FREE download! Enjoy. Here's all we ask - spread the love on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, spam all your friends + families + coworker's inboxes with it, etc. etc. We're independent artists just trying to create and play the type of music we love. If you're excited about it too, getting it out there word-of-mouth is incredibly helpful. Thank you!! -Chris and Bjorn

Baby baby wont you please
Desperately I need some space
I know that you’ve been moving on
But I just can’t bear to see your face
Now I know we’re far from soulmates but I gotta say it would’ve been nice, would’ve been nice
Now my mind’s gotta release, the euphoric dream of your winsome eyes

I’m not trying to say take me back, but baby take me back
I’m not trying to feel alone, next time I’ll fix it when things go bad
I’m not trying to say I’m crazy about you, no, I won’t say that

I see you struttin’ round with your new man
How could this all go down without a sign?
The writing on the wall is clear
I’m never gonna waste your time
But darling could you tell me how I’m ever gonna be as free, without you in my life
Now don’t get me wrong, I really do hope that you're as happy as you suggest

I’m not trying to say, not trying to say
