​Because I Asked You

This song is by Eleanor Friedberger and appears on the album New View (2016).

Why'd would you like to take it slow?
Hold me till I let you go
Or treat me like a tennis pro,
Why would you wanna do that?
Why would you wanna do that?
Why would you wanna dim the light?
Let that record play all night?
Scrambled yolk with the whites,
Why would you wanna do that?
Why would you wanna do that?
Because I asked you
Because I asked you to!

Why would you wanna tell the truth?
A finished me, with my medical proof
A jump with me above the roof
Why would you wanna do that?
Why would you wanna do that?
Why would you wanna hold me tight?
Talk me out my stage friend
Help me out with my re-writes
Why would you wanna do that?
Why would you wanna do that?
Because I asked you
Because I asked you to!

I looked in your eyes
I am so polite
Think about it,
I'll be here all night.

Why would you wanna let me sleep?
Look before you across the street
In my dreams, between my sheets
Why would you wanna do that?
Why would you wanna do that?
Why would you wanna take it slow?
Tell me something I don't know
When I say so, let it go
Why would you wanna do that?
Why would you wanna do that?
Because I asked you
Because I asked you to.
Because I asked you
Because I love you.

I looked in your eyes
I am so polite
Just think about it,
I'll be here all night.
