spend a lifetime lyrics – the rifles

as i walk up a street
i lift my head up and i face you
you look good, and you smell sweet,
which makes it harder to embrace you
if i was back in primary
in a playground i would chase you
but i’m not, i’m just me
and though you might be what i’m looking for

but my head won’t function properly
and my feet don’t move in time
and next week i’ll forget probably
but today you blow my mind

and as we talk, i go all red
and i’m feeling like a schoolkid
all these thoughts that fill my head
i bet i say something stupid

just play it cool and keep it calm
and remember what your mother said:
now boy, just use your charm,
but all that good advice gets lost somewhere
cause my mouth just won’t work right today,
all my head is full with lines
if only i could find the words to say,
we could spend a lifetime

spend a lifetime, spend a lifetime


spend a lifetime, spend a lifetime
