3:45
Tribeca Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I cry a bucket of tears and I pour it over myself I'm so sweet.
They say I'm sick but I know I'm not, I'm just hit by the thing called love
3:45, 3:45 it's 3:45 when she calls
I try to taste her with eyes wide shut but the feeling grows trough the skin.
She's coming in, she's the one good thing, She's Serpico she's the thing
3:45, 3:45 it's 3:45 when she calls
When she says "I love you," when I lose all of my control and bursts out in tears right there on the phone
