SPECTOR - “STAY HIGH”

STAY HIGH (New Version)

[unintelligible]… mojitos
I thought you’d like to talk about me, though.
You pick the film
But I get one vetoed. 
These are the ways that we show our love.

Where we’re going, we don’t need roads
Set menus or two-for-one codes.
Hold my hand like you held his
These are the ways that we show our love.

Stay high.
You know tomorrow is a lie
But baby so are you and I.

In a world that doesn’t add up, we are equal.
Bonding over hating people.
One socket left, I let you charge your phone.
These are the ways that we show our love.

And every parents divorced or divorcing
I’ll stay awkward and you stay awesome.
[unintelligible]
These are the ways that we show our love.

Stay high.
You know tomorrow is a lie
But baby so are you and I.

Stay high.
These hours are seconds in our minds
Two bodies dead behind the eyes.

These are the ways that we show our love.

Stay high.
You know tomorrow is a lie
But baby so are you and I.

Stay high.
These hours are seconds in our minds
Two bodies dead behind the eyes.

SPECTOR - “ALL THE SAD YOUNG MEN”

ALL THE SAD YOUNG MEN

I know
Nothing ever really started with a kiss.
Another night, another town
Another licensed premises. 

I’m getting bored of all these songs I write
And the people I become
Just to stay up late with someone.

I don’t wanna make love
I don’t wanna make plans
I don’t want anyone to wanna hold my hand.
I don’t wanna make love
I don’t wanna make plans.

It begins in the places that we leave behind.
Every year that goes by,
A little less future on our minds.

These girls like to pretend
They can’t feel anything anymore.
Boys break like promises
But only behind closed doors.

I don’t wanna make love
I don’t wanna make plans
I don’t want anyone to wanna hold my hand.
I don’t wanna make love
I don’t wanna make plans.

(All the sad young men)
We’re all beautiful now
Like they were beautiful then.

(All the sad young men)
All the miserable girls
All the sad young men.

Do you like my clothes?
My hair? My conversation?
Did you hear me when I said
You were the inspiration?

It’s all meaningless now
As it was meaningless then.
All the miserable girls
All the sad young men.

I don’t wanna make love
I don’t wanna make plans
I don’t want anyone to wanna hold my hand.
I don’t wanna make love
I don’t wanna make plans.

(All the sad young men)
We’re all beautiful now
Like they were beautiful then.

(All the sad young men)
All the miserable girls
All the sad young men.
All the sad young men.
All the sad young men.
All the sad young men.
All the sad young men.

All the miserable girls
All the sad young men.

SPECTOR - “BAD BOYFRIEND”

BAD BOYFRIEND

I’m worse than a bad boyfriend
I’m a bad artist.
And I’m a bad loser
But look at the way I win.

Show me a good time
And I’ll show you a liar.
Your technology appears
I can’t take you higher.

When you put it to the test
Everyone seems second best
To the image in your head
And you can see it coming…
You can see it coming.

So when you call me and say “come around”
I just tell you that I’m not in town.
I’m turning myself down.

So when you call me and say “come around”
I just tell you that I’m not in town.
I’m turning myself down.

I’m a good listener
When it’s just me talking.
I’ve got a good lawyer
but nothing going on.

My battery’s 10%
Let’s generate content.
Baby, let’s take this viral
Let’s spiral out of control.

When you put it to the test
Everyone seems second best
To the image in your head
And you can see it coming…
You can see it coming.

So when you call me and say “come around”
I just tell you that I’m not in town.
I’m turning myself down.

So when you call me and say “come around”
I just tell you that I’m not in town.
I’m turning myself down.

The light at the end of the tunnel is a chain
Life is short and full of pain.
You always read the last page first
So you’re ready for the worst.
So you can see it coming
So you can see it coming
So you can see it coming
And you just keep going…

So when you call me and say “come around”
I just tell you that I’m not in town.
I’m turning myself down.

So when you call me and say “come around”
I just tell you that I’m not in town.
I’m turning myself down.
