LyricsEdit

Somewhere only we know, somewhere only we know

Meet me at the cross street corner by the grove
Cooking up ideas like my brain is on a stove
Tryna keep it hush, can you keep it on the low?
I'm talking about the place only, only we know
Thunderbird speed in my rearview mirror
Leave it all behind take the wheel disappear
Rucksack packed how much longer till your here
Called to say your Far'East better move it rocketeer

We do it primo, we do it primo
We do it primo, just meet me at the top
(Somewhere only we know)
We do it primo, we do it primo
We do it primo, see the secrets that I got
Somewhere only we know

You can call me NASA cause we about to blow
I'm talking about the place only, only we know
Swiver our own way just ignore the dotted line
My face is like a page so you can read my mind
We don't need to talk when our bodies wanna mime
My hearts a 10k racing beats double-time
Forget about the map now I'm lost within your eyes
Tripped up feeling frank spelling out the fear inside

We do it primo, we do it primo
We do it primo, just meet me at the top
(Somewhere only we know)
We do it primo, we do it primo
We do it primo, see the secrets that I got
Somewhere only we know

Imma gonna need another minute
You're about to be up in my business
Sweeter than vanilla you're delicious
Slayin all of this like it was Christmas
Wishin that forever was existent
At least we got to see and got to witness
Hanging by a thread I need a hero
So why don't we go, somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know, somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know, somewhere only we know

We do it primo, we do it primo
We do it primo, just meet me at the top
We do it primo, we do it primo
We do it primo, see the secrets that I got
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know
