Stay out super late tonight
Put a little something in our lemonade

We're half awake in a fake empire
Tiptoe through our shiny city
Do our gay ballet on ice

We're half awake in a fake empire
Turn the light out, say goodnight
Let's not try to figure out everything at once

We're half awake in a fake empireStay out super late tonight
Put a little something in our lemonade

We're half awake in a fake empire
Tiptoe through our shiny city
Do our gay ballet on ice

We're half awake in a fake empire
Turn the light out, say goodnight
Let's not try to figure out everything at once

We're half awake in a fake empire
