Chromeo Somethingood

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]

My soul is made of songs.

Chromeo Come Alive

[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

Chromeo When The Night Falls

When the night falls, oh yeah

You can tell by the way that you feel

Make the right calls, oh yeah

And just hope that she remembers you still

I’m searching for a good time

In a city where there’s nobody else around

And I know it’s been a little awhile

But your number is the only one I found

Now we’ve had our share of ups and downs

In the years I came through your town

But let’s put it all to rest

And let’s just have a night of one on one

When the conversations have begun

Just put your head on my chest

There’s something about you, girl

And it’s rather strange

I want come back to you, girl

And rekindle the flame

When the night falls, oh yeah

You can tell by the way that you feel

Make the right calls, oh yeah

And just hope that she remembers you still

Well you probably think I’m a fast-talking romantic

With a high-fallutin’ ways

But it’s all about the impression you made

On the first time I met you

That stayed with me for days

And now I want that feeling back

But I’m not sure where to get it

But you have the answer to that

And you say it’s nothing but fun and games

But over the phone it’s not the same

So let’s try to cross paths

There’s something about you, girl

And it’s rather strange

I want come back to you, girl

And rekindle the flame

When the night falls, oh yeah

You can tell by the way that you feel

Make the right calls, oh yeah

And just hope that she remembers you still

Ooh hooh ooh hooh

Ooh hooh ooh hooh, yeah

When the night falls, oh yeah

You can tell by the way that you feel

Make the right calls, oh yeah

And just hope that she remembers you still

Chromeo Old 45s

[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

Chromeo Juice

Relationships ain’t a democracy

I’m good if you just stay on top of me

It ain’t no mystery who’s in control (in control)

You’re sittin’ pretty, unreplacable

When we’re out and havin’ dinner

You get all your drinks for free

I can see who sent them over

It ain’t complements of me

I can hear ’em, they’re talkin’

I stay in my own lane

I can’t blame ’em, though

‘Cause everybody knows…

That you’ve got the juice, yeah, yeah

That’s why I keep pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

Pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

You’ve got the juice, baby

That’s why I keep pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

Pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

It’s usually freezin’ when I act this way

When I act this way

But, it’s cuffin’ season in the month of May

In the month of May

They let you in, but I just stay in line

I just stay in line

The consequence of being way too fine

When we’re out and havin’ dinner

You get all your drinks for free

I can see who sent them over

It ain’t complements of me

I can hear ’em, they’re talkin’

I stay in my own lane

I can’t blame ’em though

‘Cause everybody knows…

That you’ve got the juice, yeah, yeah

That’s why I keep pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

Pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

You’ve got the juice, baby

That’s why I keep pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

Pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

I’ve been a handful, but now I got it right

I’d be a damn fool if I didn’t recognize

I gotta keep up, so I should keep it tight

I got a main squeeze, so I better squeeze it right

I’ve been a handful, but now I got it right

I’d be a damn fool if I didn’t recognize

I gotta keep up, so I should keep it tight

I got a main squeeze, so I better squeeze it right

You’ve got the juice, ooh

Pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

Pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

Ooh

Pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

Pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

You’ve got the juice, yeah, yeah

Pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

You’ve got the juice, baby

Pressin’ ya, pressin’ ya

I’ve been a handful, but now I got it right (handful)

I’d be a damn fool if I didn’t recognize (damn fool)

I gotta keep up, so I should keep it tight

I got a main squeeze, so I better squeeze it right (squeeze it, baby)

I’ve been a handful, but now I got it right (got it right)

I’d be a damn fool if I didn’t recognize (recognize)

I gotta keep up, so I should keep it tight (keep it tight)

I got a main squeeze, so I better squeeze it right

You’ve got the juice

Chromeo Rage!

You always told me you wanted something more,

I couldn’t give you what you were looking for.

Is that a reason to stab me in the back?

Now tell me baby what you think about that.

Is it revenge? Is it a sin?

Is that the way you treat your mother-fucking friend?

I’m just saying, I do no wrong,

I just felt like writing this song.

Rage! You got me in a state of rage.

I’ve been acting kind of strange!

I don’t know how else to behave.

Rage! You got me in a state of rage.

I’ve been acting kind of strange!

I don’t know how else to behave.

You say you’re sorry, you say that you still care,

Deep down you’re mad, you think I did my share.

If so, we’re fair, to put the blame on me,

You made a mistake, now surely can’t you see?

Are you just selfish, or do you wanna be free?

You have your ways and I can’t tell you how to be.

You have your morals, and you know what’s right from wrong,

I just hope you hear the lyrics to this song.

Rage! You got me in a state of rage.

I’ve been acting kind of strange!

I don’t know how else to behave.

Rage! You got me in a state of rage.

I’ve been acting kind of strange!

I don’t know how else to behave.

Is it you, is it me? Is it worth the agony?

What do I do when I wake up but face reality?

Another friend, tell me when this is gonna end,

I can’t go through another day thinking that we could fade away.

You always told me you wanted something more,

I couldn’t give you what you were looking for.

Is that a reason to stab me in the back?

Now tell me baby what you think about that.

Is it revenge? Is it a sin?

Is that the way you treat your mother-fucking friend?

I’m just saying, I do no wrong,

I just felt like writing this song.

Rage! You got me in a state of rage.

I’ve been acting kind of strange!

I don’t know how else to behave.

Rage! You got me in a state of rage.

I’ve been acting kind of strange!

I don’t know how else to behave.

Chromeo Needy Girl

She says I remind her of her father,

and I know she likes it.

She wants a man that’s got his game locked tight.

I think she reminds me of my mother,

when she knows I like it.

I want a woman with the same brown eyes.

And girl, you got it so bad

when the only boy you know is your dad.

And boy, you got it so wrong

when you look into her eyes

and all you really see is your mom. (Ohh)

Cause you’re a momma’s boy, momma’s boy.

She tried to take me to the movies,

but I couldn’t enjoy it.

I didn’t even let her sneak a touch.

She asked me “Whats the problem,

maybe we can talk about it.

You’re thinking ’bout your mother way too much.”

And girl, you got it so bad

when the only boy you know is your dad.

And boy, you got it so wrong

when you look into her eyes

and all you really see is your mom. (Ohh)

Cause you’re a momma’s boy, momma’s boy.

Momma’s boy, momma’s boy.

You’re a momma’s boy, momma’s boy.

You’re just a momma’s boy, momma’s boy. [x3]

You’re just a… Oww

She says I remind her of her father,

and I know she likes it.

She wants a man that’s got his game locked tight.

Chromeo Hot Mess

[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

Chromeo She’z N Control

She’s in control, she holds my soul.

That wicked woman’s got me by the balls.

Nowhere to run, nowhere to go.

Her love has got me at her beck and call.

She’s in control, she holds my soul.

That wicked woman’s acting out of line.

She wants to fight, argues all the time.

I try to run but there’s nowhere to hide.

I feel she takes me on a merry-go-round

When she’s nice to me in front of her friends.

But when they’re gone and there’s no one around,

That’s exactly when the madness begins.

I feel she takes me on a merry-go-round

When she’s nice to me in front of her friends.

But when they’re gone and there’s no one around,

That’s exactly when the madness begins.

I feel she takes me on a merry-go-round

When she’s nice to me in front of her friends.

But when they’re gone and there’s no one around,

That’s exactly when the madness begins.
