Aim and Ignite

Aim and Ignite

So if you are a regular visitor to this blog, my twitter, or facebook you know that I am a little obsessed with The Format. Of course I was heart broken when they broke-up, but a while ago Nate Ruess announced that he was in a new band and they were releasing an album…well I may be a little late (distractions, what distractions?) in realizing it, but Fun is here! I realized this when I watching AMtv this morning and they showed a bumper with a weathe map (a bumper is a short promo clip between commercial breaks and shows) featuring a voice that was incredibly familiar and a tune that was incredibly catchy. Of course MTV is silly and doesn’t list the artists in their bumpers ANYWHERE, but I recognized Nate’s voice and found Fun (great name!) on myspace and learned that the song is called “Walking the Dog”  and is on their new album Aim & Ignite.

Here are the lyrics:

Walking alone ’cause the night is dead
Crossed my mind when I crossed the bridge

How you lost your mind and your wrist got bruised
And you wanted better love well it’s sleeping in your bedroom
Hold on, stay on my side, don’t go

If you could see me whoever I am
It’s not like the movies it’s not all skin and bones
So come on love(come on, come one, come all and go)
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
I will not let you go

Now I’m walking alone ’cause the night is dead
My feet don’t glide like they did back then
When I would call you up so we could shoot the moon
These days I’m left to howl in tune

Hearts do break and I must admit
I’ve got a better set of chords so I might have been faking it
Think I might have only cried just once

If you could see me whoever I am
It’s not like the movies it’s not all skin and bones
So come on love(come on, come one, come all and go)
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah

I will not let you go

After all the show, after all the boys of summer had gone
Amid all the confusion, these friends I’ve been losing
I always thought from the start I’d be the one moving on
I guess I’ll never know where all the boys of summer will go
But I’ll miss what we made, all the days were not wasted
There are some things I may never know

How you lost your mind and your wrist got bruised
And you wanted better love well it’s sleeping in your bedroom
Hold on, stay on my side, don’t go

If you could see me whoever I am
It’s not like a movie it’s not all skin and bones
So come on love(come on, come one, come all and go)
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
I will not let you go

If you could see me whoever I am
It’s not like a movie it’s not all skin and bones
So come on love(come on, come one, come all and go)
Nah nah nah nah nah nah nah
I will not let you go
