[Lover Can You Love Me?]

See her as she walks from the bed
My shirt slipping off her shoulder and her words in my head
Doesn't she look good in my black lines and green shirt
Inspiring the lines on my paper and my newest guitar hook

I want you to know that I didn't sleep at all last night
I want you to know that neither of us were as drunk as we pretended last night
I need you to know just because I've forgotten what I said last night
It doesn't mean I won't remember last night

My memories might be spinning with my vision
But I know a camera that will keep them still
Maybe even prove what you meant when you touched me
And give us the energy to hold each other in control

I want you to know that I didn't sleep at all last night
I want you to know that neither of us were as drunk as we pretended last night
I need you to know just because I've forgotten what I said last night
It doesn't mean I won't remember last night

Here's to Interpol and eyeliner in my half of the bedroom
And vodka and confusion in our veins
I won't let go of my lover if I convince her to stay
I want her here in my space with rings around her eyes
Whispering lyrics under her breath as I whisper lyrics with my lips
I won't give up my lover tonight

I know you can't help but wonder if this is alright
You should be in my arms at this time, I swear it
Step back towards me so there's less distance and less indifference
You should be in my space when you're in my mind

I want you to know that I didn't sleep at all last night
I want you to know that neither of us were as drunk as we pretended last night
I need you to know just because I've forgotten what I said last night
It doesn't mean I won't remember last night

Here's to Interpol and eyeliner in my half of the bedroom
And vodka and confusion in our veins
I won't let go of my lover if I convince her to stay
I want her here in my space with rings around her eyes
Whispering lyrics under her breath as I whisper lyrics with my lips
I won't give up my lover tonight

Lover can you love me for a while
Even for just one more night
I won't give up my lover tonight
Lover can you love me
Love can you love me
Lover can you love me tonight
