lyrics

You're gettin feisty now
For all the appropriate little reasons
But I just won't give up hope on you
You've got such sycophants
In elephants this tourist season
But your pachyderms' memories won't do

This idealization won't fade
But my sick fascination
Is retrograde
Because

You're gonna backtrack
Gonna backtrack
Back to me
Said you better watch that
You better watch that your
Your tone
Your tone with me

My doctor told me,
"Stop overanalyzing
all your heartbeats."
I told him, "I know,"
But I'm not sure
It's such a drag to dwell on
every single little side street
But I sense that it might be half the cure

This idealization won't fade
But my sick fascination is retrograde
Because

You're gonna backtrack
You're gonna backtrack
Back to me
You better watch that
You better watch that Your
Your tone with me
Your tone with me

I'm moving back to the city
Cuz that's where I belong
But it's not nearly so pretty
To warrant a love song

This idealization won't fade
But my sick fascination
Is retrograde
Because

You're gonna backtrack
You're gonna backtrack
Back to me
You better watch that
You better watch that
Your
Your tone

Repeat chorus

Your tone with me (outro)

Old pals from the infamous "Poutine Circuit", the dynamic duo decided it wise to form a hot new teen combo. The band is now poised to bring their smooth adult contemporary and tiki-infused sounds to the bowling alleys and seedy cocktail lounges of North America. ... more
