lyrics

YOUR FRIENDS ARE MAKING ART AND I WANNA AND
MY FRIENDS ARE MAKING ARE AND I'M GONNA
YOUR FRIENDS ARE MAKING ART AND I WANNA AND
MY FRIENDS ARE MAKING ARE AND I'M GONNA
SIT AROUND TOWN AND I WONDER WHERE I WANNA BE
BUT THEN THERE'S SOMETHING RIGHT NEXT TO ME
SIT AROUND TOWN AND I WONDER WHERE I WANNA BE
BUT THEN YOU'RE RIGHT NEXT TO ME

WE SIT AROUND AND WONDER WHERE WE CAN SUCCEED
BUT THEN THE TRUTH IS RIGHT UNDER OUR FINGERTIPS IS WHERE WE'RE GONNA BLEED BECAUSE

YOUR FRIENDS ARE MAKING ARE AND I WANNA
STOP AND TURN AROUND AND I GOTTA
TAKE A BREATH YOU'RE MY FRIEND I'M GONNA SAY
NO DON'T YOU
YOUR FRIENDS ARE MAKING ART AND I SAID
I DON'T WANNA LEAVE THE HOUSE SO I'M DEAD
YOUR FRIENDS ARE MAKING ART AND I SAID
I DON'T WANNA LEAVE THE HOUSE AND I'M DEAD

THIS IS A PLACE WHERE WE CAN TAKE IT ALL BACK
WE CAN SIT AROUND AND WE CAN WATCH THE SOUND AND WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON.
WE SIT AROUND AND WONDER WHERE WE CAN SUCCEED
BUT THEN THE TRUTH IS RIGHT UNDER OUR FINGERTIPS IS WHERE WE'RE GONNA BLEED BECAUSE

THERE'S SOMETHING MORE TO ME THAN ALL THESE SONGS
THERE'S MY FINGERTIPS AND THE WAY THAT I MOVE MY HIPS
AND THE WAY WE TURN TO GOLD.
IF I SIT AROUND AND I DON'T TOUCH IT AGAIN I'M GONNA MISS IT AND
MISS IT TOUCHING YOU MY FRIENDS

THIS IS A PLACE WHERE WE CAN TAKE IT ALL BACK
WE CAN SIT AROUND AND WE CAN WATCH THE SOUND AND WE CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT'S GOING ON.
WE SIT AROUND AND WONDER WHERE WE CAN SUCCEED
BUT THEN THE TRUTH IS RIGHT UNDER OUR FINGERTIPS IS WHERE WE'RE GONNA BLEED BECAUSE

MY FRIENDS ARE MAKING ART AND I SAID
I DON'T WANT TO LEAVE MY HOUSE AND I'M DEAD
