“Clap Your Hands”
She dreams a little less each night: she says that hope is so overrated. And she keeps her pretty lips pursed oh so tightly: your word’s never worth the chance that you take to break it. She says she’s never been in love: bitter like this I can’t help but think and wonder... Tell me who have you been dreaming of? Right now. We never had a chance (never had a chance). Circumstances were already stacked against our favor. Come on just clap your hands. Come on just clap your hands. And all we ever knew of our hopes and hearts were promises that’ll never come. We’re breaking our hearts just for the sound, obsessed with our desperation. We probably should’ve walked away by now. And these are the words I scream aloud, I confess for the admiration. I’d kill for the chance to turn it all inside-out. But it’s all that she has tonight (all she has tonight). So she’ll keep down until she feels right.
