Lyrics:

She can disarm me when I look at her.
Effects me like nobody can.
The kind of nerves that I don’t get a lot.
And, I don’t think that’s bad.

That’s how I know that I could fall for her.
And never walk again.
I stutter when she says hello to me.
Just how I was back when.

I met the girl of my infatuation
It’s not flattering to be this crushin’
Not for nothin’
Lost where I was and
Now I’m blushin’

I should speak or something
Blood is rushin’
But you’re the Robitussin
To my cough
I’m drowsy and I just can play it off

Ooh but you’re taken just as usual
Rude love awaken to a sleepin pill
Cruel thoughts, and maybe, say we
have to wait around to elaborate, baby

Funny how this situation all worked out
I was minding my own business
At a new business i didn’t know about

I was thinking of my money
I wasn’t thinkin of myself
I wasn’t looking for a girlfriend
And that was going pretty well

I spent my nights just playing music
I spent my days behind a desk
I didn’t spend too much on sleeping
Or anyone I’m sleeping with

And then a girl caught my attention
But I’m the one who ended trapped
Cause she already had a boyfriend
Im out here looking like a sap

For this girl of my infatuation
It’s not flattering to be this crushin’
Not for nothin’
Lost where I was and
Now I’m blushin’

I should speak or somethin’
Blood is rushin’
But you’re the Robitussin
To my cough
I’m drowsy and I just can play it off

Ooh but you’re taken just as usual
Rude love awaken to a sleepin pill
Cruel thoughts, and maybe, say we
have to wait around to elaborate, baby

I’ve broken up relationships before
And know a thing or two about it on the other side too
We’ve all been through this before

But when I see you, I see differently than any other thing in recent history for me
Yeah I believe you could be more

Than just the girl of my infatuation
It’s not flattering to be this crushin’
Not for nothin’
Lost where I was and
Now I’m blushin’

I should speak or somethin’
Blood is rushin’
But you’re the Robitussin
To my cough
I’m drowsy and I just can play it off

Ooh but you’re taken just as usual
Rude love awaken to a sleepin pill
Cruel thoughts, and maybe, say we
have to wait around to elaborate, baby
