Hands Down

I love this song, maybe it's just the hopefully side of me, or the romantic side, but I love these lyrics:

"My heart is yours to fill or burst
To break or bury
Or wear as jewelry
Whichever you prefer"

 
Breathe in for luck
Breathe in so deep
This air is blessed
You share with me

This night is wild
So calm and dull
These hearts they race
From self control

Your legs are smooth
As they graze mine
We're doing fine
We're doing nothing at all

My hopes are so high
That your kiss might kill me
So won't you kill me
So I die happy

My heart is yours to fill or burst
To break or bury
Or wear as jewelry
Whichever you prefer

The words are hushed
Let's not get busted
Just lay entwined here
Undiscovered

Safe in here from
All those stupid questions
"Hey did you get some?"
Man, that is so dumb

Stay quiet
Stay near
Stay close, they can't hear
So we can get some

My hopes are so high

That your kiss might kill me
So won't you kill me
So I die happy

My heart is yours to fill or burst
To break or bury
Or wear as jewelry
Whichever you prefer

Hands down this is the best day I can ever remember
I'll always remember the sound of the stereo
The dim of the soft lights
The scent of your hair
That you twirled in your fingers
And the time on the clock

When we realized it's so late
And this walk that we shared together
And the streets were wet
And the gate was locked
So I jumped it
And I let you in

And you stood at your door
With your hands on my waist
And you kissed me
Like you meant it

And I knew
That you meant it
That you meant it
That you meant it
And I knew
That you meant it
That you meant it

Love DC...and this song is such a hopeful and pretty song. That's the best line, too. Such a true statement when first entering a relationship.

I love that band, but on completely different reasons. To me their best song is: The Places That You've Come to Fear the Most.

They fly under the radar, very underrated band =)
