Scott Helman Lyrics – Tikka

Yeah I’m walking to your house and it’s kind of cold but I don’t mind
Cause the last beer I had warmed me up and I’m on sort of Main Street singin’ Johnny Cash and I almost get hit by a car and tell this dude to fuck off and he rolls down his window and he’s got this weird mustache and I laugh, he turns around and I run and I get lost but I find my way back
And I see the streetlight, I see McNalley Avenue and I get excited, I see your hedge and your house and the hall light, I get nervous and knock and wait,

Yeah I picked up a few things on the way,

I got a tikka masala,
That’s the right idea,
I got a gram and ten dollars,
That’s the right idea,
And I’m outside your window and nobody’s home,
But I got the right idea

I’m gonna call ya tomorrow,
That’s the right idea,
I can’t wait any longer,
Sure’d be good to see ya,
Now I’m outside your window and nobody’s home,
But I got the right idea

I’m gonna leave now cause your neighbour’s lookin at me like a Russian spy, she’s peekin’ out the window,
I take the back streets and behind your house this kid walks up to me, and asked if I got a light, I say I don’t know, man, I don’t even know where I’m goin’,
I end up at the elementary school where we played when we were kids but you told me not to hopscotch cause that’s what girls did and I sit on the woodchips thinkin’ I’ll smoke away my stash,
Cause you’re out there somewhere and I’m here alone, and that’s that

I got a tikka masala,
That’s the right idea,
I got a gram and ten dollars,
That’s the right idea,
And I’m outside your window and nobody’s home,
But I got the right idea

I’m gonna call ya tomorrow,
That’s the right idea,
I can’t wait any longer,
Sure’d be good to see ya,
Now I’m outside your window and nobody’s home,
But I got the right idea

For all these plans I’ve failed I gave myself the road,
It’s not so bad my good intentions give me hope,
One of these nights I’ll come around and, and you’ll meet me at the door

I’m prepared to wait, so just take your time,
And we’ll get it figured out a little farther down the line,
One of these nights I’ll come around and say,
Baby, I picked up a few things on the way

I got a tikka masala,
That’s the right idea,
I got a gram and ten dollars,
That’s the right idea,
And I’m outside your window and nobody’s home,
But I got the right idea

I’m gonna call ya tomorrow,
That’s the right idea,
I can’t wait any longer,
Sure’d be good to see ya,
Now I’m outside your window and nobody’s home,
But I got the right idea
