about

The coolest part of this song is that the lyrics includes the word "Kryptonite"! Working off of a guitar groove, the track is built on feel. A pop melody filled with harmonies, and psychedelic rock overtones - a classic retro vibe with a summer sound... but "maybe I'm wrong" ...

lyrics

Well maybe I’m the bad guy here
But maybe things are so unclear
That thoughts get twisted up inside the places that you like to hide

And even though it makes no sense
You go and build another fence
Another obstacle to face
A memory that you can’t erase

Well maybe you’re right – Maybe I’m wrong
Maybe it’s time we move along

Well as for me there’s just one girl
I’ve wanted in this great big world
Now I can see so much potential draining like its expediential

You lie awake in bed each night
Just building up the kryptonite that takes away my super powers
Then claim I send you tainted flowers

Well maybe you’re right – Maybe I’m wrong
Maybe we’re playing different songs
Well maybe you’re right – Maybe I’m wrong
Maybe it’s time we move along

I don’t know why it’s so uncool
And why I have to play the fool
When I’m the one who wants to stay when you just want to turn away

And though you say it’s no big deal
It doesn’t change the way I feel
The seconds turning into hours and all I send is tainted flowers

Well maybe you’re right – Maybe I’m wrong
Maybe it’s time we move along
