lyrics

You said, “Can you keep my secret?
‘Cause I don’t want to need this anymore.”
Blind in love with me--I wish you could see we’ve been keeping score.
Feeling like a right brain with no left, thinking that you might change but who says there’s a rule about it
And you know it’s too much, I’m too rough, and you’re too young to give up
Never tried hard enough, to be your man I understand that

I'll make your soul shout, but I know you want to break out
I hope that you’ve got your doubts
I know you want to break out

But you can’t let go
You can’t let go

Hold up--who’s left? Just you and me's gonna have to be enough
I guess it's gonna take some time
But I need you to hear me that I never meant to play you.
Just toss me out before there’s nothing left to say but
“I’m lonely, and you’re gone.”
Girl, you got to move on.
Why reason right and wrong when I’ll just string you along?
It’s too much, I’m too rough. Are you too young to be strong?
We’ve been breaking for so long that you can’t even trust my song.

I'll make your soul shout, but I know you want to break out.
I hope that you’ve got your doubts
I know you want to break out.

You wanna, you wanna
But you can’t let go.
You can't let go.

No I can’t keep your secret.

about

The Rooks New York, New York

The Rooks are a New York City-based sextet just funky
enough to make your mother nervous. The band draws on an eclectic catalogue of influences (the melodic sensibilities of Stevie Wonder, the staggered backbeats of J Dilla, the vocal intricacies of The Dirty Projectors), as they dance the line between music that makes you think and feel-good-down-in-your-gut soul. ... more
