      could be wrong but thought "and your cassanette (?) dvd or swinging in the 70s " was "and your cousin left a dvd of swinging in the 70s"

      nothing made me feel cooler than listening to this song with my windows open and my music blaring on the road, because today, it showed the world that i was a backer. regardless if they knew how amazing it was or not. <3

      1.) Now I lay me down to sleep.

      2.) And your cousin left his DVD of swinging in the 70s.

      3.) Loneliness-less. ( I think. )

      4.) Icecaps are all melting, then we're gonna die.

      Yay! It sounds amazing! I wonder if this opens the record?

      This is what I have of the lyrics so far:

      [good night, lay me down to sleep]

      do you wanna dance?
      do you wanna fight?
      do you wanna get drunk and stay the night?

      [going rest now, let's go please] [?]

      do you wanna dance?
      do you wanna fight?
      do you wanna get drunk and stay the night?
      do you wanna smoke till our throats are sore?
      make out and then talk and then make out some more?
      do you wanna dance?
      do you wanna fight?
      do you get drunk and stay the night
      do you wanna know all the things i do
      where i'm all alone and thinking about you
      do you wanna?
      do you wanna?
      do you wanna?
      do you wanna?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?

      do you wanna go back home?
      your animals are all alone
      there's a chicken waiting on the stove
      and your cassanette dvd or swinging in the 70s
      do you wanna go back home?
      check your messages and charge your phone
      are you really sure you wanna go
      when you can do it with a rock star, do it with a rock star?

      wait. WAIT. WAIT!
      i'll be fine in a minute
      wait. WAIT. WAIT!
      i'll be fine in a minute
      fine in a minute!

      I don't want your body just a part to listen to, it makes sense
      all the practice in the world
      won't get me bitter lonliness

      do you wanna dance?
      do you wanna fight?
      do you wanna get drunk and stay the night?
      do you want to see all my cavities?
      talk about the crisis in the Middle East?
      do you wanna get really terrified?
      [?]
      do you wanna cry?
      i can make you cry
      do you wanna hit me baby one more time?
      do you wanna?
      do you wanna?
      do you wanna?
      do you wanna?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?
      do you?

      do you wanna go back home?
      your animals are all alone
      there's a chicken waiting on the stove
      and your cassanette (?) dvd or swinging in the 70s
      do you wanna go back home?
      check your messages and charge your phone
      are you really sure you wanna go
      when you could do it with a rock star, do it with a rock star?

      wait. WAIT. WAIT!
      i'll be fine in a minute
      wait. WAIT. WAIT!
      i'll be fine in a minute
      wait. WAIT. WAIT! (do you wanna go back home?)
      i'll be fine in a minute
      wait. WAIT. WAIT! (do you wanna go back home?)
      i'll be fine in a minute
      fine in a minute
      fine in a minute
      fine in a minute
      fine in a minute
      fine in a minute
      fine in a minute
      fine in a minute
      fine in a minute
      fine in a----

      This all just gets better and better, if this is a sample of what we can expect on the album it is going to be mind blowing. Can't wait to hear you live in June. Love you Amanda.xxxxx
