​Coming Out In Purple

This song is by Matthew Good.

Getting nervous, getting nervous
As he walks towards her house
The night caving in on the roof of his head
The flowers are getting heavier
And his legs are trying to turn around
And go the other way instead

We are getting very small
We are getting very small
We are getting very small
Very small, we are
We are fading into the background
We are fading into the background

If roses are red and violets are blue
We are coming out in purple
Roses are red, these violets are blue
Tonight we are coming out in purple

Okay, we're back and we have resumed
We have resumed walking down the street
We have decided to think about something else
When we get there, when we get there then we can think about what we are doing
Think about what you are doing, what you are doing
There is, there is, there is a telephone pole in front of you
Just go around it
Just, just ease yourself around it

It's not as hard as it looks
It's not as hard as it looks, yeah
It's not as hard as it looks
It's not as hard as it looks
We are, we are fading into the background
We are, we are backing into the foreground
We are, we are thinking about something else
We are thinking about something else
Thinking about something else
Just thinking about something else

Violets are red and roses are blue
We are coming out in purple
Violets are red, these roses are blue
Tonight we are coming out in purple

Twelve phone calls, count them, twelve!
They wanna know why she's going out with this guy
They are seriously threatening never to speak to her again
Never again, never again
You know, you know the blow dryer won't work
And she can't find, she can't find a matching shirt
We are beginning to doubt this
We are beginning to doubt

Precious like a tidal wave the doorbell rings
Her mother waves her down to answer for it, answer for it
We, we are accountable for our own actions, by the way
We have to answer for it, answer for it
We, we're gonna answer for it
For once you're gonna answer for it
Answer for it
Answer for it

He leans the flowers against the door
What just happened, he's not sure
But he hopes she's feeling better
We are fading into the background
We are fading into the background
