lyrics

UPBEAT
Words & Music - Joel Boyea

When someone asks, “Is that your better half?”
We just look at them, and we laugh
I'll never be more that a happy third
We'll never be more than theater absurd

But you're keeping me upbeat when I'm down low
You're picking me up when there's no where to go
I feel the summer heat when I'm with you
Don't want to cool it down whatever we get into
We keep it upbeat – keep it upbeat

You call me Marcus Brutus all the time
Like I'm guilty of planning some big crime
I'm always talking crap about myself
You say, “Put that blade back up on the shelf”
It's back on the shelf

You're keeping me upbeat when I'm down low
You're picking me up when there's no where to go
I feel the summer heat when I'm with you
Don't want to cool it down whatever we get into
We keep it upbeat – keep it upbeat

But you have to be on guard
When the tempo drops, people get bizarre
You fight them off hand to hand
I'll be in my safe spot. I hope you understand

Keep it upbeat when I'm down low
You're picking me up when there's no where to go
I feel the summer heat when I'm with you
Don't want to cool it down whatever we get into
We keep it upbeat – keep it upbeat

Keeping it upbeat, upbeat...
