lyrics

We took a trip today
Through desert plains and tall cascades
Forgot about the shop
And coming under par

We caught the sunset there
Gasped for the thinnest air
And found we like it better where
We cannot park our cars

Can't have rejection, so I need perfection this time
If I can't show her, I'll call it over tonight

There's not a trophy for
The greatest orator
But that don't mean that I won't try
To win it anyway

Cause I'd love a shiny prize
For most attempts to vocalize
Despite the likely consequence
Of everything I say

Can't have rejection, so I need perfection this time
If I can't show her, I'll call it over tonight

If you think you know
What I'm going to say
You're probably right
I can't help these thoughts
I wish I could
But they just come to my mind

Can't have rejection, so I need perfection this time
If I can't show her, I'll call it over tonight
