Lyrics

Album version

If I stay the night
Will I fall in love?
If I stroke your hair
It's gonna hurt so much
Stranded in the Kalahari
Will you share your flask?
If I stay the night
Will I fall in love?

I'm all jacked up
Over you
I'll bury diamonds
Just for you
But why, why, why do my flowers always die?
Why do they die?
I'm all jacked up
Over you

You see me standing there
Without a shred of clothes
And if you break away
From the vein of gold
Come my beautiful alien
Touch me with your light
But if you stay the night
Will I fall in love?

You're the sun that I'm orbiting
I burn in your heat
Supernova and cosmic dust
You spawn galaxies
We'll sleep together, sleep together, sleep forever
We'll sleep together, sleep forever minus one
Say those forbidden words to me
Eagle girl

Remix

[Rivers]
If I stay the night
Will I fall in love?
If I stroke your hair
It's gonna hurt so much
Stranded in the Kalahari
Will you share your flask?
If I stay the night
Will I fall in love?

You're the sun that I'm orbiting
I burn your heat
Say those forbidden words to me
Eagle girl

I'm all jacked up
Over you
I'll bury diamonds
Just for you
But why, why, why do my flowers always die?
Why do they die?
I'm all jacked up
Over you

[Nadya]
If I lose my mind, can you lend me yours?
If I have no clothes, can I take yours?
If I go blind can I use your eyes?
I'm all jacked up, let me leave your life.
Don't check or measure me, hear me.
Don't judge or destroy me, feel me.
I'm trash, your treasure, your homie, your enemy,
??? and just leave me

[Fitz]
Strike a match
Cut the lever
Burn too fast
And the Sun will crash
And the Sun will crash

If you and I can figure out a way
To cross the wire, short circuit the day
I'll be ???
