about

This song is about most of the people I fall in love with and probably myself too. “Why don’t you like what loves you?” is the last line of the chorus and it pretty much sums it up. Why do we always need the chase and why are we turned off when people don’t want to be chased? People who just want to love us back?

lyrics

Sorry that I love you
I know that’s not your style
Sorry you can have it
I know that means you won’t call for a while, a while
You’ll be busy dizzy dammit it all baby

Chase the moon and the stars in your eyes
Quick to jump from a dreamy goodbye
Driving back from your house late at night
Looking up you’re looking down
From the angle of the clouds
Why don’t you like what loves you

Sorry you can taste this
Sweet, bitter part of my heart
Sorry you can hold it
I know that means you’ll have to set it down, down
You’re just busy dizzy dammit it all baby

Chase the moon and the stars in your eyes
Quick to jump from the dreamy goodbyes
Driving back from your house late at night
Looking up you’re looking down
From the angle of the clouds
Why don’t you like what loves you

You have nothing to prove to me
You have nothing to lose with me
You could have every part of me
But you need the chase
You need the chase, baby

Sorry that I love you
I know that’s not your style
Sorry that I see you
I know you don’t want someone to turn around
Around, Around, Around
Why don’t you like what loves you?
