Best Friend (Lyrics + Songs)

[Verse 1]
I wanna show you what you do in my dreams
There’s nothing better than you over me
I could’ve married you yesterday
But you’re married in another way

I shouldn’t tell you what I’m feeling inside
I’m never smiling by the end of the night

[Chorus 1]
Cause you’re my best, best, best, best, best, best friend
You’re my best, best, best, best, best, best friend
You’re my best, best, best, best, best, best friend
Just my best, best, best, best, best, best friend

But I wanna
Yes, I do
But I wanna
With you

[Verse 2]
She kinda reminds me of “Jessie’s Girl”
Her accent even has the same damn swirl
It kinda feels like we’re from different worlds
I hope she realizes that I’m from this Earth

[Chorus 2]
Cause I wanna
Yes, I do
Cause I wanna
With you

But you’re my best, best, best, best, best, best friend
You’re my best, best, best, best, best, best friend
You’re my best, best, best, best, best, best friend
Just my best, best, best, best, best, best friend

[Bridge]
I kinda know that we are meant to be
But you keep looking here and there
And far away from me
And far away from me

[Chorus 3]
Cause you’re my best, best, best, best, best, best friend
You’re my best, best, best, best, best, best friend
You’re my best, best, best, best, best, best friend
Just my best, best, best, best, best, best friend

But I wanna
Yes, I do
But I wanna
With you (2x)

[Chorus 4]
So let’s not just stay best, best, best, best, best, best friends
Best, best, best, best, best, best friends
We’re not best, best, best, best, best, best friends
We’re not best, best, best, best, best, best friends

I don’t wanna
With you
I don’t wanna
That’s the truth (2x)

Atlantis (Song + Lyrics)

[Verse 1]
I don’t think that we should sink this
Me and you are not Atlantis

You’re saying not to fight this
But we could be so much more
We could be so much more

[Verse 2]
I don’t think that we should stop this
We’re not meant to be … a myth
I’d rather find a way to rescue this
Too many things get lost at sea

I don’t want that to be us
And I don’t want you to leave us
I just want you to believe in us
So we don’t become history

[Verse 3]
I don’t know if we should lose this
There’s no guarantee that … we’ll resurface
Things that go under on purpose
Don’t always come up for air

I’m know all about Atlantis
But I hope we can save this
I’m not sure about Atlantis
But I think we’ll resurface

Sweetie

I tried:
Pavlova from Australia
Leivasupp from Estonia
Wuzetka from Poland
Nanaimo bars from Canada
Gulab jamun from Pakistan
Kashata from East Africa
Crema volteada from Peru
And still:

I can’t find anything sweeter than you

Pull (Song + Lyrics)

For Sirishty Thakur

[Verse 1]
Was in a hole when I first met you
There was no sun and there was no truth

I didn’t know that words had pull
But, uh, you made believe in something new

The way you love’s like a postcard view
And, uh, I never want to stray from you

I didn’t know your words had pull
But, uh, you lift me up to the penthouse, boo

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re nothing, you’re nothing
You’re nothing that’s bad
You’re something, you’re something
That I have to have … That I have to have

[Chorus]
You lift me up
You got you wings
You lift me up
You’re angeling

You lift me up
I hear them sing
You lift me up
I’m leveling

You life me up
You spread your wings
You lift me up
You’re angeling

You lift me up
I hear them sing
You lift me up
I’m leveling

[Pre-Chorus]
You’re nothing, you’re nothing
You’re nothing that’s sad
You’re something, you’re something
That I have to have … That I have to have

[Chorus]

No

I won’t wish you a Happy New Year
Since I wished you a Happy Birthday
                                                                And
You never replied

(Perhaps you just forgot it was your day?)

No, I won’t wish you a Happy New Year
But if the world was ending
                                               Only
You know where I’d be

The Anatomy Of A Hug

Through an endless cycle of embrace
I will go beyond all lovers
And spin your world in reverse

Travel back to a time before myths
Reimagine the universe as the shape of our kiss

Slow

        Down

The

       Earth

Until the core and mantle flake

Whileholdingtheatmospherewithinreach

Atlas held the celestial spheres on his shoulders
Now you hold them on your hips
And spin my world in reverse

Sirishty (Song Lyrics + Song)

[Verse 1]

Shakespeare would’ve written about you
If he had the chance to

Newton would question all the laws
If he saw you up against the stars

Socrates would have so many questions
Buddha would call you perfected perfection

Darwin would rethink evolution
Moses would have another commandment

Galileo would change his mind
Realize the sun revolves around your eyes

[Chorus 1]

Sirishty
Do you know what you would’ve done to da Vinci?

Sirishty
Do you know what you would’ve done to Ghandi?

Sirishty
Do you know what you would’ve done to Genghis Kahn?

Sirishty
Do you know what you do to the gods?

[Verse 2]

Sirishty
If you were from another time
There’d be no water to wine

Sirishty
If you were from another time
There’d be no atomic bomb

Sirishty
If you were from another time
There’d be no Beethoven or Bach

[Chorus 2]

Sirishty
Too bad you can’t travel back
Too bad you can’t travel back

You’d be the most sung about
You’d be the most written about
You’d be the most talked about
You’d be the most
