Rex Orange County

I'm not afraid, I can be myself and I
Hope you can be yourself as well 'cos I can make you feel alright
And there was so much happiness that we were still yet to find
I said that you can call me Alex baby, welcome to my life

But don't you worry, don't you, don't worry girl
No, I'm not sure if I'm into you
The last time that you checked I was probably so sad and confused
I don't know, know, I don't know what you like
But if you're looking for something new
I know somebody that you could choose

What about me?
What about me?
What about me and you together?
Something that could really last forever
What about me?
What about me?
What about me and you together?
Something that could really last forever

If all my friends wanna be in her bed
Then I begin to wonder why
I guess that I'd be lying to myself

'Cos who the fuck
Would be dumb enough
To reject an offer?
Oh what an offer?
Now two two ten one five
Couple hours can change your life
Frankie saying oh what a night?
What a night?
What the fuck is a girlfriend?
Imma need advice
Maybe I should go outside
So I could get a fucking life
I made a friend and she spent the night now...

I'm in love and she remains in my life
I'm back and we spoke in Europe
I need insurance
On my emotions
I can't get hurt again
Fuck the past, fuck them, they all made me sad
And I had no time to prepare to face my fears
I guess that it's time that I dried these tears

But if I could just be happy by the end of this song
But if by the time you hear it you are already gone
And it didn't go to plan
Then why should I continue in this life
When there's no one around to be the one who makes me smile?
So far everything's good
Oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh
So far everything's good
Oh oh oh
No no no
No no no no no oh ow

Want the crowd in tears when they hear this
Is that so wrong?
