You look a little dressed up
You’re acting way too smart
Your face a little bit flushed
For a walk in the park

And you’re clutching your phone
As you walk in the door
And your smile's got a twist
You’re looking so hardcore

If you’ve something to say
Don’t be too direct
'Cause I feel a little fragile
Don’t hit the nail on the head

(And) I said, baby, baby, let me down real slow
Oh (No) no no no

There’s a swish in your step
There’s a gleam in your eye
Are you colouring your hair
With some new kind of dye?

But the first one to blink
Is the first one to fall
I don’t want a confrontation
I've got my back to the wall

I said, baby, baby, let me down real slow
Oh no no no
I said let me stretch out in the afterglow
Oh no no no no...

Let me down real slow
Oh no no no no...
Oh baby, baby...
