Talking like we used to do
It was always me and you
Shaping up and shipping out
Check me in and check me out
Do you like walking in the rain?
When you think of love, do you think of pain?
You can tell me what you see
I will choose what I believe
Hold on, darling
This body is yours,
This body is yours and mine
Well hold on, my darling
This mess was yours,
Now your mess is mine
Your mess is mine
See you in the marketplace
Walking 'round at 8am
Got 2 hours before my flight
Luck be on my side tonight
You’re the reason that I feel so strong
The reason that I’m hanging on
You know you gave me all the time
Oh, did I give enough of mine?
Hold on, darling
This body is yours,
This body is yours and mine
Well hold on, my darling
This mess was yours,
Now your mess is mine
Bring me to your house
Tell me sorry for the mess
Hey, I don’t mind
You’re talking in your sleep
Out of time
Well, you still make sense to me
Your mess is mine
Your mess is mine
This body’s yours and this body’s mine
Your mess is mine

Surprised to hear this kind of cuttlefish bile on RP. 
 
Apparently cuttlefish bile is a delicacy in some circles, one would imagine it's particularly popular among the Cthulhu cults.  This song seems more like standard fare to me - using most ingredients from that "contemporary new-folk" recipe.  It's pleasant enough; I've certainly heard worse.
  Based on the previous comment,really trying to visualize what hipster crap looks like.  Myself I grew up in the classic rock era, and listening to music such as Blue Cheer, Humble pie and occasionally found myself enjoying the Beegees.  Yes he's very pop, but I find him refreshing and a light spirit.

You sure are awfully free with assessments of what other people hear and think.  Maybe you're misusing the word "you".
Haha- you sound like my Grandpa when I played Steele Dan...
Fiddle-faddle....

I think he's a bit more talented than the rest of those 'used coffee grinds'. This guy's got some good rhythm and can write a good pop tune.

I'm so happy to hear them here. My daughter introduced me to them a few years back and it's a band that has really grown on me. This whole album is pretty cool. Thanks RP {#Clap}
like his sound ... this is a great "driving down hwy 400" kinda song ..
I liked his first big hit Riptide, but figured him to be a one-hit wonder. Turns out he's written quite a few good radio-friendly songs and there's nothing wrong with that.
That's kind of nice. Folky upbeat wistful. But I've heard a lot like it. He reminds me of a half dozen others here on RP, but in way he's not distinctive enough to remind me who those others are.
