you’re lighter on your feet and your tongue is looser,
now everyone you meet falls in love with your drunk genius,
when do you come down?
you step into a room and the party starts
to orbit around you and your broken heart, drunk genius,
you attract a crowd,
+++ but if you dried it out, simple distillation,
+++ strange miracle, turn sugar to wine,
+++ is it who you are?  catch it in a jar and we’ll watch it shine
+++ drunk, drunk genius, are you doing fine?

Now I don’t mean to judge, ’cause it’s not my business,
when everything you touch is awash in your drunk genius,
it’s such a lovely sound…
+++++ we all could use some loosening,
+++++ of our screws and of our springs,
+++++ it seems to work for you..

when summer’s sweetest fruit is a distant memory,
we’re left with the booze that we stashed back in the pantry,
that we could pass around..
+++ if you dried it out, simple distillation
+++ strange miracle, turn sugar to wine,
+++ is it who you are?  catch it in a jar and we’ll watch it shine..
+++ if you boiled it down to the very essence
+++ heads, hearts & tails, pour the bitter away,
+++ catch it in a jar, if it’s who you are, can we make it stay?
+++ drunk, drunk genius,
+++ drunk, drunk genius,
+++ drunk, drunk genius..

you’re lighter on your feet when your head is looser,
now everyone you meet falls in love with your drunk genius,
when will you come down?
