Riff: The Internet – “Cloud of Our Own”

Sep 24, 2013

Fit together perfectly, so suddenly you’re all I need/How do you keep holding me?/Suddenly controling me/They say that you’re wrong for me/But I like that you belong to me

from Cloud Of Our Own lyrics by The Internet

Syd gets whimsical in her attempt to swoon another. She approaches her with subtle pecks around the neck, showering her forbidden love with an endless array of compliments. Flattery will get you everywhere and Syd’s not wasting any time with formalities; [LISTEN].
