about

A song about a hotel concierge who falls in love with a prize fighter on the run from bookies.

lyrics

Hide when the room service comes,
I can't risk your face and I want it for myself.
I know we can't spend till the end of time
living at the Marriott Hotel.

But hey!
As long as we can pamper through,
I feel like I've won the lot.
Don't like to fight but I'll throw down for you,
oh, Jasper, Jasper.

Teach me your scissor kick.
Protect me from the world.
Oh, teach me your roundhouse kick
and I'll protect your innocence.

I'd seen so many faces at the front desk
a marching order of men I'd never know.
All reminders of empty memories yet to grow.

Till you showed up,
looking for a safe place to stay,
all bloody and brawny.
I don't like to run but I'll race with you
till the end of the ring, Jasper.
Jasper.

Teach me your strong right hook
and I'll keep you off the books
safe from the crooked bookies
if you'll keep me against your chest.

Jasper I know you didn't throw that fight.

It's a miracle we've made it this far...
the stunt they think you pulled,
the stunt we're pulling now.
If they ever find you I'll turn them away
or else give my life for you,
I hope it won't ever come to that
but I want you to know that I love you.

Teach me your scissor kick. (Teach me to fight!)
Protect me from the world.
Oh, teach me your roundhouse kick
and I'll protect your innocence.

Teach me your strong right hook
and I'll keep you off the books
safe from the crooked bookies
if you'll keep me against your chest.
