about

Quirky and fresh, this song takes a slightly tongue-in-cheek stab at that "unhealthy part" of a new relationship when you're trying to strike a balance between giving your all and maintaining your sense of self.

For this track, we stripped away the guitar and drums... and started from scratch. Now it's all snaps, pots n pans, little kids piano, and other light-hearted, oh-so-sweet sounds.

lyrics

I’m late again cuz I was up all night, like I always am
And all my friends say I’ve stopped calling
And I’ve been blowin’ off my to do list, I hate when I do this
Cuz I get lost thinking of you all day long

And this is the unhealthy part about falling in love
It’s not my head, it’s all my heart, when I’m falling in love
And I don’t wanna lose myself when I’m falling in love
… well maybe just a little

I said I’d like to spend some time in Chicago, get to know ya
Cuz I don’t have to be anywhere right now
I’m the kind of guy who’ll just stay somewhere when I feel good there
And I’m feeling good, so I guess I’m staying

And this is the uncertain part about falling in love
It’s not my head, it’s all my heart, when I’m falling in love
And I don’t wanna lose myself when I’m falling in love
… well maybe just a little

I’ve always thought that I gotta go solo
To do what I want in my life
But I would like to find it, this balance
So I can have both this time

So here’s the deal, I’ve got my plans, and you’ve got yours too
But here we feel so intensely
So how bout I’ll sing my songs, and you do your yoga, and I’ll show ya
That we can be that couple who does things our way

And this is the amazing part about falling in love
It’s not my head, it’s all my heart, when I’m falling in love
And I don’t wanna lose myself when I’m falling in love
… well maybe just a little

Yeah, maybe just a little
Cuz we could get a lot
