Candyfloss


I'm the boy that looks excited
I'm the boy that's gonna fall apart
Candyfloss, I lie to myself
I'm the boy that eats his heart out

I know I should be more careful
I know I should watch where I've been
Candyfloss and she's a safe cracker
She kissed me first and then broke in

We slip and slide on the stay-together landmine
I make my mind up to never be myself
And every time I make a rhyme
I live my life for someone else

Ooh whoa

She's in the kitchen with bitter diamond drunks
(She's in the way)
I'm on the sofa (I'm in the way)
Hoping she leaves that punk cause

I'm the boy with the poetry power
I'm the boy, smells like flowers
And every time I make a rhyme
I live my life like I wasn't invited

Ooh whoa

She's in the way
I'm in the way

I'm the boy that looks excited
I'm the boy that's gonna fall apart
Candyfloss, she kissed me first
And I'm the boy, don't get me started

I know I should be more careful
I know I should watch where I've been
Candyfloss, she's a safe cracker
She kissed me first, then broke in

Ooh whoa
