2 Cents
Lourdes Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴

2 CENTS

Well I could waste a weekend doing nothing
But save up all my Mondays just for you
Take you out to dinner on a Tuesday
It's a wine and dine for two
Well I could bring you roses on Wednesday mornings
Sleep under the stars on Thursday nights
Tell you how I love you on a Friday
And for the rest of my life

I'm not letting go
It took forever waiting for you in the cold
Let's just take it slow
Forget the world
I'm holding you close

I don't give two cents about what the neighbors say
Darling we're A-okay
They'll get around in time
And don't ever say
We're making a big mistake
We love too much to hate
I'll be yours you'll be mine

You could make me breakfast on a Monday
Kiss me off to work before I leave
Drop by my office on a Tuesday
Bring me something sweet to eat
And you can take me Wednesdays watching movies
Meet me every Thursday at the brew
Wake up to your face on lazy Fridays
Could you stay the weekend too?

You and I both know
That we've been fighting for too long to let this go
Let's just take it slow
Forget the world
I'm holding you close

I don't give two cents about what the neighbors say
Darling we're A-okay
They'll get around in time

And don't ever say
We're making a big mistake
We love too much to hate
I'll be yours you'll be mine
Let all the walls tumble down to pieces
No matter the wreckage
No matter the wreckage
Oh
Let all the walls tumble down to pieces
No matter the wreckage
No matter the wreckage

I see it in your eyes
That all these pages unraveling took you by surprise
You need to realize
That you are worth it
And you should know that

I don't give two cents about what the neighbors say
Darling we're A-okay
They'll get around in time
And don't ever say
We're making a big mistake
We love too much to hate
I'll be yours you'll be mine

I don't give two cents about
what the neighbors say
Darling we're A-okay
They'll get around in time
And don't ever say
We're making a big mistake
We love too much to hate
I'll be yours you'll be mine

Let all the walls tumble down to pieces
No matter the wreckage
No matter the wreckage
Let all the walls tumble down to pieces




No matter the wreckage
No matter the wreckage
