​High Hopes In Velvet Ropes

This song is by The Cab and appears on the album Whisper War (2008).

Original video
And baby, take it off
Checkered thighs on a pretty pawn
This vicious velvet ain't enough
So baby, make a move
My neon eyes are set on you
The devil's language tastes of lust

Tell me what can I say (What can I say? What can I say?)
To make your body come this way? (Won't you come this way?)
Only two in a crowded room (A crowded room, a crowded room)
Where others fade away (Others fade away)

It's only a crime if I get caught
Only if I, if I get caught
It's only a line if it gets bought

I woke up 12:05
I left that room with no goodbye
And now I'm on my way back home (That's why I'm telling you)
It's not that your lipstick failed
But girl, I was just born to bail
Do it better on my own

Tell me what can I say (What can I say? What can I say?)
To make your body come this way? (Won't you come this way?)
Only two in a crowded room (A crowded room, a crowded room)
Where others fade away (Others fade away)

It's only a crime if I get caught
Only if I, if I get caught
It's only a line if it gets bought

It's the same game
I play it 'til the give becomes the take
(What can I say? What can I say?)
It's the same game
I play it 'til the bend, the bend becomes the break

And baby, take it off
Checkered thighs on a pretty pawn
This vicious velvet ain't enough
So baby, make a move
My neon eyes are set on you
The devil's language tastes of lust

It's only a line if it gets bought

It's the same game
I play it 'til the give becomes the take
(What can I say? What can I say?)
It's the same game
I play it 'til the give becomes the take
(Won't you come this way?)
It's the same game
I play it 'til the give becomes the take
(What can I say? What can I say?)
It's the same game
I play it 'til the bend, the bend becomes the break
