Love – Foster the People

Hello, my name is Mark
I play gentlemen’s games
And I can slip through and creepin’
Through the night’s parade
I shake a hand or two
I tip my hat to you
I’m always runnin’ and a-jumpin’
Like a fool who would do
On through the wild, I see her
She sees me
we could be something, it’s exciting
I wanna run away
But I don’t move, I stay
I talk to her, I say
You you you were meant for me
Oh I can’t speak, I think I’m falling in

Love, love, love
It could be a wonderful thing
Love love
It can make you crazy

Sarah, she’s a cougar
Got moves like barracudas
On the hunt for the ones
That look under twenty two years
Got her head up high
High heels that match her thighs
And she be spending lots of money
Her friends, think she’s real funny
She says “hey look at me”
“You will see that I’m a queen”
Got experience to give up
Like you never lived
But all the boys just run
She never has a fun
Oh yeah, but Sarah
She don’t care, she keeps looking
Cause she’s hoping for

Love, love, love
It could be a wonderful thing
Love love
It can make you crazy
Love love love
It could be an incredible thing
Love love
If you have it it’s amazing

Oooh ooh ooh oooh ooh yeah yeah [x2]

I got the fever
Got the fever
Got the fever yeah,
I said she’s got the fever
Got the fever
Yeah, I’m falling in love
He’s got the fever

They’ve got the fever
Got the fever
Yeah I’m falling in

Broken Jaw – Foster the People

Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah
Yeah yeah

I’ve broken every law
All the words come out my broken jaw
I don’t know anything
But then I act like I know everything

Don’t want to talk about it
What do you see when you dream about it?
I had been broke down from my enemies
I’m drifting farther from my memories

And then you take it away

Everyday I’m fighting ’cause I can’t read you
Lost in the moment, then I come back down
Lost in the sight I try to reach out
Just a little bit closer, then I come back down

You tell me, “What’s my name?”
I’m the same I’ve just been rearranged
Smile through a joke inside
Yeah, I’ve been hiding with nothing to hide

Don’t want to talk about it
What do you see when you dream about it?
I had been broke down from my enemies
Just holding a piece of what’s been left of me

And then you take it away

Everyday I’m fighting ’cause I can’t read you
Lost in the moment, then I come back down
Lost in the sight I try to reach out
Just a little bit closer, then I come back down

Pushing me, pushing me, I can feel it, yeah
Just a little bit higher, then I come back down
Climbing over people ’cause I’ve nothing
I’m waiting, I’m waiting around

Sometimes you find yourself waiting,
Waiting for someone to come around
And it’s hopeless, hoping to be found
Then it arrives and says, “You’re perfect, my love”
And I,
I know why
I know why
I know why

But you said, “I don’t know”

You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know, you don’t know” [x3]

You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know”
You said, “I don’t know”

So take it away, yeah
When you find and heal my broken jaw, yeah
Lyin’ near where I slayed my hero, yeah
What you need is hiding in yourself, yeah

Pumped Up Kicks – Foster the People

Robert’s got a quick hand.
He’ll look around the room, he won’t tell you his plan.
He’s got a rolled cigarette, hanging out his mouth, he’s a cowboy kid.
Yeah, he found a six shooter gun.
In his dad’s closet hidden with a box of fun things, and I don’t even know what.
But he’s coming for you, yeah he’s coming for you.

[Chorus: x2]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Daddy works a long day.
He’ll be coming home late, he’s coming home late.
And he’s bringing me a surprise.
‘Cause dinner’s in the kitchen and it’s packed in ice.
I’ve waited for a long time.
Yeah the sleight of my hand is now a quick-pull trigger,
I reason with my cigarette,
And say, “Your hair’s on fire, you must have lost your wits, yeah.”

[Chorus: x2]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

[Whistling]

[Chorus: x4]
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, outrun my gun.
All the other kids with the pumped up kicks you better run, better run, faster than my bullet.

Pseudologia Fantastica – Foster the People

Say you in the morning it seems
As I could chop one of us seeking life in
Through words bend the teeth through the wall
I promised I would rid the world of feral animals

I see you smile with your feet up like a hero’s
We know you’re off to save your reputation
Strong and fearless in your breath just like a hero
Are you shopping in your though while you’re bleeding in the wind

Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my faith?
All the promises you made never realized
Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my strength?
All the promises you made never realized

Feel the air what you like
Another weekend massacre, your opinion
Don’t be afraid of the night, it’s a drag you have to call for me to survive

I see you smile with your feet up like a hero
We know you’re off to save your reputation
Strong and fearless in your breath just like a hero
Are you shopping in your though while you’re bleeding in the wind

Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my faith?
All the promises you made never realized
Why’d you say
Why’d you say that you’d come right back for my love, for my strength?
All the promises you made never realized
