can i take you home? lyrics – breathe carolina

“can i take you home?”

said her name was romance, i said i’m impulsive.
swallowed my nerve and ate my dignity.
i think i’m making progress, she’s faking naive,
all this false innocence amuses me.

i don’t mean to rush, or be obvious
but like a magnet you keep pulling me.
into fixation, this mad compulsion.
don’t wanna stop. will you come with me?

can i take you home?
open yourself up to me and surrender.
can i take you home?
we lock out the world and we’ll stay here forever.
say it to me, three letters.
fall from your mind to your mouth.
can i take you home?

am i second guessing?
am i asking too much?
one simple word will set the record straight.
betrayed by clenched hands.
wear your smile like a mask.
your tightened fists, they give your heart away.

i don’t mean to rush, or be obvious,
but my impatience keeps on dragging me
into temptation, this mad compulsion.
and tell me now, will you come with me?

can i take you home?
open yourself up to me and surrender.
can i take you home?
we lock out the world and we’ll stay here forever
say it to me, three letters.
fall from your mind to your mouth
can i take you home?

said her name was romance, i said i’m impulsive.
betrayed by clenched hands.
wear your smile like a mask.

can i take you home?
open yourself up to me and surrender.
can i take you home?
we’ll lock out the world, and we’ll stay here forever
say it to me, three letters.
fall from your mind to your mouth.
[x2]

can i take you home?
