"White Women" (2014)




Jealous (I Ain't With It) lyrics - Chromeo

[Verse 1:]
I got strung up from our loving
I wish you cared to see
But she only cares when she's got the time
And I fret so much about our loving
I wish she'd let me be
But our destiny's got us intertwined

[Pre-Chorus:]
And is it really my fault
I get a shiver when I see you with those other guys
Wearing the jacket I bought
I can't help but lose my temper and I don't know why

[Chorus:]
I get jealous, but I'm too cool to admit it
When the fellas, talk to my girl I ain't with it
I get jealous, but I'm too cool to admit it
When the fellas, talk to my girl I ain't with it
I ain't with it, I ain't with it,
I ain't with it, I ain't with it,
I ain't with it, I ain't with it,
I ain't with it, I ain't with it,
I ain't with it, I ain't with it,
I ain't with it, I ain't with it

[Bridge:]
What is she thinking, too much uncertainty
Why can't she give some sort of sign
You know and I know, a thing or two about loyalty
Ooh, but that girl don't pay no mind

[Pre-Chorus]

[Chorus]

[Verse 2:]
I get strung up from her loving
I wish she cared to see
But she only cares when she so inclined
And I fret so much about her loving
I wish she'd let me be
But her destiny/s got us so intertwined
Back in 2011, I decided
To not let this play with my mind
But when the boys from out of town
They come back around
I feel like committing a crime, yeah

[Chorus]

Come Alive lyrics - Chromeo

[Verse 1:]
I asked your boss for your number
I never wondered which way we'd go
You woke me up from my slumber
Now let me make you work slow
It's not a lot, but all I want to do
Is skip town on a weekend with you
There's still so much to discover
There's still a lot we don't know

[Hook: x2]
Come alive
Give it up girl before you lose your mind
Come alive
Got you under pressure, doing overtime

[Verse 2: Toro Y Moi]
You're working double just to have a life
I like to think that it's just a phase
Treading anything that takes your time
Seconds pass and you're on your way
Help me understand what you need
Help me figure out what isn't right
Consider swimming if you start to sink
Or you could get left behind

[Hook]

[Bridge:]
The night shift
The day shift
We could go anywhere and they won't say shit
I wish I could love you down right now on the kitchen floor
Cause we got something so real
However they feel doesn't really matter no more
So let's see you walk up out of that door

[Hook]

I can tell if you realize

Over Your Shoulder lyrics - Chromeo

All the grass is greener everywhere you look
So many girls out there I could write a book
That one's ass is leaner
This one's like Serena
But I think your silhouette is meaner

And even though you've got small breasts
But to me they look the best
I confess
I wanna go home and get you undressed

See your problems of self-esteem
Could be self-fulfilling prophecies
So probably your best policy is to talk to me

[Chorus x2:]
Stop looking over your shoulder
Cause if it was up to me I would make you feel right

All the grass is greener everywhere you look
So many people stare they got you scared of the girls out there
This one's cola-bottle size
And that one's more of a model size
I know you heard this a hundred times
To me what matters is what's inside
And a little backside too
Is that bad, is that taboo?
Can I get a bird's eye view?

You see, your problems of self-esteem
Could be self-fulfilling prophecies
So arguably your best policy should be talking to me
Talking to me

[Chorus x2]

So next time that you're feeling down
Turn your frown into a crown
Put yourself in an evening gown
And I'll roll around
Rip it off
Break you off
JetBlue Airways taking off
Couple of days where the sand is soft
Oh, aren't you glad you took the weekend off?

Cause it's those little imperfections that make beauty in my eyes
I wanna be in the intersection of your thighs
And you worry about your size
It's nonsense
It's not a contest
And besides
If it was a contest, you'd win it
I wanna take a bath with you in it
Bathroom sex, you in it
I did it, I mind
I'll do it with you if you wanna try
I've seen you cracking a smile
Guess I have to stay for a while

[Chorus]

[Refrain:]
Over your shoulder
Love is what you're searching for
Over your shoulder
You don't have to look anymore

Sexy Socialite lyrics - Chromeo


You're a sexy socialite
All you do is socialize
And you're always so polite
And your outfits tantalize
When you wanna spend the night
All you do is roll your eyes
They crush on you
(Ooh, they crush on you)
[x2]

[Chorus]
You're out alone
So young and full of promise
(Young and full of promise)
I could be your boyfriend and your counselor
Cause the night might damage ya
[x2]

You're a sexy socialite
I wish you were a socialist
Instead of worrying about your name on the list
(You insist)
That you should get in there for free
You're too cool to pay a fee
And the owner is like your family
Somebody help me!

You're a sexy socialite
All you do is socialize
As you make your way to the back of the VIP
Watch out for girls that push
Guys that grab your tush
At any moment they'll make you flip

But you're a sexy socialite
And I guess it pays
Cause you've been out and about for the last four days
And now everybody knows ya
They all want to approach ya
And I can't even catch your gaze

What a shame
It's so lame

[Chorus x2]

Women are eyeing me
Their men are buying me
Drinks at the bar
You can't go far
In this society
So why you coming at me, homie
With so much acrimony?
Your testimony's phony
And the truth is you don't know me

You're a sexy socialite
(No I'm not, no I'm not)
[x4]

Sexy socialite
Always so polite
Wanna spend the night
Ooh, they crush on you
Ooh, they crush on you, girl
[x11]

Always so polite

Lost On The Way Home lyrics - Chromeo (feat. Solange)

[Interlude 1 - Solange:]
Who's gonna to have your time, when it's down to the minute? (Baby)
Who's gonna have your time?
Who's gonna have your back, when the shove comes a pushin'? (Uh, Ooh Baby)
Who's gonna have your back?

[Verse 1 - Dave 1:]
I know you do
I'm pretty sure you had it since I've met you
I listen to you talk, and it's like you forgetin' about all the bullshit that we've been through
But I've paid my dues, whatever you choose
I took the burden off of you too
I don't know why it's such a struggle to make you come around to my point of view

[Bridge - Solange:]
And I know it's gonna take time
But you know that I care
But baby I know it's gonna take time
But you know that I'm there
And when it gets down to it

[Chorus - Dave 1:]
I can never leave I'm too proud
I've got my mind made up, my feet on the ground
When you're up all night and you never make a sound
Where I'm not too far if you look around

[Interlude 2 - Solange:]
Who's gonna have your right, when your left needs leanin'? (Ooh Baby)
Who's gonna take your side?
Who's gonna hold you down, when your heart beat's beatin'?
Ooh Baby You Know

[Verse 2 - Dave 1:]
I know it's you
That's no excuse
And we can't go back, cause there's no pact and there's no truce
In other words, it's just no use
I told you first, when you know the truth
I know you're thirsty for a change,
but nothing can arrange the strangeness that we're goin' through

[Bridge - Solange:]
And I know it's gonna take time
But you know that I care
But baby I know it's gonna take time
But you know that I'm there
And when it gets down to it

[Chorus - Dave 1:]
I can never leave I'm too proud
I've got my mind made up, my feet on the ground
When you're up all night and you never make a sound
Where I'm not too far if you look around

[Bridge - Solange:]
And I know it's gonna take time
But you know that I care
But baby I know it's gonna take time
But you know that I'm there
And when it gets down to it

[Outro - Dave 1:]
We had much of everything
Your touch was everything
Went dutch on everything
But got lost on the way home

We had much of everything
Your touch was everything
Went dutch on everything
But got lost on the way home
Lost on the way home [x7]

Play The Fool lyrics - Chromeo

It's just one of those hazy memories
I was in the mood for loving
And later that night when I fell asleep
I kept thinking of it

I saw her in the mirror
Thought I could get near enough to whisper
It's just one of those types of memories
I could barely miss her

[Chorus:]
Don't let me play the fool, yeah
And get carried away (carried away)
Don't let me play the fool, yeah
And get carried away
Because I might end up fooling around with you
Yeah, I might end up fooling around with you

A smoky atmosphere
I had nothing to fear
The night was young
A message loud and clear
She spoke into my ear
My heart was stung

I looked to my left, looked to my right
Only one girl was outta sight
And I wanted her
It's just one of those types of memories
And I'm still thinking of her

[Chorus]

And the sparks are flying, it's no wonder why
And the lights are shining bright enough
They're almost blinding my eye
I feel like my fate and your fate are combined
On the floor tonight
Cause no one escapes from lust

Yeah, I might end up fooling around with you [x4]

Hard To Say No lyrics - Chromeo

[Chorus:]
It's hard to say no
It's hard to say no
It's hard to say no
It's hard to say no

[Verse:]
I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't help myself
This temptation is something else
When you're far away the isolation gets the best of me
It's a recipe I know all to well

And I try to vocalise
Exactly what I'm doing wrong
When you're face is filled with tears
Coz you tried to compromise
But you really can't go on
You've had it up to here

[Pre-Chorus:]
Now I would always want you
As a lover as a friend
But some days a man needs space from his relationship
It ain't hard to comprehend

[Chorus:]
It's hard to say no
It's hard to say no

[Verse:]
I've been around the world and back
I know what you associate with that
I know you have trouble trusting me
But I held my own (but I held my own)
It doesn't take away from the fact
Something changed the minute I came back
I have'nt felt the same from not seeing you so long

Now I try to rationalise
Exactly what I'm doing wrong
When your face to face with fears
I know you tried to compromise
But you really can't go on
You've had it up to here

[Pre-Chorus:]
Now I would always want you
As a lover as a friend
But some days a man needs space from his relationship
It ain't hard to comprehend

[Chorus:]
It's hard to say no
It's hard to say no
It's hard to say no
It's hard to say no

Now I would always want you
As a lover as a friend
But some days a man needs space from his relationship
It ain't hard to comprehend

Ezra's Interlude lyrics - chromeo (feat. Ezra Koenig)

[Ezra Koenig:]
I don't wanna feel it for the second time
And I don't wanna call you up or wait for a sign
I just can't pretend I'm gonna make you mine

[Chromeo:]
I never wanna be the last to know
So I guess I'll just go back to laying low

Old 45s lyrics - Chromeo

[Verse 1:]
Dudes just step to ya with a corny line
Asking for your name, saying what's your sign?
You turn around like boy quit talking to me

He could pick you up in a limousine
You'd look back like whachu mean
Just worried about more important things

Boys are non-committal
Always in the middle
It bothers you a little
Bothers you a little
Why can't we be like Mom & Dad?

You don't wanna settle
Didn't you get the memo
You only get a date if you're walking in stilettos
This is enough to drive you mad

[Chorus x3:]
If you think romance is dead and gone
Find an old jukebox full of 45's
Pop a nickel in it and it all comes back

[Verse 2:]
Write her up, maybe out of touch
You only see schmucks
And you've really had enough
It's not adding up and you just don't understand

Straight shooter, he's a straight shooter
Cut to the chase and he asked if he could do her
PS he had a ring on his left hand

Boys are non-committal
Always in the middle
It bothers you a little
It bothers you a little
Why can't we be like Mom & Dad?

Don't wanna settle
Didn't you get the memo
You only get a date if you're walking in stilettos
This is enough to drive you mad

[Chorus x2:]
If you think romance is dead and gone
Find an old jukebox full of 45's
Pop a nickel in it and it all comes back to me

Somethingood lyrics - Chromeo

An electrifying moment
A blast of lightning through the storm
Should have seen it as an omen
But I chose to carry on

This is what those tales are made of
It was rather true to form
A boy sees girl then his knees just drop
Heartbeat stops

[Pre-Chorus:]
I care for you
And I'll switch the word up if you want me to
I care for you
But caring is so see-through
The sequel is a thing we call love

[Chorus:]
I can't leave you alone
It's rattling my bones
I can feel it
It's just the start and this is something good [x2]

Something good, something good, something good, this is something good [x4]

I can never lie
I'm sweating but my hands are dry
Say the word and I'm the first one running
I'm the first one running

And every little move you make is no mistake
So don't just take me for a pretender
I'm a contender

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]

I can't leave you alone
It's rattling my bones
I can feel it
I can feel it
I can feel it
(It's just the start and this is something good)
[x2]

Stop it right there
Stop it right there
Oh, stop it right there
Stop it right there

You think love is a thing of the past
I never felt so real
I want something that's gonna last
I never felt those chills

You think love is a thing of the past
I never felt so real
(I never felt so real)
I want something that's gonna last
I never felt those chills
(I never felt those chills)

You think that love is just a thing of the past
(Thing of the past)
I want someone that's gonna make it last
(Make it last)
[x2]

Stop it right there [x4]

Frequent Flyer lyrics - Chromeo

Have you ever met a frequent flyer
Dressed in all white attire
Sipping on a Gray's Papaya
Wanna take you higher

Jet lag, you must be tired
Watch out, you might misfire
Anything your heart desires
Wanna take you higher

[Pre-Chorus:]
Influential, moving past your security
Presidential, real utensils, priority

[Chorus:]
(Higher, higher, higher)
One two three
You and me
Can you move at my velocity
(Higher, higher, higher)
Don't miss a beat
First class seat upon my fleet

When you hear the beat
When you feel the need
Turn the cabin pressure on
Hurry, cause I'll soon be gone
My instincts never lie
And you're right up my aisle
I'll be yours and you'll be mine
Put the freak in the frequent flyer

Yup, it's the boy with glasses
Giving you boarding passes
And if the flight's delayed
You might miss all your morning classes

Trust me girl, you look dashing
Even with your seatbelt fastened
Are you into fashion
Cause I noticed our outfits are matching

[Pre-Chorus]
[Chorus]

[Spoken:]
Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking
We'd like to welcome you on board this flight 777 to Minneapolis
Flight duration is around three hours, fifteen minutes
We're expecting a fairly smooth ride, maybe a couple bumps
Once airborne, the flight crew will be coming around the cabin serving drinks
Local time is 6:35 pm, the weather is clear skies
Once again, thank you for traveling
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the flight

[Chorus x2]

Fall Back 2u lyrics - Chromeo

[Verse 1:]
Lets find the feeling once again
Cause maybe you and I just can't be friends (Ohh yeah)
Lets ride the freeway 'til the end
When loving is so good you can't pretend

[Hook:]
I know I left you hanging
But I'm a right my wrongs
I'm a write you love letters
Like I wrote this song
Gonna put a plan together
Gonna put it all in motion
Every single thing I gotta do to fall back 2U

[Chorus:]
You ought to know I had a lot on my mind (oh yeah)
But it's never too late to try [x2]

[Verse 2:]
Lets finally figure it out
If there's a problem we can air it out
I can't stand to be in a relationship when it stops
If we hit a wall, then watch
That could give us something to talk about
I could be there to catch the ball when it drops

[Hook:]
I know I left you hanging
But I'm a right my wrongs
Gonna write you love letters
Like i wrote this song
Gonna put a plan together
Gonna put it all in motion
Every single thing I gotta do to fall back 2U

[Chorus:]
You ought to know I had a lot on my mind (oh yeah)
But it's never too late to try [x2]

It's never too late to try
I never wanna make you cry
Our love's too great to attenuate
So let's not say goodbye [repeat]

"Business Casual" (2010)




Hot Mess lyrics - Chromeo

[Female Speaking:] You're a hot mess
You act like you got nothing to lose
But I've already lost my temper

I put my loving on the line for you, lady
But my spirits were low
I would have committed a crime for you, baby
Yeah, it got out of control

I know my temper's been kinda crazy
I need somebody. What? I need someone
Your love is real but I just feel suffocated
I feel so lonely. What? I feel so numb

[Female Speaking:] I thought we had this conversation already
Do you really want to go through this all over again

The way I was acting was just fine but then lately
You sorta noticed a shift
Every day was Christmas time for you, lady
You got showered with gifts

But you could hear it in my voice
I was getting kinda aloof
And I don't really have a choice
I guess I gotta tell you the truth

I know my temper's been kinda crazy
I need somebody. What? I need someone
Your love is real but I just feel suffocated
I feel so lonely. What? I feel so numb

[Female Speaking:] I don't what you want from me
I mean, I'm not a bloody social worker

I know my temper's been kinda crazy
I need somebody. What? I need someone
Your love is real but I just feel suffocated
I feel so lonely. What? I feel so numb

What?
I need somebody, I need someone
I feel so lonely, I feel so numb
