Kangaroo League (Feat. Fitz and the Tantrums) – Capital Cities

Lirik lagu: Kangaroo League (Feat. Fitz and the Tantrums)

I could lift you up

Forty days and forty nights (Wait for a chance to go)
I waited for a girl like you to come and save my life
Recall the days I waited for you (Ain’t coming home)
You know the ones who said, “I’d never find someone like you.

Shut up, shut up, shut up (You were out of my league)
Sit up, sit up, sit up (All the things I believe)
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court
Shut up, shut up, shut up (You were out of my league)
Sit up, sit up, sit up (All the things I believe)
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court (‘Cause you are more than just a dream)

From time to time I pinch myself (To lose my mind tonight)
Because I think my girl mistakes me for somebody else
And every time she takes my hand (We’re safe and sound)
All the wonders that remain become a simple fact

Shut up, shut up, shut up (You were out of my league)
Sit up, sit up, sit up (All the things I believe)
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court
Shut up, shut up, shut up (You were out of my league)
Sit up, sit up, sit up (All the things I believe)
It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court (‘Cause you are more than just a dream)

It’s a kangaroo court
A kangaroo court

If I die don’t wake me
‘Cause you are more than just a dream

We’re safe and sound
We’re safe and sound

I commit the crime of wasting time
Always trying to rhyme
Yes, I am guilty
But don’t misunderstand me
I admit defeat then I move my feet
My history will never be repeated
I won’t ever be repeated

Origami – Capital Cities

Origami (or or or ori o or i ga mi)
Origami (or or or ori o or i)

You got a head full of paper, but baby nothing like origami
Shredded thoughts and make up won’t make up for the missing piece of mind
I saw you look in the mirror, the scenery was suddenly boring

It’s the end of an era
Forever is just a state of mind
You’re last of your kind

I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do
I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do about it (do about it)

You were blessed with precision so I took you to the beaches of Bali
It wasn’t fate but decision, luck was choosing sides
Flip the page to a silver age
Life has treated you kindly

The price you pay is your vision
Collision is highly likely

I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do
I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do about it (do about it)

I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do
I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do about it (do about it)

Origami

I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do
(origami)
I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do about it (do about it)

I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do
(Origami)
I stole your diamonds and gold
what are you going to do about it (do about it)

Patience Gets Us Nowhere Fast – Capital Cities

I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for you
I’m telling you the truth

You are the one that makes it real
Even the sunlight doesn’t feel this good
Whoever said it could?

Patience
Patience gets us nowhere fast
[x2]

I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for us
I’m telling you to trust

The world you see is on our side
Take a chance and take a ride with me
From sea to shining sea

Patience
Patience gets us nowhere fast
[x2]

I don’t want my patience to last

Follow me, follow me somewhere
Follow me, follow me somewhere
Follow me, follow me somewhere out there
[x2]

I want it all and nothing less
I want it all, I want the best for you
I’m telling you the truth

You are the kiss I don’t expect
Remind me never to forget my youth
I’ll leave it up to you

Patience
Patience gets us nowhere fast
[x4]

Vowels – Capital Cities

[Verse 1]
I got something on my mind
But words, they won’t do it justice
I could write it on a sign
But words, they won’t do it justice

[Pre-Chorus]
I need a translator at the tip of my tongue
There’s a freight train of emotion stuck in my lung
I need to get it out, get it out before it’s all gone
So I’ll just speak in vowels from now on

[Chorus]
A-A
O-O
E-E
Ooh-ooh-ooh
A-A
O-O
E-E
Ooh-ooh-ooh

[Verse 2]
I could tell you what it’s like
But words, they won’t do it justice
Spell it out, turn up the mic
But words, they won’t do it justice

[Pre-Chorus]
I need a psychic to read my mind
Get me a Shakespeare to feed me lines
I need to let it out, let it out, I waited too long
I’m only using vowels from now on

[Chorus]
A-A
O-O
E-E
Ooh-ooh-ooh
A-A
O-O
E-E
Ooh-ooh-ooh

[Post-Chorus]
Ahh-ahh-ahh
Ahh-ahh-ahh

[Chorus]
A-A
O-O
E-E
Ooh-ooh-ooh
A-A
O-O
E-E
Ooh-ooh-ooh
A-A
O-O
E-E
Ooh-ooh-ooh
A-A
O-O
E-E
Ooh-ooh-ooh
