lyrics

I might think twice
Before I burn out in LA for you
Yeah I might

Would you say you adore every ghost?
The classic dapper dashing kind
Up on the screen projecting silvery fog
Frozen celluloid of mine
Recites impossibly clever lines

And you inch just a little just a little bit closer
Like a posh LA girl tipsy on a mimosa
Now you take your time when the clock can afford it
The needle found its groove
Let’s play it in slowmo

(Step, step, step)
Step to a fever dream
(Step, step, step)
Matter of fact toss back the sheets
(Step, step, step)
Spent ’97 cruising through that video store
Every night I’d rewind to that opening score

Why do you cry when the credits roll by?
You’ve seen this play out a thousand times
Quote famous final words from chipped china dolls
He’s got that leading man jawline
He’ll be a star till he’s 65

And you inch just a little just a little bit closer
Like a posh LA girl tipsy on a mimosa
Now you take your time when the clock can afford it
The needle found its groove
Let’s play it in slowmo

(Step, step, step)
Step to a fever dream
(Step, step, step)
Matter of fact toss back the sheets
(Step, step, step)
Spent ’97 cruising through that video store
Every night I’d rewind to that opening score

When Pa didn’t make it
I skipped out on his wake
And I buried the thought on the side of the road
In Southern California I feel anything but golden
The lifestyle I chose means I miss out on these moments
And play to empty rooms where the patrons couldn’t care
If I drank Elvis’ blood and declared myself his heir
The disco lost its shine to the daily blended grind
Snapped the high E string, my voice cracked
Now I might

Think twice
Before I burn up in LA for you
Yeah I might

(Step, step, step)
Step to a fever dream
(Step, step, step)
Matter of fact toss back the sheets
(Step, step, step)
Spent ’97 cruising through that video store
Every night I’d rewind to that opening score
(Step, step, step)
Monochrome actress theme
(Step, step, step)
Smear it with paint the pastel gleams
(Step, step, step)
Spent 27 coasting past those bankrupt stores
There’s no need to rewind in a virtual world
