lyrics

You’re My Favorite Plaything

We’re forever stuck in this emotional swirl, so let’s stir it up over again
We’re yanking the drapes right off the rods.Even our breakups are rollicking good fun
is what we seek no attachment required because we’re roman candles popping off at night

Oh! You’re reeling from the aftershock but don’t throw me under the bus
Because I’ve never ever felt this way before
No, I’ve never ever felt this way before

You’re my favorite plaything
You’re my favorite plaything
And nothing even comes close!

Time will tell us if this is to be but for now let’s turn our bikes upside down again
full speed ahead with foresworn regrets. We’re sidestepping land mines of commitment
We dare not make. Why spoil the fun when we’re tiger eyes burning bright in the night

Oh! I’m enjoying the vertigo, but don’t throw me under the bus
Because I’ve never ever felt this way before
No, I’ve never ever felt this way before

You’re my favorite plaything
You’re my favorite plaything
And nothing even comes close!

We’re the string of notes that pop like firecrackers right out of Charlie Parker’s bebop saxophone
