about this table

Lyrics

She plays games with the stars in the sky
She knows it all and can tell you why
She sees the world in my hands

So what the hell is she doing here?
What the hell is she doing here?

Looks so good, can't wait to taste it
Been all around my head
You hold the water away from me

So what the hell is she doing here?
What the hell is she doing here?

Ain't got no words, ain't got no words
We're singing away, because it makes me feel so fucking good
I can't escape
