Rex Orange County - Corduroy Dreams

[Verse 1]
How could I ignore you?
Trust me I adore you
We’re swimming through our dreams
Kiss me in the shower
For a couple hours
Though we’re only sixteen
And sit down beside me
Don’t call me daddy
Cause that’s just fucking weird
Promise that you'll stay here
You and I can lay here
Until the end of time

But girl, well don't you worry about me
It ain’t new to me, feeling this lonely (Darling)
Girl, don't worry about me
But if you’re ever unhappy
Then maybe, baby, I must let you go
Let you go

[Verse 2]
Baby, now it’s best here, to lay me down and rest here
Let’s dream of Corduroy
Work for what you love to do and I will watch right over you
With your heart, I’ll never toy
And you’re the other half of me
Drink and sleep and laugh with me
Save me from myself
See I’m a fucking basket-case
Until I'm able to see your face
You saved me from myself

Arguably one of the songs that broke Rex Orange Country into the mainstream media, “Corduroy Dreams” initially got released on Soundcloud as a part of his debut album "Bcos U Will Never B Free". Subsequently, the song put him on Two Inch Punch’s radar, providing him a management team. Furthermore, the song even caught the attention of Tyler, The Creator, who would later invite Rex to work on his debut album "Flower Boy". Funnily, Tyler even asked Rex to fly out to LA to work on the album. During his performance at the O2 Academy in Brixton on November 26, 2019 as part of the "Pony" Tour, Rex announced that this was the first song he ever wrote.
