‘Lala’
LIFE IN SWEATPANTS Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Here’s what I’m gonna do)
Here’s what I’m gonna do
Wait in a roller coast for you
Playing on adjectives
Don’t know where you get
Are you crazy
Need someone to lay it down
Won’t you lay it down this time
Call two months of waiting round
We’re gonna wait it out this phase
Is there bad news to call
Why’d you not face it at all
Yeah is there bad news to call
Why’d you not face it at all
Nothing to show or tell
And you stay unaware, don’t you
Sending out messages
Not with the evidence
Are you crazy?
Need someone to lay it down
Won’t you lay it down this time
Call two months of waiting round
We’re gonna wait it out this phase
Is there bad news to call
Why’d you not face it at all
Yeah is there bad news to call
Why’d you not face it at all
Is there bad news to call
(Break that thing we built here, break that thing we built)
Why’d you not face it at all
(Bad news to call)




Yeah is there bad news to call
Why’d you not face it at all
