about

This is The Incident, from our new album, Drama Queen. This song addresses a serious problem in modern society: Getting stuck in the friend zone...

lyrics

Verse #1

We've been talking for hours
We killed a couple bottles of wine
The party's finally dying
and we've had such a wonderful time

I should've seen this coming
You've been nervous all night
sending out your signals
I should've known what was on your mind

Pre-chorus

Oh no! Now you're scooting closer
Oh no! Now you're making your move
And I say...

Chorus

Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Cause, if you try to kiss me
You're really gonna freak me out

Verse #2

We've been friends forever
I dated your brother junior year
My mom was your third grade teacher
you and I would be too weird

Pre-chorus

Oh no! Now you're moving in closer
Oh no! I'm gonna have to shut you down
And I say...

Chorus

Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Cause, if you try to kiss me
You're really gonna freak me out


Spoken word

Hey dude, you're a really cool guy
you're funny, you're cute
and I'm sure you're a good boyfriend
but we have a lot of history together
and I've never really thought of you “that way”
I mean, it's just like
you're just like
a brother to me...

Chorus

Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Please don't try to kiss me (please don't try to kiss me)
Cause, if you try to kiss me
You're really gonna freak me out
