Anya Marina Shut Up Lyrics

[Verse 1]
Heard about you for awhile, never saw a show
Used to play you on college radio
Now we're face to face, friend of a friend
Got a hundred reasons why this shouldn't happen
You got a hundred reasons why this shouldn't be
And not a single one of them has a thing to do with me

[Chorus]
So just shut up, shut up shut up shut up
Kiss me like you mean it

[Verse 2]
“I’m a man, I’m a man with a plan
That's me in the broken window,” he said “don't you understand?”
Weren't even sure it was me when I walked in the room
Careful son, it's gonna get real hot soon
And I been, I’ve been trying to fight this fight right here by swimming upstream
I couldn't tell you where I’m going, couldn't show you where I been

[Chorus]
Shut up, shut up shut up shut up
Kiss me like you mean it
So just shut up, shut up shut up shut up
Kiss me like you mean it

[Bridge]
So what if we just stop pretending, stop making believe?
What if true love only comes when you're playing for keeps?

[Chorus]
So just shut up, shut up shut up shut up
Kiss me like you mean it
Just shut up, shut up shut up shut up
Kiss me like you mean it

[Verse 3]
Do you know the value of this? can you assess it?
And if you could would you even know how to invest it?
I know a thing about a thing or two
I know I gotta keep a couple things safe from you
If I folded my heart into a pretty paper plane
And flew it cross the Hudson would it come back again?
Would it get crumpled up? would it get caught up
In a crosswind in the sea or would it fly back to me?

[Chorus]
Shut up, shut up shut up shut up
Kiss me like you mean it
Just shut up, shut up shut up shut up
Kiss me like you mean it

[Outro]
Oh, oh, oh
Kiss me like you mean it
Shut up, shut up shut up shut up
