Bleachers - Don't Take the Money

| Kerri

Will we fight, stay up late?
In my dreams I'm to blame
Different sides of the bed
Roll your eyes, shave my head
Now we're stuck in the storm
We were born to ignore
And all I got is a chance to just sit
(I'm in love and you've got me, runaway)

You steal the air out of my lungs, you make me feel it
I pray for everything we lost, buy back the secrets
Your hand forever's all I want
Don't take the money
Don't take the money

I've been casually listening to 80s-influenced Bleachers (often featuring awesome guest vocals) for a couple of years, but only read up on who they are/he is this week! How fun to learn it is the solo project of fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff (pun intended), who has also co-written hits for Sara Bareilles, Taylor Swift, and Lorde, among others! It's so much more interesting to be a knowlegable/nerdy music fan. Anyway, looks like Antonoff is getting ready to release another album (his third) as this track is one of two singles released recently, matching his m.o. in 2015 leading up to the release of Terrible Thrills. I love a happy, anthemic, dancy music (i.e. 80s, i.e. Bleachers) so I'm looking forward to hearing whatever is next from this guy.
