lyrics

My oh my it’s been awhile since I

Have seen your pretty smile

Now I’ve seen your face and that smile ain’t there


Why oh why must we build a bridge out of toothpicks

If we know it’ll just come crashing down

And kill all of the citizens


And the snow is turning to slush

And I think that we wake up too much

Why can’t we just sleep through the spring

I’d give it a try if my phone would just stop ringing


My eyes are closed but I’m not sleeping

I’m not dead yet, no I’m just thinking

About where this will go and where we will end up

I want it to be grand and it’s probably screwed up


I’ll map out my personal timeline

We’ll see what I’ve done and see what I’m doing

If history repeats itself my life is over

Cause all I’ve done is started things and wait till I’m older wait till I’m older wait till I’m older well I’m getting older now


I don’t know how

I can be so selfish but i

Think that romance is dull and gray

And I wanna be doing better things with you


And I don’t know how

I can’t see the forest through all these damn trees

Wouldn’t it be funny if they’re what I was looking for


My eyes are closed but I’m not sleeping

I’m not dead yet no I’m just thinking

Bout where this will go and where we will end up

I want it to be grand and it’s probably screwed up


I’ll map out my personal timeline

We’ll see what I’ve done and see what I’m doing

If history repeats itself my life is over

Cause all I’ve done is started things and wait till I’m older wait till I’m older wait till I’m older well I’m getting older now

Excuse Me, Princess

Excuse Me, Princess is a disorganized group of younglings from Duluth, Minnesota who play loud garage power pop with an occasional folky jazz song thrown in there. The band started in 2009 when Jack and Sam started playing coffeeshops. After the addition of Greta, Kallie, and Ben, they got a recording offer from So-TM Records, and released their newest record "Stop the Flow" after two tours. ... more
