Relient K

Relient K (/rɨˈlaɪ.ɨnt ˈkeɪ/) is an American rock band formed in 1998 in Canton, Ohio, by Matt Thiessen, Brian Pittman, and Matt Hoopes during the band's junior year in high school and their time at Malone University. The band is named after guitarist Hoopes' automobile, a Plymouth Reliant K car, with the spelling intentionally altered to avoid trademark infringement over the Reliant name. more »

To know her is to love her
I'm going undercover
To catch a glimpse
But not get caught

But to see her
Could be worse
If I don't get my head straight first
On second thought I guess I'll not

She's almost brighter than the Sun
Seems to me to be unfair
When you consider everyone
Who pales when they compare
When they compare

Can't hold a candle to her
'Cause all the moths get in the way
And they'll begin to chew her
Entire attire until it frays

For she outshines anyone
Whoever might dare to bask in
The same candlelight

Oh please don't seat us in the back
With all the insects and the trash
She is a lady, I'm the tramp
Collecting stares from pairs close by
Then flutters in a butterfly
Ew, just a moth drawn to the lamp

She's like an ancient artifact
Something you're lucky to have found
She'll pinch the nerves in all the necks
When she turns those heads around
Those heads around

Can't hold a candle to her
'Cause all the moths get in the way
And they'll begin to chew her
Entire attire until it frays

She outshines anyone
Who ever might dare to bask in
The same candlelight

Who ever might dare to bask in
The same candlelight
She's almost brighter than the Sun
Seems to me to be unfair
When you consider everyone
Who pales when they compare
When they compare

Can't hold a candle to her
'Cause all the moths get in the way
And they'll begin to chew her
Entire attire until it frays

For she outshines anyone
Who ever might dare to bask in
The same candlelight

In the same candlelight
