lyrics

i've recently been discovering
all the things that need uncovering
everything's here, and everything's great
but you can't stay and sit and wait, you gotta

come in, in midsentence
and you can move the rest of a line to another song
if you can find some extra time
then everything will be fine

and it's topsy turvy
and it's upside down
put the words at my mercy
and just spin them around
you gotta break all the rules to see all
all the possibilities

why do songs have to be so long
and what's the point of the same old songs
why does that need to be over there
and if i moved it, why would you care?

muddled, mixed and matched and lost and
found a million ways to make a
sounds like sunny streets forever
now let's run away with no umbrella

and it's topsy turvy
and it's upside down
put the words at my mercy
and just spin them around
you gotta break all the rules to see all
all the possibilities

i've got nothing left to say
everything is a-o-great
i wanna go out on a date
with that girl from the interchange

i wanna be somebody new
and i know what i've gotta do
buy a pair of brand new shoes
and dance the night away from my rear view
