i am fred astaire lyrics – taking back sunday

“i am fred astaire”

i’m under the *ssumption
that i’m gonna be the one thats leaving you
tonight, tonight…
well i flipped every switch
that i could find on my way out just to upset you more
(just to keep you busy) just to make you angry (just because you were right) just because you were…

all tired scream safe haven,
let’s get this out and on the table…

fast forward to say four o’clock,
i’m keeping time, i’m holdin’, we’re always holdin’,
(we’re always holdin), we’re always holdin, holding out…
and that’s what got us here in the first place,
you should have never come here alone
(you should have never bothered at all), bothered at all…

scream older and wiser, still filled with resentment
we get it, we get it…oh (i haven’t been happier since)
older and wiser, still filled with resentment
we get it, we get it…oh, bree ann (i haven’t been happier since, i haven’t been happier, not since.)

well five o’clock the floor caught fire with footsteps (my footsteps)
and spread like a disease to the door
(i’m stuttering through it but i hear it) iii hear its good tt-to stick to what you know
and you know a whole lot of this, it all could have been avoided when
you were courtside for this nightmare,
well since then i got myself come and listen…

older and wiser, still filled with resentment
we get it, we get it…oh (i haven’t been happier since)
older and wiser, still filled with resentment
we get it, we get it…oh, bree ann (i haven’t been happier since)

i haven’t been happier since (bree ann)
i haven’t been happier since (bree ann)
i haven’t been happier since (bree ann)
i haven’t been happier not since…

well, it used to take so much more (i used to, i used to too)
it used to take so much more (i used to, i used to too)
i used to, i used to too…
