Animal Instincts

i cant see too far down the line anymore
in fact i can barely see my own hands
when i hold em up in front of me
and i've been alone for a long time
thinkin of places i’d rather be

Typically its quiet down here in the evening
the sparkling rays of sunshine they taste like vitamin D
and ive been down here for too long now
wondering whether jewellery suits me

cause diamond rings are for daughters and kings
they dont come along easily

and i dont know what its like to have the world at me feet
but i got a feeling its not all that its cracked up to be

and i feel like i should call her
shes been doing strange things to the beat of my heart
but i realy dont wanna bore her
my weakness is not knowing how to play my part

and i been dealing with some animal instincts
they always get the best of me

hair standing up on the back of my spine frequently
what on earth did you think my reaction would be

so keep sending me grins and slotting me in
and ill go along with this whole damn thing
i put my heart right out on the table when i let you in
and if im lucky, shell slot me in
and its just cheapening this whole damn thing

cause shes got more options than she knows what to do with
so i swallow my pride and ill try until shes through with me
