my mind
And I don't mind
At least I don't think so
I'm the king of laying down hypotheses
For the things you never do
But as long as you come this time
I guess I'll forgive you

I've been told
That you were out trying to break the mold
And it doesn't mean it's not true
That I'm sitting here and missing you
Is it wrong to assume
That you'd pick up the phone when you're in the room?
Is that too much to ask?

Oh, I'll always forgive you
Who am I trying to fool
As much as you have going on
I'll always wait for you
So leave your scarf on the pull-out couch
If it means that you'll be back soon
To get caught up in bad TV and magazines
And all the royal luxuries

The queen of broken promises
Holds court in the back of my mind
And I don't mind
No, I don't mind
I'm the king of laying down hypotheses
For the things you never do
But as long as you come this time
I'll forgive you
I'll forgive you
You know I'll forgive you
